220. (Their bearings) on this life and the Hereafter. They ask thee concerning orphans.

Say: "The best thing to do is what is for their good; if ye mix their affairs with yours, they

are your brethren; but Allah knows the man who means mischief from the man who

means good. And if Allah had wished, He could have put you into difficulties: He is

indeed Exalted in Power, Wise."

221. Do not marry unbelieving women (idolaters), until they believe: A slave woman

who believes is better than an unbelieving woman, even though she allures you. Nor

marry (your girls) to unbelievers until they believe: A man slave who believes is better

than an unbeliever, even though he allures you. Unbelievers do (but) beckon you to the

Fire. But Allah beckons by His Grace to the Garden (of bliss) and forgiveness, and makes

His Signs clear to mankind: That they may celebrate His praise.
