24:12 Why not, when you heard it, think the believing men and the believing women good of themselves and say, "This (is) a lie clear?"
24:13 Why (did) not they bring for it four witnesses? Then when not they brought the witnesses, then those near Allah, they (are) the liars.

And if not (for the) Grace of Allah upon you and His Mercy not (would) have been pure among you anyone ever, but Allah purifies whom He wills. And Allah (is) All-Hearer, All-Knower.
24:22 And not let swear those of virtue among you and the amplitude of means that they give (to) the near of kin, and the needy and the emigrants in (the) way (of) Allah. And let them pardon and let them overlook. (Do) not you like that Allah should forgive you? And Allah (is) Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
24:23 Indeed, those who accuse the chaste women, the unaware women (and) the believing women, are cursed in the world and the Hereafter. And for them (is) a punishment great.
24:24 (On a) Day, will bear witness against them their tongues, and their hands and their feet for what they used (to) do.

24:26 Evil women (are) for evil men, and evil men (are) for evil women. And good women (are) for good men and good men (are) for good women. Those (are) innocent of what they say. For them (is) forgiveness and a provision noble.
24:27 O you who believe! (Do) not enter houses other (than) your houses until you have asked permission and you have greeted [on] its inhabitants. That (is) best for you so that you may pay heed.
24:28 But if not you find in it anyone, then (do) not enter it until permission has been given to you. And if it is said to you "Go back," then go back; it (is) purer for you. And Allah of what you do (is) All-Knower.

