[Noor 24:21] O People who Believe! Do not follow the footsteps of the devil; and whoever follows the footsteps of the devil – so he will only bid the indecent and the evil; and were it not for Allah’s munificence and His mercy upon you, none of you would ever become pure – but Allah purifies whomever He wills; and Allah is All Hearing, All Knowing.
[Noor 24:22] And may not those who possess superiority (in wealth) among you and possess capacity, swear not to give to the relatives and to the needy, and to immigrants in Allah's cause; and they should forgive and forbear; do you not like that Allah may forgive you? And Allah is Oft Forgiving, Most Merciful.
[Noor 24:23] Indeed those who accuse the innocent virtuous, believing women – upon them is a curse in this world and in the Hereafter; and for them is a terrible punishment.
[Noor 24:24] On the day when their tongues and their hands and their feet will testify against them, regarding what they used to do.
[Noor 24:25] On that day Allah will give them their true punishment, and they will know that Allah only is the Clear Truth.
[Noor 24:26] Vile women for vile men, and vile men for vile women; and virtuous women for virtuous men, and virtuous men for virtuous women; such are innocent of what these people say; for them are forgiveness, and an honourable sustenance.
[Noor 24:27] O People who Believe! Do not enter the houses
except your own until you obtain permission and have conveyed peace upon
its inhabitants; this is better for you, in order that you may ponder.
