Commentary

Al-bahra – (Sea) here, aim from al-bahra is the Red Sea (Arabian Gulf). It is also called a deep sea. Through this sea the Egypt meets with Syria and Siena. The Children of Israel entered in the Peninsula of Siena after crossing this Sea and got freedom from Pharaoh and folks of Egypt.  

FaraqNaa bikumul-bahra - (We brought you through the Sea). It indicates towards the incident mentioned in this verse that when the Children of Israel began crossing the Red Sea, God Almighty created for them a way to cross the sea. It was a Miracle of Prophet Moses (peace be upon Him) that when He beat His stick on the water of sea, the bottom of the sea became dry and now there was a path for the Children of Israel to cross the sea. According to historians, this incident happened nearly during 1447 B.C.

Wa ‘antum tanzuruun – (And you were looking). The Children of Israel are being told that they had seen with their open eyes the infamy and disgraced death of their greatest cruel and despotic king.

The Children of Israel used to bear the cruelties of their tyrant kings of Egypt for many years. After all, they devised that they should leave Egypt and go to their ancestor’s native country Syria and Palestine under the supervision of Prophet Moses (peace be upon Him). Because the government of Egypt was not agreeing to permit them leaving Egypt, so they started their journey at night. They had fear of following by the Egyptian government, grief on leaving their homes and utter darkness of night. Due to fear and confusion they forgot the correct path.

On the other side, Pharaoh had known that the Children of Israel had run away. He followed with his Army and reached near them. Now the Jews were entirely helpless. In front of them, there was sea in the east and behind them a great Egyptian Army. The Children of Israel were very confused as they had been surrounded. At that time, Prophet Moses (peace be upon Him) beat His stick in the sea according to the commandment of God Almighty. The sea was cracked and the dry land appeared. Caravan of the Children of Israel crossed the sea. Meanwhile the Army of Pharaoh reached there. They saw dried path and dropped down. But they were still in the middle of the way that the water became in a level and met mutually itself. Pharaoh drowned along with his Army. The Children of Israel looked the show of drowning their enemy helplessly with their eyes. Above mentioned verse signifies towards such story.
