يَتَوَارَىٰ مِنَ ٱلْقَوْمِ مِن سُوۤءِ مَا بُشِّرَ بِهِ أَيُمْسِكُهُ عَلَىٰ هُونٍ أَمْ يَدُسُّهُ فِي ٱلتُّرَابِ أَلاَ سَآءَ مَا يَحْكُمُونَ
-An-Nahl ( النحل )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

He hides, disappearing, from people, that is, [from] his people, out of distress at the tidings given to him, fearing mockery, unsure what to do with it [the newborn]: shall he retain it — refrain from killing it — in humiliation, [enduring] shame and disgrace, or trample into the dust, by burying it alive. Verily wretched is what they judge, [evil is] this judgement of theirs, in which they ascribe to their Creator [that His are the] daughters, who have such a [lowly] status in their eyes.
