64 verses, revealed in Medina after Exodus (Al-Hashr) before Pilgrimage (Al-Hajj)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
۞ This is a chapter which We have sent down and appointed; and in it We have sent down clear verses in order that you will remember. (1) Flog the fornicatress and the fornicator with a hundred lashes each. Let there be no reluctance in enforcing the laws of God, if you have faith in God and the Day of Judgment. Let it take place in the presence of a group of believers. (2) The adulterer shall not marry save an adulteress or an idolatress, and the adulteress none shall marry save an adulterer or an idolater. All that is forbidden unto believers. (3) And those who accuse free women then do not bring four witnesses, flog them, (giving) eighty stripes, and do not admit any evidence from them ever; and these it is that are the transgressors, (4) save those who afterwards repent and make amends, for truly God is forgiving and merciful. (5) Those who accuse their wives and do not have any witnesses except themselves, should swear four times in the name of God, the testimony of each such person being that he is speaking the truth, (6) And the fifth, that the curse of Allah be upon him if he be of the liars. (7) And it will revert the chastisement from her if she testifieth by Allah four times that verily he is of the liars. (8) And a fifth (time) that the wrath of Allah be upon her if he speaketh truth. (9) (This would not have been possible) if the grace and benevolence of God were not upon you; but God is compassionate and wise. (10)
