065.001 O Prophet! When ye (men) put away women, put them away for their (legal)
period and reckon the period, and keep your duty to Allah, your Lord. Expel them not
from their houses nor let them go forth unless they commit open immorality. Such are
the limits (imposed by) Allah; and whoso transgresseth Allah's limits, he verily
wrongeth his soul. Thou knowest not: it may be that Allah will afterward bring some
new thing to pass.
065.002 Then, when they have reached their term, take them back in kindness or part
from them in kindness, and call to witness two just men among you, and keep your
testimony upright for Allah. Whoso believeth in Allah and the Last Day is exhorted to
act thus. And whosoever keepeth his duty to Allah, Allah will appoint a way out for
065.003 And will provide for him from (a quarter) whence he hath no expectation.
And whosoever putteth his trust in Allah, He will suffice him. Lo! Allah bringeth His
command to pass. Allah hath set a measure for all things.
065.004 And for such of your women as despair of menstruation, if ye 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 keepeth his duty to Allah, He maketh his course easy for him.
065.005 That is the commandment of Allah which He revealeth unto you. And whoso
keepeth his duty to Allah, He will remit from him his evil deeds and magnify reward
065.006 Lodge them where ye dwell, according to your wealth, and harass them not
so as to straiten life for them. And if they are with child, then spend for them till they
bring forth their burden. Then, if they give suck for you, give them their due payment
and consult together in kindness; but if ye make difficulties for one another, then let
some other woman give suck for him (the father of the child).
065.007 Let him who hath abundance spend of his abundance, and he whose
provision is measured, let him spend of that which Allah hath given him. Allah asketh
naught of any soul save that which He hath given it. Allah will vouchsafe, after
065.008 And how many a community revolted against the ordinance of its Lord and
His messengers, and We called it to a stern account and punished it with dire
065.009 So that it tasted the ill-effects of its conduct, and the consequence of its
conduct was loss.
065.010 Allah hath prepared for them stern punishment; so keep your duty to Allah,
O men of understanding! O ye who believe! Now Allah hath sent down unto you a
065.011 A messenger reciting unto you the revelations of Allah made plain, that He
may bring forth those who believe and do good works from darkness unto light. And
whosoever believeth in Allah and doeth right, He will bring him into Gardens
underneath which rivers flow, therein to abide for ever. Allah hath made good
provision for him.
065.012 Allah it is who hath created seven heavens, and of the earth the like thereof.
The commandment cometh down among them slowly, that ye may know that Allah is
Able to do all things, and that Allah surroundeth all things in knowledge.
