This is 7:78
Faakhathathumu alrrajfatu faasbahoo fee darihim jathimeena
The Aya says:
So, the shaking took them, so they became fallen still in their home.
My personal statement:
The short sentence carried with it the depth of meaning and imaging. The word RAJFAT means shaking which can be because of a tremor, fear or a sound of some sort. In other parts of the Qur’an it mentions a SAYHA= a shout/ a cry which makes the shaking because of some kind of sound more likely than a tremor of the earth and so on.
The ter JATHIM is when the entity falls and stick still to the ground with no movement. So, the imaging is that something caused a shaking and they fell still right then. May Allah protect us from suffering such suffering and help us accept His wisdom lovingly always.
Translation of the transliterated words:
Faakhathathumu: then took them
Note: FA means then or therefore or so. AKHATHATHUM is derived from the root Hamza-KH-TH and it means taking. AKHATHAT is an action that is completed. It means: the action of taking the object (HUM= them) happened by the subject (third person singular).
Alrrajfatu: the tremor/ the tremble/ the shaking
Note: the root is R-J-F and it means a tremor or tremble. It points to shaking because of whatever causes it as either extreme fear or sounds or tremble of the earth and so on. ALRRAJFATU is the shaking.
Faasbahoo: so they became/ so the morning reached them
Note: FA means then or therefore or so. ASBAHOO is derived from the root Sad-B-Ha and it means coming of the morning in concrete. The term can also mean become. On a conceptual level, the two meanings are related since the night becomes day and so forth. ASBAHOO is anb action that is completed. It means: the action of becoming or arrival of the morning to the subject (third person plural) happened
Darihim: their home/ their house/ their territoy
Note: DARI is derived from the root D-W-R and it means to circle around. Conceptually it can be used for a house or any entity that may have a circle around it or that surrounds an entity and so on. DARI in this context means house of. HIM means them and points to the people of Saleh.
Jathimeena: lying still/ fallen on the ground/ fallen still.
Note: the root is J-TH-M and it means when someone falls on the ground and stays there stuck to the ground with no movement. JATHIMEEN means fallen still
Salaam all and have a great day.
