Sura Talaaq (65) 06/11/2016


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Sura 65 (Talaaq)

The divorce process

65.1 – 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.

This sura begins by speaking about the divorce procedure in Islam. A single divorce is a process that takes at least three months to complete. There is no such thing as a triple talaaq in the Quran. Allah advises further that the divorcing couple should stay together under one roof until the iddat is over unless there is open lewdness. The wisdom of Allah here is to give the couple every opportunity for reconciliation.
