And if they testify, confine the guilty women to houses until death takes them or Allah ordains for them [another] way. 15 If two among you commit it punish them both.

You are forbidden to inherit women against their will, and you should not treat them with harshness, that you may take away part of the Mahr you have given them, unless they commit open illegal sexual intercourse. And live with them honourably. If you dislike them, it may be that you dislike a thing and Allah brings through it a great deal of good. 19 If you want to divorce a woman so that you can marry another, do not take back the dowry which you had paid even if what you paid was a large amount of gold.

Verily it hath been an indecency and an abomination and an evil way: 22
