Translation

O mankind! reverence your Guardian-Lord, who created you from a single person, created, of like nature, His mate, and from them twain scattered (like seeds) countless men and women;- reverence Allah, through whom ye demand your mutual (rights), and (reverence) the wombs (That bore you): for Allah ever watches over you.

Tafsir

An-Nisaa' (the Women) Medinese: [consisting of] 176 or 177 verses, revealed after [soorat] al-Mumtahana. O people, of Mecca, fear your Lord, that is, His punishment by being obedient to Him, Who created you of a single soul, Adam, and from it created its mate, Eve (Hawwaa'), from one of his left ribs, and from the pair of them, Adam and Eve, scattered, separated and spread, many men and, many, women; and fear God by whom you claim [your rights] from one another (tassaa'aloona: the original taa' [of tatasaa'aloona] has been assimilated with the seen; a variant reading has tasaa'aloona), so that one of you says to the other, 'I ask you, by God.', or 'For God's sake.'; and, fear, kinship ties, lest you sever them (a variant reading [of wa'larhaama, 'and kinship ties'] is wa'l-arhaami, as a supplement to the pronoun contained in bihi [sc. God]). They used to implore one another by ties of kinship. Surely God has been watchful over you, heedful of your deeds, for which He will requite you, that is to say, He is ever possessed of such an attribute.
