Quran 19 Verse 52 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Maryam ayat 52, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(19:52) We called out to him from the right side of the Mount,[31] and We drew him near to Us by communing to him in secret,[32]


31. “The right side of the Mount” means the eastern side of the mountain. As Prophet Moses (peace be upon him), on his way from Midian to Egypt, was passing from the southern side of Mountt Toor, the eastern side would lie on his right and the western on his left if he faced the mountain, otherwise a mountain by itself cannot have a right or a left side.

32. See( E.N. 206 of Surah An-Nisa).
