The title of the fourth chapter of the Qur’an (An Nisaa) means “Women.” It deals with many issues regarding women, family life, marriage, and divorce. Chronologically, the chapter also falls shortly after the Muslims’ defeat at the Battle of Uhud.

Surah An Nisa Ayahs 24 to 147 (Part 2)

  • [4:59] Judge fairly between two parties, even though you prefer one of them! Solve arguments looking at what Allah instructs and not in ways you “feel” is best.
  • [4:69] Obeying Allah and His Messenger will make you gain the companionship of the prophets, siddiqeen, martyrs and righteous ones in Jannah.
  • [4:76] The Believers strive in the way of Allah and the disbelievers strive in the way of Taghoot and both groups have different goals.
  • [4:78] No matter how safe you think you are, death will find you- so don’t ever fear men over Allah- and do your duty.
  • [4:79] Whenever you are afflicted by pain or problems, reflect over your past sins and immediately repent.
  • [4:82] Contemplate (tadabbur) at least one ayah from the Quran a day.
  • [4:86] Say Assalamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu to those you know and those you do not know of Muslims.
  • [4:92] Killing/Murdering a believer intentionally is the most hateful thing to Allah and its punishment is the Hell fire.
  • [4:97] There’s a big reward for the ones who do hijrah for the pleasure of Allah. One can also do hijrah by leaving off a sinful life, repenting and turning to Allah.
  • [4:103] Make praying ON TIME a priority and ask Allah to help you pray on time. You will instantly feel the effect on your emaan when you pray on time. Qasr [shortening the prayer] is allowed during travelling and Salat Al Khawf is allowed during war.
  • [4:104] After praying, do a lot of dhikr and tasbeeh, whether it is while you are sitting, standing or lying down. Just remember Allah a lot.
  • [4:114] Secret talk is allowed if it is regarding a righteous deeds. However secret talk while you backbite, gossip and envy is forbidden.
  • [4:119] Know shaytan is your enemy and increase in saying with conviction (as if it is a sword): aoodhu billahi minash shaytanir rajeem! Study ways how shaytan deceives people and learn from them.
  • [4:123] Success is only achieved by doing righteous deeds and not by wishful thinking. Take steps to please Allah and watch your life get better.
  • [4:128] Arguments between a husband and wife can be solved by forfeiting rights between each other. This peaceful agreement is better than divorce.
  • [4:134] Don’t just expect reward of Dunya. Strive in doing good deeds while focusing on the reward of the Hereafter.
  • [4:136] Believers should always keep adhering to their eeman and maintain it so that their actions become righteous.
  • [4:135] Always stand up and witness to the truth, even if it is against yourself.
  • [4:139] Never seek your honour in careers, reputations, joining forces with those who don’t fear Allah in order to gain power or to win an argument. Real honour (‘izzah) is in Islam and obeying Allah.
  • [4:140] It’s not allowed to sit in gatherings when people make fun of Islam or the commands of Allah.
  • [4:142] You have energy for anything but when it comes to salah you feel tired? Standing lazy in salah, praying differently when with people and not being present with your heart are signs of hypocrites. Check yourself!
  • [4:142-143] Deceiving Allah, being lazy in performing prayers or showing off when praying, not remembering Allah and always staying doubting about the aspects of Deen are traits of the hypocrites.
  • [4:146] Stay away from hypocrisy. Repent, return to Allah, hold on to His rules and submit truly and sincerely to Islam.
  • [4:147] Be more grateful and complain less. Constantly complaining about big or small matters becomes a habit ( it’s too hot! the same food again? etc). Realize that being grateful is a way to avert the punishment of Allah.
    May Allah guide us to reflect and act on these points, Aameen !!
