64 verses, revealed in Medina after Exodus (Al-Hashr) before Pilgrimage (Al-Hajj)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
۞ [This is] a surah which We have sent down and made [that within it] obligatory and revealed therein verses of clear evidence that you might remember. (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 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 do not bring four witnesses to testify punish them with eighty lashes and do not ever accept their testimony; and it is they who are the wicked. (4) Except those who repent after this and act aright, for surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. (5) Those who accuse their wives and do not have any witnesses except themselves, should swear four times in the name of God, the testimony of each such person being that he is speaking the truth, (6) And yet a fifth, invoking the curse of Allah on him if he is of those who lie. (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 (oath) should be that she solemnly invokes the wrath of Allah on herself if (her accuser) is telling the truth. (9) And were it not for Allah's grace upon you and His mercy-- and that Allah is Oft-returning (to mercy), Wise! (10)
