426. Commandment – Punishment for those who make false and defamatory statements about their wives

[24:7] And as for those who calumniate their wives, and have not witnesses except themselves — the evidence of any one of such people shall suffice if he bears witness four times in the name of Allah saying that he is surely of those who speak the truth. [24:8] And his fifth oath shall be to say that Allah’s curse be upon him if he be of the liars. [24:9] But it shall avert the punishment from her if she bears witness four times in the name of Allah saying that he is of the liars. [24:10] And her fifth oath shall be to say that the wrath of Allah be upon her if he speaks the truth.
