The Divorced Woman has the Right to Decent Accommodations, and what is Reasonable Print E-mail

Allah the Exalted orders His faithful servants that when one of them divorces his wife, he should provide housing for her until the end of her `Iddah period,

﴿أَسْكِنُوهُنَّ مِنْ حَيْثُ سَكَنتُم﴾

(Lodge them where you dwell,) means, with you,

﴿مِّن وُجْدِكُمْ﴾

(according to what you have,) Ibn `Abbas, Mujahid and several others said, it refers to "Your ability.'' Qatadah said, "If you can only afford to accommodate her in a corner of your house, then do so.''
