66. Accusing the Wives with witnesses or by taking Oaths.The Wife has full power to avert the Punishment


Surah No. 24, An Noor, Ayats No. 6 to 8

وَالَّذِينَ يَرْمُونَ أَزْوَاجَهُمْ وَلَمْ يَكُن لَّهُمْ شُهَدَاء إِلَّا أَنفُسُهُمْ فَشَهَادَةُ أَحَدِهِمْ

وَالْخَامِسَةُ أَنَّ لَعْنَتَ اللَّهِ عَلَيْهِ إِن oأَرْبَعُ شَهَادَاتٍ بِاللَّهِ إِنَّهُ لَمِنَ الصَّادِقِينَ

عَنْهَا الْعَذَابَ أَنْ تَشْهَدَ أَرْبَعَ شَهَادَاتٍ بِاللَّهِ o كَانَ مِنَ الْكَاذِبِينَ وَيَدْرَأُ

o إِنَّهُ لَمِنَ الْكَاذِبِينَ

Translation :

And for those who launch a charge against their wives, and produce no evidence for them except their own― their solitary evidence (can be received) if they take oath four times by Allah that they are telling the truth;

And the fifth time oath by Allah should be that if they are telling lie the curse of Allah be upon them.

But it would avert the punishment from the wife, if she bears witness four times with an oath by Allah, that (her husband) is telling a lie;
