فَلَنَأْتِيَنَّكَ بِسِحْرٍ مِّثْلِهِۦفَٱجْعَلْ بَيْنَنَا وَبَيْنَكَ مَوْعِدًا لَّا نُخْلِفُهُۥ نَحْنُ وَلَآ أَنتَ مَكَانًا سُوًى 58

Allaah Almighty commands: We did show Pharaoh all kinds of Portents like natural scenes of the world and the miracles of Moses (peace be upon him), but he considered all of them amusement and sport, and he denied from obeying Our Commandment. He said: You wish to turn the people from us and unto yourself; by showing them these conjurations, so that after driving us out; you may become a king. Good! Stop! We too shall bring to you magic as you showed. You should appoint a tryst between us and you for a certain time and a certain open field, a competition will be arranged among both of us before all the people.
