الزَّانِيَةُ وَالزَّانِي فَاجْلِدُوا كُلَّ وَاحِدٍ مِنْهُمَا مِائَةَ جَلْدَةٍ ۖ وَلَا تَأْخُذْكُمْ بِهِمَا رَأْفَةٌ فِي دِينِ اللَّهِ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ تُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ ۖ وَلْيَشْهَدْ عَذَابَهُمَا طَائِفَةٌ مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ ﴿٢﴾
٢ - بدکاری کرنے والی عورت اور بدکاری کرنے والا مرد (جب ان کی بدکاری ثابت ہوجائے تو) دونوں میں سے ہر ایک کو سو درے مارو۔ اور اگر تم خدا اور روز آخرت پر ایمان رکھتے ہو تو شرع خدا (کے حکم) میں تمہیں ان پر ہرگز ترس نہ آئے۔ اور چاہیئے کہ ان کی سزا کے وقت مسلمانوں کی ایک جماعت بھی موجود ہو .
[24:2] The [unmarried] woman or [unmarried] man found guilty of sexual intercourse - lash each one of them with a hundred lashes, and do not be taken by pity for them in the religion of Allah, if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. And let a group of the believers witness their punishment.