And let them their head covers over their bosoms, and not (to) display their adornment except to their husbands, or their fathers or fathers (of) their husbands or their sons or sons (of) their husbands or their brothers or sons (of) their brothers or sons (of) their sisters, or their women or what possess their right hands or the attendants having no physical desire among [the] men or [the] children who (are) not aware of private aspects (of) the women. And not let them their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment. And turn to Allah altogether O believers! So that you may succeed.
24:32 And marry the single among you and the righteous among your male slaves, and your female slaves. If they are poor, Allah will enrich them from His Bounty. And Allah (is) All-Encompassing, All-Knowing.
24:33 And let be chaste those who (do) not find (means for) marriage until Allah enriches them from His Bounty. And those who seek the writing from (those) whom possess your right hands, then give them (the) writing if you know in them any good and give them from the wealth of Allah which He has given you. And (do) not compel your slave girls to [the] prostitution, if they desire chastity that you may seek temporary gain (of) the life (of) the world. And whoever compels them, then indeed, Allah after their compulsion (is) Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
24:34 And verily, We have sent down to you Verses clear, and an example of those who passed away before you, and an admonition for those who fear (Allah).
24:35 Allah (is the) Light (of) the heavens and the earth. (The) example (of) His Light (is) like a niche in it (is) a lamp; the lamp (is) in a glass, the glass as if it were a star brilliant (which) is lit from a tree blessed - an olive, not (of the) east and not (of the) west, would almost its oil glow, even if not touched it fire. Light upon Light. Allah guides to His Light whom He wills. And Allah sets forth the examples for the mankind. And Allah of every thing (is) All-Knower.
24:36 In houses (which) Allah ordered that they be raised and be mentioned in them His name. Glorify [to] Him in them in the mornings and (in) the evenings.
24:37 Men - not distracts them trade and not sale from (the) remembrance of Allah and (from) establishing the prayer and giving zakah. They fear a Day will turn about therein the hearts and the eyes.
24:38 That Allah may reward them (with the) best (of) what they did, and increase them from His Bounty. And Allah provides whom He wills without measure.
24:39 But those who disbelieve, their deeds (are) like a mirage in a lowland, thinks it the thirsty one (to be) water, until when he comes to it, not he finds it (to be) anything, but he finds Allah before him, He will pay him in full his due. And Allah (is) swift (in) the account.
24:40 Or (is) like (the) darkness[es] in a sea deep, covers it a wave, on it a wave, on it a cloud, darkness[es] some of it on others. When he puts out his hand hardly he (can) see it. And (for) whom not Allah (has) made for him a light, then not for him (is) any light.
24:41 Do not you see that Allah - glorify Him whoever (is) in the heavens and the earth and the birds (with) wings outspread? Each one verily knows its prayer and its glorification. And Allah (is) All-Knower of what they do.
24:42 And to Allah (belongs) (the) dominion (of) the heavens and the earth. And to Allah (is) the destination.
24:43 Do not you see that Allah drives clouds then joins between them then makes them (into) a mass, then you see the rain come forth from their midst? And He sends down from (the) sky, [from] mountains within it [of] (is) hail and He strikes with it whom He wills and averts it from whom He wills. Nearly (the) flash (of) its lighting takes away the sight.
24:44 Allah alternates the night and the day. Indeed, in that surely is a lesson for those who have vision.
24:45 And Allah created every moving creature from water. Of them (is a kind) who walks on its belly, and of them (is a kind) who walks on two legs, and of them (is a kind) who walks on four. Allah creates what He wills. Indeed, Allah on every thing (is) All-Powerful.
24:46 Verily, We have sent down Verses clear. And Allah guides whom He wills to a path straight.
24:47 And they say, "We believe in Allah and in the Messenger and we obey." Then turns away a party of them after that. And not those (are) believers.
24:48 And when they are called to Allah and His Messenger, to judge between them, behold, a party of them (is) averse.
24:49 But if is with them the truth, they come to him (as) promptly obedient.
24:50 Is (there) in their hearts a disease or do they doubt or they fear that Allah will be unjust to them and His Messenger? Nay, those [they] (are) the wrongdoers.
24:51 Only is (the) statement (of) the believers when they are called to Allah and His Messenger to judge between them (is) that they say, "We hear and we obey." And those [they] (are) the successful.
24:52 And whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger and fears Allah and (is) conscious of Him, then those [they] (are) the successful ones.
24:53 And they swear by Allah strong their oaths that if you ordered them, surely they (would) go forth. Say, "(Do) not swear. Obedience (is) known. Indeed, Allah (is) All-Aware of what you do."
24:54 Say, "Obey Allah and obey the Messenger, but if you turn away then only upon him (is) what (is) placed on him, and on you (is) what (is) placed on you. And if you obey him, you will be guided. And not (is) on the Messenger except the conveyance [the] clear."
24:55 Allah (has) promised those who believe among you and do righteous deeds, surely He will grant them succ in the earth, as He gave succession to those who (were) before them, and that He will surely establ for them their religion which He has approved for them, and surely He will change for after their fear, security (for) they worship Me, not they associate with Me anything. But whoever disbelieved after that, then those [they] (are) the defiantly disobedien
24:56 And establish the prayer and give zakah and obey the Messenger, so that you may receive mercy.
24:57 (Do) not think those who disbelieve (can) escape in the earth. And their abode (will be) the Fire and wretched is the destination.
24:58 O you who believe! Let ask your permission those whom possess your right hands and those who (have) not reached puberty among you (at) three times, before (the) prayer (of) dawn, and when you put aside your garments at noon and after (the) prayer (of) night. (These) three (are) times of privacy for you. Not on you and not on them any blame after that (as) moving about among you, some of you among others. Thus Allah makes clear for you the Verses, and Allah (is) All-Knower, All-Wise.
24:59 And when reach the children among you the puberty then let them ask permission as asked permission those who (were) before them. Thus Allah makes clear for you His Verses. And Allah (is) All-Knower All-Wise.
24:60 And postmenopausal among the women who (do) not have desire (for) marriage, then not is on them any blame that they put aside their (outer) garments, not displaying their adornment. And that they modestly refrain (is) better for them. And Allah (is) All-Hearer, All-Knower.
24:61 Not is on the blind any blame and not on the lame any blame and not on the sick any blame and not on yourselves that you eat from your houses or houses (of) your fathers or houses (of) your mothers or houses (of) your brothers or houses (of) your sisters or houses (of) your paternal uncles or houses (of) your paternal aunts or houses (of) your maternal uncles or houses (of) your maternal aunts or what you possess its keys or your friend. Not is on you any blame that you eat together or separately. But when you enter houses then greet [on] yourselves a greeting from Allah blessed (and) good. Thus Allah makes clear for you the Verses so that you may understand.
24:62 Only the believers (are) those who believe in Allah and His Messenger, and when they are with him for a matter (of) collective action, not they go until they (have) asked his permissi Indeed, those who ask your permission, those [those who] believe in Allah and His Messenger. So when they ask your permission for some affair of theirs, then give permission to whom you will among them, and ask forgiveness for them (of) Allah. Indeed, Allah (is) Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
24:63 (Do) not make (the) calling (of) the Messenger among you as (the) call (of) some of you (to) others. Verily, Allah knows those who slip away among you under shelter. So let beware those who oppose [from] his orders lest befalls them a trial or befalls them a punishment painful.
24:64 No doubt! Indeed, to Allah (belongs) whatever (is) in the heavens and the earth. Verily, He knows what you (are) on [it], And (the) Day they will be returned to Him then He will inform them of what they did. And Allah of every thing (is) All-Knower.
