Dr. Mustafa Khattab ˹This is˺ a sûrah which We have revealed and made ˹its rulings˺ obligatory, and revealed in it clear commandments so that you may be mindful.

Dr. Mustafa Khattab As for female and male fornicators, give each of them one hundred lashes,1 and do not let pity for them make you lenient in ˹enforcing˺ the law of Allah, if you ˹truly˺ believe in Allah and the Last Day. And let a number of believers witness their punishment.

Dr. Mustafa Khattab A male fornicator would only marry a female fornicator or idolatress. And a female fornicator would only be married to a fornicator or idolater. This is ˹all˺ forbidden to the believers.1

Dr. Mustafa Khattab Those who accuse chaste women ˹of adultery˺ and fail to produce four witnesses, give them eighty lashes ˹each˺. And do not ever accept any testimony from them—for they are indeed the rebellious—

Dr. Mustafa Khattab except those who repent afterwards and mend their ways, then surely Allah is All-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

Dr. Mustafa Khattab And those who accuse their wives ˹of adultery˺ but have no witness except themselves, the accuser must testify,1 swearing four times by Allah that he is telling the truth,

Dr. Mustafa Khattab and a fifth oath that Allah may condemn him if he is lying.

Dr. Mustafa Khattab For her to be spared the punishment, she must swear four times by Allah that he is telling a lie,

Dr. Mustafa Khattab and a fifth oath that Allah may be displeased with her if he is telling the truth.1

Dr. Mustafa Khattab ˹You would have suffered,˺ had it not been for Allah’s grace and mercy upon you, and had Allah not been Accepting of Repentance, All-Wise.
