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). The surah closes by giving examples of believing and disbelieving women (verse 10 ff.).
The surah is also known as: Holding (something) to be Forbidden, The Prohibition.

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا قُوا أَنْفُسَكُمْ وَأَهْلِيكُمْ نَارًا وَقُودُهَا النَّاسُ وَالْحِجَارَةُ عَلَيْهَا مَلَائِكَةٌ غِلَاظٌ شِدَادٌ لَا يَعْصُونَ اللَّهَ مَا أَمَرَهُمْ وَيَفْعَلُونَ مَا يُؤْمَرُونَ ﴿٦﴾
٦ - مومنو! اپنے آپ کو اور اپنے اہل عیال کو آتش (جہنم) سے بچاؤ جس کا ایندھن آدمی اور پتھر ہیں اور جس پر تند خو اور سخت مزاج فرشتے (مقرر) ہیں جو ارشاد خدا ان کو فرماتا ہے اس کی نافرمانی نہیں کرتے اور جو حکم ان کو ملتا ہے اسے بجا لاتے ہیں .
[66:6] O you who have believed, protect yourselves and your families from a Fire whose fuel is people and stones, over which are [appointed] angels, harsh and severe; they do not disobey Allah in what He commands them but do what they are commanded.
