وَقَالَ فِرْعَوْنُ يٰأَيُّهَا ٱلْملأُ مَا عَلِمْتُ لَكُمْ مِّنْ إِلَـٰهٍ غَيْرِي فَأَوْقِدْ لِي يٰهَامَانُ عَلَى ٱلطِّينِ فَٱجْعَل لِّي صَرْحاً لَّعَلِّيۤ أَطَّلِعُ إِلَىٰ إِلَـٰهِ مُوسَىٰ وَإِنِّي لأَظُنُّهُ مِنَ ٱلْكَاذِبِينَ
-Al-Qasas ( القصص )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

And Pharaoh said, ‘O [members of the] council, I do not know of any god for you other than me. So kindle for me, O Hāmān, [a fire] over the clay, and bake for me bricks [of clay], and make me a tower, a lofty palace, that I may take a look at the god of Moses, to observe him and inspect him; for truly I consider him to be a liar’, in his claim of [the existence of] some other god and that he is his messenger.
