the Holy Qur'an

Behold! Thou didst say to one who had received the grace of God and thy favour: "Retain thou (in wedlock) thy wife, and fear God." But thou didst hide in thy heart that which God was about to make manifest: thou didst fear the people, but it is more fitting that thou shouldst fear God. Then when Zaid had dissolved (his marriage) with her, with the necessary (formality), We joined her in marriage to thee: in order that (in future) there may be no difficulty to the Believers in (the matter of) marriage with the wives of their adopted sons, when the latter have dissolved with the necessary (formality) (their marriage) with them. And God's command must be fulfilled. (33:37)

O Prophet! Why holdest thou to be forbidden that which God has made lawful to thee? Thou seekest to please thy consorts. But God is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. (66:1)

Move not thy tongue concerning the (Qur'an) to make haste therewith. (75:16)

It is for Us to collect it and to promulgate it: (75:17)

But when We have promulgated it, follow thou its recital (as promulgated): (75:18)

(The Prophet) frowned and turned away, (80:1)

But what could tell thee but that perchance he might grow (in spiritual understanding)?- (80:3)

Or that he might receive admonition, and the teaching might profit him? (80:4)

As to one who regards Himself as self-sufficient, (80:5)

To him dost thou attend; (80:6)

Though it is no blame to thee if he grow not (in spiritual understanding). (80:7)

But as to him who came to thee striving earnestly, (80:8)

And with fear (in his heart), (80:9)

Of him wast thou unmindful. (80:10)
