In the name ofAllah, the Beneficent, the
Surely I shall have your hands and feet cut off upon alternate sides;
then I shall crucify you every one.
They said: Lo! We are about to return unto our Lord!
thou takest vengeance on us only for as much as we believed the tokens of our
Lord when they came unto us. Our Lord! Vouchsafe unto us steadfastness and
make us die as men who have surrendered (unto Thee).

It was described
in the previous verses that the wizards, collected by Pharaoh, were defeated by
Prophet Moses (peace be upon Him), but even then, for inspiring with awe, he
rebuked the wizards taking courage: If I am Pharaoh! Surely I will punish you
very severely due to your revolt.
commanded in this verse that Pharaoh addressed the wizards: I will have cut off
your hands of one side at first and then feet of your alternate side. And after
that, I will crucify you surely. The wizards replied to Pharaoh: Certainly we
will return unto our Lord. Every living being has to die. If the death comes by
means of your hands, thus, we are ready. Your punishment will torment and be
pitiable for a while. After that, when the soul is gone, then there is peace
and tranquility. The death is certain for you also. But such peace and
tranquility will not be for you.
should do that what you desire to do. We are totally innocent. You are going to
be angry with us because we believed in our Lord after looking those open tokens,
which He (God) has shown us through Prophet Moses (peace be upon Him). No fair
individual can ignore except accepting the Truth after beholding. There is neither
any reason of taking this matter ill nor you have any right to be angry on it. But
if you have been ready to tyrannize us, you will suffer. We pray from the
Omnipotent God: Our Lord! Vouchsafe unto us steadfastness and patience, so that,
this torment of sometime become easy for us. Our Lord! We have pleaded now that
the doors of patience be opened upon us, so that, our steps should not stagger
from Your Path, and we should leave this world accepting Your obedience and
having belief that You are our Lord. Confusion should not occur in our Belief
due to pain and ailment. And we should attend Your Court being Your obedient (make
us die as men who have surrendered unto Thee).
