Ayah

وَرَٰوَدَتۡهُ ٱلَّتِى هُوَ فِى بَيۡتِهَا عَن نَّفۡسِهِۦ وَغَلَّقَتِ ٱلۡأَبۡوَٰبَ وَقَالَتۡ هَيۡتَ لَكَ ۚ قَالَ مَعَاذَ ٱللَّهِ ۖ إِنَّهُۥ رَبِّىٓ أَحۡسَنَ مَثۡوَاىَ ۖ إِنَّهُۥ لَا يُفۡلِحُ ٱلظَّٰلِمُونَ

Translation

But she in whose house he was, sought to seduce him from his (true) self: she fastened the doors, and said: "Now come, thou (dear one)!" He said: "Allah forbid! truly (thy husband) is my lord! he made my sojourn agreeable! truly to no good come those who do wrong!"<br/>

Tafsir

And she, in whose house he was - namely Zulaykhaa - attempted to seduce him, that is, she asked him to lie with her, and she closed the doors, of the house. And she said, to him: 'Come!' (hayta laka: the laam [of laka] is for clarification; a variant reading has heeta laka or haytu laka). 'God forbid!', I seek refuge with God from this, he said. 'Truly he, who bought me, is my lord, my master, who has given me an honourable place, [an honourable] residence, and so I cannot betray him with regard to his family. Truly, evildoers, fornicators, never prosper'.
