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 anew situation thereafter.” [1]

This Surah opens with the vocative expression (0 Prophet), which, according to Imam Qurtubi, is generally used where the rule declared after that is intended to apply to the entire body of the believers. Where the injunction is exclusively meant for the person of the Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, he is addressed as (0 Messenger).

In this context, the vocative expression (0 Prophet) is singular and as such it required that the verb should be singular as well to comply with the Arabic grammatical rule of concordance, but we notice that the verb used is the second person plural thus: (0 prophet! when you people divorce women).

In terms of literary usage and rules of eloquence, there are two types of plural: plural of number and honorific plural. Plural of number applies to three or more persons, but often the plural may refer to one person only, in which case it expresses respect or honour and is called honorific plural. In the light of this rule, the plural verb addresses the 'prophet' directly as a mark of respect and honour, and at the same time it indicates that the injunction is not restricted to him exclusively, but it applies to the entire body of believers.

Some scholars, however, are of the view that a sentence is understood here in the following way: which means: 0 prophet! say to the believers that when they divorce their wives, they should observe the following procedure'.

I sit here all alone and my eyes are flooded with tears
Who is there for me, to express my heart’s fears?

I sit here and wait, for soon, that day will come
When I shall have to answer for everything I have done

I sit here and I wonder what will happen on that day
When our limbs will speak and our tongue will have no say?

I sit here by my self where no body can see me cry
What will I say on that day when one cannot lie?

I sit here and think of my sins that I have committed
And hope that on that day, that they will be omitted

I sit here and my heart feels broken in two
I hope, that on that day, my fears will not be true

I sit here, where Allah sees me from above high
I turn towards Allah, asking for forgiveness, and drawing a sigh!

I sit here whilst my tears flow into my face
Hoping to gain some love from the One who is feared

I sit here, shivering and hoping that on that day
Our beloved Nabi (Sallallahu alaihi wasalaam) will not turn his blessed face away

I sit here; I ask, plead and beg ‘Ya Allah!
Make me not from those upon you have sent your wrath’

I sit here, close my eyes and listen to the Qur’aan
‘Ya Allah, when I return to You, let it be with Imaan’

I sit here and whilst wiping my tears away
I ask from Allah one thing, ‘Don’t let me go astray.
