What Does 65:4 Really Mean?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Quran 65:4 "And those who no longer expect menstruation among your women - if you doubt, then their period is three months, and [also for] those who have not menstruated. And for those who are pregnant, their term is until they give birth. And whoever fears Allah - He will make for him of his matter ease."

Tafsir Al-Jalalayn:

And [as for] those of your women who (read allā’ī or allā’i in both instances) no longer expect to menstruate, if you have any doubts, about their waiting period, their prescribed [waiting] period shall be three months, and [also for] those who have not yet menstruated, because of their young age, their period shall [also] be three months — both cases apply to other than those whose spouses have died; for these [latter] their period is prescribed in the verse: they shall wait by themselves for four months and ten [days] [Q. 2:234]. And those who are pregnant, their term, the conclusion of their prescribed [waiting] period if divorced or if their spouses be dead, shall be when they deliver. And whoever fears God, He will make matters ease for him, in this world and in the Hereafter.

That is a sunni tafsir do the shia have a different opinion? Is this verse really talking about the divorce of young girls? What are your thoughts?

Well I found this... maybe it can help.

 

Abu Abdullah (a.s.) having said: ‘The waiting period of the woman who does not menstruate, and the menstruating woman who is not clean(from it) is of threemonths. And the waiting period of the one who menstruates and her menstruation is established, is of three periods’.

http://hubeali.co.uk/books/English-Books/Tafseer-e-Quran/Tafseer Sura Al Talaaq_CH 65.pdf


Issue 869: The woman who does not menstruate due to an illness or some other reason, when the man desires to divorce her, it is obligatory that he allow a period of three months to pass from (the time of) his intercourse with her avoiding intercourse with her in this period. Then, he can divorce her after that, if he wants.

O yes i see the 'despaired' is for the first catagory and then after that it says 'those who have not menstruated'. So this is regarding women whose periods are irregular or late or have stopped because of illness?

Dear friend,

 

According to shia interpretation of holy Quran

(وَ اللَّائِي لَمْ يَحِضْنَ)

" those who have not menstruated"

is not included  just young girls, Maybe one woman has reached to puberty but she has not  menstruated because of its illness.

Salamun alaykum

Tafsir Nimoonih explains this verse as follows:

Quote

“Three groups of women who are to take a divorce, are said here how to be treated.
Here, the rules to be observed is about the women with a terminated menstruation- the women who have had no menstruation yet; and those who are pregnant:-
``As to the women who have ceased menstruating and those who have no menstruation; their waiting period is three months if you think they might be pregnant.''
Generally, the waiting period is three monthly courses after separation. If the courses are doubtful, the waiting period shall be three calendar months to prove if there is a pregnancy. If she is proved to be pregnant they will have to wait until child-birth.”
What does “the women who have had no menstruation yet” mean? It can mean “those
who have not menstruated after maturation” their period time is three months for sure.

And it can mean “those who have not menstruated whether they are mature or not. But it’s well-known among Shia scholars that a young girl who is not mature after getting divorced, it’s not obligatory for her to wait for three months. Though some of scholars disagree and they bring some narrations to support their own idea.
