Verse 65:1

يٰۤاَيُّهَا النَّبِىُّ اِذَا طَلَّقۡتُمُ النِّسَآءَ فَطَلِّقُوۡهُنَّ لِعِدَّتِهِنَّ وَاَحۡصُوا الۡعِدَّةَ ​ ۚ وَاتَّقُوا اللّٰهَ رَبَّكُمۡ​ ۚ لَا تُخۡرِجُوۡهُنَّ مِنۡۢ بُيُوۡتِهِنَّ وَلَا يَخۡرُجۡنَ اِلَّاۤ اَنۡ يَّاۡتِيۡنَ بِفَاحِشَةٍ مُّبَيِّنَةٍ​ ؕ وَتِلۡكَ حُدُوۡدُ اللّٰهِ​ ؕ وَمَنۡ يَّتَعَدَّ حُدُوۡدَ اللّٰهِ فَقَدۡ ظَلَمَ نَفۡسَهٗ​ ؕ لَا تَدۡرِىۡ لَعَلَّ اللّٰهَ يُحۡدِثُ بَعۡدَ ذٰ لِكَ اَمۡرًا‏

O Prophet! When you men intend to divorce women, make sure that the waiting period is observed. Keep precise account of this interim. Be mindful of God, your Lord. Never expel them from THEIR homes, nor shall they themselves leave their homes unless they commit open immorality. These are, then, the limits imposed by God. And whoever crosses God""s limits, hurts one""s own ""self"". You do not know that God may bring about thereafter a new situation (help create reconciliation). [Note that homes belong to women. The waiting period before a divorced woman or a widow can remarry, has been explained before and reiterated now. (65:4, 2:228, 2:234). There is no waiting period for women with whom husbands have had no intimate relations. 33:49]

Verse 65:2

فَاِذَا بَلَغۡنَ اَجَلَهُنَّ فَاَمۡسِكُوۡهُنَّ بِمَعۡرُوۡفٍ اَوۡ فَارِقُوۡهُنَّ بِمَعۡرُوۡفٍ وَّاَشۡهِدُوۡا ذَوَىۡ عَدۡلٍ مِّنۡكُمۡ وَاَقِيۡمُوا الشَّهَادَةَ لِلّٰهِ​ ؕ ذٰ لِكُمۡ يُوۡعَظُ بِهٖ مَنۡ كَانَ يُؤۡمِنُ بِاللّٰهِ وَالۡيَوۡمِ الۡاٰخِرِ​ ۙ وَمَنۡ يَّـتَّـقِ اللّٰهَ يَجۡعَلْ لَّهٗ مَخۡرَجًا ۙ‏

And so when they have reached their waiting term, either retain them in kindness or part with them in kindness. And let there be two just persons among you to witness, and establish the evidence straight for God. This exhortation is for him who believes in God and the Last Day. Whoever remains conscious of God, He will open a way out for him from difficult situations. [""Makhraj"" = A way out from difficult situations]

Verse 65:3

وَّيَرۡزُقۡهُ مِنۡ حَيۡثُ لَا يَحۡتَسِبُ​ ؕ وَمَنۡ يَّتَوَكَّلۡ عَلَى اللّٰهِ فَهُوَ حَسۡبُهٗ ؕ اِنَّ اللّٰهَ بَالِغُ اَمۡرِهٖ​ ؕ قَدۡ جَعَلَ اللّٰهُ لِكُلِّ شَىۡءٍ قَدۡرًا‏

And He will provide for him from where he never expected. And whoever places his trust in God, He will suffice him. God always brings His command to pass. God""s Law of Cause and Effect applies to all things and events. [""Qadra"" = Law of Cause and Effect]

Verse 65:4

وَالّٰٓـىٴِۡ يَٮِٕسۡنَ مِنَ الۡمَحِيۡضِ مِنۡ نِّسَآٮِٕكُمۡ اِنِ ارۡتَبۡتُمۡ فَعِدَّتُهُنَّ ثَلٰثَةُ اَشۡهُرٍ وَّالّٰٓـىٴِۡ لَمۡ يَحِضۡنَ​ ؕ وَاُولَاتُ الۡاَحۡمَالِ اَجَلُهُنَّ اَنۡ يَّضَعۡنَ حَمۡلَهُنَّ ​ؕ وَمَنۡ يَّـتَّـقِ اللّٰهَ يَجۡعَلْ لَّهٗ مِنۡ اَمۡرِهٖ یُسْرًا‏

