قَالَ لِلْمَلَإِ حَوْلَهُ إِنَّ هَٰذَا لَسَاحِرٌ عَلِيمٌ

Sahih International

[Pharaoh] said to the eminent ones around him, "Indeed, this is a learned magician.

يُرِيدُ أَن يُخْرِجَكُم مِّنْ أَرْضِكُم بِسِحْرِهِ فَمَاذَا تَأْمُرُونَ

Sahih International

He wants to drive you out of your land by his magic, so what do you advise?"

قَالُوا أَرْجِهْ وَأَخَاهُ وَابْعَثْ فِي الْمَدَائِنِ حَاشِرِينَ

Sahih International

They said, "Postpone [the matter of] him and his brother and send among the cities gatherers

ﯿ

يَأْتُوكَ بِكُلِّ سَحَّارٍ عَلِيمٍ

Sahih International

Who will bring you every learned, skilled magician."

فَجُمِعَ السَّحَرَةُ لِمِيقَاتِ يَوْمٍ مَّعْلُومٍ

Sahih International

So the magicians were assembled for the appointment of a well-known day.

وَقِيلَ لِلنَّاسِ هَلْ أَنتُم مُّجْتَمِعُونَ

Sahih International

And it was said to the people, "Will you congregate

لَعَلَّنَا نَتَّبِعُ السَّحَرَةَ إِن كَانُوا هُمُ الْغَالِبِينَ

Sahih International

That we might follow the magicians if they are the predominant?"

فَلَمَّا جَاءَ السَّحَرَةُ قَالُوا لِفِرْعَوْنَ أَئِنَّ لَنَا لَأَجْرًا إِن كُنَّا نَحْنُ الْغَالِبِينَ

Sahih International

And when the magicians arrived, they said to Pharaoh, "Is there indeed for us a reward if we are the predominant?"

قَالَ نَعَمْ وَإِنَّكُمْ إِذًا لَّمِنَ الْمُقَرَّبِينَ

Sahih International

He said, "Yes, and indeed, you will then be of those near [to me]."

قَالَ لَهُم مُّوسَىٰ أَلْقُوا مَا أَنتُم مُّلْقُونَ

Sahih International

Moses said to them, "Throw whatever you will throw."

فَأَلْقَوْا حِبَالَهُمْ وَعِصِيَّهُمْ وَقَالُوا بِعِزَّةِ فِرْعَوْنَ إِنَّا لَنَحْنُ الْغَالِبُونَ

Sahih International

So they threw their ropes and their staffs and said, "By the might of Pharaoh, indeed it is we who are predominant."

ﭿ

فَأَلْقَىٰ مُوسَىٰ عَصَاهُ فَإِذَا هِيَ تَلْقَفُ مَا يَأْفِكُونَ

Sahih International

Then Moses threw his staff, and at once it devoured what they falsified.

فَأُلْقِيَ السَّحَرَةُ سَاجِدِينَ

Sahih International

So the magicians fell down in prostration [to Allah ].

قَالُوا آمَنَّا بِرَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ

Sahih International

They said, "We have believed in the Lord of the worlds,

رَبِّ مُوسَىٰ وَهَارُونَ

Sahih International

The Lord of Moses and Aaron."

قَالَ آمَنتُمْ لَهُ قَبْلَ أَنْ آذَنَ لَكُمْ ۖ إِنَّهُ لَكَبِيرُكُمُ الَّذِي عَلَّمَكُمُ السِّحْرَ فَلَسَوْفَ تَعْلَمُونَ ۚ لَأُقَطِّعَنَّ أَيْدِيَكُمْ وَأَرْجُلَكُم مِّنْ خِلَافٍ وَلَأُصَلِّبَنَّكُمْ أَجْمَعِينَ

Sahih International

[Pharaoh] said, "You believed Moses before I gave you permission. Indeed, he is your leader who has taught you magic, but you are going to know. I will surely cut off your hands and your feet on opposite sides, and I will surely crucify you all."

قَالُوا لَا ضَيْرَ ۖ إِنَّا إِلَىٰ رَبِّنَا مُنقَلِبُونَ

Sahih International

They said, "No harm. Indeed, to our Lord we will return.

إِنَّا نَطْمَعُ أَن يَغْفِرَ لَنَا رَبُّنَا خَطَايَانَا أَن كُنَّا أَوَّلَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ

Sahih International

Indeed, we aspire that our Lord will forgive us our sins because we were the first of the believers."

وَأَوْحَيْنَا إِلَىٰ مُوسَىٰ أَنْ أَسْرِ بِعِبَادِي إِنَّكُم مُّتَّبَعُونَ

Sahih International

And We inspired to Moses, "Travel by night with My servants; indeed, you will be pursued."

فَأَرْسَلَ فِرْعَوْنُ فِي الْمَدَائِنِ حَاشِرِينَ

Sahih International

Then Pharaoh sent among the cities gatherers

إِنَّ هَٰؤُلَاءِ لَشِرْذِمَةٌ قَلِيلُونَ

Sahih International

[And said], "Indeed, those are but a small band,

وَإِنَّهُمْ لَنَا لَغَائِظُونَ

Sahih International

And indeed, they are enraging us,

ﯿ

وَإِنَّا لَجَمِيعٌ حَاذِرُونَ

Sahih International

And indeed, we are a cautious society... "

فَأَخْرَجْنَاهُم مِّن جَنَّاتٍ وَعُيُونٍ

Sahih International

So We removed them from gardens and springs

وَكُنُوزٍ وَمَقَامٍ كَرِيمٍ

Sahih International

And treasures and honorable station -

كَذَٰلِكَ وَأَوْرَثْنَاهَا بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ

Sahih International

Thus. And We caused to inherit it the Children of Israel.

فَأَتْبَعُوهُم مُّشْرِقِينَ

Sahih International

So they pursued them at sunrise.

فَلَمَّا تَرَاءَى الْجَمْعَانِ قَالَ أَصْحَابُ مُوسَىٰ إِنَّا لَمُدْرَكُونَ

Sahih International

And when the two companies saw one another, the companions of Moses said, "Indeed, we are to be overtaken!"

قَالَ كَلَّا ۖ إِنَّ مَعِيَ رَبِّي سَيَهْدِينِ

Sahih International

[Moses] said, "No! Indeed, with me is my Lord; He will guide me."

فَأَوْحَيْنَا إِلَىٰ مُوسَىٰ أَنِ اضْرِب بِّعَصَاكَ الْبَحْرَ ۖ فَانفَلَقَ فَكَانَ كُلُّ فِرْقٍ كَالطَّوْدِ الْعَظِيمِ

Sahih International

Then We inspired to Moses, "Strike with your staff the sea," and it parted, and each portion was like a great towering mountain.

وَأَزْلَفْنَا ثَمَّ الْآخَرِينَ

Sahih International

And We advanced thereto the pursuers.
