This is a compilation of all the verses in
Quran that refers to "women".
49. And when We delivered you from Firon's people, who
subjected you to severe torment, killing your sons and
sparing your women, and in this there was a great trial from
221. And do not marry the idolatresses until they
believe, and certainly a believing maid is better than an
idolatress woman, even though she should please you; and do
not give (believing women) in marriage to idolaters until
they believe, and certainly a believing servant is better
than an idolater, even though he should please you; these
invite to the fire, and Allah invites to the garden and to
forgiveness by His will, and makes clear His communications
to men, that they may be mindful.
222. And they ask you about menstruation. Say: It is a
discomfort; therefore keep aloof from the women during the
menstrual discharge and do not go near them until they have
become clean; then when they have cleansed themselves, go in
to them as Allah has commanded you; surely Allah loves those
who turn much (to Him), and He loves those who purify
228. And the divorced women should keep themselves in
waiting for three courses; and it is not lawful for them
that they should conceal what Allah has created in their
wombs, if they believe in Allah and the last day; and their
husbands have a better right to take them back in the
meanwhile if they wish for reconciliation; and they have
rights similar to those against them in a just manner, and
the men are a degree above them, and Allah is Mighty, Wise.
231. And when you divorce women and they reach their
prescribed time, then either retain them in good fellowship
or set them free with liberality, and do not retain them for
injury, so that you exceed the limits, and whoever does
this, he indeed is unjust to his own soul; and do not take
Allah's communications for a mockery, and remember the favor
of Allah upon you, and that which He has revealed to you of
the Book and the Wisdom, admonishing you thereby; and be
careful (of your duty to) Allah, and know that Allah is the
Knower of all things.
232. And when you have divorced women and they have
ended-- their term (of waiting), then do not prevent them
from marrying their husbands when they agree among
themselves in a lawful manner; with this is admonished he
among you who believes in Allah and the last day, this is
more profitable and purer for you; and Allah knows while you
do not know.
235. And there is no blame on you respecting that which
you speak indirectly in the asking of (such) women in
marriage or keep (the proposal) concealed within your minds;
Allah knows that you win mention them, but do not give them
a promise in secret unless you speak in a lawful manner, and
do not confirm the marriage tie until the writing is
fulfilled, and know that Allah knows what is in your minds,
therefore beware of Him, and know that Allah is Forgiving,
236. There is no blame on you if you divorce women when
you have not touched them or appointed for them a portion,
and make provision for them, the wealthy according to his
means and the straitened in circumstances according to his
means, a provision according to usage; (this is) a duty on
the doers of good (to others).
241. And for the divorced women (too) provision (must be
made) according to usage; (this is) a duty on those who
guard (against evil).
282. O you who believe! when you deal with each other in
contracting a debt for a fixed time, then write it down; and
let a scribe write it down between you with fairness; and
the scribe should not refuse to write as Allah has taught
him, so he should write; and let him who owes the debt
dictate, and he should be careful of (his duty to) Allah,
his Lord, and not diminish anything from it; but if he who
owes the debt is unsound in understanding, or weak, or (if)
he is not able to dictate himself, let his guardian dictate
with fairness; and call in to witness from among your men
two witnesses; but if there are not two men, then one man
and two women from among those whom you choose to be
witnesses, so that if one of the two errs, the second of the
two may remind the other; and the witnesses should not
refuse when they are summoned; and be not averse to writing
it (whether it is) small or large, with the time of its
falling due; this is more equitable in the sight of Allah
and assures greater accuracy in testimony, and the nearest
(way) that you may not entertain doubts (afterwards), except
when it is ready merchandise which you give and take among
yourselves from hand to hand, then there is no blame on you
in not writing it down; and have witnesses when you barter
with one another, and let no harm be done to the scribe or
to the witness; and if you do (it) then surely it will be a
transgression in you, and be careful of (your duty) to
Allah, Allah teaches you, and Allah knows all things.
From 003.TheFamily of Imran:
14. The love of desires, of women and sons and hoarded
treasures of gold and silver and well bred horses and cattle
and tilth, is made to seem fair to men; this is the
provision of the life of this world; and Allah is He with
Whom is the good goal (of life).
41. He said: My Lord! appoint a sign for me. Said He:
Your sign is that you should not speak to men for three days
except by signs; and remember your Lord much and glorify Him
in the evening and the morning. f42. And when the angels
said: O Marium! surely Allah has chosen you and purified you
and chosen you above the women of of the world.
61. But whoever disputes with you in this matter after
what has come to you of knowledge, then say: Come let us
call our sons and your sons and our women and your women and
our near people and your near people, then let us be earnest
in prayer, and pray for the curse of Allah on the liars.
