- 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

وَيَسْتَفْتُونَكَ فِي النِّسَاءِ ۖ قُلِ اللَّهُ يُفْتِيكُمْ فِيهِنَّ وَمَا يُتْلَىٰ عَلَيْكُمْ فِي الْكِتَابِ فِي يَتَامَى النِّسَاءِ اللَّاتِي لَا تُؤْتُونَهُنَّ مَا كُتِبَ لَهُنَّ وَتَرْغَبُونَ أَنْ تَنْكِحُوهُنَّ وَالْمُسْتَضْعَفِينَ مِنَ الْوِلْدَانِ وَأَنْ تَقُومُوا لِلْيَتَامَىٰ بِالْقِسْطِ ۚ وَمَا تَفْعَلُوا مِنْ خَيْرٍ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ بِهِ عَلِيمًا ﴿١٢٧﴾
١٢٧ - (اے پیغمبر) لوگ تم سے (یتیم) عورتوں کے بارے میں فتویٰ طلب کرتے ہیں۔ کہہ دو کہ خدا تم کو ان کے (ساتھ نکاح کرنے کے) معاملے میں اجازت دیتا ہے اور جو حکم اس کتاب میں پہلے دیا گیا ہے وہ ان یتیم عورتوں کے بارے میں ہے جن کو تم ان کا حق تو دیتے نہیں اور خواہش رکھتے ہو کہ ان کے ساتھ نکاح کرلو اور (نیز) بیچارے بیکس بچوں کے بارے میں۔ اور یہ (بھی حکم دیتا ہے) کہ یتیموں کے بارے میں انصاف پر قائم رہو۔ اور جو بھلائی تم کرو گے خدا اس کو جانتا ہے .
[4:127] And they request from you, [O Muhammad], a [legal] ruling concerning women. Say, "Allah gives you a ruling about them and [about] what has been recited to you in the Book concerning the orphan girls to whom you do not give what is decreed for them - and [yet] you desire to marry them - and concerning the oppressed among children and that you maintain for orphans [their rights] in justice." And whatever you do of good - indeed, Allah is ever Knowing of it.
