Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(O ye wives of the Prophet! Ye are not like any other women) you are not like the rest of women in relation to transgression, obedience, reward and punishment. (If ye keep your duty (to Allah)) if you obey Allah and His Messenger, (then be not soft of speech) with strangers, (lest he in whose heart is a disease) lust for adultery (aspire (to you), but utter customary speech) straight speech, containing no ambiguity.
