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.).

أَيْنَمَا تَكُونُوا يُدْرِكْكُمُ الْمَوْتُ وَلَوْ كُنْتُمْ فِي بُرُوجٍ مُشَيَّدَةٍ ۗ وَإِنْ تُصِبْهُمْ حَسَنَةٌ يَقُولُوا هَٰذِهِ مِنْ عِنْدِ اللَّهِ ۖ وَإِنْ تُصِبْهُمْ سَيِّئَةٌ يَقُولُوا هَٰذِهِ مِنْ عِنْدِكَ ۚ قُلْ كُلٌّ مِنْ عِنْدِ اللَّهِ ۖ فَمَالِ هَٰؤُلَاءِ الْقَوْمِ لَا يَكَادُونَ يَفْقَهُونَ حَدِيثًا ﴿٧٨﴾
٧٨ - (اے جہاد سے ڈرنے والو) تم کہیں رہو موت تو تمہیں آ کر رہے گی خواہ بڑے بڑے محلوں میں رہو اور ان لوگوں کو اگر کوئی فائدہ پہنچتا ہے تو کہتے ہیں یہ خدا کی طرف سے ہے اور اگر کوئی گزند پہنچتا ہے تو (اے محمدﷺ تم سے) کہتے ہیں کہ یہ گزند آپ کی وجہ سے (ہمیں پہنچا) ہے کہہ دو کہ (رنج وراحت) سب اللہ ہی کی طرف سے ہے ان لوگوں کو کیا ہوگیا ہے کہ بات بھی نہیں سمجھ سکتے.
[4:78] Wherever you may be, death will overtake you, even if you should be within towers of lofty construction. But if good comes to them, they say, "This is from Allah "; and if evil befalls them, they say, "This is from you." Say, "All [things] are from Allah." So what is [the matter] with those people that they can hardly understand any statement?
[Transliteration] Ainamaa takoonoo yudrikkumul mawtu wa law kuntum fee buroojim mushai yadah, wa in tusibhum hasanatuny yaqooloo haazihee min indil laahi wa in tusibhum saiyi'atuny yaqooloo haazihee min 'indik, qul kullum min 'indillaahi famaa lihaaa 'ulaaa'il qawmi laa yakkaadoona yafqahoona hadeesaa
