Surah 65 - Al Talaq DIVORCE
065.001 O Prophet! When ye do divorce women, divorce them at their prescribed
periods, and count (accurately), their prescribed periods: And fear God your Lord:
and turn them not out of their houses, nor shall they (themselves) leave, except in case
they are guilty of some open lewdness, those are limits set by God: and any who
transgresses the limits of God, does verily wrong his (own) soul: thou knowest
perchance God will bring about thereafter some new situation.
065.002 Thus when they fulfil their term appointed, either take them back on
equitable terms or part with them on equitable terms; and take for witness two
persons from among you, endued with justice, and establish the evidence (as) before
God. Such is the admonition given to him who believes in God and the Last Day.
for those who fear God, He (ever) prepares a way out,
065.003 And He provides for him from (sources) he never could imagine. And if
one puts his trust in God, sufficient is (God) for him. For God will surely accomplish
his purpose: verily, for all things has God appointed a due proportion.
065.004 Such of your women as have passed the age of monthly courses, for them
the prescribed period, if ye have any doubts, is three months, and for those who have
no courses (it is the same): for those who carry (life within their wombs), their period
is until they deliver their burdens: and for those who fear God, He will make their
065.005 That is the Command of God, which He has sent down to you: and if any
one fears God, He will remove his ills, from him, and will enlarge his reward.
065.006 Let the women live (in 'iddat) in the same style as ye live, according
means: Annoy them not, so as to restrict them. And if they carry (life in their
then spend (your substance) on them until they deliver their burden: and if they suckle
your (offspring), give them their recompense: and take mutual counsel together,
according to what is just and reasonable. And if ye find yourselves in difficulties, let
another woman suckle (the child) on the (father's) behalf.
065.007 Let the man of means spend according to his means: and the man whose
resources are restricted, let him spend according to what God has given him. God puts
no burden on any person beyond what He has given him. After a difficulty, God will
soon grant relief.
065.008 How many populations that insolently opposed the Command of their Lord
and of His messengers, did We not then call to account,- to severe account?- and
imposed on them an exemplary Punishment.
065.009 Then did they taste the evil result of their conduct, and the End of their
conduct was Perdition.
065.010 God has prepared for them a severe Punishment (in the Hereafter).
Therefore fear God, O ye men of understanding - who have believed!- for God hath
indeed sent down to you a Message,-
065.011 An Messenger, who rehearses to you the Signs of God containing clear
explanations, that he may lead forth those who believe and do righteous deeds from
the depths of Darkness into Light. And those who believe in God and work
righteousness, He will admit to Gardens beneath which Rivers flow, to dwell the
forever: God has indeed granted for them a most excellent Provision.
065.012 God is He Who created seven Firmaments and of the earth a similar number.
Through the midst of them (all) descends His Command: that ye may know that God
has power over all things, and that God comprehends, all things in (His) Knowledge.
