A chapter which We have sent down, and which We have ordained, and through which We have sent down clear signs, that you may be mindful,

The adulterer shall not marry any but an adulteress or a polytheist (woman). And the adulteress, none shall marry her except an adulterer or a polytheist, and that is forbidden to the believers.
And those who accuse chaste women then do not bring four witnesses, flog them (with) eighty stripes and do not accept their testimony forever, and those are the persons who exceed the limits,
except those who repent after that and mend (themselves),then Allah is certainly Protectively Forgiving, Merciful.

and the fifth (time) that Allah's curse be on him if he is of those who lie.
And it shall turn off the punishment from her if she testifies (and) bears witness (by swearing) four times by Allah that he is certainly of those who lie,
and the fifth (time), that Allah's anger be upon her if he is of those who are truthful.

Those who came up with the devised falsehood are certainly a group from among you. Do not think that it is harmful for you, no, it is good for you. For every man among them, is that which he has earned of the sin, and he among them who is responsible to a greater extent (regarding devising the falsehood), for him there is a great punishment.
Why did the believing men and the believing women, on hearing the (devised falsehood), not have good thoughts in their souls (minds) and say, "This is clearly a devised falsehood?"
Why did they not come up with four witnesses over it (if they were speaking the truth)? So when they did not come with witnesses, then they are the liars before Allah.
And had the grace of Allah not been on you with His mercy in this world and the hereafter, a great punishment would (have afflicted you because of the talk you indulged in,
when you were speaking (about) it with your tongues and saying with your mouths that about which you had no knowledge and you thought it to be an easy (matter) but with Allah it was great.
And when you heard it, why did you not say, "It is not (suitable) for us to talk about this, glory be to You (Allah), this is a great false charge?"
Allah admonishes you that you should never return to the like of it, if you are believers.
And Allah makes clear to you the signs and Allah is Knowing, Wise.
For those who love that indecent things should spread among those who believe, there will certainly be a painful punishment in this world and the hereafter, and Allah knows while you do not know.

Those who accuse chaste innocent believing women, they are certainly cursed in this world and the hereafter and for them there will be a great punishment (on)
the day their tongues and their hands and their feet will bear witness against them as to that which they used to do.

Bad women are for bad men and bad men are for bad women, and good women are for good men and good men are for good women, they are free from that which they say. For them is protective forgiveness and an honourable provision. (R 3)
O you who believe! do not enter houses other than your own houses until you have asked for permission and greeted by invoking peace on the people living in them, that is better for you that you may be mindful.
And if you do not find anyone therein then do not enter them until permission is given to you, and if it is said to you, "Go back," then go back, that is purer for you, and Allah is the Knower of that which you do.
There is no sin on you if you enter non residential buildings wherein your provision (is stored), and Allah knows that which you manifest and that which you hide.
Say to the believing men that they should keep their looks down and guard their private parts, that is purer for them. Allah is certainly informed of that which they do.

And turn to Allah all together, O believers! that you may be made successful.
And arrange for the marriage of those among you who are single and the righteous among your male and female slaves (servants). If they are in poverty Allah will enrich them out of His grace and Allah is Omnipresent (Ample-giving), Knowing.

And We have sent down to you clear signs and the example of those who have passed away before you and an admonition for those who guard (against evil). (R 4)
Allah is the light of the skies and the earth. The likeness of His light is like an enclosure with one opening in which there is a lamp, the lamp is in a glass, the glass is as if it were a brilliant shining planet,(the lamp) is lit from a blessed olive tree, neither eastern nor western, whose oil is almost inflammable although fire has not (even) touched it, light upon light, Allah guides to His light whom He wills and Allah sets forth similitude’s for mankind and Allah is the Knower of everything.
(His light is) in houses which Allah has ordered to be elevated and in which His name is remembered, He is glorified therein in the mornings and the evenings,
(by) men whom neither commerce nor trade diverts from the remembrance of Allah and the establishment of worship (salat) and giving of charity (zakat), they fear the day on which the hearts and the eyes will be overturned,
(and hope) that Allah will reward them with (something) better than that which they did and increase their (reward) out of His grace; and Allah provides without measure to whom He wills.
And (as for) those who do not believe, their deeds will be like a mirage in the desert, which the thirsty person supposes to be water until when he comes to it and finds it to be nothing, and finds Allah with him (to take his account of deeds), so He pays in full to him that which is due to him and Allah is Quick in (settling) the account.
Or like darkness in the deep sea, there covers him a wave, above which is another wave above which is a cloud, (layers of) darkness one above another, when he takes out his hand he is almost unable to see it; and he for whom Allah does not assign light, for him then, there is no light. (R 5)

And Allah is the Knower of that which they do. obeying Allah's orders). And Allah is the Knower of that which they do.
And Allah's is the kingdom of the skies and the earth and towards Allah is the destination.

Allah causes the oscillation of the night and the day, in that there is certainly a lesson for those who have insight.
And Allah created every moving creature from water, so among them is one that moves on its stomach and among them is one that walks on its two feet and among them is one that walks on four (legs). Allah creates what He wills, Allah certainly has power over everything.
We have indeed sent down clear signs, and Allah guides whom He wills to the straight path.
And they say, "We believe in Allah and in the messenger and we will obey," then a party from among them turns away after that (commitment), and those are not with the believers.
And when they are invited towards Allah and His messenger that he may judge between them, then a party from among them turns away.
And if the right (that is due to them) is on their side, they come to him being fast in obedience.
Is there a disease in their hearts or are they in doubt or do they fear that Allah and His messenger will act with prejudice against them, no, they themselves are the unjust.
The statement of the believers, when they are invited towards Allah and His messenger that He may judge between them, is only that they say, "We have heard and we obey," and those are the successful persons.

Say, "Obey Allah and obey the messenger, but if you turn away, then on him (the messenger, is the responsibility of) that which he is to bear and on you (is the responsibility of) that which you are to bear.

They will serve Me, not associating anything with Me, and whoever is ungrateful after that then those are the persons who are transgressors.

(These are the) three times of privacy for you. There is no sin on you or on them beyond (these) times if they move about you, some (attending) on others.

There is no blame on the blind nor is there blame on the lame nor is there blame on the sick nor on yourselves that you eat from your own houses or houses of your fathers or houses of your mothers or houses of your brothers or houses of your sisters or houses of your father's brothers or houses of your father's sisters or houses of your mothers' brothers or houses of your mothers' sisters or (from places) the keys of which are in your control or (from) your friend. There is no sin on you if you eat together or separately. So when you enter houses then greet (by invoking peace) among yourselves, a blessed pleasingly good greeting from Allah. Thus Allah makes clear to you the signs that you may understand. (R 8)
