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 fornicatress and the fornicator -- scourge each one of them a hundred stripes, and in the matter of God's religion let no tenderness for them seize you if you believe in God and the Last Day; and let a party of the believers witness their chastisement. (2) A man guilty of adultery (or fornication) shall not marry any but the woman guilty of the same or a mushrik woman, and none shall marry a woman guilty of adultery (or fornication) but the man guilty of the same or a mushrik man: such marriages are forbidden to true believers. (3) Those who accuse chaste women, and cannot produce four witnesses, you shall lash them with eighty lashes. And never accept their testimony, for they are evildoers, (4) except that of those who afterwards repent and reform themselves; God is All-forgiving and All-merciful. (5) And for those who launch a charge against their spouses, and have (in support) no evidence but their own,- their solitary evidence (can be received) if they bear witness four times (with an oath) by Allah that they are solemnly telling the truth; (6) and the fifth time, that God's curse may be upon him if he is telling a lie. (7) And the punishment shall be averted from the woman if she bears the testimony four times by the name of Allah, that the man is a liar. (8) and, a fifth time that God's wrath will be upon her if he is telling 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)
