Aya 87
وَأَوحَينا إِلىٰ موسىٰ وَأَخيهِ أَن تَبَوَّآ لِقَومِكُما بِمِصرَ بُيوتًا وَاجعَلوا بُيوتَكُم قِبلَةً وَأَقيمُوا الصَّلاةَ ۗ وَبَشِّرِ المُؤمِنينَ

Ali Quli Qarai

We revealed to Moses and his brother [saying], ‘Settle your people in the city,1 and let your houses face each other,2 and maintain the prayer, and give good news to the faithful.’
  • That is, Bayt al-Maqdis, in accordance with a tradition of Imam al-Ṣādiq (ʿa) (Tafsīr al-Qummī). Alternatively, ‘Provide houses for your people in Egypt.’
  • Or ‘Make your homes places of worship.’
