64 verses, revealed in Medina after Exodus (Al-Hashr) before Pilgrimage (Al-Hajj)
In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
۞ (Here is) a surah which We have revealed and enjoined, and wherein We have revealed plain tokens, that haply ye may take heed. (1) The adulteress and the adulterer: scourge each one of the twain with a hundred stripes. And let not tenderness rake hold of you in regarad to the twain in the law of Allah, if ye have come to believe in Allah and the Last Day. And let witness this torment a band of the believers. (2) The fornicator shall marry none but a fornicatress or an idolatress, and the fornicatress -- none shall marry her but a fornicator or an idolator; that is forbidden to 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 as for those who accuse their own wives [of adultery,] but have no witnesses except themselves, let each of these [accusers] call God four times to witness that he is indeed telling the truth, (6) and a fifth time, that the curse of God shall be upon him, if he should be of the liars. (7) The woman's punishment can be averted if she swears four times by God as testimony that her husband is a liar, (8) Her fifth oath being that the curse of God be on her if her husband should be speaking the truth. (9) Had it not been for God's favors and mercy upon you (your life would have been in chaos). God accepts repentance and He is All-wise. (10)
