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!"

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'.
