Translation

O ye who believe! When ye marry believing women, and then divorce them before ye have touched them, no period of 'Iddat have ye to count in respect of them: so give them a present. And set them free in a handsome manner.

Tafsir

O you who believe if you marry believing women and then divorce them before you have touched them (read tamassoohunna or tumaasoohunna) that is, before you have copulated with them, there shall be no [waiting] period for you to reckon against them, [no] waiting period [needed to preclude pregnancy] or otherwise. But provide for them, give them what they can use for [securing] comforts, in cases where no dowry has been fixed for them; otherwise theirs is to retain half of what was fixed, but no more - this is what Ibn 'Abbaas said and it is [the opinion] followed by al-Shaafi'ee'; and release them in a gracious manner, leave them be without [the intention to cause them any] harm.
