52. It is not lawful for thee (to marry more) women after this, nor to change them for

(other) wives, even though their beauty attract thee, except any thy right hand should

possess (as handmaidens): and Allah doth watch over all things.

53. O ye who believe! Enter not the Prophet's houses,- until leave is given you,- for a

meal, (and then) not (so early as) to wait for its preparation: but when ye are invited,

enter; and when ye have taken your meal, disperse, without seeking familiar talk. Such

(behaviour) annoys the Prophet: he is ashamed to dismiss you, but Allah is not ashamed

(to tell you) the truth. And when ye ask (his ladies) for anything ye want, ask them from

before a screen: that makes for greater purity for your hearts and for theirs. Nor is it right

for you that ye should annoy Allah.s Messenger, or that ye should marry his widows after

him at any time. Truly such a thing is in Allah.s sight an enormity.
