Allah says in al-Baqarah:
“… and get two witnesses out of your men and if there are no two men then a man and two women, such as you choose for witnesses, so that of one of them errs, the other can remind her”.
It related that Abu Ubaid from az-Zuhri that the Prophet SAW said: “the evidence of a woman is not acceptable in matters of hudud or in marriage or divorce”.
Ibn Abbas reported that the Prophet SAW said: “the fornicators are those who marry by themselves without the witnesses”.
