64 verses, revealed in Medina after Exodus (Al-Hashr) before Pilgrimage (Al-Hajj)
In the name of Allah, most benevolent, ever-merciful
۞ 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 weddeth not but an adulteress or an associatoress: and the adulteress! none weddeth her save an adulterer or an associator; and that is forbidden unto the believers. (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) Save those who afterward repent and make amends. (For such) lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. (5) Those who accuse their spouses of committing adultery but have no witness except themselves, should testify four times saying, "God is my witness that I am telling the truth". (6) And (swear) a fifth time that if he tell a lie the curse of God be on him. (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 a fifth time, that the wrath of God shall be upon her, if he should be 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)
