Surat At-Talaq (Arabic: سورة الطلاق‎) (Divorce) is the 65th sura of the Qur'an with 12 ayat.


1 "O Prophet, When you divorce women, divorce them at their prescribed time, and count their prescribed time. And fear God your Lord, turn them not out of their homes, nor shall they (themselves) leave, except in case they are guilty of some open indecency. And those are the set limits of God. And whosoever transgresses the set limits of God, then indeed he has wronged himself. You know not, it may be that God will afterward bring some new thing to pass."

2 "Then when they reached their prescribed time either take them back in a good manner or part with them in a good manner. And take as witness two just persons from among you. And establish the testimony for God. That will be an advice given to him who believes in God and the Last Day. And whosoever fears God and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from difficulty)."

3 "And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine. And whosoever puts his trust in God, then He will suffice him. Verily, God will accomplish his purpose. Indeed God has set a measure for all things."

4 "And those of your women as have passed the age of monthly courses, for them the prescribed time, if you have doubt, is three months, and for those who have no courses likewise. And for those who are pregnant their prescribed time is until they lay down their burden, and whosoever fears God and keeps his duty to Him, He will make his matter easy for him."

5 "That is the Command of God, which He has sent down to you, and whosoever fears God and keeps his duty to Him, He will remit his sins, and will reward him generously."

6 "Lodge them (the divorced women) where you dwell, according to your means, and do not harm them so as to straiten them (that they be obliged to leave your house). And if they are pregnant, then spend on them till they laydown their burden. Then if they give suck to the children for you, give them their due payment, and let each of you accept the advice of the other in a just way. But if you make difficulties for one another, then some other woman may give suck for him (the father of the child)."

7 "Let the rich man spend according to his means, and the man whose resources are restricted, let him spend according to what God has given him. God puts no burden on any person beyond what He has given him. God will grant after hardship, ease."

8 "And many a town (population) revolted against the Command of its Lord and His Messengers, and We called it to a severe account (i.e. torment in this worldly life), and we shall punish it with a horrible torment (in Hell, in the Hereafter)."

9 "So it tasted the evil result of its affair (disbelief), and the consequence of its affair (disbelief) was loss (destruction in this life and an eternal punishment in the Hereafter)."

10 "God has prepared for them a severe torment. So fear God and keep your duty to Him, O men of understanding — who have believed! - God has indeed sent down to you a Reminder (this Qur'ân)."

11 "(And has also sent to you) a Messenger (Muhammad SAW), who recites to you the Verses of God (the Qur'ân) containing clear explanations, that He may take out, those who believe and do righteous good deeds from the darkness (of polytheism and disbelief) to the light (of Islamic Monotheism). And whosoever believes in God and performs righteous good deeds, He will admit him into Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise), to dwell therein forever. God has indeed granted for him an excellent provision."

12 "It is God Who has created seven heavens and of the earth the like thereof (i.e. seven). His Command descends between them (heavens and earth), that you may know that God has power over all things, and that God surrounds all things in (His) Knowledge."
