- Saheeh International (English)
- Mawlana Fateh Muhammad Jalandhari (Urdu)

The surah that enshrines the spiritual-, property-, lineage-, and marriage-rights and obligations of Women. It makes frequent reference to matters concerning women (nisāʾ), hence its name. The surah gives a number of instructions, urging justice to children and orphans, and mentioning inheritance and marriage laws. In the first and last verses of the surah, it gives rulings on property and inheritance. The surah also talks of the tensions between the Muslim community in Medina and some of the People of the Book ( verse 44 and verse 61 ), moving into a general discussion of war: it warns the Muslims to be cautious and to defend the weak and helpless ( verse 71 ff.). Another similar theme is the intrigues of the hypocrites ( verse 88ff. and verse 138 ff.).
The surah is also known as The Woman

وَلَأُضِلَّنَّهُمْ وَلَأُمَنِّيَنَّهُمْ وَلَآمُرَنَّهُمْ فَلَيُبَتِّكُنَّ آذَانَ الْأَنْعَامِ وَلَآمُرَنَّهُمْ فَلَيُغَيِّرُنَّ خَلْقَ اللَّهِ ۚ وَمَنْ يَتَّخِذِ الشَّيْطَانَ وَلِيًّا مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ فَقَدْ خَسِرَ خُسْرَانًا مُبِينًا ﴿١١٩﴾
١١٩ - اور ان کو گمراہ کرتا اور امیدیں دلاتا ہروں گا اور یہ سکھاتا رہوں گا کہ جانوروں کے کان چیرتے رہیں اور (یہ بھی) کہتا رہوں گا کہ وہ خدا کی بنائی ہوئی صورتوں کو بدلتے رہیں اور جس شخص نے خدا کو چھوڑ کر شیطان کو دوست بنایا اور وہ صریح نقصان میں پڑ گیا .
[4:119] And I will mislead them, and I will arouse in them [sinful] desires, and I will command them so they will slit the ears of cattle, and I will command them so they will change the creation of Allah." And whoever takes Satan as an ally instead of Allah has certainly sustained a clear loss.

يَعِدُهُمْ وَيُمَنِّيهِمْ ۖ وَمَا يَعِدُهُمُ الشَّيْطَانُ إِلَّا غُرُورًا ﴿١٢٠﴾
١٢٠ - وہ ان کو وعدے دیتا رہا اور امیدیں دلاتا ہے اور جو کچھ شیطان انہیں وعدے دیتا ہے جو دھوکا ہی دھوکا ہے .
[4:120] Satan promises them and arouses desire in them. But Satan does not promise them except delusion.
