"They ask thy instruction concerning women.
Say: Allah doth
instruct unto you in the Book, concerning the orphans of women to whom ye give not the portions prescribed, and yet whom ye
desire to marry, as also concerning the children who are weak and oppressed;
That ye stand firm for justice to orphans.
is not a good deed which ye do, but Allah is well acquainted therwith."
"If a wife fears cruelty or desertion on her husband's part,
There is no blame on them if they arrange an amicable settlement between themselves'
And such settlement is best; even
though men's souls are swayed by greed.
But if ye do good and practice self-restraint, Allah is well acquainted with all
that ye do."
"Ye are never able to be fair and just as between women, even
if it is your ardent desire:
But turn not away (from a woman) altogether, So as to leave her (as it were) hanging (in the
air). If ye come to friendly understanding, and practice self-restraint, Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful."
"But if they disagree (and must part), Allah will provide abundance
for all from His All-Reaching bounty:
For Allah is He that careth for all and is Wise."
