The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Although the people of Egypt were polytheists then, that verse indicates that they accept the existence of Allah. The fact that they exonerated Allah and that they likened Hazrat Yusuf to angels shows that they had the belief of Allah and angels. (Vehbi Efendi, Kur’an Tefsiri) The fact that the women exonerated Allah shows that there existed some leftovers of the religion of oneness.
