Detailed verse by verse explanation of Quran in Urdu by Late Dr. Israr Ahmad.

وَأَنْكِحُوا الْأَيَامَىٰ مِنْكُمْ وَالصَّالِحِينَ مِنْ عِبَادِكُمْ وَإِمَائِكُمْ ۚ إِنْ يَكُونُوا فُقَرَاءَ يُغْنِهِمُ اللَّهُ مِنْ فَضْلِهِ ۗ وَاللَّهُ وَاسِعٌ عَلِيمٌ ﴿٣٢﴾
٣٢ - اور اپنی قوم کی بیوہ عورتوں کے نکاح کردیا کرو۔ اور اپنے غلاموں اور لونڈیوں کے بھی جو نیک ہوں (نکاح کردیا کرو) اگر وہ مفلس ہوں گے تو خدا ان کو اپنے فضل سے خوش حال کردے گا۔ اور خدا (بہت) وسعت والا اور (سب کچھ) جاننے والا ہے .
[24:32] And marry the unmarried among you and the righteous among your male slaves and female slaves. If they should be poor, Allah will enrich them from His bounty, and Allah is all-Encompassing and Knowing.
[Transliteration] Wa ankihul ayaamaa minkum was saaliheena min 'ibaadikum wa imaa'kum, iny-yakoonoo fuqaraaa'a yughni himul laahu min fadlih, wal laahu Waasi'un 'Aleem
