Surah At-Talaq (The Divorce)
This Surah was revealed in Madinah, and it has 12 verses and 2 sections

In the Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Most Merciful

“O Prophet, when you people divorce women, divorce them at a time when the period of "iddah may start! And count the period of "iddah, and fear Allah, your Lord. Do not expel them from their houses, nor should they go out, unless they come up with a clearly shameless act. And these are the limits prescribed by Allah. And whoever exceeds the limits prescribed by Allah wrongs his own self. You do not know (what will happen in future); it may be that Allah brings about a new situation thereafter.” [1]

COMMENTARY: Immediately after the first injunction the believers are exhorted: ('And fear Allah, your Lord') After this exhortation, four more injunctions are set down and then they are admonished that anyone who oversteps Allah's limits will be wronging himself and will have to bear the disastrous consequences, thus Four more indirect injunctions are set down after that, and the admonition is repeated, thus: ('That is what anyone who believes in Allah and the Last Day is exhorted to do...65:2).

Followed by this is a verse in which the merits of taqwa are mentioned, describing its religious and mundane blessings and benefits. Towards the end of the same verse the blessings and benefits of trust in Allah have been described. Thereafter, a few more injunctions pertaining to waiting-period are set down. Then in two more verses additional benefits and blessings of Taqwa are described.

This is followed by injunctions pertaining to marriage, divorce, the wife's maintenance, children's fosterage and so on. In the course of all these injunctions, the mention of the Hereafter, the virtue of taqwa , and the blessings oftrust in Allah are interspersed repeatedly. This Qur'anic style of alternating injunctions with the virtues of taqwa apparently seems disjointed, but having grasped the wisdom of the prudent style of the Qur'an, the close linkage becomes clear.

There are little eyes upon you
And they're watching
night and day

There are little ears
that quickly
Take in every word you say

There are little all eager
To do anything you do

There's a little boy
who's dreaming
Of the day he'll be like you

You're the little fellow's
role model
You're the wisest of the wise

In his little mind about you
No suspicions ever rise
He believes in you devoutly

Holds onto all that you
say and do

He will say and do, in
your way
When he's a grown up like you

There's a wide-eyed
little fellow
Who believes you're
always right

And his ears are always open
As he watches day and night

You are setting an example
Every day in all you do

For the little boy who's
To grow up to be like you

Tim decided to get married.

One evening, after the honeymoon, he was assembling some loads for an upcoming hunt.

His wife was standing there at the bench watching him.
After a long period of silence she finally speaks...

"Honey, I've been thinking ... now that we are married, I think it's time you quit hunting, shooting, hand loading, and fishing. Maybe you should sell your guns and boat.

Tim gets this horrified look on his face.

She says, "Darling, what's wrong?"

Tim: "There for a minute you were sounding like my ex-wife."

"Ex-wife!” she screams, "I didn't know you were married before!"

"I wasn't."
