* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ وَسْئَلِ ٱلْقَرْيَةَ ٱلَّتِي كُنَّا فِيهَا وَٱلْعِيْرَ ٱلَّتِيۤ أَقْبَلْنَا فِيهَا وَإِنَّا لَصَادِقُونَ }

(Ask the township) the people of the township (where we were) it was one of the villages of Egypt, (and the caravan) and the people of the caravan (with which we travelled hither) they had travelled with a group of people from Canaan. (Lo! we speak the Truth) in that which we are saying to you. And so they told Jacob these words.
