"Divorce" (Arabic: الطلاق, aṭ-talāq) is the 65th chapter of the Qur'an with 12 verses (ayat). At-Talaq is not only the name of this Surah but also the title of its subject matter, as it contains commandments about Talaq (divorce) itself. Abdullah ibn Masud (died c.653) reportedly described it as the shorter surah An-Nisa. The surah also defines the time period of mourning (iddah) to be three menstruation periods. For pre-menarche girls and for post-menopause women - three months. In case of pregnancy, after the delivery of the child.

After addressing the topic of divorce and a number of other resulting family issues in first 7 verses, the surah then strongly urges people to observe God’s regulations and guidance, and reminded the fate of earlier disobedient people that the apostate and disobedient were chastised for their sin. The 11th verse describes the required attitude of the true believers that they exhort to faith in messenger and the regarding bounties. Finally God’s power and knowledge are emphasized at the end.
