The sura begins with the prayer of Prophet Ibrahim (pbuh). Its title comes from verse 10 which deals with women converts who were migrating to Makka. They had professed faith but their spouses were not believers so after investigation they were not to be sent to their husbands who demanded their return. The directive is also to recompense the husbands for what they had spent so they could release their wives.
