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

أَلَمْ تَرَ إِلَى الَّذِينَ قِيلَ لَهُمْ كُفُّوا أَيْدِيَكُمْ وَأَقِيمُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَآتُوا الزَّكَاةَ فَلَمَّا كُتِبَ عَلَيْهِمُ الْقِتَالُ إِذَا فَرِيقٌ مِنْهُمْ يَخْشَوْنَ النَّاسَ كَخَشْيَةِ اللَّهِ أَوْ أَشَدَّ خَشْيَةً ۚ وَقَالُوا رَبَّنَا لِمَ كَتَبْتَ عَلَيْنَا الْقِتَالَ لَوْلَا أَخَّرْتَنَا إِلَىٰ أَجَلٍ قَرِيبٍ ۗ قُلْ مَتَاعُ الدُّنْيَا قَلِيلٌ وَالْآخِرَةُ خَيْرٌ لِمَنِ اتَّقَىٰ وَلَا تُظْلَمُونَ فَتِيلًا ﴿٧٧﴾
٧٧ - بھلا تم نے ان لوگوں کو نہیں دیکھا جن کو (پہلے یہ) حکم دیا گیا تھا کہ اپنے ہاتھوں کو (جنگ سے) روکے رہو اور نماز پڑھتے رہو اور زکوٰة دیتے رہو پھر جب ان پر جہاد فرض کردیا گیا تو بعض لوگ ان میں سے لوگوں سے یوں ڈرنے لگے جیسے خدا سے ڈرا کرتے ہیں بلکہ اس سے بھی زیادہ اور بڑبڑانے لگے کہ اے خدا تو نے ہم پر جہاد (جلد) کیوں فرض کردیا تھوڑی مدت اور ہمیں کیوں مہلت نہ دی (اے پیغمبر ان س)ے کہہ دو کہ دنیا کا فائدہ بہت تھوڑا ہے اور بہت اچھی چیز تو پرہیزگار کے لئے (نجات) آخرت ہے اور تم پر دھاگے برابر بھی ظلم نہیں کیا جائے گا .
[4:77] Have you not seen those who were told, "Restrain your hands [from fighting] and establish prayer and give zakah"? But then when fighting was ordained for them, at once a party of them feared men as they fear Allah or with [even] greater fear. They said, "Our Lord, why have You decreed upon us fighting? If only You had postponed [it for] us for a short time." Say, The enjoyment of this world is little, and the Hereafter is better for he who fears Allah. And injustice will not be done to you, [even] as much as a thread [inside a date seed]."
