Revealed at Medina, Verses: 12 In the name of Allah, The Merciful, The All-merciful
  1. O Prophet, when you people divorce women, divorce them for their period and count the period; and fear God, your Lord; do not expel them from their homes, nor should they go forth, except when they commit flagrant indecency. And those are God's bounds; and he who transgresses God's bounds, has done wrong to himself; thou dost not know that God after that may bring something new to the matter.(1)
  2. Then, when they have reached their term, retain them desirably or part with them desirably, and call in to witness two just men out of you, and perform the witnessing to God; thus is admonished he who believes in God and the Last Day. And whoso fears God, He will make for him a way out,(2)
  3. and He will provide him whence he does not imagine; and whoso puts his trust in God, He shall suffice him; God does attain His purpose; God has indeed appointed a measure for everything.(3)
  4. And those of your women who have despaired of menstruation, and those who have not yet menstruated, their period, if you are in doubt, shall be three months; and for the pregnant women their term shall be that they lay down their burden; and whoso fears God, He will make his affair easy for him.(4)
  5. That is God's command that He has sent down to you; and whoso fears God, He will acquit him of His evils, and add to his wage.(5)
  6. Lodge them where you lodge yourself according to your means, and do not press them so as to straiten their life. And if they are pregnant, expend upon them till they lay down their burden; and if they suckle for you, give them their wages, and decide together desirably; and if you have mutual difficulties, then another woman may suckle for him.(6)
  7. Let the man of plenty expend of his plenty; and he whose provision is straitend to him, let him expend of what God has given him; God does not charge a soul, except for what He has given him; God will make things easy after hardship.(7)
  8. And how many a city turned in disdain from the commandment of its Lord and His Messengers, then We made a terrible reckoning with it, and We gave it a horrible punishment.(8)
  9. So it tasted the penalty of its affair, and the end of its affair was loss.(9)
  10. God prepared for them a terrible punishment, so fear God, O men of understanding __ those who have believed; God has sent down to you a Reminder;(10)
  11. a Messenger recites to you God's Clarifying Signs that He may bring forth those who believe and do righteous deeds from darkness to light; and whoso believes in God and does righteous deeds, He will admit him to gardens underneath which rivers flow, to dwell therein for ever and ever. God has indeed made for him a handsome provision.(11)
  12. God is He who created seven heavens, and of the earth their like; the command comes down between them that you may know that God is powerful over everything, and that God has encompassed everything in knowledge.(12)
