As-salaam wa-alaikum, brothers and sisters. 

Today's selection is from Surah 4, An-Nisâ or the Women, verses 24-42. These verses continue from the previous set, prohibited and permitted marriages, including marrying slave girls. Next is a brief mention of respecting one another's property rights and a warning to avoid heinous sins and jealousy. Men are declared as the protectors of women and rules of arbitration between family members are established. Lastly there is a discussion of the rights of people such as orphans and the needy, and how the other Messengers of God will be brought forth on the Day of Judgment.

I would highly recommend looking up the expert commentary for these passages as some of it will be controversial to a modern ear.
