Sura At-Talaaq (Divorce)
Sheikh / AbdulBaset AbdulSamad

  • In the Name of God, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

    65:1 O Prophet! When you (men) put away women, put them away for their (legal) period and reckon the period, and keep your duty to God, your Lord. Expel them not from their houses nor let them go forth unless they commit open immorality. Such are the limits (imposed by) God; and whoever transgresses God's limits, he verily wrongs his soul. You know not: it may be that God will afterward bring some new thing to pass.

    65:2-3 Then, when they have reached their term, take them back in kindness or part from them in a reasonable manner, and call to witness two just men among you, and keep your testimony upright for God. Whoever believes in God and the Last Day is exhorted to act thus. And whosoever keeps his duty to God, God will appoint a way out for him, and will provide for him from (a quarter) wherefrom he has no expectation. And whosoever puts his trust in God, He will suffice him. Lo! God brings His command to pass. God has set a measure for all things.

    65:4 And for such of your women as despair of menstruation, if you doubt, their period (of waiting) shall be three months along with those who have it not. And for those with child, their period shall be till they bring forth their burden. And whosoever keeps his duty to God; He makes his course easy for him.

    65:5 That is the commandment of God, which He reveals to you. And whoever keeps his duty to God; He will expiate from him his evil deeds and magnify reward for him.

    65:6-7 Lodge them where you dwell, according to your wealth, and harass them not so as to straiten life for them. And if they are with child, then spend on them till they bring forth their burden. Then, if they give suckle for you, give them their due payment and consult together in a reasonable manner; but if you make difficulties for one another, then let some other woman suckle for him (the father of the child). Let him who has abundance spend of his abundance, and he whose provision is measured, let him spend of that which God has given him. God asks nothing of any soul except that which He has given it. God will give, after hardship, ease.

    65:8-9 And how many a community revolted against the ordinance of its Lord and His Messenger, and we called it to a stern account and punished it with a dire punishment, so that it tasted the ill effects of its conduct, and the consequence of its conduct was loss.

    65:10-11 God has prepared for them stern punishment, so keep your duty to God, O men of understanding! O you who believe! Now God has sent down to you a reminder, a Messenger reciting to you the revelations of God made plain, that He may bring forth those who believe and do good works from darkness to light. And whosoever believes in God and does right, He will bring him into Gardens underneath which rivers flow, therein to abide forever. God has made good provision for him.

    65:12 It is God Who has created seven heavens, and of the earth the like thereof. The commandment comes down among them slowly, that you may know that God is Able to do all things, and that God surrounds all things in knowledge.
