Translation

By (the mystery of) the creation of male and female;-

Tafsir

and [by] the One Who (maa either functions as man, 'the One Who', or it is related to a verbal action) created the male and the female, Adam and Eve, or every male and female - the hermaphrodite, although problematic for us, is [in fact] either male or female according to God, and therefore a person [actually] commits perjury if he speaks with one [thinking that] because he has sworn not to speak with a male or a female; [he may do so with a hermaphrodite].
