Allah - beginning with the name of - the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

[Nisa 4:1] O mankind! Fear your Lord Who created you from a single soul and from it created its spouse and from them both has spread the multitude of men and women; fear Allah in Whose name you claim (your rights from one another) and be mindful of your blood relations; indeed Allah is always seeing you.


[Nisa 4:2] And give the orphans their wealth and do not exchange the pure for the foul; and do not devour (or use up) their wealth, mixing it with your own; this is indeed a great sin.


[Nisa 4:3] And if you fear that you will not be just towards orphan girls, marry the women whom you like - two at a time, or three or four; then if you fear that you cannot keep two women equally then marry only one or the bondwomen you own; this is closer to your not doing injustice.


[Nisa 4:4] And give the women their bridal money willingly; then if they willingly give you a part of it, eat (use) it with joy and fruition.


[Nisa 4:5] And do not give the foolish their wealth which is in your custody - those for whom Allah has put you in charge to maintain (look after) - and feed and clothe them from it, and speak kindly to them.


[Nisa 4:6] And test the orphans till they are fit to get married (reach full age); then if you find them of proper judgement, hand over their wealth to them; and do not devour it by spending excessively and hastily, fearing that they will grow up; and whoever is not in need must abstain; and whoever is needy may use from it in a reasonable measure; and when you hand over their wealth to them, get witnesses over them; and Allah is Sufficient to take account.
