Translation

Then, when he turned his face towards (the land of) Madyan, he said: "I do hope that my Lord will show me the smooth and straight Path."

Tafsir

And when he turned his face towards Midian, in the direction thereof - and this [Midian] was the town of [the prophet] Shu'ayb, eight day's journeying from Egypt, [so] named after Midian son of Abraham; he [Moses] did not know the route to it - he said, 'Perhaps my Lord will show me the right way', that is to say, which route to follow, in other words, the simplest route to it. God thus sent forth to him an angel with a goat, which he [Moses] set off following towards it [the town].
