Ummul Momineen – Wives of Prophet Muhammad

[24:11] Surely they (hypocrites) who concocted the lie (Ayesha committing adultery at Iffik) are a party from among you. Do not regard it an evil to you; nay, it is good for you. Every man of them shall have what he has earned of sin; and (as for) him who took upon himself the main part thereof, he shall have a grievous chastisement.

[24:12] Why did not the believing men and the believing women, when you heard it, think well of their own people, and say: This is an evident falsehood?

[24:13] Why did they not bring four witnesses of it? But as they have not brought witnesses they are liars before Allah.

[24:14] And were it not for Allah's grace upon you and His mercy in this world and the hereafter, a grievous chastisement would certainly have touched you on account of the discourse which you entered into.

[24:15] When you (companions) received it with your tongues and spoke with your mouths what you had no knowledge of, and you deemed it an easy matter while with Allah it was grievous.

[24:16] And why did you (companions) not, when you heard it, say: It does not beseem us that we should talk of it; glory be to Thee! This is a great calumny?

[24:17] Allah admonishes you that you should not return to the like of it ever again if you are believers.

[24:18] And Allah makes clear to you the communications; and Allah is Knowing, Wise.

[24:19] Surely (as for) those who love that scandal should circulate respecting those who believe, they shall have a grievous chastisement in this world and the hereafter; and Allah knows, while you do not know.

[24:20] And were it not for Allah's grace on you and His mercy, and that Allah is Compassionate, Merciful.

[33:6] The Prophet has a greater claim on the faithful than they have on themselves, and his wives are (as) their mothers; and the possessors of relationship have the better claim in the ordinance of Allah to inheritance, one with respect to another, than (other) believers, and (than) those who have fled (their homes), except that you do some good to your friends; this is written in the Book.

[33:28] O Prophet! Say to your wives: If you desire this world's life and its adornment, then come, I will give you a provision and allow you to depart a goodly departing

[33:29] And if you desire Allah and His Messenger and the latter abode, then surely Allah has prepared for the doers of good among you a mighty reward.

[33:30] O wives of the prophet! Whoever of you commits an open indecency, the punishment shall be increased to her doubly; and this IS easy to Allah.

[33:31] And whoever of you is obedient to Allah and His Messenger and does good, We will give to her, her reward doubly, and We have prepared for her an honorable sustenance.

[33:32] O wives of the Prophet! You are not like any other of the women; If you will be on your guard, then be not soft in (your) speech, lest he in whose heart is a disease yearn; and speak a good word.

[33:33] And stay in your houses and do not display your finery like the displaying of the ignorance of yore; and keep up prayer, and pay the poor-rate, and obey Allah and His Messenger.

[33:34] And keep to mind what is recited in your houses of the communications of Allah and the wisdom; surely Allah is Knower of subtleties, Aware.

[33:55] There is no blame (of Hijab) on them (wives of Prophet) in respect of their fathers, nor their brothers, nor their brothers' sons, nor their sisters' sons nor their own women, nor of what their right hands possess; and be careful of (your duty to) Allah; surely Allah is a witness of all things.

[66:1] O Prophet! Why do you forbid (honey) for yourself that which Allah has made lawful for you; you seek to please your wives; and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

[66:2] Allah indeed has sanctioned for you the expiation of your oaths and Allah is your Protector, and He is the Knowing the Wise.

[66:3] And when the prophet secretly communicated a piece of information to one of his wives (Ayesha), but when she informed (others) of it, and Allah made him to know it, he made known part of it and avoided part; so when he (Muhammad) informed her (Ayesha) of it, she said: Who informed you of this? He said: The Knowing, the one Aware, informed me.

[66:4] If you both (Ayesha and Hafsa) turn to Allah, then indeed your hearts are already inclined (to this); and if you back up each other against him, then surely Allah it is Who is his Guardian, and Jibreel and - the believers that do good, and the angels after that are the aiders.

[66:5] Maybe, his Lord, if he divorce you, will give him in your place wives better than you, submissive, faithful, obedient, penitent, adorers, fasters, widows and virgins.
