          In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful.

065.001

PICKTHAL: 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

PICKTHAL: 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 him,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

065.003

PICKTHAL: 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

PICKTHAL: 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

PICKTHAL: 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 for him.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

065.006

PICKTHAL: 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

PICKTHAL: 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 hardship, ease.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

065.008

PICKTHAL: 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 punishment,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

065.009

PICKTHAL: So that it tasted the ill-effects of its conduct, and the
consequence of its conduct was loss.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

065.010

PICKTHAL: 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 reminder,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

065.011

PICKTHAL: 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

PICKTHAL: 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.
