Ayah

قَالَ فَٱذۡهَبۡ فَإِنَّ لَكَ فِى ٱلۡحَيَوٰةِ أَن تَقُولَ لَا مِسَاسَ ۖ وَإِنَّ لَكَ مَوۡعِدًا لَّن تُخۡلَفَهُۥ ۖ وَٱنظُرۡ إِلَىٰٓ إِلَٰهِكَ ٱلَّذِى ظَلۡتَ عَلَيۡهِ عَاكِفًا ۖ لَّنُحَرِّقَنَّهُۥ ثُمَّ لَنَنسِفَنَّهُۥ فِى ٱلۡيَمِّ نَسۡفًا

Translation

(Moses) said: "Get thee gone! but thy (punishment) in this life will be that thou wilt say, 'touch me not'; and moreover (for a future penalty) thou hast a promise that will not fail: Now look at thy god, of whom thou hast become a devoted worshipper: We will certainly (melt) it in a blazing fire and scatter it broadcast in the sea!"<br/>

Tafsir

Said he, Moses to him, 'Begone! It shall be yours [as your lot] throughout life, that is, for the duration of your life, to say, to whomever you may see, "Do not touch [me]!", that is, do not come near me - he used to wander about [aimlessly] throughout the land, and whenever he touched a person, or a person touched him, both would succumb to a fever. And indeed there will be a tryst for you, for you to be chastised, which you will not fail to keep (read lan tukhlifahu, meaning '[a tryst] which you shall not miss'; or lan tukhlafahu, 'for which you will not be forgotten', meaning: 'nay you will be sent forth to [keep] it'). Now look at your god to whom you remained clinging! (zalta is actually zalilta, but the first laam has been omitted in order to soften it), that is to say, [you remained] by his [your god's] side, worshipping him. We will surely burn it, in fire, and then scatter [the ashes of] it into the waters, we will disperse it into the winds of the sea; and, after having slaughtered it, Moses did [exactly] that which he has mentioned.
