This surah speaks about how a husband and wife should seperate, both temporarily and possibly permanently. The separation is supposed to be approximately 3 months after which the couple decides what to do. The purpose of this time is to reevaluate the relationship and to verify if the lady is expecting a baby or not.
The surah emphasizes that it is not permitted to throw out vulnerable ladies especially if they are expecting a child. When divorce occurs it is to be done slowly so that the lady is protected and there is time to arrange things accordingly.
Discussion question: when you are not getting along with someone does it help to take a break and see them later? If a lady is expecting a baby is it important to support and protect her?
