Ayah

وَدَخَلَ ٱلۡمَدِينَةَ عَلَىٰ حِينِ غَفۡلَةٍ مِّنۡ أَهۡلِهَا فَوَجَدَ فِيهَا رَجُلَيۡنِ يَقۡتَتِلَانِ هَٰذَا مِن شِيعَتِهِۦ وَهَٰذَا مِنۡ عَدُوِّهِۦ ۖ فَٱسۡتَغَٰثَهُ ٱلَّذِى مِن شِيعَتِهِۦ عَلَى ٱلَّذِى مِنۡ عَدُوِّهِۦ فَوَكَزَهُۥ مُوسَىٰ فَقَضَىٰ عَلَيۡهِ ۖ قَالَ هَٰذَا مِنۡ عَمَلِ ٱلشَّيۡطَٰنِ ۖ إِنَّهُۥ عَدُوٌّ مُّضِلٌّ مُّبِينٌ

Translation

And he entered the city at a time when its people were not watching: and he found there two men fighting,- one of his own religion, and the other, of his foes. Now the man of his own religion appealed to him against his foe, and Moses struck him with his fist and made an end of him. He said: "This is a work of Evil (Satan): for he is an enemy that manifestly misleads!"<br/>

Tafsir

And he, Moses, entered the city, Pharaoh's city, Memphis, having been absent from it for a while, at a time when its people were oblivious, the time of the afternoon nap, and found therein two men fighting, one of his own faction, namely, an Israelite, and the other of his enemies, in other words, an Egyptian, who was exploiting an Israelite to carry firewood to Pharaoh's kitchen. So the one who was of his faction called to him for help against the one who was of his enemies, and so Moses said to him, 'Leave him be!', and it is said that he replied to Moses [thus]: 'I am truly considering making you carry this [firewood]!'. So Moses punched him, that is, he hit him with his fist clenched - he [Moses] was a strong man with a powerful strike, and did away with him, that is, he killed him, but he had not intended to kill him. He buried him in the sand. He said, 'This, killing of him, is of Satan's doing, inciting my anger. Indeed he is an enemy, to the son of Adam, a manifest misleader', of him.
