* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn


{ قَالُوۤاْ إِنْ هَـٰذَانِ لَسَاحِرَانِ يُرِيدَانِ أَن يُخْرِجَاكُمْ مِّنْ أَرْضِكُمْ بِسِحْرِهِمَا وَيَذْهَبَا بِطَرِيقَتِكُمُ ٱلْمُثْلَىٰ }

They said to each other ‘These two men hādhān this form concords with the forms used by those grammarians who use the alif ending for all three cases of the dual person; Abū ‘Amr has the variant reading hādhayn are indeed sorcerers who intend to expel you from your land by their sorcery and do away with your excellent traditions muthlā the feminine form of amthal meaning ‘the noblest’ in other words they will do away with the loyalty of the noblemen among you because these latter will prefer the two of them Moses and Aaron on account of their triumph.
