وَإِن يُرِيدُواْ خِيَانَتَكَ فَقَدْ خَانُواْ اللّهَ مِن قَبْلُ فَأَمْكَنَ مِنْهُمْ وَاللّهُ عَلِيمٌ حَكِيمٌ
Wain yureedoo khiyanataka faqad khanoo Allaha min qablu faamkana minhum waAllahu AAaleemun hakeemun

The Aya says:
And if they seek to betray you (singular) then they had betrayed Allah before so He made secure/ enabled from them and Allah is knowing, wise.

My personal note:
The Aya reassures the prophet yet another time not to worry about potential betrayal from the side of the freed captives for they had done that before against Allah and Allah secured his followers and enabled them from them. So, there should not be fear or paranoia in a sense from doing the right and good thing and Allah takes care of the matters of protection of the believers and of the protection of His religion.

There is an interesting twist in that the Aya ended in Knowing, wise rather than the more common usage of dominantly strong, wise. Here, it is probably to reassure the prophet and the believers that nothing happens without his knowledge and He allows to happen for a reason in His wisdom. Allah is still dominantly strong and will also overpower and annul all the negative schemes of those who do them.

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ قُل لِّمَن فِي أَيْدِيكُم مِّنَ الأَسْرَى إِن يَعْلَمِ اللّهُ فِي قُلُوبِكُمْ خَيْرًا يُؤْتِكُمْ خَيْرًا مِّمَّا أُخِذَ مِنكُمْ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ وَاللّهُ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ

Ya ayyuha alnnabiyyu qul liman fee aydeekum mina alasra in yaAAlami Allahu fee quloobikum khayran yutikum khayran mimma okhitha minkum wayaghfir lakum waAllahu ghafoorun raheemun
The Aya says:
O you the prophet say to those in your (plural) hands of the captives: “If Allah knows for fact in your hearts goodness, He will give you better than was taken from you and forgive you and Allah is forgiving, merciful”

My personal note:
The Aya carries a message to the captives of war in the hands of the Muslims after the battle of Badr. It basically tells them to look deep in their hearts and if they see goodness then it reassures them that Allah will give them a better compensation for their losses, whether they were physical, mental or monetary. It is telling them not to be bitter or dwell upon their losses but to be honest in their hearts and in their relationship with God.

In another subtle message, it tells the believers not to close their hearts to those “enemies” for they may turn around and become their brothers one day. So, the animosity should never be personalized or internalized or be made intractable. They fought for the freedom and the survival of their very young muslim state and those people who they fought and caught on that day may become their colleagues tomorrow and they should have a place in their hearts for them.

And this is what happened for eventually the majority of those captives of the battle became muslims at some point in the future.

Fakuloo mimma ghanimtum halalan tayyiban waittaqoo Allaha inna Allaha ghafoorun raheemun

The Aya says:
Therefore eat from what you have acquired, permitted, good and be mindful of Allah. Indeed, Allah is forgiving, merciful.

My personal note:
The Aya continues after it admonished the muslims for taking the prisoners of war and asking for their ransom. It continues that Allah now allowed them to benefit from the ransom and gains that they acquired and therefore they become permitted and good for them to use. It also reminded them that Allah is always forgiving merciful and graceful for most of our transgressions.

Translation of the transliterated words:
Fakuloo: then eat

لَّوْلاَ كِتَابٌ مِّنَ اللّهِ سَبَقَ لَمَسَّكُمْ فِيمَا أَخَذْتُمْ عَذَابٌ عَظِيمٌ
Lawla kitabun mina Allahi sabaqa lamassakum feema akhathtum AAathabun AAatheemun

The Aya says:
Except for an ordinance from Allah that had already preceded then would have hit you (plural) ,by what you took, great punishment.

My personal note:

The aya talks that that they would have been punished for taking the captives of way but there was already an ordinance from Allah that protected them from the punishment and this ordinance could have been an ordinance of forgiving them for any wrongdoing they may do or the ordinance that in the future Allah will allow them to have prisoners of war or both. However the bottom line is that they were forgiven and not punished.

