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

وَلَنْ تَسْتَطِيعُوا أَنْ تَعْدِلُوا بَيْنَ النِّسَاءِ وَلَوْ حَرَصْتُمْ ۖ فَلَا تَمِيلُوا كُلَّ الْمَيْلِ فَتَذَرُوهَا كَالْمُعَلَّقَةِ ۚ وَإِنْ تُصْلِحُوا وَتَتَّقُوا فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ غَفُورًا رَحِيمًا ﴿١٢٩﴾
١٢٩ - اور تم خوا کتنا ہی چاہو عورتوں میں ہرگز برابری نہیں کرسکو گے تو ایسا بھی نہ کرنا کہ ایک ہی کی طرف ڈھل جاؤ اور دوسری کو (ایسی حالت میں) چھوڑ دو کہ گویا ادھر ہوا میں لٹک رہی ہے اور اگر آپس میں موافقت کرلو اور پرہیزگاری کرو تو خدا بخشنے والا مہربان ہے .
[4:129] And you will never be able to be equal [in feeling] between wives, even if you should strive [to do so]. So do not incline completely [toward one] and leave another hanging. And if you amend [your affairs] and fear Allah - then indeed, Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful.
[Transliteration] Wa lan tastatee'ooo an ta'diloo bainan nisaaa'i wa law harastum falaa tameeloo kullal maili fatazaroohaa kalmu'al laqah, wa in tuslihoo wa tattaqoo fa innal laaha kaana Ghafoorar Raheema
