I suggest,

{24:32} And let marry the unmarried among you and the righteous among your male slaves and female slaves. If they are poor, God will enrich them from His bounty, and God is Capacious, Omniscient.

{24:33} But let them abstain who do not find [the means for] marriage until God enriches them from His bounty. And those who seek the book [of emancipation] from among whom your right hands possess - then make book with them if you know there is in them goodness and give them from the wealth of God which He has given you. And do not coerce your girls to prostitution, if they desire chastity, to seek [thereby] the temporary interests of [this] the nearest life. And whoever coerces them, then verily, God is [to them], after their coercion, Oft-Forgiving and Merciful.
