The Ethical Orientations of Divorce Verses in the Quran
Fahimeh Gorgi, Majid Ma’aref 1
Abstract:   (264 Views)
The existence of morally delicate points in the verses of the Quran is indicative of the importance of obligation to moral virtues to God. In a passing look, the verses of the revealed prescripts may seem to be purely legal and punitive. However, their closer examination shows that they fully match moral standards. Among the most prominent examples of the ethical orientations of the holy Quran are the verses related to the difficult and unfavorable conditions of relationships between individuals such as jihad, retaliation and divorce. In this article, we seek to examine where fiqh and ethics meet in the prescripts and divorce verses. The subject of divorce has been mentioned in numerous verses in al-Baqarah, al-Talaq, al-Nisa, al-Ahzab. God has emphasized adherence to moral standards in all the interactions of couples. In todaychr('39')s society, the marital life style and separation style of people do not conform to Sharichr('39')ah laws. Careful observance of the Islamic prescripts and delicate ethical considerations related to the subject of divorce can greatly reconcile and reunite couples. It needs to be noted that none of the current translations, commentaries and laws have fully taken these delicate ethical considerations into account. This article deals with the prominent ethical points of the revealed divorce prescripts related to eddeh, giving back nafaqah (alimony), giving gifts, paying for breastfeeding, etc.
Keywords: the Quran, ethics, divorce verses, nafaqah (alimony), eddeh (legal period of sexual withdrawal after divorce), mata’ (provision).
