Imaam Al-Manaawee said in At-Tayseer:

(Verily, the blessings bestowed upon the woman...): (meaning), from her
blessings.

(...her engagement is easy...): ِ خ ط ةب with a Kasrah, (meaning), that it is easy for the
man seeking her hand in marriage to ask those who are responsible for her their
permission to marry her; and that their answer is received and/or attained with ease,
without any hesitation, (severing of the process and without) conditions or
stipulations.

(...her dowry is easy...): (meaning), there is no hardship for the man who seeks her
hand in marriage to come up with and find (a dowry) which is outside of his basic
needs, (meaning that it will not take away from his basic needs.)

(...and her womb is easy.): (meaning) for children, so she gets pregnant quickly and
easily and has a lot of off-spring.
