Sura al-Baqara 2:212 (Shaf) - Mahidh (Menstruation)
Sura al-Baqara 2:212 (Hanb) - Shahada (Confession)
2:212 The present life was ordained for those who believe not, and they laugh the faithful to scorn; but they who fear [God] shall be above them, on the day of the resurrection: For God is bountiful unto whom he pleaseth without measure.

Sura al-Baqara 2:282 (Hanf+Malik+Shaf) - Qurud (Mortgaging)
2:282 O true believers, when ye bind yourselves one to the other in a debt for a certain time, write it down; and let a writer write between you according to justice, and let not the writer refuse writing according to what God hath taught him; but let him write, and let him who oweth the debt dictate, and let him fear God his Lord, and not diminish ought thereof. But if he who oweth the debt be foolish, or weak, or be not able to dictate himself, let his agent dictate according to equity; and call to witness two witnesses of your [neighbouring] men; but if there be not two men, [let there be] a man and two women of those whom ye shall choose for witnesses: If one of those [women] should mistake, the other of them will cause her to recollect. And the witnesses shall not refuse, whensoever they shall be called. And disdain not to write it down, be it a large [debt], or be it a small one, until its time [of payment]: This will be more just in the sight of God, and more right for bearing witness, and more easy, that ye may not doubt. But if it be a present bargain which ye transact between your selves, it shall be no crime in you, if ye write it not down. And take witnesses when ye sell one to the other, and let no harm be done to the writer, nor to the witness; [which] if ye do, it will surely be injustice in you: And fear God, and God will instruct you, for God knoweth all things.

And conceal not the testimony, for he who concealeth it, hath surely a wicked heart: God knoweth that which ye do.

Sura al-Nisa' 4:135 (Hanf+Hanb) - Shahada (Confession)
4:135 O true believers, observe justice when ye bear witness before God, although [it be] against your selves, or [your] parents, or relations; whether [the party] be rich, or [whether he be] poor; for God is more worthy than them both: Therefore follow not [your own] lust [in bearing testimony], so that ye swerve [from justice]. And whether ye wrest [your evidence], or decline [giving it], God is well acquainted with that which ye do.

Ye shall shut them both up, after the [afternoon] prayer, and they shall swear by God, if ye doubt [them, and they shall say], we will not sell [our evidence] for a bribe, although [the person concerned] be one who is related [to us], neither will we conceal the testimony of God, for then should we certainly be [of the number] of the wicked.
