- 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

وَابْتَلُوا الْيَتَامَىٰ حَتَّىٰ إِذَا بَلَغُوا النِّكَاحَ فَإِنْ آنَسْتُمْ مِنْهُمْ رُشْدًا فَادْفَعُوا إِلَيْهِمْ أَمْوَالَهُمْ ۖ وَلَا تَأْكُلُوهَا إِسْرَافًا وَبِدَارًا أَنْ يَكْبَرُوا ۚ وَمَنْ كَانَ غَنِيًّا فَلْيَسْتَعْفِفْ ۖ وَمَنْ كَانَ فَقِيرًا فَلْيَأْكُلْ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ ۚ فَإِذَا دَفَعْتُمْ إِلَيْهِمْ أَمْوَالَهُمْ فَأَشْهِدُوا عَلَيْهِمْ ۚ وَكَفَىٰ بِاللَّهِ حَسِيبًا ﴿٦﴾
٦ - اور یتمیوں کو بالغ ہونے تک کام کاج میں مصروف رکھو پھر (بالغ ہونے پر) اگر ان میں عقل کی پختگی دیکھو تو ان کا مال ان کے حوالے کردو اور اس خوف سے کہ وہ بڑے ہوجائیں گے (یعنی بڑے ہو کر تم سے اپنا مال واپس لے لیں گے) اس کو فضول خرچی اور جلدی میں نہ اڑا دینا۔ جو شخص آسودہ حال ہو اس کو (ایسے مال سے قطعی طور پر) پرہیز رکھنا چاہیئے اور جو بے مقدور ہو وہ مناسب طور پر (یعنی بقدر خدمت) کچھ لے لے اور جب ان کا مال ان کے حوالے کرنے لگو تو گواہ کرلیا کرو۔ اور حقیقت میں تو خدا ہی (گواہ اور) حساب لینے والا کافی ہے .
[4:6] And test the orphans [in their abilities] until they reach marriageable age. Then if you perceive in them sound judgement, release their property to them. And do not consume it excessively and quickly, [anticipating] that they will grow up. And whoever, [when acting as guardian], is self-sufficient should refrain [from taking a fee]; and whoever is poor - let him take according to what is acceptable. Then when you release their property to them, bring witnesses upon them. And sufficient is Allah as Accountant.
