Aya 106
يا أَيُّهَا الَّذينَ آمَنوا شَهادَةُ بَينِكُم إِذا حَضَرَ أَحَدَكُمُ المَوتُ حينَ الوَصِيَّةِ اثنانِ ذَوا عَدلٍ مِنكُم أَو آخَرانِ مِن غَيرِكُم إِن أَنتُم ضَرَبتُم فِي الأَرضِ فَأَصابَتكُم مُصيبَةُ المَوتِ ۚ تَحبِسونَهُما مِن بَعدِ الصَّلاةِ فَيُقسِمانِ بِاللَّهِ إِنِ ارتَبتُم لا نَشتَري بِهِ ثَمَنًا وَلَو كانَ ذا قُربىٰ ۙ وَلا نَكتُمُ شَهادَةَ اللَّهِ إِنّا إِذًا لَمِنَ الآثِمينَ


O Believers! When death approaches anyone of you, then at the time of making a bequest there should be two men of probity from amongst you (for) taking testimony or (any) two men from among others if you are travelling in the land. If (in the meanwhile) the agony of death overtakes you, detain both of them after Prayer. If you suspect (them) they shall both swear by Allah: ‘We shall not sell it for any price, even though one is a (very close) relative, nor shall we conceal the testimony (ordained) by Allah. (If we hide it,) we shall be among sinners there and then.’
