Tafsir al-Baghawi                                                        تفسیر البغوی

قَالَ ابْنُ عَبَّاسٍ وَابْنُ مَسْعُودٍ: صَاحَتِ الطير ورمتهم بالحجارة  فَبَعَثَ اللَّهُ رِيحًا فَضَرَبَتِ الْحِجَارَةَ فَزَادَتْهَا شِدَّةً فَمَا وَقَعَ مِنْهَا حَجَرٌ عَلَى رَجُلٍ إِلَّا خَرَجَ مِنَ الْجَانِبِ الْآخَرِ، وَإِنْ وَقَعَ عَلَى رَأْسِهِ خَرَجَ مِنْ دُبُرِهِ.

Sayyiduna Ibn ‘Abbas and Ibn Mas’ood – may Allah be pleased with them – said:  The birds flew and threw stones at them, then Allah Almighty sent wind which increased the force, and when the stones approached anyone of them, if it entered through one side, it came out through the other side.  If it entered through their head it came out through their bottom.

Tafsir al-Qurtubi                                                                                                                         تفسیر القرطبی

في الصحاح: بِحِجارَةٍ مِنْ سِجِّيلٍ قَالُوا: حِجَارَةٌ مِنْ طِينٍ، طُبِخَتْ بِنَارِ جَهَنَّمَ، مَكْتُوبٌ فِيهَا أَسْمَاءُ الْقَوْمِ، لِقَوْلِهِ تَعَالَى: لِنُرْسِلَ عَلَيْهِمْ حِجارَةً مِنْ طِينٍ. مُسَوَّمَةً  [الذاريات: 34 – 33].

It is mentioned in authentic narrations about the verse that the stones were made of clay which were baked in the hellfire, each bore the names of those people, as Allah Almighty has stated:

لِنُرْسِلَ عَلَيْهِمْ حِجارَةً مِنْ طِينٍ. مُسَوَّمَةً

“To throw upon them stones of baked clay. That are kept marked”

(Al-Dhariyat 51, Verse 33-34)

 

وقال عبد الرحمن ابن أَبْزَى: مِنْ سِجِّيلٍ: مِنَ السَّمَاءِ، وَهِيَ الْحِجَارَةُ الَّتِي نَزَلَتْ عَلَى قَوْمِ لُوطٍ.

Abdur Rahman ibn Abza said about the stones that were thrown from above were the same stones that descended on the nation of Sayyiduna Loot – peace be upon him.
