Some twisted people tried to find grounds to their deeds in Quran and brought forward untrue provisions and confused the minds of people. Of course some of them may make mistakes. Most of the glossators are men. Some of them claimed that pregnant women should not get out of the house and by making slight additions that change the meanings they created a man centralized system. Quran that mentions about all details warned the Muslims against such people in Ali Imran Surah 78.verse. Some of them just seem like they are reading this book, so that they make you think so. They claim that some things are meant by Allah although this is not the truth. They lie to Allah although they very well know that what they say is not true. (Ali İmran Surah, 78)
Talak Surah 4th verse is one of those verses which tends to confuse the minds of the people as a result of adding or changing some words in the verse deliberately. Let us check the traditional translation of this verse.
“The period is 3 months for those women who do not menstruate anymore and those who did not menstruate yet. The waiting period for pregnant women is until they give birth. Whoever fears Allah, Allah will help him in his endeavours.” (Talak Surah, 4) The word yet has been added to the verse since it is not found in the original version. This small addition changes the meaning completely. “did not menstruate yet” means just one thing. Children who are not adolescents yet! But the situation is different.
In order to say did not menstruate yet the term “ellaaiii lemma yahıdne” should be mentioned in the verse. But it says “lem yahıdne” in the verse.
Lem: Means never happened and never will happen.
Lemma: Means did not happen yet but will happen.
Those twisted people have taken all of the precautions in order to prevent people from understanding Quran truly. “You cannot understand Quran, religious men can.”, “Do not read Quran in Turkish. Quran was sent in Arabic, you should read it in its original language” are what they say. You cannot read Quran without ablution, you should keep it over your belly, you should cover your head while reading Quran… they prevented people from reading Quran by these words although they did not have any scientific evidences. They made people put Quran in covers and hang them on the walls just for the sake of respect. And those people who did not have the chance to read Quran kept on listening to those people who claim to be religious men… The people started to believe in their comments and opposed you even if you brought to them scientific evidences. Allah tells about the situation of such people in Bakara 70;
Whenever you tell them: “Obey what Allah sent you” they say: “No we will obey our ancestors and what they taught us” And what if their ancestors were not wise and did not learn the truth? (Bakara Surah, 170) let us go on checking Talak Surah 4th verse. It says in the verse that the waiting period for women in menopause is 3 months. Why waiting for 3 months? To learn if the woman is pregnant or no. Can the child who do not menstruate be pregnant? No. Then no need to wait for 3 months too. The pregnant woman does not menstruate. But it takes some time to understand that she is pregnant. The waiting period for these women is 3 months. Those who are pregnants wait until they give birth. The term “vellai lem yahidne” which is translated as women who do not menstruate is called medically “sekonder amenore”. It means women who have problems in menstruating normally and do not menstruate for three months period due to their physical problem. The term “Nisa” mentioned in the verse is used for mature women. If the person who did not menstruate was a child then the terms” Vildan, Veled, Benat…” would be used. But the term “Nisa” which means mature women is used in the verse. The true translation is as follows.
“If you hesitate about the women who are in their menopause period and do not menstruate, their waiting period is three months. The period is same for those who do not menstruate too. The waiting period for the pregnant women is until they give birth. Allah helps whoever fears him and respects.” (Talak, 4)
Result: The age for marriage is mentioned in Nisa Surah 6th verse. “try the orphans until the age of marriage; if you see that they are mature enough, immediately give them their wealth…” (Nisa Surah, 6) If you read the verse carefully, it says try the orphans until the age of marriage; if you see that they are mature enough, immediately give them their wealth. The dowry is the value given by the men to the women when getting married in Islamic laws. The dowry is given to the woman not to her family. According to the verse above the age of giving the wealth to the orphan is the age of maturity. So the woman who gets dowry should be mature enough to control it. Beside the term “rüşd” is used in the verse both for women and men. This term means the ability of finding the right way. A small child cannot find the way home. So the age of marriage in Quran complies with the age of marriage in the civil law. Claiming the contrary is perversion. Nobody should use Quran as evidence for his perversion!
