56. What is provision for Widows ?

 

Surah No. 2, Al Baqr, Ayat No. 234



وَالَّذِينَ يُتَوَفَّوْنَ مِنْكُمْ وَيَذَرُونَ أَزْوَاجًا يَتَرَبَّصْنَ بِأَنْفُسِهِنَّ أَرْبَعَةَ أَشْهُرٍ

وَعَشْرًا فَإِذَا بَلَغْنَ أَجَلَهُنَّ فَلَا جُنَاحَ عَلَيْكُمْ فِيمَا فَعَلْنَ فِي أَنْفُسِهِنَّ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ

o وَاللَّهُ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ خَبِيرٌ

Translation :



If any of you die and leave behind your widows ; they ( the widows) shall wait for four months and ten days. When they fulfilled their waiting period, there is no sin on you if they dispose of themselves in a just and honourable manner. And Allah is well acquainted with what you do .



Surah No. 2, Al Baqr, Ayat No. 240



وَالَّذِينَ يُتَوَفَّوْنَ مِنْكُمْ وَيَذَرُونَ أَزْوَاجًا وَصِيَّةً لِأَزْوَاجِهِمْ مَتَاعًا إِلَى الْحَوْلِ

إِلَى الْحَوْلِ غَيْرَ إِخْرَاجٍ فَإِنْ خَرَجْنَ فَلَا جُنَاحَ عَلَيْكُمْ فِي مَا فَعَلْنَ فِي أَنْفُسِهِنَّ

o مَعْرُوفٍ وَاللَّهُ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ

Translation :



And those of you who die and leave behind their wives should entrust for their wives a year's maintenance and residence without turning them out, but if they (wives) leave, there is no sin on you for that which they do of themselves, provided it is honourable (e.g. lawful marriage). And Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise.