Translation of the transliterated words:

Lawla: if not/ except for
Kitabun: a book/ the collection of knowledge/ an already made decision/ an ordinance
Note: the root K-T-B and it means putting things together as in grouping the herd together or closing the lips or writing (the most common use), because in writing, one puts the letters and the ideas together. KITABUN means, the process of writing or the book or anything related to it from the ideas to the ink and paper to the place where all is put together. In a sense, it points to the collection of knowledge and information that are communicated. In this context it is pointing to already made decision.

The Aya says:
It was not for a prophet to take captives until he is firmly established in the land. You (plural) aim for the offerings of this life and Allah aims for the next one and Allah is dominantly strong, wise.
My personal note:
The Aya comes after the first battle between the muslims and the people of Mecca when the muslims won and took captives of war. The Aya remanded the prophet for taking captives of war and that was not the best thing to do at the time until he is more established in the land. So, it applies mainly and possibly only to that situation.

The Aya reminds the muslims that they should aim for the next life rather than getting distracted with the offerings of this life. It also reassures them that this is coming from Allah who is powerful but also wise. So, there is wisdom in this decision although we may not be able to grasp it.
Translation of the transliterated words:

Now Allah lightened from you (plural) and knew that there is weakness in you so if there be a hundred disciplined they beat two hundred and if there be of you a thousand they beat two thousand by Allah's permission and Allah is with the disciplined.
My personal note:
The weakness here can encompass many areas as in lack of preparation and strength and so on. The message is still the same and that Allah supports the ones who are patient, self-restrained, deliberate and disciplined in their actions.

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ حَرِّضِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ عَلَى الْقِتَالِ إِن يَكُن مِّنكُمْ عِشْرُونَ صَابِرُونَ يَغْلِبُواْ مِئَتَيْنِ وَإِن يَكُن مِّنكُم مِّئَةٌ يَغْلِبُواْ أَلْفًا مِّنَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ بِأَنَّهُمْ قَوْمٌ لاَّ يَفْقَهُونَ

The Aya says:
O you the prophet, exhort the faithful to the fighting. If there be of you twenty who are persevering they triumph over two hundred and if there be of you 100 they triumph over 1000 of the ones who rejected. That is by them being a people who do not comprehend.
My personal note:
Here the order to fight is by the order of a leader of the state, the prophet to protect the state from attack by the unbelievers. So, it should not be understood as an order to fight by a mob that is disorganized and without a centralized leadership and executive people in control.

The message from here is that the most essential element that is needed for success in battle is the SABR which is understood as patience/ deliberate actions / disciplined/ persevering all together as elements that are most consistent with triumphing over the other side in battle.
Translation of the transliterated words:
Ya ayyuha: O you

Note: NABIYY is derived from one of two roots either The first is N-B-Hamza and it means news. The other is N-B-Y and it means elevated. The word NABIYY means a prophet, and it could be because the prophet brings news or that he is elevated over others or both.

the ones who bring safety/ trust/ the faithful

Note: ALMUMINEENA is derived from the root Hamza-M-N and it means safety. Conceptually, it can also be extended to trust as well, because we feel safe in the entity we trust. ALMUMINEENA means: those who cause safety and trust to themselves and others in short the faithful.

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ حَسْبُكَ اللّهُ وَمَنِ اتَّبَعَكَ مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ
Ya ayyuha alnnabiyyu hasbuka Allahu wamani ittabaAAaka mina almumineena

The Aya says:
O you the prophet: The one to count on for you is Allah and those who joined you among the faithful.

My personal note:
The Aya carries two potential understandings that are not mutual exclusive and one of those understandings predominates:
1- Allah is the one for you to count on and He is also the one for the faithful to count on.
2- Allah is the one for you to count on as well as the ones who joined you amongst the faithful.
Both understandings are correct but one will still need to keep in mind that the second understanding carries within it that Allah is the one for them to count on. This is essential for the believers because no matter how lonely and isolated and lacking of support from other people they may feel, then Allah is more than enough to replace all their other deficiencies and that is because Allah alone is way more than enough for each and every one of us all that time. Praise be to Him.

