In the Name of All‚h, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


[058:001] Indeed All‚h has heard the statement of her (Khaulah bint Tha'labah) that disputes with you (O Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]) concerning her husband (Aus bin As-S‚mit), and complains to All‚h. And All‚h hears the argument between you both. Verily, All‚h is All-Hearer, All-Seer.


[058:002] Those among you who make their wives unlawful to them by Zih‚r they cannot be their mothers. None can be their mothers except those who gave them birth. And verily, they utter an ill word and a lie. And verily, All‚h is Oft-Pardoning, Oft-Forgiving.


[058:003] And those who make unlawful to them (their wives) by Zih‚r and wish to free themselves from what they uttered, (then penalty in that case is) the freeing of a slave before they touch each other. That is an admonition to you (so that you may not repeat such an ill thing). And All‚h is Well-Acquainted with what you do.


[058:004] And he who finds not (the money for freeing a slave) must fast two successive months before they both touch each other. And he who is unable to do so, should feed sixty Mas‚kin (needy). That is in order that you may have perfect faith in All‚h and His Messenger. These are the limits set by All‚h. And for the disbelievers is a painful torment.


[058:005] Verily, those who oppose All‚h and His Messenger (Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]), will be disgraced as those before them (among the past nations) were disgraced. And We have sent down clear Ay‚t (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.). And for the disbelievers is a disgraceful torment


[058:006] On the Day when All‚h will resurrect them all together (i.e. on the Day of Resurrection) and inform them of what they did. All‚h has kept account of it, while they have forgotten it. And All‚h is Witness over all things.




(V.58:2) Zih‚r is the saying of a husband to his wife: You are to me like the back of my mother (i.e. unlawful for me to approach).


(V.58:5) See the footnote of (V.3:85).
