* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ إِذْ رَأَى نَاراً فَقَالَ لأَهْلِهِ ٱمْكُثُوۤاْ إِنِّيۤ آنَسْتُ نَاراً لَّعَلِّيۤ آتِيكُمْ مِّنْهَا بِقَبَسٍ أَوْ أَجِدُ عَلَى ٱلنَّارِ هُدًى }

(When he saw a fire) on his left side (and said unto his folk: Wait) stay here! (I see a fire afar off. Peradventure I may bring you a brand therefrom) a brand of fire from there, for that night was very cold, (or may find guidance at the Fire) to show me the way.
