سورة المجادلة

58. Al-Mujadila

She that disputes

Total verses: 22
Revealed in: Medina

- Saheeh International (English)
- Mawlana Fateh Muhammad Jalandhari (Urdu)

The surah that mentions the complaint of Khawlah bint Thaʿlabah to the Prophet as The Pleader for dignity of women against the abominable practice whereby husbands estranged their wives from intimacy on false pretext. It takes its name from the phrase "pleads with you" (tujādiluka) mentioned in verse 1. The surah disallows a specific pagan divorce practice. It goes on to state that those who oppose God and His messenger, who secretly ally themselves with Satan, who lie in their oaths and make intrigues against the Prophet, will be defeated and suffer humiliation both in this world and in the next (verse 5 and verse 20), while those on God’s side will triumph (verse 22).
The surah is also known as She Who Argued, She Who Pleaded, The Disputant, The Dispute, The Disputer, The Disputing Woman, The Pleading Woman, The Woman Who Pleads

Detailed verse by verse explanation of Quran in Urdu by Late Dr. Israr Ahmad.

فَمَنْ لَمْ يَجِدْ فَصِيَامُ شَهْرَيْنِ مُتَتَابِعَيْنِ مِنْ قَبْلِ أَنْ يَتَمَاسَّا ۖ فَمَنْ لَمْ يَسْتَطِعْ فَإِطْعَامُ سِتِّينَ مِسْكِينًا ۚ ذَٰلِكَ لِتُؤْمِنُوا بِاللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ ۚ وَتِلْكَ حُدُودُ اللَّهِ ۗ وَلِلْكَافِرِينَ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ ﴿٤﴾
٤ - جس کو غلام نہ ملے وہ مجامعت سے پہلے متواتر دو مہینے کے روزے (رکھے) جس کو اس کا بھی مقدور نہ ہوا (اسے) ساٹھ مسکینوں کو کھانا کھلانا (چاہیئے)۔ یہ (حکم) اس لئے (ہے) کہ تم خدا اور اسکے رسول کے فرمانبردار ہوجاؤ۔ اور یہ خدا کی حدیں ہیں۔ اور نہ ماننے والوں کے لئے درد دینے والا عذاب ہے .
[58:4] And he who does not find [a slave] - then a fast for two months consecutively before they touch one another; and he who is unable - then the feeding of sixty poor persons. That is for you to believe [completely] in Allah and His Messenger; and those are the limits [set by] Allah. And for the disbelievers is a painful punishment.
[Transliteration] Famal lam yajid fa siyaamu shahraini mutataabi'ayni min qabli any-yatamaaassaa famal lam yastati' fa-it'aamu sitteena miskeena, zaalika litu'minoo billaahi wa rasoolih'wa tilka hudoodul laah, wa lilkaafireena 'azaabun aleem
