Na mtakapo wapa wanawake t'alaka, nao wakafikia kumaliza eda yao, basi warejeeni kwa wema au waachilieni kwa wema. Wala msiwarejee kwa kuwadhuru mkafanya uadui. Na atakaye fanya hivyo, amejidhulumu nafsi yake. Wala msizichukulie Aya za Mwenyezi Mungu kwa maskhara. Na kumbukeni neema ya Mwenyezi Mungu juu yenu, na aliyo kuteremshieni katika Kitabu na hikima anacho kuonyeni kwacho. Na mcheni Mwenyezi Mungu, na jueni kwamba hakika Mwenyezi Mungu ni Mjuzi wa kila kitu.
And when you divorce women and they have [nearly] fulfilled their term, either retain them according to acceptable terms or release them according to acceptable terms, and do not keep them, intending harm, to transgress [against them]. And whoever does that has certainly wronged himself. And do not take the verses of Allah in jest. And remember the favor of Allah upon you and what has been revealed to you of the Book and wisdom by which He instructs you. And fear Allah and know that Allah is Knowing of all things. (Qur'an 2:231)
Ijumaa Njema Wandugu.
