قَالَتۡ فَذَٰلِكُنَّ ٱلَّذِى لُمۡتُنَّنِى فِيهِ ۖ وَلَقَدۡ رَٰوَدتُّهُۥ عَن نَّفۡسِهِۦ فَٱسۡتَعۡصَمَ ۖ وَلَئِن لَّمۡ يَفۡعَلۡ مَآ ءَامُرُهُۥ لَيُسۡجَنَنَّ وَلَيَكُونًا مِّنَ ٱلصَّٰغِرِينَ
She said: "There before you is the man about whom ye did blame me! I did seek to seduce him from his (true) self but he did firmly save himself guiltless!.... and now, if he doth not my bidding, he shall certainly be cast into prison, and (what is more) be of the company of the vilest!"<br/>
She, the wife of the Court Officer, said, when she saw what happened to them, 'This is he on whose account, for the love of whom, you blamed me (alladhee lumtunnanee feehi is an explication of her excuse). Indeed I did attempt to seduce him, but he withheld himself, he refused. Yet if he does not do what I bid him, he verily shall be imprisoned, and verily shall be of those brought low', those abased. The women said to him: 'Obey your mistress!'.
