Interesting observation…

It’s interesting Allah uses the same words for describing the covenant taken from the Prophet’s and with regards to marriage. I am sure there must be a deep nuance in the tafseer of this. InshAllah perhabs Allah will disclose this to me one day.



But if you want to replace one wife with another and you have given one of them a great amount [in gifts], do not take [back] from it anything. Would you take it in injustice and manifest sin?

And how could you take it while you have gone in unto each other and they have taken from you a solemn covenant?

And [mention, O Muhammad], when We took from the prophets their covenant and from you and from Noah and Abraham and Moses and Jesus, the son of Mary; and We took from them a solemn covenant.
