Surah At-Tahreem (The Prohibition)
This Surah is Madani, and it has 12 verses and 2 sections

In the Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Most Merciful

And Allah has cited for the believers the example of the wife of Fir'aun (the Pharaoh), when she said, "My Lord, build for me, near You, a house in the Paradise ... 66:11)

COMMENTARY: This is the example of the wife of Fir'aun (the Pharaoh) whose name was 'Asiyah bint Muzahim. When Musa AS accomplished his task in defeating the sorcerers who embraced Mosaic faith, she too embraced the Mosaic faith and became a Muslim. Fir'aun ordered that she should be tortured severely and tormented harshly.

According to some reports, her hands and feet were pegged with nails to the ground and a huge rock was placed on her chest, so that she might not be able to move. In this state she supplicated to Allah as mentioned in this verse. According to other reports, it was suggested that a huge rock be dropped on her. They had hardly dropped the rock and she prayed to Allah as quoted in the verse. Allah then showed Sayyidah Asiyah AS her house in Paradise... and while looking at this vision her soul departed. When the rock fell on her body, it was lifeless. [Mazhari]

(and she testified to the truth of the words of her Lord and His books, and she was one of the devout... 66:12) - The phrase 'Words of her Lord' refers to scriptures that were revealed to the Holy Prophets. The word kutub [Books] refers to the well-known celestial books Injeel, Zabur and Torah.

The concluding statement (and she was one of the devout....66:12) describes the quality of Sayyidah Maryam AS. The word Qanitun is the plural of Qanit and signifies 'devout and obedient'. Sayyidna Abu Musa RA narrates that the Messenger of Allah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam said: "Whilst many men have attained spiritual perfection, among women only Sayyidah Asiyah, wife of Fir'aun, and Sayyidah Maryam, daughter of Emran AS), achieved this perfection." [Bukhari and Muslim as quoted by Mazhari].

Apparently, 'perfection' in this context refers to 'characteristics of Prophethood'. Despite being a woman, she achieved them. [Mazhari]

A couple was having a party at their house. An hour before the party the woman found out that she still needed escargots. So she sent her husband out to get it. He was walking to the supermarket and he figured he had lots of time. So he stopped at a restaurant on the way. An hour and a half later he looked at his watch and realized that the party had already started. He quickly ran to the market, bought the snails and ran home. He tried to sneak into the kitchen without his wife seeing him. But at that moment his wife came out. He quickly threw the snails on the floor and said, "Come on guys, we're almost there."
