قَالَ ذَٰلِكَ مَا كُنَّا نَبۡغِ ۚ فَٱرۡتَدَّا عَلَىٰٓ ءَاثَارِهِمَا قَصَصًا
Moses said: "That was what we were seeking after:" So they went back on their footsteps, following (the path they had come).<br/>
Said he, Moses, 'That, namely, our losing the fish, is what we have been seeking!', what we have been after, for it is a sign for us of the presence of the one whom we seek. So they turned back, retracing their footsteps, until they reached the rock.
