Surah 65 - Divorce
In the Name
of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
Prophet! when you divorce women, divorce them for their prescribed time, and calculate the
number of the days prescribed, and be careful of (your duty to) Allah, your Lord. Do not
drive them out of their houses, nor should they themselves go forth, unless they commit an
open indecency; and these are the limits of Allah, and whoever goes beyond the limits of
Allah, he indeed does injustice to his own soul. You do not know that Allah may after that
bring about reunion.
when they have reached their prescribed time, then retain them with kindness or separate
them with kindness, and call to witness two men of justice from among you, and give
upright testimony for Allah. With that is admonished he who believes in Allah and the
latter day; and whoever is careful of (his duty to) Allah, He will make for him an outlet,
give him sustenance from whence he thinks not; and whoever trusts in Allah, He is
sufficient for him; surely Allah attains His purpose; Allah indeed has appointed a measure
(as for) those of your women who have despaired of menstruation, if you have a doubt,
their prescribed time shall be three months, and of those too who have not had their
courses; and (as for) the pregnant women, their prescribed time is that they lay down
their burden; and whoever is careful of (his duty to) Allah He will make easy for him his
is the command of Allah which He has revealed to you, and whoever is careful of (his duty
to) Allah, He will remove from him his evil and give him a big reward.
them where you lodge according to your means, and do not injure them in order that you may
straiten them; and if they are pregnant, spend on them until they lay down their burden;
then if they suckle for you, give them their recompense and enjoin one another among you
to do good; and if you disagree, another (woman) shall suckle for him.
him who has abundance spend out of his abundance and whoever has his means of subsistence
straitened to him, let him spend out of that which Allah has given him; Allah does not lay
on any soul a burden except to the extent to which He has granted it; Allah brings about
ease after difficulty.
how many a town which rebelled against the commandment of its Lord and His apostles, so We
called it to account severely and We chastised it (with) a stern chastisement.
[65.9] So it
tasted the evil result of its conduct, and the end of its affair was perdition.
Allah has prepared for them severe chastisement, therefore be careful of (your duty to)
Allah, O men of understanding who believe! Allah has indeed revealed to you a reminder,
Apostle who recites to you the clear communications of Allah so that he may bring forth
those who believe and do good deeds from darkness into light; and whoever believes in
Allah and does good deeds, He will cause him to enter gardens beneath which rivers now, to
abide therein forever, Allah has indeed given him a goodly sustenance.
Allah is He Who created seven heavens, and of the earth the like of them; the decree
continues to descend among them, that you may know that Allah has power over all things
and that Allah indeed encompasses all things in (His) knowledge.
