Our dear Abd al-Rahman is crusing the net to find an answer to this Quranic grammatical disaster in hadhan lasahiran so I'm posting again Ibn Kathir's tafseer but this time i'm only posting the first paragraph and can you tell us what is he saying? Hint: In hadhan lasahiran in fadiha kabeera and it really should be in hadhayne lasahiran

قَالُوا إِنْ هَذَانِ لَسَاحِرَانِ " وَهَذِهِ لُغَة لِبَعْضِ الْعَرَب جَاءَتْ هَذِهِ الْقِرَاءَة عَلَى إِعْرَابهَا وَمِنْهُمْ مَنْ قَرَأَ إِنَّ هَذَيْنِ لَسَاحِرَانِ وَهَذِهِ اللُّغَة الْمَشْهُورَة وَقَدْ تَوَسَّعَ النُّحَاة فِي الْجَوَاب عَنْ الْقِرَاءَة الْأُولَى بِمَا لَيْسَ هَذَا مَوْضِعه

I will be waiting for your answer with great anticipation