O people! be careful of (your duty to) your Lord, Who
created you from a single being and created its mate of the
same (kind) and spread from these two, many men and women;
and be careful of (your duty to) Allah, by Whom you demand
one of another (your rights), and (to) the ties of
relationship; surely Allah ever watches over you.
And if you fear that you cannot act equitably towards
orphans, then marry such women as seem good to you, two and
three and four; but if you fear that you will not do justice
(between them), then (marry) only one or what your right
hands possess; this is more proper, that you may not deviate
from the right course.
And give women their dowries as a free gift, but if they
of themselves be pleased to give up to you a portion of it,
then eat it with enjoyment and with wholesome result.
Men shall have a portion of what the parents and the near
relatives leave, and women shall have a portion of what the
parents and the near relatives leave, whether there is
little or much of it; a stated portion.
And as for those who are guilty of an indecency from
among your women, call to witnesses against them four
(witnesses) from among you; then if they bear witness
confine them to the houses until death takes them away or
Allah opens some way for them.
O you who believe! it is not lawful for you that you
should take women as heritage against (their) will, and do
not straiten them m order that you may take part of what you
have given them, unless they are guilty of manifest
indecency, and treat them kindly; then if you hate them, it
may be that you dislike a thing while Allah has placed
abundant good in it.
And all married women except those whom your right hands
possess (this is) Allah's ordinance to you, and lawful for
you are (all women) besides those, provided that you seek
(them) with your property, taking (them) in marriage not
committing fornication. Then as to those whom you profit by,
give them their dowries as appointed; and there is no blame
on you about what you mutually agree after what is
appointed; surely Allah is Knowing, Wise.
And whoever among you has not within his power ampleness
of means to marry free believing women, then (he may marry)
of those whom your right hands possess from among your
believing maidens; and Allah knows best your faith: you are
(sprung) the one from the other; so marry them with the
permission of their masters, and give them their dowries
justly, they being chaste, not fornicating, nor receiving
paramours; and when they are taken in marriage, then if they
are guilty of indecency, they shall suffer half the
punishment which is (inflicted) upon free women. This is for
him among you who fears falling into evil; and that you
abstain is better for you, and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
And do not covet that by which Allah has made some of you
excel others; men shall have the benefit of what they earn
and women shall have the benefit of what they earn; and ask
Allah of His grace; surely Allah knows all things.
Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made
some of them to excel others and because they spend out of
their property; the good women are therefore obedient,
guarding the unseen as Allah has guarded; and (as to) those
on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave
them alone in the sleeping-places and beat them; then if
they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah
is High, Great.
O you who believe! do not go near prayer when you are
Intoxicated until you know (well) what you say, nor when you
are under an obligation to perform a bath-- unless (you are)
travelling on the road-- until you have washed yourselves;
and if you are sick, or on a journey, or one of you come
from the privy or you have touched the women, and you cannot
find water, betake yourselves to pure earth, then wipe your
faces and your hands; surely Allah is Pardoning, Forgiving.
And what reason have you that you should not fight in the
way of Allah and of the weak among the men and the women and
the children, (of) those who say: Our Lord! cause us to go
forth from this town, whose people are oppressors, and give
us from Thee a guardian and give us from Thee a helper.
And they ask you a decision about women. Say: Allah makes
known to you His decision concerning them, and that which is
recited to you in the Book concerning female orphans whom
you do not give what is appointed for them while you desire
to marry them, and concerning the weak among children, and
that you should deal towards orphans with equity; and
whatever good you do, Allah surely knows it.
They ask you for a decision of the law. Say: Allah gives
you a decision concerning the person who has neither parents
nor offspring; if a man dies (and) he has no son and he has
a sister, she shall have half of what he leaves, and he
shall be her heir she has no son; but if there be two
(sisters), they shall have two-thirds of what he leaves; and
if there are brethren, men and women, then the male shall
have the like of the portion of two females; Allah makes
clear to you, lest you err; and Allah knows all things.
From 005.The Food:
5. This day (all) the good things are allowed to you; and
the food of those who have been given the Book is lawful for
you and your food is lawful for them; and the chaste from
among the believing women and the chaste from among those
who have been given the Book before you (are lawful for
you); when you have given them their dowries, taking (them)
in marriage, not fornicating nor taking them for paramours
in secret; and whoever denies faith, his work indeed is of
no account, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the
6. O you who believe! when you rise up to prayer, wash
your faces and your hands as far as the elbows, and wipe
your heads and your feet to the ankles; and if you are under
an obligation to perform a total ablution, then wash
(yourselves) and if you are sick or on a journey, or one of
you come from the privy, or you have touched the women, and
you cannot find water, betake yourselves to pure earth and
wipe your faces and your hands therewith, Allah does not
desire to put on you any difficulty, but He wishes to purify
you and that He may complete His favor on you, so that you
may be grateful.
