Ahmed Raza Khan: Mohammed Aqib Qadri:
And do not marry the women who were wedded to your fathers (and grand fathers), except what has already passed; that is indeed an act of shame and great wrong; and an evil way.
And marry not women whom your fathers married,- except what is past: It was shameful and odious,- an abominable custom indeed.
And marry not those women whom your fathers married, except what hath already happened (of that nature) in the past. Lo! it was ever lewdness and abomination, and an evil way.
