Translation

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).

Tafsir

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.
