Surah 65 Divorce - At-Talaq, 12 verses (Madina)
In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
- 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 not if perchance God
will bring about thereafter some new situation.
- 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. And for
those who fear God, He (ever) prepares a way out,
- And He provides for him from (sources) he never
could imagine. And if any 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.
- 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 path easy.
- 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.
- Let the women live (in 'iddat) in the same style as
ye live, according to your means: Annoy them not, so as
to restrict them. And if they carry (life in their
wombs), 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)
- 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.
- How many populations that insolently opposed the
Command of their Lord and of His apostles, did We not
then call to account,- to severe account?- and We
imposed on them an exemplary Punishment.
- Then did they taste the evil result of their
conduct, and the End of their conduct was Perdition.
- 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,-
- An Apostle, 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 therein for ever:
God has indeed granted for them a most excellent
- 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.
