يٰۗاُخْتَ ہٰرُوْنَ مَا كَانَ اَبُوْكِ امْرَاَ سَوْءٍ وَّمَا كَانَتْ اُمُّكِ بَغِيًّا۝۲۸ۖۚ
Ya okhta haroona ma kana abooki imraa sawin wama kanat ommuki baghiyyan


Ahmed Ali

O sister of Aaron, your father was not a wicked person, nor your mother sinful!"



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (oh sister of aaron!) o you who resembles aaron in worship-aaron was a righteous man, one of the best among people-; and it is also said that aaron was an evil man and so they compared her to him; and it is also said that aaron was her half brother from her father side. (your father was not a wicked man) your father was not an adulterer (nor was your mother a harlot) nor was your mother a whore.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : o sister of aaron — he was a righteous man, in other words [what is meant is], o you who are like him in [terms of] chastity — your father was not a wicked man, that is, a fornicator, nor was your mother unchaste’, that is, a fornicatress: so how is it that you have this child?
