* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ وَقَالَ ٱلْمَلأُ مِن قَوْمِ فِرْعَونَ أَتَذَرُ مُوسَىٰ وَقَوْمَهُ لِيُفْسِدُواْ فِي ٱلأَرْضِ وَيَذَرَكَ وَآلِهَتَكَ قَالَ سَنُقَتِّلُ أَبْنَآءَهُمْ وَنَسْتَحْيِـي نِسَآءَهُمْ وَإِنَّا فَوْقَهُمْ قَاهِرُونَ }

He said ‘We shall slaughter read nuqattilu or naqtulu their new-born sons and spare their women keeping them alive for us as we did with them before. For surely we have irresistible power over them!’ and they did this to them and so the Children of Israel grieved.
