وَلَقَدۡ أَرۡسَلۡنَا رُسُلًا مِّن قَبۡلِكَ وَجَعَلۡنَا لَهُمۡ أَزۡوَٰجًا وَذُرِّيَّةً ۚ وَمَا كَانَ لِرَسُولٍ أَن يَأۡتِىَ بِـَٔايَةٍ إِلَّا بِإِذۡنِ ٱللَّهِ ۗ لِكُلِّ أَجَلٍ كِتَابٌ
We did send messengers before thee, and appointed for them wives and children: and it was never the part of a messenger to bring a sign except as Allah permitted (or commanded). For each period is a Book (revealed).<br/>
And when they derided him for having many wives, the following was revealed: And indeed We sent messengers before you, and We assigned to them wives and seed, children - and you are like them; and it was not for any Messenger, from among them, that he should bring a sign, save by God's leave, because they are servants enthralled [by Him]. For every term, period, there is a Book, wherein is inscribed its delimitation.
