Commentary

 

It is commanded: Only adulteress woman will like to marry the man who has been habituated of fornication because she herself is habitual of the same. Any chaste and modest woman will never agree to marry any fornicator. And any undefiled man will never like to marry any unchaste woman. However if before marriage, adulterer and adulteress repent from adultery and determine that they will never commit this bad work in future, then in their marrying; it is of no consequence.

 

Believer man or woman should never keep violation of the marriage-bed with any other man or woman even after marriage. Purpose of the marriage is that one should be saved from adultery. Any bashful man will never like that his wife has any relationship with any third person, and nor any chaste woman will bear that her husband has unlawful relationship with any other woman.

 

In the Arab, some indigent men used to marry shameless women due to poorness, so that they may fulfill their requirements by their earnings of adultery. Islam prevented from this wantonness and immodesty and determined that this act is below the level of humanity.

 

Like this, any self-restraining woman will never like to marry any adulterer. However if both of them are shameless and have been involved in moral lowness, then it is another matter.
