مَّا كَانَ عَلَى ٱلنَّبِيِّ مِنْ حَرَجٍ فِيمَا فَرَضَ ٱللَّهُ لَهُ سُنَّةَ ٱللَّهِ فِي ٱلَّذِينَ خَلَوْاْ مِن قَبْلُ وَكَانَ أَمْرُ ٱللَّهِ قَدَراً مَّقْدُوراً
-Al-Ahzâb ( الأحزاب )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

There is no restriction for the Prophet in what God has ordained, [in what] He has made lawful, for him: [that is] God’s precedent (sunnata’Llāhi is in the accusative because the operator of the oblique has been removed [from the oblique construction ka-sunnati’Llāhi, ‘as is God’s precedent’) with those who passed away before, of prophets, which is that there is no restriction for them in this respect, a [special] dispensation for them regarding marriage — and God’s commandment, what He does, is inexorable destiny
