Sura 33
Aya 28
يا أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ قُل لِأَزواجِكَ إِن كُنتُنَّ تُرِدنَ الحَياةَ الدُّنيا وَزينَتَها فَتَعالَينَ أُمَتِّعكُنَّ وَأُسَرِّحكُنَّ سَراحًا جَميلًا

Ali Unal

O (most illustrious) Prophet! Say to your wives: “If you desire the present, worldly life and its charms, then come and let me make the necessary provision for you (in return for divorce),1 and release you with a handsome release.
  • When a husband divorces his wife, just as he cannot take back anything of the bridal-due he gave her during marriage (4: 20), he is also obliged to make provision for her according to his standards of living during her waiting period – three full menstrual cycles – appointed by God (2: 228, 241).
