لِّلَّذِينَ يُؤْلُونَ مِن نِّسَائِهِمْ تَرَبُّصُ أَرْبَعَةِ أَشْهُرٍ

“Those who take oaths (not to cohabit) with their wives (for four months or more) should wait for four months (during which time the husband may either break this oath and pay kaffaarah or be divorced from her).” (Surah Baqarah v226)

The husband takes an oath, “I swear by Allah that I will not have relations with you for four months.” The rule with regards to this is that if he does not engage in relations with her for four months, then talaaqul baa’in will take place (i.e. the nikaah will terminate, thus without remarrying they cannot live as husband and wife). However if the husband breaks his oath and has relations with his wife within four months, then a divorce will not take place. He will nevertheless have to pay the kaffaarah for breaking his oath.

نِسَاؤُكُمْ حَرْثٌ لَّكُمْ فَأْتُوا حَرْثَكُمْ أَنَّى شِئْتُمْ

“Your women are your fields ( where your seeds are planted), so approach your tilling fields as you desire ( from any direction as long as the husband  enters the front passage only, so that children can be conceived ).” (Surah Baqarah v223)

The reference to enter one’s tillage denotes that the woman may only be entered from that passage which will serve to produce children, since she would otherwise not be a productive field. Only a foolish farmer will waste his seeds in an area that is non productive. Living in a shameless society today, immoral and disgusting ways of satisfying man’s carnal desires have become acceptable and the norm of the day. It is only Islam that protects and stops us from the forbidden and shameless anal and oral sex.

“The month of Ramadaan is the month in which the Quraan was revealed as guidance for mankind, and as clear signs that show the right way and distinguish between right and wrong.” (Surah Baqarah, v185)

Allah Ta’ala mentions another speciality of Ramadaan – the revelation of the Quraan Majeed. On the night of Qadr, the entire Quraan Majeed was revealed at once from the Lowhul Mahfooz (preserved tablet) to the sky above the earth.
