The Divorced Woman has the Right to Decent Accommodations, and what is Reasonable

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.''
