Tafsir

They said, to each other, 'These two men (haadhaan, this [form] concords with the forms used by those[grammarians] who use the alif [ending] for all three cases of the dual person; Aboo 'Amr has [the variant reading] haadhayn) are indeed sorcerers who intend to expel you from your land by their sorcery, and do away with your excellent traditions (muthlaa, the feminine form of amthal, meaning 'the noblest') in other words, [they will do away with the loyalty of] the noblemen among you, because these [latter] will prefer the two of them [Moses and Aaron] on account of their triumph.
