    Jazaka Allahu khayra for sharing the tafsir! I have a question regarding the use of the words “bahr” vs “yam” in regards to the body of water Musa as and Bani Isra’el crossed and Firawn and his army were drowned in. It was mentioned that “bahr” was used for a positive connotation while “yam” is used for a less positive or perhaps negative connotation.
    Is there something about the inherent meanings of these words that makes them more appropriate in the respective contexts?
