Narated By Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-‘As : Marthad ibn AbuMarthad al-Ghanawi used to take prisoners (of war) from Mecca (to Medina). At Mecca there was a prostitute called Inaq who had illicit relations with him. (Marthad said:) I came to the Prophet (PBUH) and said to him: May I marry Inaq, Apostle of Allah? The narrator said: He kept silence towards me. Then the verse was revealed:”… and the adulteress none shall marry save and adulterer or an idolater.” He called me and recited this (verse) to me, and said: Do not marry her.
