The designation al-Sâmarî is an adjectival noun
denoting the persons descent or origin. Sâmari was one of the many
Egyptians who had joined the Israelites on their exodus from Egypt
(Ibn ‘Abbâs ). Most probably, the word is derived from shemer. In the
Coptic language, shemer means “foreigner.” Sumrat is a colour
between fair and black. The golden calf symbolizes the glamor of this
life (cf. 20:131)
