[033:044] Their greeting on the Day they shall meet Him will be "Salâm [Peace (i.e. the angels will say to them: Salâmun 'Alaikum)]!" And He has prepared for them a generous reward (i.e. Paradise).


[033:045] O Prophet (Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam])! Verily, We have sent you as witness, and a bearer of glad tidings, and a warner,


[033:046] And as one who invites to Allâh [Islâmic Monotheism, i.e. to worship none but Allâh (Alone)] by His Leave, and as a lamp spreading light (through your instructions from the Qur'ân and the Sunnah – the legal ways of the Prophet ).


[033:047] And announce to the believers (in the Oneness of Allâh and in His Messenger Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) the glad tidings, that they will have from Allâh a great bounty.


[033:048] And obey not the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and harm them not (in revenge for their harming you till you are ordered). And put your trust in Allâh, and Sufficient is Allâh as a Wakîl (Trustee, or Disposer of affairs). (Tafsir Al-Qurtubi)


[033:049] O you who believe! When you marry believing women, and then divorce them before you have sexual intercourse with them, no 'Iddah [divorce prescribed period, see (V.65:4)] have you to count in respect of them. So give them a present, and set them free (i.e. divorce) in a handsome manner.


[033:050] O Prophet (Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam])! Verily, We have made lawful to you your wives, to whom you have paid their Mahr (bridal-money given by the husband to his wife at the time of marriage), and those (slaves) whom your right hand possesses – whom Allâh has given to you, and the daughters of your 'Amm (paternal uncles) and the daughters of your 'Ammât (paternal aunts) and the daughters of your Khâl (maternal uncles) and the daughters of your Khâlât (maternal aunts) who migrated (from Makkah) with you, and a believing woman if she offers herself to the Prophet [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam], and the Prophet [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam] wishes to marry her – a privilege for you only, not for the (rest of) the believers. Indeed We know what We have enjoined upon them about their wives and those (slaves) whom their right hands possess, in order that there should be no difficulty on you. And Allâh is Ever Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
