Quran is the primary source for recognition of religious teachings, jurisprudence decrees and social and personal relationships and at the same time, it is the perfect source. Quran is definite in terms of issuance and fundamentalists considered authority for the Quranic verses. Major part of Quranic verses indicate principles of Islam doctrine, for example verses about the God, hereafter, heaven and hell, reward and punishment indicate beliefs. Another part of verses express the ethical aspect and relationships among Muslims. For example, verses related to the forgiveness, avoiding lie, gossip and hypocrisy and the importance of piety are Quranic ethical verses. Third part of the verses which are less than two other parts are verses related to the decrees. Nisa is one of juridical Sura in the Quran and it has numerous juridical decrees in itself. It is the fourth Sura of Quran. In fact, the major theme of this Sura is legislation. It seems that one point that should be considered in the inference and extraction of decree verses is the abrogating and abrogated knowledge of verses and whether they revealed in the Mecca or Medina. Otherwise, abrogated verses may use as the juridical decree for inference and a false decree issues. This research seeks to study the juridical decrees of Nisa Sura.
