The Verse of Purification

The verse of purification is part of the 33rd verse of Surah al-Ahzab of Qur'an, which says:


"O wives of the Prophet, whoever of you should commit a clear immorality - for her the punishment would be doubled two fold, and ever is that, for Allah, easy."


"And whoever of you devoutly obeys Allah and His Messenger and does righteousness - We will give her her reward twice; and We have prepared for her a noble provision."

Quran 33:32

"O wives of the Prophet, you are not like anyone among women. If you fear Allah, then do not be soft in speech, lest he in whose heart is disease should covet, but speak with appropriate speech."

Quran 33:33

"And abide in your houses and do not display yourselves as the display of the former times of ignorance. And establish prayer and give zakah and obey Allah and His Messenger. Allah intends only to remove from you the impurity, O people of the household, and to purify you with purification."

This verse has especial importance for Shia Muslims due to giving information about Ahl al-Bayt of Muhammad. Shia believe it to designate the "People of the House" as being ismah "infallibility". sunnis, however, reject this. The verses refer to Muhammad wives.
