This article aims to reveal the primary messages in the Quran (2: 222) by employing a ma’na-cum-maghza hermeneutic approach. This descriptive-analytic study inspired by a particular interpretation of the term adha in the verse; as in some classical literature, it was interpreted as something dirty, disgusting, and ill. Women seem to be seen as an item rather than people. This product of misogynistic and euphemistic interpretation is the author’s unease. Even so, in its development after going through an in-depth search using reference sources from classical and modern commentaries and studies through analysis of linguistic aspects and aspects of micro and macro historical contexts, QUR’AN (2:222) has two main messages, namely upholding the values of humanism and sex education to all married couples.
