Return & Position Of Husband And Wife

LESSON # 270 FROM HOLY QUR’AN Return & Position Of Husband And Wife BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow) Verse – 228b    of  286, Section – 29 (Part - 2)
And their husbands would do better to take them back in that case if they desire a reconciliation. And they (women) have rights similar to those (of men) over them in kindness, and men are a degree above them. And Allah is Mighty, Wise.   Wa  bu- uulatuhunna  ‘ahaqqu  bi-raddihinna  fii  zaalika  ‘in  ‘araaduuu  ‘islaahaa.  Wa la-hunna  mislullazii  ‘alayhinna  bil-ma’-ruuf,  wa  lir-rijaali  ‘alayhinna  darajah.  Wallaahu  ‘Aziizun  Hakiim.

Zaalika– (in that case, in it), that is to say in the term/period of three months.
‘Ahaqqu  bi-raddihinna – (they have more rights to take them back). This proves from it that the husband should not take quite last decision till the time he can delay and it is better if they both (husband and wife) establish themselves again from the beginning, and the time of their separation doesn't c…

LESSON # 269 FROM HOLY QUR’AN Term (‘Iddat) BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow) Verse – 228a    of  286, Section – 28 (Part - 2)
Women who are divorced shall wait, keeping themselves apart, three (monthly) courses. And it is not lawful for them that they should conceal that which Allah hath created in their wombs if they are believers in Allah and the Last Day. Wal-mutallaqaatu  yatarab-basna  bi-‘anfusi-hinna  salaasata  quruuu’.  Wa  laa ya—hillu  lahunna  ‘any-yaktumna  maa khalaqallaahu  fiii  ‘ar-haa-mihinna  ‘in-kunna  yu’-minna  billaahi  wal-Yawmil-‘Aakhir.

‘Al-mutallaqaatu – (the divorced women), each that woman who has been divorced, is called mutallaqah. According to the religious laws it aims only those wives, who are free, adult and act of intercourse has been performed with them, not those women who are lawful bondwomen, minor and who have not been touched with any adult male.
Yatarab-basna  bi-‘anfusi-hinna – (they shall wait, keeping themselves apart), for instance it…

Beginning Of Divorce

LESSON # 268 FROM HOLY QUR’AN Beginning Of Divorce BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow) Verse – 226 & 227    of  286, Section – 28 (Part - 2)
226. Those who forswear their wives must wait four months; then, if they change their mind, lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
227. And if they decide upon divorce (let them remember that) Allah is Hearer, Knower.         226.  Lillaziina  yu’-luuna  min-nisaaa-‘ihim  tarabbusu  ‘arba-‘ati  ‘ash-hur.  Fa-‘in-faaa-‘uu  fa-‘innallaaha Gafuurur-Rahiim.
227.  Wa  ‘in  azamut-talaaqa  fa-‘innallaaha Samii-‘un  ‘Aliim.

Yu’-luuna – (who forswear), this word is derived from ‘iilaa which means forswear. Idiomatically its object is to swear living separate from the wife. It was common custom in the Arabians that whenever they became rage, they forswore remaining separate from their wives.  
Talaaq – (divorce), according to law disconnecting the mutual relations entirely between husband and wife is called ‘divorce’, repudiation. Different methods about divor…

False Oaths

LESSON # 267 FROM HOLY QUR’AN False Oaths BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow) Verse – 225    of  286, Section – 28 (Part - 2)
Allah will not take you to task for that which is unintentional in your oaths. But He will take you to task for that which your hearts have garnered. And Allah is Forgiving, Clement.    Laa  yu-‘aakhizu-kumul-laahu  bil-lagwi  fiii  ‘ay-maani-kum  wa  laakiny-yu-‘aakhizu-kum- bimaa  kasabat  quluubu-kum.  Wallaahu  Gafuurun  Haliim. 

