Ayahs 234 – 242
Ayah 234
And those who are taken in death among you
and leave wives behind - they, [the wives,
shall] wait four months and ten [days]. And
when they have fulfilled their term, then
there is no blame upon you for what they
do with themselves in an acceptable
manner. And Allah is [fully] Acquainted
with what you do.
“It is not lawful for a woman who
believes in Allah and the Last Day,
that she should mourn a dead
person for more than three days
except in the case of her husband
whom she should mourn for four
months and ten days.”
[Muslim]
Ayah 235
There is no blame upon you for that to which you
[indirectly] allude concerning a proposal to women or for
what you conceal within yourselves. Allah knows that
you will have them in mind. But do not promise them
secretly except for saying a proper saying. And do not
determine to undertake a marriage contract until the
decreed period reaches its end. And know that Allah
knows what is within yourselves, so beware of Him. And
know that Allah is Forgiving and Forbearing.

Reflection
• Nowadays no one even thinks of
sending the widowed/divorced
woman a proposal because she’s seen
as “used” or “baggage”
Ayah 236
There is no blame upon you if you divorce
women you have not touched nor specified
for them an obligation. But give them [a gift
of] compensation - the wealthy according to
his capability and the poor according to his
capability - a provision according to what is
acceptable, a duty upon the doers of good.
&
Ayah 237
And if you divorce them before you have touched
them and you have already specified for them an
obligation, then [give] half of what you specified unless they forego the right or the one in whose
hand is the marriage contract foregoes it. And to
forego it is nearer to righteousness. And do not
forget graciousness between you. Indeed Allah , of
whatever you do, is Seeing.
&
Ayah 238
Maintain with care the [obligatory] prayers
and [in particular] the middle prayer and
stand before Allah , devoutly obedient.

Ayah 239
And if you fear [an enemy, then pray] on
foot or riding. But when you are secure,
then remember Allah [in prayer], as He
has taught you that which you did not
[previously] know.

(In state of fear)

Riding
Can’t Delay the Salah!
Allah is alGhafoor arRaheem. He will
forgive me.
I know I have to
pray, but I am
too tired & lazy.
I am SO busy at
work, I don't
have time to
pray
I pray; I just delay
it until it is
convenient for me
or I pray it Qadaa
When Allaah
guides me, i will
I pray the 4
prayers. I only
miss Fajr because I
have to do Ghusl
If I pray, I will
be fired from
my job!
I can't pray at my
job/school/public place.
I am too embarrassed
/they will think I am a
TERRORIST!
I have made so many
mistakes in my life,
it is no use for me to
pray. Allah will never
forgive me.
I want to pray but
my children are so
young I can't leave
them and pray
If I pray, people
will think that I
show off. So I don't
pray
I don't pray, but
I have a good
heart
Prophet (s.a.w) mentioned prayer one
day and said: "Whoever observes it
regularly, it will be light and a proof
and salvation on the Day of
Resurrection, and whoever does not
observe it regularly, it will not be a
light or a proof or salvation for him,
and on the Day of Resurrection he will
be with Qaroon, Fir'aun, Hamaan and
Ubayy ibn Khalaf." (Ahmad).
These four people are mentioned because they are
the leaders of kufr. This makes an important point
about the one who does not observe regular prayer,
whether that is because he is distracted by his
wealth, his power, his position of leadership or his
business. The one who is distracted from it by his
wealth will be with Qaroon; the one who is
distracted by his power will be with Fir'aun; the
one who is distracted by his position of leadership
will be with Hamaan and the one who is distracted
by his business will be with Ubayy ibn Khalaf."
Remember Allah!

Ayah 240
And those who are taken in death among you
and leave wives behind - for their wives is a
bequest: maintenance for one year without
turning [them] out. But if they leave [of their
own accord], then there is no blame upon you
for what they do with themselves in an
acceptable way. And Allah is Exalted in Might
and Wise.
Will: Maintenance for One Year
Own Share in Inheritance
Ayah 241
And for divorced women is a provision
according to what is acceptable - a duty
upon the righteous.

Thus does Allah make clear to you His
verses that you might use reason.
Before these ayahs, perhaps we
had no idea about the importance
of ihsaan and gift giving even
during times of divorce 

women that He allows them to have time on
their own after their husband passes away so
that they are not bothered by advances of
other people
