Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(And We inspired the mother of Moses) Jochabed the daughter of Levi, the son of Jacob (Yohabadh Bint Lawi Ibn Ya'qub), (saying: Suckle him) suckle this child (and, when you fear for him) to be lost, (then cast him into the river) put him in a chest and then throw the chest in the sea (and fear not) his drowning (nor grieve) for his loss, or because you think he will never return to you. (Lo! We shall bring him back unto thee and shall make him (one) of Our messengers) to Pharaoh and his people.
