قَالَ فَاِنَّا قَدْ فَتَنَّا قَوْمَكَ مِنْۢ بَعْدِكَ وَاَضَلَّـہُمُ السَّامِرِيُّ۝۸۵
Qala fainna qad fatanna qawmaka min baAAdika waadallahumu alssamiriyyu


Ahmed Ali

He said: "We have put your people on trial in your absence; and Sameri has led them astray."



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (he said) o moses! (lo! we have tried thy folk) with the worship of the calf (in thine absence) after you set off for the mountain, (and al-samiri hath misled them) al-samiri commanded them to do so.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : but those he supposed [to be following him] had remained behind, for he, exalted be he, said, ‘indeed we tried your people after you, that is, after your departure from them, and the samaritan led them astray’, so they took to worshipping the [golden] calf.