Bil-lagwi  fiii  ‘ay-maani-kum – (your unintentional oaths), false oaths means the oaths which are spoken either unintentional due to ignorance or those slip from the tongue only due to malice, and adulteration of a lie enters into them without intention. Learned men have told that there are many kinds of false oaths. Their relation may be also with past events as well as with the habit that the person uses to swear without reason, swear in each affair. The scholars have strongly disapproved this act.
Gafuurun – (Forgiving), Allah A…

LESSON # 266 FROM HOLY QUR’AN Use Of Wrong Oaths BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow) Verse – 224    of  286, Section – 28 (Part - 2)
And make not Allah, by your oaths, a hindrance to your being righteous and observing your duty unto Him and making peace among mankind. And Allah is Hearer, Knower. Wa  laa  taj-‘alullaaha  ‘urzatal-li-‘ay-maanikum  ‘an-tabarruu  wa  tattaquu  wa  tus-lihuu  bay-nan-naas.  Wallaahu  Samii-‘un  ‘Aliim. 

‘Urzatan – (aim), this word is also used for hindrance and shield/target. Here it means hindrance only.
Samii-‘un – (Hearer), God Almighty Hears all the talks of human being as well as each creature. So the mankind should think before speak every matter.
‘Aliimun – (Knower), Allah Almighty Knows better the states and conditions of the human. So he should keep purity and sincerity in his intention each time.
Tabarruu– (treat with kind), this word has been derived from the word Barr, which means goodness.
Whenever the persons used to displease upon any othe…

Care For The Next Life (Doomsday)

LESSON # 265 FROM HOLY QUR’AN Care For The Next Life (Doomsday) BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow) Verse – 223b    of  286, Section – 28 (Part - 2)
And send (good deeds) before you for your souls, and fear Allah. And know that ye will (one day) meet Him. And give glad tidings to believers, (O  Muhammad).             Wa  qaddimuu  li-‘anfusikum.  Wattaqul-laaha  wa’-lamuuu  ‘annakum-mulaa-quuh.  Wa  bashshiril-Mu’-miniin.  

It has been clarified earlier that our life doesn't finish after death, but enters in to a new era, and its comfort or vexation depends there upon those deeds which we do in this world. Good or bad reflection of this life’s deeds and acts lies down in the shape of that life’s success or failure. This world is the place of test and examination. We have to make provision for future enduring hardness and troubles here. That Day of Resurrection is the place to get reward or punishment for the deeds done by us during this life.
The relations between male and female had…

Status Of The Wife

LESSON # 264 FROM HOLY QUR’AN Status Of The Wife BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow) Verse – 223a    of  286, Section – 28 (Part - 2)
Your women are a tilth for you (to cultivate) so go to your tilth as ye will,              Nisaaa-‘ukum  harsul-lakum;  fa’-tuu  harsakum  ‘an-naa  shi’-tum;

Hars – (agricultural land, farm), that piece of land is called hars where seed is sown and vegetable, grain and vegetation are gotten as though the wife is the source of producing children and increasing your breed/race.
Allah Almighty has cleared in this verse about true position of the wife in connection with wedding relationship. That is to say, the wife is like a farm for her husband, and as the farmer he keeps his farm very precious supposing it as his very big wealth, watches and guards it, earns grain from it, likewise the husband should also consider his wife as his very great fortune. He should watch and guard her, and get children from her.  
As though it is proved that near Islam the real purpose …

After The Days Of Menstruation

LESSON # 263 FROM HOLY QUR’AN After The Days Of Menstruation BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow) Verse – 222b    of  286, Section – 28 (Part - 2)
And go not in unto them till they are cleansed. And when they have purified themselves, then go in unto them as Allah hath enjoined upon you. Truly Allah loveth those who turn unto Him, and loveth those who have a care for cleanness.               Wa  laa taqrabuu-hunna  hatta  yat-hurn.  Fa-‘izaa  ta-tahharna  fa’-tuu-hunna  min  hay-su  ‘amara-kumul-laah.  ‘Innal-laaha  yuhibbut-Tawwaa-biina  wa  yuhibbul-Muta-tahhiriin.

