* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ وَمِنْ آيَاتِهِ يُرِيكُمُ ٱلْبَرْقَ خَوْفاً وَطَمَعاً وَيُنَزِّلُ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ مَآءً فَيُحْيِي بِهِ ٱلأَرْضَ بَعْدَ مَوْتِهَا إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لآيَاتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَعْقِلُونَ }

(And of His signs) and of the signs of His divine Oneness and power (is this: He showeth you the lightning) in the sky (for a fear) to the traveller lest the rain comes down and soak his clothes (and for a hope) for the settler lest it waters his fields, (and sendeth down water) rain (from the sky, and thereby) and by means of the rain (quickeneth the earth after her death) after drying up and being exposed to drought. (Lo! Herein) in what I mentioned about the rain (indeed are portents) signs and lessons (for folk who understand) for people who believe that it is from Allah.
