026 - Soorah ash-Shu'araa. - (The Poets) - [Makkee]
[026:040] "That we may follow the sorcerers [who were on Fir'aun's (Pharaoh's) religion of disbelief] if they are the winners."
[026:041] So, when the sorcerers arrived, they said to Fir'aun (Pharaoh): "Will there surely be a reward for us if we are the winners?"
[026:042] He said: "Yes, and you shall then verily be of those brought near (to myself)."
[026:043] Mūsā (Moses) said to them: "Throw what you are going to throw!"
[026:044] So they threw their ropes and their sticks, and said: "By the might of Fir'aun (Pharaoh), it is we who will certainly win!"
[026:045] Then Mūsā (Moses) threw his stick, and behold, it swallowed up all that they falsely showed!
[026:046] And the sorcerers fell down prostrate.
[026:047] Saying: "We believe in the Lord of the 'Ālamīn (mankind, jinn and all that exists).
[026:048] "The Lord of Mūsā (Moses) and Hārūn (Aaron)."
[026:049] [Fir'aun (Pharaoh)] said: "You have believed in him before I give you leave. Surely, he indeed is your chief, who has taught you magic! So verily, you shall come to know. Verily, I will cut off your hands and your feet on opposite sides, and I will crucify you all."
[026:050] They said: "No harm! Surely, to our Lord (Allāh) we are to return.
[026:051] "Verily, we really hope that our Lord will forgive us our sins, as we are the first of the believers [in Mūsā (Moses) and in the Monotheism which he has brought from Allāh]."
[026:052] And We revealed to Mūsā (Moses), saying: "Depart by night with My slaves, verily, you will be pursued."
[026:053] Then Fir'aun (Pharaoh) sent callers to (all) the cities.
[026:054] (Saying): "Verily, these indeed are but a small band.
[026:055] "And verily, they have done what has enraged us.
[026:056] "But we are a host all assembled, amply forewarned."
[026:057] So, We expelled them from gardens and springs,
[026:058] Treasures, and every kind of honourable place.
[026:059] Thus [We turned them (Pharaoh's people) out] and We caused the Children of Israel to inherit them.
[026:060] So, they pursued them at sunrise.
