What does the Noble Quran say about temptation in general, flirting and sexual enticement?

Those who purposely tempt the believers and do not repent from their evil will end up in Hell Fire.  Fitnah (فتنة) in Arabic means both temptation and tumult.  See detailed definitions below.  Any type of unlawful enticement is fitnah, and any type of trickery that leads to a conflict is also a fitnah.  This includes but not limited to:

1-  Causing doubts in the hearts of the Believers toward Islam by talking negative about Islam.

2-  Verbal sexual enticement.

3-  Dressing inappropriately, such as wearing bikinis where 99% of the nakedness is exposed to the public.

4-  Encouraging evil actions and decisions such as gambling, drinking alcohol, taking drugs, etc...

5-  Purposely causing two parties or two groups of people to have conflicts with each others.  See also: What does Islam say about tumult?

And so on....  Allah Almighty Said:

 

Noble Verse(s) 85:10

Arabic (from right to left):

85:10 ان الذين فتنوا المؤمنين والمؤمنات ثم لم يتوبوا فلهم عذاب جهنم ولهم عذاب الحريق

Muhammad Al-Hilali & Muhsin Khan:

[085:010]  Verily, those who put into trial the believing men and believing women, and then do not turn in repentance, (to Allah), will have the torment of Hell, and they will have the punishment of the burning Fire.

Palmer:

[085:010]  Verily, those who make trial of the believers, men and women, and then do not repent, for them is the torment of hell, and for them is the torment of the burning!

As we clearly see in Noble Verse 85:10, anyone who purposely draws a believing Muslim into temptation (any form of evil temptation) then he/she is committing a sin, and if he/she doesn't repent, then their punishment with Allah Almighty is severe.

The Arabic words fatanoo (فتنوا) is derived from the root word fitnah (فتنة), which literally means temptation, or putting someone to the test, or putting someone in a situation where your intention is to cause him/her to fail.  It is as the English translation says: a trial.  It also means trying to create a conflict or trouble, either to someone or between people.
