ٱلْخَبِيثَاتُ لِلْخَبِيثِينَ وَٱلْخَبِيثُونَ لِلْخَبِيثَاتِ وَٱلطَّيِّبَاتُ لِلطَّيِّبِينَ وَٱلطَّيِّبُونَ لِلْطَّيِّبَاتِ أُوْلَـٰئِكَ مُبَرَّءُونَ مِمَّا يَقُولُونَ لَهُم مَّغْفِرَةٌ وَرِزْقٌ كَرِيمٌ
-An-Nûr ( النور )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

Vile women, and [vile] words, are for vile men, and vile men for vile women, and the mentioned [vile words]. Good women, and as mentioned [good words], are for good men, and good men for good women, and the mentioned [good words], that is to say, what suits something vile is its like, and what suits something good is its like — such, good men and women, the like of ‘Ā’isha and Safwān, are absolved of what they say, [what] the corrupt men and women [say] about them. For them, for good men and women, will be forgiveness and a glorious provision, in Paradise. ‘Ā’isha felt honoured by some of the things [mentioned] in this [verse], namely, that she was created ‘a good woman’ and was promised ‘forgiveness and a glorious provision’.