And those of your women who no longer expect menstruation or do not habitually menstruate, to resolve your doubts, their waiting period is ordained to be three months. For those who are pregnant, the waiting period ends when they deliver their burden. Anyone who remains conscious of Divine laws, He will make his matters easy for him. [Note the word Hamlahunna = Their burden = What they carry, - instead of ""their baby or child"". So, the term includes abortion, conditions such as moles, and all kinds of abnormal pregnancies and outcomes]

Verse 65:5

ذٰ لِكَ اَمۡرُ اللّٰهِ اَنۡزَلَهٗۤ اِلَيۡكُمۡ​ ؕ وَمَنۡ يَّـتَّـقِ اللّٰهَ يُكَفِّرۡ عَنۡهُ سَيِّاٰتِهٖ وَيُعۡظِمۡ لَهٗۤ اَجۡرًا‏

That is the commandment of God that He reveals to you. Anyone who remains conscious of Divine laws, He will absolve his faults and greatly increase his reward.

Verse 65:6

اَسۡكِنُوۡهُنَّ مِنۡ حَيۡثُ سَكَنۡـتُمۡ مِّنۡ وُّجۡدِكُمۡ وَلَا تُضَآرُّوۡهُنَّ لِتُضَيِّقُوۡا عَلَيۡهِنَّ​ ؕ وَاِنۡ كُنَّ اُولَاتِ حَمۡلٍ فَاَنۡفِقُوا عَلَيۡهِنَّ حَتّٰى يَضَعۡنَ حَمۡلَهُنَّ​​ ۚ فَاِنۡ اَرۡضَعۡنَ لَـكُمۡ فَاٰ تُوۡهُنَّ اُجُوۡرَهُنَّ​ ۚ وَاۡتَمِرُوۡا بَيۡنَكُمۡ بِمَعۡرُوۡفٍ​ۚ وَاِنۡ تَعَاسَرۡتُمۡ فَسَتُرۡضِعُ لَهٗۤ اُخۡرٰى ؕ‏

Let them (the divorced women) live where you live with the same standard of living that you have, and according to your best means. Harass them not to make life difficult for them. And if they are pregnant, spend on them freely until they deliver their burden. Then, if they nurse your baby, give them their due recompense. And frequently consult together amicably. And if both of you find it difficult, let another woman suckle the baby on his behalf. [The husband will pay for the services of a foster mother]

Verse 65:7

لِيُنۡفِقۡ ذُوۡ سَعَةٍ مِّنۡ سَعَتِهٖ​ؕ وَمَنۡ قُدِرَ عَلَيۡهِ رِزۡقُهٗ فَلۡيُنۡفِقۡ مِمَّاۤ اٰتٰٮهُ اللّٰهُ​ؕ لَا يُكَلِّفُ اللّٰهُ نَفۡسًا اِلَّا مَاۤ اٰتٰٮهَا​ؕ سَيَجۡعَلُ اللّٰهُ بَعۡدَ عُسۡرٍ يُّسۡرًا‏

Let the affluent man give according to his affluence, and the poor man give according to what resources God has given him. God does not hold anyone accountable beyond what He has given him. God will soon bestow relief after hardship. [6:164, 39:7, 53:38-39]

Verse 65:8

وَكَاَيِّنۡ مِّنۡ قَرۡيَةٍ عَتَتۡ عَنۡ اَمۡرِ رَبِّهَا وَرُسُلِهٖ فَحَاسَبۡنٰهَا حِسَابًا شَدِيۡدًاۙ وَّعَذَّبۡنٰهَا عَذَابًا نُّكۡرًا‏

And how many a community revolted against the command of its Lord and of His Messengers! We called each of them to a stern account and requited it with a dire requital.

Verse 65:9

فَذَاقَتۡ وَبَالَ اَمۡرِهَا وَكَانَ عَاقِبَةُ اَمۡرِهَا خُسۡرًا‏

And thus it tasted the calamitous end of its own doing. For, the consequence of their deeds was an utter loss.

Verse 65:10

اَعَدَّ اللّٰهُ لَهُمۡ عَذَابًا شَدِيۡدًا​ ۙ فَاتَّقُوا اللّٰهَ يٰۤاُولِى الۡاَ لۡبَابِ ۖۚ ۛ الَّذِيۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡا ۛؕ قَدۡ اَنۡزَلَ اللّٰهُ اِلَيۡكُمۡ ذِكۡرًا ۙ‏

God has readied for them awful suffering (in the Hereafter as well). So always be mindful of God, O People of understanding who have chosen to be graced with belief! Certainly, God has sent down to you a Reminder,
