* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn


{ وَكَيْفَ تَأْخُذُونَهُ وَقَدْ أَفْضَىٰ بَعْضُكُمْ إِلَىٰ بَعْضٍ وَأَخَذْنَ مِنكُم مِّيثَٰقاً غَلِيظاً }

How shall you take it that is by what right when each of you has been privily with the other through sexual intercourse which validates the dowry and they have taken from you a solemn covenant a binding pledge and that is what God commanded namely that they should be retained honourably or set free virtuously.
