#65. Talaaq *SURAH*

In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful

1. O Prophet! when ye do divorce women divorce them at their
prescribed periods and count (accurately) their prescribed
periods: and fear Allah 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 Allah: and
any who transgresses the limits of Allah does verily wrong his
(own) soul: thou knowest not if perchance Allah will bring about
thereafter some new situation

2. 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 Allah. Such is the
admonition given to him who believes in Allah and the Last Day.
And for those who fear Allah He (ever) prepares a way out

3. And He provides for him from (sources) he never could imagine.
And if anyone puts his trust in Allah sufficient is (Allah) for
him. For Allah will surely accomplish His purpose: verily for all
things has Allah appointed a due proportion

4. Such of your women as have passed the age of monthly courses
for them the prescribed period if ye have any doubt 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 Allah He will
make their path easy

5. That is the Command of Allah which He has sent down to you:
and if anyone fears Allah He will remove his ills from him and
will enlarge His reward

6. Let the women live (in 'iddah) 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) behalf

7. Let the man of means spend according to his means: and the man
whose resources are restricted let him spend according to what
Allah has given him. Allah puts no burden on any person beyond
what He has given him. After a difficulty Allah will soon grant

8. 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

9. Then did they taste the evil result of their conduct and the
End of their conduct was Perdition

10. Allah has prepared for them a severe Punishment (in the
Hereafter). Therefore fear Allah O ye men of understanding who
have believed! for Allah hath indeed sent down to you a Message

11. An Apostle who rehearses to you the Signs of Allah 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 Allah and work righteousness He will admit
to Gardens beneath which rivers flow to dwell therein forever:
Allah has indeed granted for them a most excellent provision

12. Allah 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 Allah has power over all things
and that Allah comprehends all things in (His) Knowledge
