64 verses, revealed in Medina after Exodus (Al-Hashr) before Pilgrimage (Al-Hajj)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
۞ A sura that We have sent down and appointed; and We have sent down in it signs, clear signs, that haply 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 can marry no one but an adulteress or his partner (in the act), and the adulteress cannot marry any but an adulterer or her partner (in the act). This is forbidden the believers, (3) Those who defame chaste women and do not bring four witnesses should be punished with eighty lashes, and their testimony should not be accepted afterwards, for they are profligates, (4) Excepting those who thereafter shall repent and make amends. Verily Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. (5) And those who cast it up on their wives having no witnesses except themselves, the testimony of one of them shall be to testify by God four times that he is of the truthful, (6) They should say on the fifth time, "Let God's curse be upon me if I am a liar". (7) The wife shall receive no punishment, if she bears witness four times in the name of God that her husband has lied (8) And the fifth (time) that the wrath of Allah be on her if he is one of the truthful. (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)
