64 verses, revealed in Medina after Exodus (Al-Hashr) before Pilgrimage (Al-Hajj)
In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
۞ This is a chapter which We have sent down and appointed; and in it We have sent down clear verses in order that you will 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 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) 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) 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) They should say on the fifth time, "Let God's curse be upon me if I am a liar". (7) The spouse will be acquitted of the punishment if she challenges his testimony by saying four times, "God is my witness that he is a liar". (8) And the fifth that Allah's wrath be upon her if he is of the truthtellers. (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)
