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

وَالْمُحْصَنَاتُ مِنَ النِّسَاءِ إِلَّا مَا مَلَكَتْ أَيْمَانُكُمْ ۖ كِتَابَ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ ۚ وَأُحِلَّ لَكُمْ مَا وَرَاءَ ذَٰلِكُمْ أَنْ تَبْتَغُوا بِأَمْوَالِكُمْ مُحْصِنِينَ غَيْرَ مُسَافِحِينَ ۚ فَمَا اسْتَمْتَعْتُمْ بِهِ مِنْهُنَّ فَآتُوهُنَّ أُجُورَهُنَّ فَرِيضَةً ۚ وَلَا جُنَاحَ عَلَيْكُمْ فِيمَا تَرَاضَيْتُمْ بِهِ مِنْ بَعْدِ الْفَرِيضَةِ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ عَلِيمًا حَكِيمًا ﴿٢٤﴾
٢٤ - اور شوہر والی عورتیں بھی (تم پر حرام ہیں) مگر وہ جو (اسیر ہو کر لونڈیوں کے طور پر) تمہارے قبضے میں آجائیں (یہ حکم) خدا نے تم کو لکھ دیا ہے اور ان (محرمات) کے سوا اور عورتیں تم کو حلال ہیں اس طرح سے کہ مال خرچ کر کے ان سے نکاح کرلو بشرطیکہ (نکاح سے) مقصود عفت قائم رکھنا ہو نہ شہوت رانی تو جن عورتوں سے تم فائدہ حاصل کرو ان کا مہر جو مقرر کیا ہو ادا کردو اور اگر مقرر کرنے کے بعد آپس کی رضامندی سے مہر میں کمی بیشی کرلو تو تم پر کچھ گناہ نہیں بےشک خدا سب کچھ جاننے والا (اور) حکمت والا ہے .
[4:24] And [also prohibited to you are all] married women except those your right hands possess. [This is] the decree of Allah upon you. And lawful to you are [all others] beyond these, [provided] that you seek them [in marriage] with [gifts from] your property, desiring chastity, not unlawful sexual intercourse. So for whatever you enjoy [of marriage] from them, give them their due compensation as an obligation. And there is no blame upon you for what you mutually agree to beyond the obligation. Indeed, Allah is ever Knowing and Wise.
