SURA 4- THE WOMEN.

BELIEVE TO HAVE BEEN REVEALED BETWEEN THE BATTLE OF UHUD AND THE SIEGE OF MEDINAH.

WOMEN

  • MEN ARE WOMEN'S GUARDIANS
  • THE DUTY OF WOMEN IS TO REPRODUCE AS THE GIVERS OF LIFE(GIVEN POSITIONS OF HONOURS AS MOTHERS)
  • A MAN CAN MARRY UPTO FOUR WOMEN BUT THEY ALL HAVE TO BE TREATED EQUALLY
  • WOMEN CANNOT MARRY A MAN IF THEY ARE A CLOSE BLOOD RELATION
  • WOMEN CANT MARRY IS THEY ARE ALREADY MARRIED UNLESS SHE IS A PRISONER AND THEY HAVE THE CONSENT OF THEIR MASTER.
  • IF A WOMEN IS MISTREATED BY HER HUSBAND SHE SHOULD TRY AGAIN FOR RECONCILIATION

QUOTES

  • "MEN ARE APPOINTED GUARDIANS OVER WOMEN"
  • "MARRY OF OTHER WOMEN, TWO OR THREE OR FOUR, BUT IF YOU FEEL YOU WILL NOT DEAL JUSTLY BETWEEN THEM THEN MARRY ONE ONE"

MARRIAGE

  • A MAN MAY MARRY UP TO FOUR WOMEN BUT ALL HAVE TO BE EQUALLY TREATED
  • A DOWRY IS PAID WHEN A COUPLE ARE TO MARRY TO THE FEMALE
  • IF A WOMEN IS ILL TREATED BY HER HUSBAND, THEY SHOULD AIM FOR  RECONCILATION
  • A MAN CANNOT MARRY THE SISTERS OF ONE OF HIS WIVES, A WOMEN HIS FATHER HAS MARRIED, A WOMEN WHO BREAST FED HIM OR HER DAUGHTER.
  • A 'GO' BETWEEN IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE THEY USUALLY HAVE THE ROLE OF SETTING UP THE MARRIAGE
  • FORNICATION IS NOT ALLOWED
  • A WOMEN PRISONER WHO IS ALREADY MARRIED MAY MARRY ANOTHER IF HER FIRST HUSBAND CONSENTS AND WANTS NOTHING TO DO WITH HER

QUOTES

  • "MARRY NOT A WOMEN WHOM YOUR FATHER HAS MARRIED, WHAT HAS PASSED HAS PASSED. IT WAS A FOUL AND HATEFUL PRACTISE AND AN EVIL WAY"
  • "IF THEY DESIRE RECONCILIATION. ALLAH WILL BRING ABOUT ACCORD BETWEEN HUSBAND AND WIFE"

ORPHANS

  • DON'T TAKE ORPHANS' PROPERTY AWAY FROM THEM
  • WHEN MATURE ENOUGH ORPHANS SHOULD BE GIVEN THEIR PROPERTY…
