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

Majid Daryabadi

O ye who believe! the testimony amongst you, when death presenteth itself to you, at the making of a bequest shall be that of two equitable persons from amongst you, or two others from amongst those not of you, if ye be journeying in the earth and the affliction of death afflicteth you. O Ye shall detain the twain after the prayer, if ye be in doubt, and they shall swear by Allah affirming: we shall not barter it for a price, even though he be a kinsman, and we shall not hide the testimony of Allah, for then verily we shall be of the sinners.
