37. Wa-ith taqoolu lillathee anAAama Allahu AAalayhi waanAAamta AAalayhi amsik

llahu ahaqqu an takhshahu falamma qada zaydun minha wataran

zawwajnakaha likay la yakoona AAala almu/mineena harajun fee azwaji adAAiya-ihim

itha qadaw minhunna wataran wakana amru Allahi mafAAoola


37. Behold! Thou didst say to one who had received the grace of Allah and thy favour:

"Retain thou (in wedlock) thy wife, and fear Allah." But thou didst hide in thy heart that

which Allah was about to make manifest: thou didst fear the people, but it is more fitting

that thou shouldst fear Allah. Then when Zaid had dissolved (his marriage) with her, with

the necessary (formality), We joined her in marriage to thee: in order that (in future) there

may be no difficulty to the Believers in (the matter of) marriage with the wives of their

adopted sons, when the latter have dissolved with the necessary (formality) (their

marriage) with them. And Allah.s command must be fulfilled.

38. Ma kana AAala a


nnabiyyi min harajin feema farada Allahu lahu sunnata Allahi fee

allatheena khalaw min qablu wakana amru Allahi qadaran maqdoora


38. There can be no difficulty to the Prophet in what Allah has indicated to him as a duty.

It was the practice (approved) of Allah amongst those of old that have passed away. And

the command of Allah is a decree determined.
