Yā 'Ayyuhā An-Nabīyu 'Idhā Ţallaqtumu An-Nisā' Faţalliqūhunna Li`iddatihinna Wa 'Aĥşū Al-`Iddata Wa Attaqū Al-Laha Rabbakum Lā Tukhrijūhunna Min Buyūtihinna Wa Lā Yakhrujna 'Illā 'An Ya'tīna Bifāĥishatin Mubayyinatin Wa Tilka Ĥudūdu Al-Lahi Wa Man Yata`adda Ĥudūda Al-Lahi Faqad Žalama Nafsahu Lā Tadrī La`alla Al-Laha Yuĥdithu Ba`da Dhālika 'Aman O Prophet! If you and the believers divorce your wives, divorce them at the end of their prescribed periods, and count their prescribed periods accurately. Fear Allah, your Rabb. Do not expel them from their homes during their waiting period, nor they themselves should leave, unless they have committed an open lewdness. These are limits set by Allah; he that transgresses the limits of Allah will wrong his own soul. You never know, Allah may, thereafter, bring about some new situation of reconciliation.[65.1]

Call to witness two honest persons among you, and O witnesses, bear witness equitably for the sake of Allah. This advice is being given to all who believe in Allah and the last Day. He that fears Allah may be provided a way out by Him,[65.2]

Surely Allah brings about what He pleases, and Allah has set a measure for all things.[65.3] ~

As for those who are pregnant, their waiting period will end with delivery. Allah will ease the hardship of those who fear Him.[65.4]

You shall not harass them so as to make life intolerable for them. If they are pregnant, maintain them until their delivery: and if, after that, they suckle your offspring, compensate them and settle the matter of compensation with mutual consultation and in all fairness. But if you cannot bear with each other then let another woman suckle the baby for you.[65.6] ~

Allah does not charge a man with more than He has given him; soon Allah may bring ease after hardship.[65.7]
