Sura 33
Aya 49
يا أَيُّهَا الَّذينَ آمَنوا إِذا نَكَحتُمُ المُؤمِناتِ ثُمَّ طَلَّقتُموهُنَّ مِن قَبلِ أَن تَمَسّوهُنَّ فَما لَكُم عَلَيهِنَّ مِن عِدَّةٍ تَعتَدّونَها ۖ فَمَتِّعوهُنَّ وَسَرِّحوهُنَّ سَراحًا جَميلًا

Ali Unal

O you who believe! When you have made a marriage contract with any of the believing women (including those belonging to the People of the Book), and then divorce them before you have touched them, you have no reason to ask them to observe any waiting-period for you. Make some provision for them and release them in fair manner.1
  • If the divorce mentioned in the verse takes place before any marriage-portion or bridal due has been determined, the husband must make provision according to his means. If it takes place after a bridal-due has already been appointed, half of what has been appointed should be given to the divorced woman. However, the woman can make remission and forgo it, or the man can make remission and pay the full amount. (See 2: 236–237.)
