ترجمة معاني سورة التحريم
باللغة الإنجليزية من كتاب ترجمة معاني القرآن الكريم - عادل صلاحي
Prophet, why do you prohibit yourself something that God has made lawful to you in your desire to please your wives? God is much-forgiving, ever-merciful.
God has already ordained for you [believers] a way to release you from such oaths. God is your Lord Supreme. He alone is the All-Knowing, the Wise.
The Prophet told something in confidence to one of his wives. When she divulged it, and God made this known to him, he spoke of a part of it and passed over a part. When he thus let her know of that, she asked, ‘Who has told you this?’ He said: ‘The All-Knowing, the All-Aware told me’.
Would that you two turn to God in repentance, for your hearts have swerved! But if you support each other against him, know that God is his protector, and that, therefore, Gabriel, all righteous believers and the angels will stand behind him.
Were he to divorce you, his Lord may well give him in your stead spouses better than you: women who surrender themselves to God, true believers, devout, penitent, who worship in humility and reflect thoughtfully, be they women previously married or virgins.
Believers! Guard yourselves and your families against a fire fuelled by people and stones, over which are appointed angels, stern and mighty, who never disobey God in whatever He commands them and always do what they are bidden to do.
Unbelievers! Make no excuses today. You will only be requited for what you used to do.
Believers! Turn to God in sincere repentance. It may well be that your Lord will efface your bad deeds and admit you into gardens through which running waters flow, on a day when God will not disgrace the Prophet or those who believed with him. Their light will spread out before them, and on their right. They will say: ‘Our Lord! Perfect our light for us and forgive us. You certainly have power over all things’.
Prophet, strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites, and press hard on them. Their ultimate abode is hell, and how vile a journey’s end.
God has given examples of unbelievers: Noah’s wife and Lot’s wife. They were married to two of Our righteous servants but betrayed them. Their husbands could be of no avail to them against God. They were told: ‘Enter both of you the Fire with all those who will enter it’.
God has also given examples of believers: Pharaoh’s wife, who said: ‘My Lord! Build me a mansion in heaven near You, and save me from Pharaoh and his doings, and save me from the wrongdoing folk’.
And Mary, the daughter of [Imran, who guarded her chastity; and We breathed of Our spirit into her. She accepted the truth of her Lord’s words and His revealed Books. She was truly devout.
