* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ لاَّ جُنَاحَ عَلَيْهِنَّ فِيۤ آبَآئِهِنَّ وَلاَ أَبْنَآئِهِنَّ وَلاَ إِخْوَانِهِنَّ وَلاَ أَبْنَآءِ إِخْوَانِهِنَّ وَلاَ أَبْنَآءِ أَخَوَاتِهِنَّ وَلاَ نِسَآئِهِنَّ وَلاَ مَا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَانُهُنَّ وَٱتَّقِينَ ٱللَّهَ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ كَانَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ شَهِيداً }

They the Prophet’s wives would not be at fault with regard to socialising with their fathers or their sons or their brothers or their brothers’ sons or their sisters’ sons or their own believing women or what their right hands own of slavegirls or male servants in seeing them or conversing with them without a screen. And fear O women God in what you have been commanded. Surely God is Witness to all things with nothing being hidden from Him.
