Khawlah bint Tha'labah (Arabic: خولة بنت ثعلبة‎) was one of the female companions of Muhammad. She is mentioned in the Quran in the 58th chapter. Zihar was accepted as a form of divorce during pre-Islamic times and one day her husband Aous bin As-Samit divorced her by this method. Soon after, it was revealed in the 58th chapter, verse 1 as:[1][2]

قَدْ سَمِعَ اللَّهُ قَوْلَ الَّتِي تُجَادِلُكَ فِي زَوْجِهَا وَتَشْتَكِي إِلَى اللَّهِ وَاللَّهُ يَسْمَعُ تَحَاوُرَكُمَا إِنَّ اللَّهَ سَمِيعٌ بَصِيرٌ

God has surely heard the words of her who pleaded with you against her husband and made her plaint to God. God has heard what you two said to each other. Surely God hears all and observes all.

—الآيات الأولى من سورة المجادلة Al-Mujadila, verse 1
