وَأَصْبَحَ فُؤَادُ أُمِّ مُوسَىٰ فَارِغاً إِن كَادَتْ لَتُبْدِي بِهِ لَوْلاۤ أَن رَّبَطْنَا عَلَىٰ قَلْبِهَا لِتَكُونَ مِنَ ٱلْمُؤْمِنِينَ
-Al-Qasas ( القصص )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

And the heart of Moses’s mother, when she found out that they had picked him up, became empty, of everything other than him. Indeed (in, softened from the hardened form, its subject omitted, in other words [understand it as] innaha) she was about to expose him, that is, as being her son, had We not fortified her heart, with patience, that is, We made it at peace, that she might be of the believers, [of] those who have faith in God’s promise (the response to [the conditional] lawlā, ‘had … not’, is given by the preceding [statement]).
