وَاَوْحَيْنَاۗ اِلٰى مُوْسٰۗي اَنْ اَسْرِ بِعِبَادِيْۗ اِنَّكُمْ مُّتَّبَعُوْنَ۝۵۲
Waawhayna ila moosa an asri biAAibadee innakum muttabaAAoona


Ahmed Ali

We said to Moses: "Travel by night with My creatures. You will surely be pursued."



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (and we inspired moses, saying: take away my slaves by night) take by night whoever believes in you from among the children of israel, (for ye will be pursued) pharaoh and his people will catch up with you.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : and we revealed to moses, after many years which he spent among them calling them to the truth with god’s signs but all of which only increased them in insolence, [saying], ‘journey with my servants, the children of israel, by night (a variant reading [for an asri] is an isr, from the verb sarā, one form of asrā) go with them by night in the direction of the sea, for indeed you will be pursued’. pharaoh and his armies will pursue you, but when they enter the sea in pursuit of you, i will deliver you and drown them.
