Named after the phrase "why do you forbid" (li mā tuḥrimu) in verse 1. It mentions two of the Prophet’s wives, namely Ḥafṣah and ʿĀyishah, for an incident when a confidence was betrayed (verse 3 ff.) and urges all believers to submit themselves to God and to guard themselves and their families against Hellfire (verse 6).

وَضَرَبَ اللَّهُ مَثَلًا لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا امْرَأَتَ فِرْعَوْنَ إِذْ قَالَتْ رَبِّ ابْنِ لِي عِنْدَكَ بَيْتًا فِي الْجَنَّةِ وَنَجِّنِي مِنْ فِرْعَوْنَ وَعَمَلِهِ وَنَجِّنِي مِنَ الْقَوْمِ الظَّالِمِينَ ﴿١١﴾
١١ - اور مومنوں کے لئے (ایک) مثال (تو) فرعون کی بیوی کی بیان فرمائی کہ اس نے خدا سے التجا کی کہ اے میرے پروردگار میرے لئے بہشت میں اپنے پاس ایک گھر بنا اور مجھے فرعون اور اس کے اعمال (زشت مآل) سے نجات بخش اور ظالم لوگوں کے ہاتھ سے مجھ کو مخلصی عطا فرما .
[66:11] And Allah presents an example of those who believed: the wife of Pharaoh, when she said, "My Lord, build for me near You a house in Paradise and save me from Pharaoh and his deeds and save me from the wrongdoing people."
