وَإِذْ أَنْجَيْنَاكُمْ مِّنْ آلِ فِرْعَونَ يَسُومُونَكُمْ سُوۤءَ ٱلْعَذَابِ يُقَتِّلُونَ أَبْنَآءَكُمْ وَيَسْتَحْيُونَ نِسَآءَكُمْ وَفِي ذٰلِكُمْ بَلاۤءٌ مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ عَظِيمٌ
-Al-A‘râf ( الأعراف )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

And, remember, when We delivered you (anjaynākum: a variant reading has anjākum, ‘He delivered you’) from Pharaoh’s folk who were inflicting upon you, [who were] burdening you and making you taste, terrible chastisement, the worst kind [of chastisement], namely, slaying your sons and sparing, retaining, your women; and therein, [in that] deliverance or chastisement, was a tremendous trial, [either] a grace or a tribulation, from your Lord, so will you not heed the admonition and desist from what you are saying?
