Ahmed Ali

There is no harm if they come before their fathers or their sons, or their brothers and their brothers' and sisters' sons, or their women folk or captive maids they possess. Follow the commands of God. Verily God is witness to everything.



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (it is no sin for them) the wives of the prophet (pbuh) as well as the wives of the believers (with their fathers) that their fathers should enter in on them or converse with them, (or their sons: or their brothers, or their brothers sons, or the sons of their sisters) from the father's side or the mother's side (or of their own women) the women who belong to their own religion; for it is unlawful for a muslim woman to strip herself of her clothes in front of jewish, christian or magian women, (or their slaves) i.e. women slaves, not male slaves. (o women! keep your duty to allah) fear allah about all these in relation to their entering in on you and their conversation with you. (lo! allah is witness over all things) relating to your works.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : 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.
