اِذْ قَالَ مُوْسٰي لِاَہْلِہٖۗ اِنِّىْۗ اٰنَسْتُ نَارًا۝۰ۭ سَاٰتِيْكُمْ مِّنْہَا بِخَــبَرٍ اَوْ اٰتِيْكُمْ بِشِہَابٍ قَبَسٍ لَّعَلَّكُمْ تَصْطَلُوْنَ۝۷
Ith qala moosa liahlihi innee anastu naran saateekum minha bikhabarin aw ateekum bishihabin qabasin laAAallakum tastaloona


Ahmed Ali

(Remember) when Moses said to his family: "I see a fire. I shall bring you news from it, or bring an ember that you may warm yourselves."



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : ((remember) when moses said unto his household) when he became unsure about the way: (lo! i spy afar off a fire) on the left side of the road; stay here (i will bring you tidings thence) news about the right way to take, (or bring to you a borrowed flame that ye may warm yourselves) because this happened in a cold winter.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : mention, when moses said to his family, [to] his wife, during his journey from midian [back] to egypt: ‘assuredly i notice, i see in the distance, a fire. i will bring you news from there, about the [journey’s] route — for he had lost his way — or bring you a firebrand (read as a genitive annexation [bi-shihābi qabasin] as an explication [of shihāb, ‘flame’]; or read without [annexation, bi-shihābin qabasin] meaning, a flame of fire at the end of a wick or a wooden stick) that perhaps you might warm yourselves’, (tastalūn: the tā’ replaces the tā’ of the [8th verbal form] ifta‘ala [sc. istalā]; it derives from salaya or saliya, ‘to be exposed to the blaze of fire’), [that perhaps] you might warm yourselves from the cold.
