Pro ty z vašich žen, jež již nemají naději na menstruaci, ale jste-li přesto na pochybách, nechť jsou čekací lhůtou tři měsíce; a stejně platí i pro ty, které ještě menstruaci neměly. Pro ty, jež jsou těhotné, skončí čekací lhůta tehdy, když porodí. A kdo je bohabojný, tomu Bůh věc jeho ulehčí.
And [as for] those of your women who (read allā’ī or allā’i in both instances) no longer expect to menstruate, if you have any doubts, about their waiting period, their prescribed [waiting] period shall be three months, and [also for] those who have not yet menstruated, because of their young age, their period shall [also] be three months — both cases apply to other than those whose spouses have died; for these [latter] their period is prescribed in the verse: they shall wait by themselves for four months and ten [days] [Q. 2:234]. And those who are pregnant, their term, the conclusion of their prescribed [waiting] period if divorced or if their spouses be dead, shall be when they deliver. And whoever fears God, He will make matters ease for him, in this world and in the Hereafter.
