[066:008] O you who believe! Turn to Allh with sincere repentance! It may be that your Lord will expiate from you your sins, and admit you into Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise) the Day that Allh will not disgrace the Prophet (Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) and those who believe with him. Their Light will run forward before them and (with their Records Books of deeds) in their right hands. They will say: "Our Lord! Keep perfect our Light for us [and do not put it off till we cross over the Sirt (a slippery bridge over the Hell) safely] and grant us forgiveness. Verily, You are Able to do all things."


[066:009] O Prophet (Muhammad [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam])! Strive hard against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be severe against them; their abode will be Hell, and worst indeed is that destination.


[066:010] Allh sets forth an example for those who disbelieve: the wife of Nh (Noah) and the wife of Lt (Lot). They were under two of our righteous slaves, but they both betrayed them (their husbands by rejecting their doctrine). So, they [Nh (Noah) and Lt (Lot) ['alayhis-salm]] availed them (their respective wives) not against Allh and it was said: "Enter the Fire along with those who enter!"


[066:011] And Allh has set forth an example for those who believe: the wife of Fir'aun (Pharaoh), when she said: "My Lord! Build for me a home with You in Paradise, and save me from Fir'aun (Pharaoh) and his work, and save me from the people who are Zlimn (polytheists, wrong doers and disbelievers in Allh).


[066:012] And Maryam (Mary), the daughter of 'Imrn who guarded her chastity. And We breathed into (the sleeve of her shirt or her garment) through Our Rh [i.e. Jibrl (Gabriel)], and she testified to the truth of the Words of her Lord [i.e. believed in the Words of Allh: "Be!" and he was; that is 's (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary) as a Messenger of Allh], and (also believed in) His Scriptures, and she was of the Qanitn (i.e. obedient to Allh).

(V.66:12) "And (remember) she who guarded her chastity [Virgin Maryam (Mary)], We breathed into (the sleeves of) her (shirt or garment) through Our Rh [Jibrl (Gabriel)],* and We made her and her son ['Is (Jesus)] a sign for Al-'Alamn (mankind and jinn)." (V.21:91)


* It is said that Jibrl (Gabriel) had merely breathed in the sleeve of Maryam's (Mary) shirt, and thus she conceived.


(V.66:12) The Statement of Allh [Subhnahu wa Ta'la]:

"And Allh has set forth an example for those who believe: the wife of Fir'aun... (up to) ... and she was of the Qnitn (i.e., obedient to Allh)." (V.66:11, 12)

Narrated Abu Ms [radhi-yAllhu 'anhu]: Allh's Messenger [sal-Allhu 'alayhi wa sallam] said, "Many amongst men reached (the level of) perfection but none amongst the women reached this level except Asiyah, Pharaoh's wife, and Maryam (Mary), the daughter of 'Imrn. And no doubt, the superiority of 'Aishah to other women is like the superiority of Tharid (i.e. a meat and bread dish) to other meals." [Sahih Al-Bukhari, 4/3411 (O.P.623)]
