فَلَمَّا جَآءَهُمُ ٱلْحَقُّ مِنْ عِندِنَا قَالُواْ لَوْلاۤ أُوتِيَ مِثْلَ مَآ أُوتِيَ مُوسَىٰ أَوَلَمْ يَكْفُرُواْ بِمَآ أُوتِيَ مُوسَىٰ مِن قَبْلُ قَالُواْ سِحْرَانِ تَظَاهَرَا وَقَالُواْ إِنَّا بِكُلٍّ كَافِرُونَ
-Al-Qasas ( القصص )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

But when the truth, namely, Muhammad (s), came to them from Us, they said, ‘Why has he not been given the like of what Moses was given?’, in the way of signs, such as the glowing hand, the staff and others, or [by having] the Book revealed all at once. God, exalted be He, says: And did they not disbelieve in what was given to Moses before?; [before] when, they said, regarding him and Muhammad (s), ‘Two sorcerers (sāhirān; a variant reading has sihrān, ‘two sorceries’, namely [what they said regarding] the Qur’ān and the Torah) abetting each other.’ And they said, ‘We indeed disbelieve in both’, the two prophets and the two Scriptures [of Moses and Muhammad].