From 007.The Elevated Places:
127. And the chiefs of Firon's people said: Do you leave
Musa and his people to make mischief in the land and to
forsake you and your gods? He said: We will slay their sons
and spare their women, and surely we are masters over them.
141. And when We delivered you from Firon's people who
subJected you to severe torment, killing your sons and
sparing your women, and in this there was a great trial from
67. The hypocritical men and the hypocritical women are
all alike; they enjoin evil and forbid good and withhold
their hands; they have forsaken Allah, so He has forsaken
them; surely the hypocrites are the transgressors.
68. Allah has promised the hypocritical men and the
hypocritical women and the unbelievers the fire of hell to
abide therein; it is enough for them; and Allah has cursed
them and they shall have lasting punishment.
71. And (as for) the believing men and the believing
women, they are guardians of each other; they enjoin good
and forbid evil and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate,
and obey Allah and His Apostle; (as for) these, Allah will
show mercy to them; surely Allah is Mighty, Wise.
72. Allah has promised to the believing men and the
believing women gardens, beneath which rivers flow, to abide
in them, and goodly dwellings in gardens of perpetual abode;
and best of all is Allah's goodly pleasure; that is the
28. So when he saw his shirt rent from behind, he said:
Surely it is a guile of you women; surely your guile is
30. And women in the city said: The chiefs wife seeks her
slave to yield himself (to her), surely he has affected her
deeply with (his) love; most surely we see her in manifest
50. And the king said: Bring him to me. So when the
messenger came to him, he said: Go back to your lord and ask
him, what is the case of the women who cut their hands;
surely my Lord knows their guile.
6. And when Musa said to his people: Call to mind Allah's
favor to you when He delivered you from Firon's people, who
subjected you to severe torment, and slew your sons and
spared your women; and in this there was a great trial from
From 024.The Light
4. And those who accuse free women then do not bring four
witnesses, flog them, (giving) eighty stripes, and do not
admit any evidence from them ever; and these it is that are
12. Why did not the believing men and the believing
women, when you heard it, think well of their own people,
and say: This is an evident falsehood?
23. Surely those who accuse chaste believing women,
unaware (of the evil), are cursed in this world and the
hereafter, and they shall have a grievous chastisement.
26. Bad women are for bad men and bad men are for bad
women. Good women are for good men and good men are for good
31. And say to the believing women that they cast down
their looks and guard their private parts and do not display
their ornaments except what appears thereof, and let them
wear their head-coverings over their bosoms, and not display
their ornaments except to their husbands or their fathers,
or the fathers of their husbands, or their sons, or the sons
of their husbands, or their brothers, or their brothers'
sons, or their sisters' sons, or their women, or those whom
their right hands possess, or the male servants not having
need (of women), or the children who have not attained
knowledge of what is hidden of women; and let them not
strike their feet so that what they hide of their ornaments
may be known; and turn to Allah all of you, O believers! so
that you may be successful.
60. And (as for) women advanced in years who do not hope
for a marriage, it is no sin for them if they put off their
clothes without displaying their ornaments; and if they
restrain themselves it is better for them; and Allah is
From 027.The Ant:
55. What! do you indeed approach men lustfully rather
than women? Nay, you are a people who act ignorantly.
From 028.The Narrative:
4. Surely Firon exalted himself in the land and made its
people into parties, weakening one party from among them; he
slaughtered their sons and let their women live; surely he
was one of the mischiefmakers.
23. And when he came to the water of Madyan, he found on
it a group of men watering, and he found besides them two
women keeping back (their flocks). He said: What is the
matter with you? They said: We cannot water until the
shepherds take away (their sheep) from the water, and our
father is a very old man.
25. Then one of the two women came to him walking
bashfully. She said: My father invites you that he may give
you the reward of your having watered for us. So when he
came to him and gave to him the account, he said: Fear not,
you are secure from the unjust people.
From 003.The Allies:
32. O wives of the Prophet! you are not like any other of
the women; If you will be on your guard, then be not soft in
(your) speech, lest he in whose heart is a disease yearn;
and speak a good word.
35. Surely the men who submit and the women who submit,
and the believing men and the believing women, and the
obeying men and the obeying women, and the truthful men and
the truthful women, and the patient men and the patient
women and the humble men and the humble women, and the
almsgiving men and the almsgiving women, and the fasting men
and the fasting women, and the men who guard their private
parts and the women who guard, and the men who remember
Allah much and the women who remember-- Allah has prepared
for them forgiveness and a mighty reward.
