|He was drowned.
||He was saved. |
- I deem thee lost, O Pharaoh. And he wished to scare them from the land, but We drowned him and those with him, all together.
- We seized him [Pharaoh] and his hosts, and abandoned them unto the sea.
- So, when they angered Us, We punished them and drowned them every one.
- Pharaoh ... when the (fate of) drowning overtook him, he exclaimed: I believe that there is no God save Him in Whom the Children of Israel believe ... But this day We save thee in thy body that thou mayst be a portent for those after thee. Lo! most of mankind are heedless of Our portents.
Pharaoh was drowned but his body was preserved as a sign for mankind.
