قَدۡ سَمِعَ ٱللَّهُ قَوۡلَ ٱلَّتِي تُجَٰدِلُكَ فِي زَوۡجِهَا وَتَشۡتَكِيٓ إِلَى ٱللَّهِ وَٱللَّهُ يَسۡمَعُ تَحَاوُرَكُمَآۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ سَمِيعُۢ بَصِيرٌ


       Indeed, Allah has heard the conversation of a lady [Khaulah bint Tha’labah (ؓ)] who argued with you [O Muhammad (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him)!] concerning her husband [Aus bin Samit (ؓ)] and she was complaining to Allah (about her distress) too. And Allah was hearing the contention of both of you. Indeed, Allah is All-Hearer, All-Seer.


The reason for descending the verse

‘A’isha the mother of the believers said, “Glory be to Him Whose hearing encompass all things; I could hear the speech of Khawlah bint Tha‘labah, even though not in full, while she was complaining about her husband to the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w). She said, ‘He has worn out my youth and I let him physically enjoy me but when I grew older and could no longer bear children, he put me away, saying that I am as his mother. O Allah, I complain to you’. She did not move from her position until Jibril came down with this verse.”(Al-Wahidi,Reasons of Revelation and As-Suyuti in Lubab)
