C. 188 | [33:28-52] The Prophet’s household is not for worldly
Ends: his consorts have a place
And dignity beyond ordinary women
They must recite and proclaim the Signs
Of God. For women have spiritual virtues
And duties like into men. God decrees
No unhappy wedlock: fear not
To dissolve such and provide what is right
And fitting for the service of God. High
Is the Prophet’s position, and he must order
His household as best befits his work
And duties. God doth watch all things.
O Prophet! Say to thy Consorts: “If it be that ye desire the life of this world, and its glitter,—then come!1 I will provide for your enjoyment and set you free in a handsome manner.
