Yusuf Ali The Prophet is closer to the Believers than their own selves, and his wives are their mothers. Blood-relations among each other have closer personal ties, in the Decree of Allah. Than (the Brotherhood of) Believers and Muhajirs: nevertheless do ye what is just to your closest friends: such is the writing in the Decree (of Allah).
Sahih International The Prophet is more worthy of the believers than themselves, and his wives are [in the position of] their mothers. And those of [blood] relationship are more entitled [to inheritance] in the decree of Allah than the [other] believers and the emigrants, except that you may do to your close associates a kindness [through bequest]. That was in the Book inscribed.
Shakir The Prophet has a greater claim on the faithful than they have on themselves, and his wives are (as) their mothers; and the possessors of relationship have the better claim in the ordinance of Allah to inheritance, one with respect to another, than (other) believers, and (than) those who have fled (their homes), except that you do some good to your friends; this is written in the Book.
Pickthall The Prophet is closer to the believers than their selves, and his wives are (as) their mothers. And the owners of kinship are closer one to another in the ordinance of Allah than (other) believers and the fugitives (who fled from Mecca), except that ye should do kindness to your friends. This is written in the Book (of nature).
محمد جالندھری پیغمبر مومنوں پر اُن کی جانوں سے بھی زیادہ حق رکھتے ہیں اور پیغمبر کی بیویاں اُن کی مائیں ہیں۔ اور رشتہ دار آپس میں کتاب الله کے رُو سے مسلمانوں اور مہاجروں سے ایک دوسرے (کے ترکے) کے زیادہ حقدار ہیں۔ مگر یہ کہ تم اپنے دوستوں سے احسان کرنا چاہو۔ (تو اور بات ہے)۔ یہ حکم کتاب یعنی (قرآن) میں لکھ دیا گیا ہے
