Sura 24 Light

64 verses. Adulterers or fornicators to be flogged with 100 stripes. They are only to marry like sinners. A false charge against a chaste woman without four witnesses merits 80 stripes. Charge against spouse with no corroborating evidence needs an oath four times and a fifth for a curse on them if they lie. A wife may respond with similar oaths thatcher husband lies. Women to guard modesty with veils over bosoms. Show beauty only to close male relatives. God the light of heavens and earth.