‘At-Tawwaa-biina – (who turn unto Him), it aims all those people who whenever are wrong by chance, afterward they renounce solemnly and become much ashamed.
‘Al-Muta-tahhiriin – (who have a care for cleanness), it signifies particularly towards those persons who remain away from their wives (ignore the act of intercourse) during their days of menstruation (until they are cleansed).
In the former lesson the Holy Qur’an h…

Fact About Menstruation

LESSON # 262 FROM HOLY QUR’AN Fact About Menstruation BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow) Verse – 222a    of  286, Section – 28 (Part - 2)
They question thee (O Muhammad)   concerning menstruation. Say: It is an illness, so let women alone  at such times             Wa  yas-‘aluunaka  ‘anil-  mahiiz.  Qul  huwa  ‘azaa,  fa’-tazilun-nisaaa-‘a  fil-mahiiz.

Mahiiz – (menstruation), mahiiz is that blood which comes to the women each month. It is also called monthly course and menses. It is an illness. Other nations of the world have determined it too as foul blood as well as medical specialists claim that it is detective blood. According to color, smell and particles this blood is also different from the normal blood. It has extremely fury.
fa’-tazilu- (so let women alone) this word has been derived from ‘A’-tazaal which means here “remain away from that woman for the process of intercourse with her”.
Reason for revelation of this verse is that during the times of Last Messenger of God Almi…

Marriage With Idolaters

LESSON # 261 FROM HOLY QUR’AN Marriage With Idolaters BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow) Verse – 221c    of  286, Section – 27 (Part - 2)
And give not your daughters in marriage to idolaters till they believe. And lo! A believing slave is better than an idolater though he please you. These invite unto the Fire, and Allah inviteth unto the Garden, and unto forgiveness by His Grace, and expoundeth thus His Revelations to mankind that haply they may remember.               Wa  laa  tunkihul-mushrikiina  hattaa  yu’-minuu.  Wa  la-‘abdum-mu’-minun- khayrum-mim-mushrikinw-wa  law  ‘a’-jabakum.  Ulaaa-‘ika yad-‘uuna  ‘ilan-Naar.  Wallaahu  yad-‘uuu  ‘ilal-Jannati  wal-mag-firati  bi-‘iznih.  Wa  yu-bayyinu  ‘aayaatihii  lin-naasi  la-‘allahum  yatazakkaruun.

laa  tunkihu – don’t marry (your daughters with idolaters), here Muslim men are being addressed that “don’t give your daughters in marriage to idolaters”. This order is not being delivered direct to the women that ‘do not …

Status Of A Muslim Bondwoman

LESSON # 260 FROM HOLY QUR’AN Status Of A Muslim Bondwoman BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow) Verse – 221b    of  286, Section – 27 (Part - 2)
And lo! A believing bondwoman is better than an idolatress though she please you;           Wa  la-‘amatum-mu’-minatun  khayrum-mim-mushrikatinw-wa  law  ‘a’-jabat-kum.

In the first part of this verse it has been told that marriage with any idolatress woman is unlawful. Now Allah Almighty commands that if any idolatress woman has all the beauties and qualities, apparently she has each type of attraction, but while she has not the light of belief then she would not have any allurement for the Muslim. Comparatively if any Muslim woman doesn't have blessings like freedom, she is better to be wed a Muslim man.
There may be some reasons to like any idolatress or non-Muslim woman, for instance she may be rich, she may have a lot of wealth and property, she may be beautiful and elegant, she may be well educated, she may belong to a higher family/dynasty, …

To Wed The Idolatresses

LESSON # 259 FROM HOLY QUR’AN To Wed The Idolatresses BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow) Verse – 221a    of  286, Section – 27 (Part - 2)
Wed not idolatresses till they believe.           Wa  laa  tankihul-mushri-kaati  hattaa  yu’-minn.

‘Al-mushri-kaati – (the idolatresses) this word has been derived from shirk which means ascribing plurality to Allah Almighty, that is to say the woman who includes any other person or thing in the virtues of G0d Almighty. This word has been used in its vast and common meanings. Every infidel woman is included in this order. It is not necessary that she should be only idolatress. To wed any non-Muslim woman is unlawful according to the theologies of spiritual guides (Imam) Maalik and Shaaf-‘aii, but it is unlawful to wed each non-Muslim woman near to the scholars of Hanfii theology in accord with common rule, but it is lawful to marry any woman from Jews or Christians (because they belong to the heavenly religions). Its permission exists formally in the Divi…
