M.Pickthall
1. In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Yusuf Ali
1. In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.





M.Pickthall
1. Allah hath heard the saying of her that disputeth with thee (Muhammad) concerning 
her husband, and complaineth unto Allah. And Allah heareth your colloquy. Lo! Allah 
is Nearer, Knower.
Yusuf Ali
1. Allah has indeed heard (and accepted) the statement of the woman who pleads with 
thee concerning her husband and carries her complaint (in prayer) to Allah: and Allah 
(always) hears the arguments between both sides among you: for Allah hears and sees 
(all things).





M.Pickthall
2. Such of you as put away your wives (by saying they are as their mothers) They are 
not their mothers; none are their mothers except those who gave them birth they 
indeed utter an ill word and a lie. And lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
Yusuf Ali
2. If any men among you divorce their wives by Zihar (calling them mothers) they 
cannot be their mothers: none can be their mothers except those who gave them birth.  
And in fact they use words (both) iniquitous and false: but truly Allah is one that 
blots out (sins) and forgives (again and again).





M.Pickthall
3. Those who put away their wives (by saying they are as their mothers) and afterward 
would go back on that which they have said; (the penalty) in that case (is) the 
freeing of a slave before they touch one another. Unto this ye are exhorted; and Allah 
is informed of what ye do.
Yusuf Ali
3. But those who divorce their wives by Zihar then wish to go back on the words they 
uttered (it is ordained that such a one) should free a slave before they touch each 
other: this are ye admonished to perform: and Allah is well-acquainted with (all) that 
ye do.





M.Pickthall
4. And he who findeth not (the wherewithal), let him fast for two successive months 
before they touch one another; and for him who is unable to do so (the penance is) 
the feeding of sixty needy ones. This, that ye may put trust in Allah and His messenger. 
Such are the limits (imposed by Allah); and for disbelievers is a painful doom.
Yusuf Ali
4. And if any has not (the wherewithal) he should fast for two months consecutively 
before they touch each other.  But if any is unable to do so he should feed sixty 
indigent ones.  This that ye may show your faith in Allah and His Apostle.  Those are 
limits (set by) Allah. For those who Reject (Him) there is a grievous Penalty.
