Asad 78 This may refer either to the physical darkness which often accompanies volcanic eruptions and earthquakes (which, as shown in 7:91, overtook the people of Madyan), or to the spiritual darkness and gloom which comes in the wake of belated regrets.

Yusuf Ali 3220 Perhaps a shower of ashes and cinders accompanying a volcanic eruption. If these people were the same as the Midianites, there was also an earthquake. See vii. 91 and n. 1063.

Yusuf Ali 3221 It must have been a terrible day of wholesale destruction-earthquake, volcanic eruption, lava, cinders and ashes and rumbling noises to frighten those whose death was not instantaneous.