49. O you who believe! when you marry the believing
women, then divorce them before you touch them, you have in
their case no term which you should reckon; so make some
provision for them and send them forth a goodly sending
52. It is not allowed to you to take women afterwards,
nor that you should change them for other wives, though
their beauty be pleasing to you, except what your right hand
possesses and Allah is Watchful over all things.
55. There is no blame on them in respect of their
fathers, nor their brothers, nor their brothers' sons, nor
their sisters' sons nor their own women, nor of what their
right hands possess; and be careful of (your duty to) Allah;
surely Allah is a witness of all things.
58. And those who speak evil things of the believing men
and the believing women without their having earned (it),
they are guilty indeed of a false accusation and a manifest
59. O Prophet! say to your wives and your daughters and
the women of the believers that they let down upon them
their over-garments; this will be more proper, that they may
be known, and thus they will not be given trouble; and Allah
is Forgiving, Merciful.
73. So Allah will chastise the hypocritical men and the
hypocritical women and the polytheistic men and the
polytheistic women, and Allah will turn (mercifully) to the
believing women, and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
From 040.The Believer:
25. So when he brought to them the truth from Us, they
said: Slay the sons of those who believe with him and keep
their women alive; and the struggle of the unbelievers will
only come to a state of perdition.
19. So know that there is no god but Allah, and, ask
protection for your fault and for the believing men and the
believing women; and Allah knows the place of your returning
and the place of your abiding.
From 048.The Victory:
5. That He may cause the believing men and the believing
women to enter gardens beneath which rivers flow to abide
therein and remove from them their evil; and that is a grand
achievement with Allah
6. And (that) He may punish the hypocritical men and the
hypocritical women, and the polytheistic men and the
polytheistic women, the entertainers of evil thoughts about
Allah. On them is the evil turn, and Allah is wroth with
them and has cursed them and prepared hell for them, and
evil is the resort.
25. It is they who disbelieved and turned you away from
the Sacred Mosque and (turned off) the offering withheld
from arriving at its destined place; and were it not for the
believing men and the believing women, whom, not having
known, you might have trodden down, and thus something
hateful might have afflicted you on their account without
knowledge-- so that Allah may cause to enter into His mercy
whomsoever He pleases; had they been widely separated one
from another, We would surely have punished those who
disbelieved from among them with a painful punishment.
From 057.The Iron:
12. On that day you will see the faithful men and the
faithful women-- their light running before them and on
their right hand-- good news for you today: gardens beneath
which rivers flow, to abide therein, that is the grand
13. On the day when the hypocritical men and the
hypocritical women will say to those who believe: Wait for
us, that we may have light from your light; it shall be
said: Turn back and seek a light. Then separation would be
brought about between them, with a wall having a door in it;
(as for) the inside of it, there shall be mercy in it, and
(as for) the outside of it, before it there shall be
18. Surely (as for) the charitable men and the charitable
women and (those who) set apart for Allah a goodly portion,
it shall be doubled for them and they shall have a noble
From 060.The Examined One:
10. O you who believe! when believing women come to you
flying, then examine them; Allah knows best their faith;
then if you find them to be believing women, do not send
them back to the unbelievers, neither are these (women)
lawful for them, nor are those (men) lawful for them, and
give them what they have spent; and no blame attaches to you
in marrying them when you give them their dowries; and hold
not to the ties of marriage of unbelieving women, and ask
for what you have spent, and kt them ask for what they have
spent. That is Allah's judgment; He judges between you, and
Allah is Knowing, Wise.
12. O Prophet! when believing women come to you giving
you a pledge that they will not associate aught with Allah,
and will not steal, and will not commit fornication, and
will not kill their children, and will not bring a calumny
which they have forged of themselves, and will not disobey
you in what is good, accept their pledge, and ask
forgiveness for them from Allah; surely Allah is Forgiving,
From 065.The Divorce:
O Prophet! when you divorce women, divorce them for~
their prescribed time, and calculate the number of the days
prescribed, and be careful of (your duty to) Allah, your
Lord. Do not drive them out of their houses, nor should they
themselves go forth, unless they commit an open indecency;
and these are the limits of Allah, and whoever goes beyond
the limits of Allah, he indeed does injustice to his own
soul. You do not know that Allah may after that bring about
reunion. And (as for) those of your women who have despaired
of menstruation, if you have a doubt, their prescribed time
shall be three months, and of those too who have not had
their courses; and (as for) the pregnant women, their
prescribed time is that they lay down their burden; and
whoever is careful of (his duty to) Allah He will make easy
for him his affair.
28. My Lord! forgive me and my parents and him who enters
my house believing, and the believing men and the believing
women; and do not increase the unjust in aught but
From 085.The Mansions Of The Stars:
10. Surely (as for) those who persecute the believing men
and the believing women, then do not repent, they shall have
the chastisement of hell, and they shall have the
chastisement of burning.
