Description

This sūra takes its name from the many instructions regarding women, but it also offers guidance on a variety of other topics, including the treatment of orphans, marriage, property, inheritance, and fighting. The Prophet is put forward as God’s representative and the supreme arbiter of all disputes. There are also polemical passages against the ‘hypocrites’ and ‘People of the Book,’ as well as a dispute about the crucifixion of Jesus.
