Translation

And marry not women whom your fathers married,- except what is past: It was shameful and odious,- an abominable custom indeed.

Tafsir

And do not marry women whom (maa means man) your fathers married, unless it be a thing of the past, which is forgiven you; surely that, marrying them, is obscene, vile, and abominable (maqtan, means it results in maqt, 'severe hate', from God), an evil way, [an evil] path is this.
