- 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

لَا يَسْتَوِي الْقَاعِدُونَ مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ غَيْرُ أُولِي الضَّرَرِ وَالْمُجَاهِدُونَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ بِأَمْوَالِهِمْ وَأَنْفُسِهِمْ ۚ فَضَّلَ اللَّهُ الْمُجَاهِدِينَ بِأَمْوَالِهِمْ وَأَنْفُسِهِمْ عَلَى الْقَاعِدِينَ دَرَجَةً ۚ وَكُلًّا وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الْحُسْنَىٰ ۚ وَفَضَّلَ اللَّهُ الْمُجَاهِدِينَ عَلَى الْقَاعِدِينَ أَجْرًا عَظِيمًا ﴿٩٥﴾
٩٥ - جو مسلمان (گھروں میں) بیٹھ رہتے (اور لڑنے سے جی چراتے) ہیں اور کوئی عذر نہیں رکھتے وہ اور جو خدا کی راہ میں اپنے مال اور جان سے لڑتے ہیں وہ دونوں برابر نہیں ہو سکتے خدا نے مال اور جان سے جہاد کرنے والوں کو بیٹھ رہنے والوں پر درجے میں فضیلت بخشی ہے اور (گو) نیک وعدہ سب سے ہے لیکن اجر عظیم کے لحاظ سے خدا نے جہاد کرنے والوں کو بیٹھ رہنے والوں پر کہیں فضیلت بخشی ہے .
[4:95] Not equal are those believers remaining [at home] - other than the disabled - and the mujahideen, [who strive and fight] in the cause of Allah with their wealth and their lives. Allah has preferred the mujahideen through their wealth and their lives over those who remain [behind], by degrees. And to both Allah has promised the best [reward]. But Allah has preferred the mujahideen over those who remain [behind] with a great reward -
[Transliteration] Laa yastawil qaa'idoona Minal mu'mineena ghairu ulid darari walmujaahidoona fee sabeelil laahi bi amwaalihim wa anfusihim, faddalal laahul mujaahideena bi amwaalihim wa anfusihim, faddalal laahul mujaahideena bi am waalihim wa anfusihim 'alalqaa'ideena darajab, wa kullanw wa'adal laahul husnaa, wa faddalal laahul mujaahideena 'alal qaa'ideena ajran 'azeemaa

دَرَجَاتٍ مِنْهُ وَمَغْفِرَةً وَرَحْمَةً ۚ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ غَفُورًا رَحِيمًا ﴿٩٦﴾
٩٦ - (یعنی) خدا کی طرف سے درجات میں اور بخشش میں اور رحمت میں اور خدا بڑا بخشنے والا (اور) مہربان ہے .
[4:96] Degrees [of high position] from Him and forgiveness and mercy. And Allah is ever Forgiving and Merciful.
