In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
۞ This is a Surah which We have sent down and We have made it mandatory, and We have sent down clear Commandments in it so that you may learn lessons. (1) The woman and the man guilty of illegal sexual intercourse, flog each of them with a hundred stripes. Let not pity withhold you in their case, in a punishment prescribed by Allah, if you believe in Allah and the Last Day. And let a party of the believers witness their punishment. (This punishment is for unmarried persons guilty of the above crime but if married persons commit it, the punishment is to stone them to death, according to Allah's Law). (2) The adulterer shall marry only an adulteress or a polytheist woman, and an adulteress shall marry only an adulterer or a polytheist man; such marriages are forbidden for believers. (3) As for those persons who charge chaste women with false accusations but do not produce four witnesses, flog them with eighty stripes and never accept their evidence afterwards, for they themselves are transgressors, (4) Excepting those who thereafter shall repent and make amends. Verily Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. (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) Then the fifth time he shall declare that Allah's curse be upon him if he be false (in his charge). (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 the fifth (testimony) should be that the Wrath of Allah be upon her if he (her husband) speaks the truth. (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)
