* تفسير Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

{ وَٱخْتِلاَفِ ٱللَّيْلِ وَٱلنَّهَارِ وَمَآ أَنَزَلَ ٱللَّهُ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ مَّن رِّزْقٍ فَأَحْيَا بِهِ ٱلأَرْضَ بَعْدَ مَوْتِهَا وَتَصْرِيفِ ٱلرِّيَاحِ ءَايَٰتٌ لِّقَوْمٍ يَعْقِلُونَ }

(And the difference of night and day) and in the alternation of night and day, the increase and decrease of their duration, their coming and going, are a sign and lesson for you, (and the provision that Allah sendeth down from the sky) of rain (and thereby) by means of the rain (quickeneth the earth after her death) after her dryness and exposure to drought are also lessons and signs for you, (and the ordering of the winds) right and left, north and south, as a punishment and as mercy, (are portents) signs and lessons (for a people who have sense) for people who believe they are from Allah.
