And marry the women and men and the improved ones of your male slaves and your female slaves among you who are single. If they are poor, Allah will enrich them out of His Virtue. And Allah is All-Embracing (His Bestowals, His Blessings are abundant), All-Knowing.
And let those who do not find the means to marry keep themselves chaste, until Allah enriches them of His Virtue. And those who ask for a writing (of emancipation) from among those whom your right hands possess (your male and female slaves) give them the writing (of emancipation) if you know any good in them, and give them of the wealth which Allah has given you. And do not compel your slave girls to prostitution, when they desire to protect their chastity, in order to seek the frail good of this world’s life. Whoever compels them, then surely after their compulsion, Allah is Oft-Forgiving (the One converts the sins into merits), Most Merciful (the One that manifests with His mercy attribute).
And certainly We have sent down to you clear Verses and an example of those who have passed away before you, and an admonition to those who have piety.
Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. A likeness of His Light is as a niche (a source that gives off light) in which is a lamp, the lamp is in a glass, the glass is as it were a brightly shining star, lit from an oil of a blessed tree that is neither in the east nor in the west. The oil whereof gives light on its own, even if no fire touches it. (It is) a light upon light. Allah delivers to His Light whom He wills and Allah sets forth parables for mankind. And Allah is All-Knowing of everything.
(Allah’s Light is) in houses which Allah has permitted His Name to be exalted and remembered (repeated) in them. There they glorify Him in the mornings and the evenings.
Men whom neither merchandise nor selling diverts from the Remembrance (Dhikr) of Allah, and the keeping up of the Prayer and the giving of the alms (that) they fear a Day when the hearts and eyes will be overturned (of terror).
