64 verses, revealed in Medina after Exodus (Al-Hashr) before Pilgrimage (Al-Hajj)
In the name of God, The Most Gracious, The Dispenser of Grace
۞ This is a chapter which We have revealed and which We have made obligatory; We have sent down clear revelations in it, so that you may take heed. (1) The adulteress and adulterer should be flogged a hundred lashes each, and no pity for them should deter you from the law of God, if you believe in God and the Last Day; and the punishment should be witnessed by a body of believers. (2) The adulterer shall not marry except an adulteress or a polytheist woman, and none shall marry an adulteress except an adulterer or a polytheist; and this is forbidden for the believers. (3) And those who accuse chaste women and then do not produce four witnesses - lash them with eighty lashes and do not accept from them testimony ever after. And those are the defiantly disobedient, (4) Except for those who repent thereafter and reform, for indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. (5) And those who accuse their wives and have no witnesses except themselves, let them testify by swearing by Allah four times that he is of the truthful, (6) And the fifth (time) that the curse of Allah be on him if he is one of the liars. (7) But [as for the wife, all] chastisement shall be averted from her by her calling God four times to witness that he is indeed telling a lie, (8) and, a fifth time that God's wrath will be upon her if he is telling the truth. (9) AND WERE it not for God's favour upon you, [O man,] and His grace, and that God is a wise acceptor of repentance...! (10)
