64 verses, revealed in Medina after Exodus (Al-Hashr) before Pilgrimage (Al-Hajj)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
۞ A sura which We have sent down and which We have ordained in it have We sent down Clear Signs, in order that ye may receive admonition. (1) You shall lash the fornicatress and the fornicator each with a hundred lashes. In the religion of Allah, let no tenderness for them seize you if you believe in Allah and the Last Day; and let their punishment be witnessed by a party of believers. (2) Let no man guilty of adultery or fornication marry and but a woman similarly guilty, or an Unbeliever: nor let any but such a man or an Unbeliever marry such a woman: to the Believers such a thing is forbidden. (3) And those who cast it up on women in wedlock, and then bring not four witnesses, scourge them with eighty stripes, and do not accept any testimony of theirs ever; those -- they are the ungodly, (4) excepting [from this interdict] only those who afterwards repent and made amends: for, behold, God is much forgiving, a dispenser of grace. (5) And those who accuse their wives and do not have witnesses except their own statements for such the testimony is that he bear the testimony four times by the name of Allah that he is truthful. (6) and a fifth time, that the curse of God shall be upon him, if he should be of the liars. (7) And the punishment shall be averted from the woman if she bears the testimony four times by the name of Allah, that the man is a liar. (8) On the fifth time she should say, "Let the curse of God be upon me if what he says is true." (9) Were it not for God's grace and His mercy upon you, [you would have come to grief] and God is wise, acceptor of repentance. (10)