Translation of the transliterated words:

Ya ayyuha: O you
Alnnabiyyu: the prophet
Note: NABIYY is derived from one of two roots either The first is N-B-Hamza and it means news. The other is N-B-Y and it means elevated. The word NABIYY means a prophet, and it could be because the prophet brings news or that he is elevated over others or both.
hasbuka : enough for you/ enough for you to count on

Waallafa bayna quloobihim law anfaqta ma fee alardi jameeAAan ma allafta bayna quloobihim walakinna Allaha allafa baynahum innahu AAazeezun hakeemun
The Aya says:
And He caused compassion between their hearts. Had you (singular) spent all what is on/in earth you would not have caused compassion between their hearts but Allah caused compassion between them. He indeed is dominantly strong, wise.
My personal note:
The Aya continues with the other things that Allah gave to the prophet upon him be peace and that is he supported him with the believers who had compassion and closeness between them even though that task would have been so difficult to achieve without Allah’s help.

In this is an important message to the believers that if they are following the message correctly then they should have love and compassion towards each other.
Translation of the transliterated words:

Waallafa: and He caused affection/ and He brought together/ He united
Note: WA is a letter that links what is before with what is after.

Note: the root is N-F-Qaf. To explain it I use another derivative NAFAQ which means Tunnel. The tunnel is connection underground from one place to another.

The Aya says:
And they seek to trick you (singular) then Allah is enough for you. He is the one who lent you a hand with His support and with the faithful.

My personal note:
The Aya continues in reassuring the prophet upon him be peace and also any one of us not to worry about the potential tricks that may happen. This is because Allah is enough of a support for the faithful. The Aya reminded the prophet that Allah supported him in many ways including providing him with the believers to be around him. So a faithful person lives in the hope of the help from Allah and his support, not the fear or suspicion of the others.

Translation of the transliterated words:

Wain janahoo lilssalmi faijnah laha watawakkal AAala Allahi innahu huwa alssameeAAu alAAaleemu

The Aya says:
And if they tilt to peace then tilt to it, and put your trust in Allah. He indeed is the listening, knowing.

My personal note:
This confirms that the previous aya was about deterrence whereas this one confirms that if the enemy tilts to peace then that is the move that the muslims should do and that they put their trust and guarantee with Allah and therefore they should not let unfounded suspicions stop in their way of making peace.

Translation of the transliterated words:
Wain: and if
Janahoo: they tilted
Note: the root is J-N-Ha and it means wing or side in the concrete. The Conceptual meaning is related and points to a tilt one way or another. JANAHOO is an action that is completed. It means: the action of tiltiing happened by the subject (third person singular) as part of the conditional.

وَأَعِدُّواْ لَهُم مَّا اسْتَطَعْتُم مِّن قُوَّةٍ وَمِن رِّبَاطِ الْخَيْلِ تُرْهِبُونَ بِهِ عَدْوَّ اللّهِ وَعَدُوَّكُمْ وَآخَرِينَ مِن دُونِهِمْ لاَ تَعْلَمُونَهُمُ اللّهُ يَعْلَمُهُمْ وَمَا تُنفِقُواْ مِن شَيْءٍ فِي سَبِيلِ اللّهِ يُوَفَّ إِلَيْكُمْ وَأَنتُمْ لاَ تُظْلَمُونَ

The aya says:
And prepare for them what you can of power and of mounted horses, you instill awe by it in Allah’s enemies and your enemies and others short of them. You (plural) do not know them however Allah knows them. And whatever you spend in Allah’s path will be rendered back to you, and you will not be shortchanged.
My personal note:
The Aya uses the AAaduww that was translated as enemy. However, the term carries with it someone who is an aggressor or a transgressor so an enemy in a relatively non peaceful way. The Aya also links this enemy as being an enemy of Allah and of the muslim community of Medina and therefore it brings to their attention not to be bogged down into minor interpersonal issues and look at the bigger picture and bigger threats at hand.

The Aya also brings about the most important point of buildup of power and mounted horses is that to instill fear and awe in the heart of any one who is interested in attacking that Muslim community. So, the main purpose is deterrence rather than a means to attack others.

Translation of the transliterated words:


WaaAAiddoo: and prepare
Note: WA is for the start of a sentence. aAAiDDOO is derived from the root Ain-D-D and it means counting. Conceptually, it takes the meaning of counting in addition to preparing what is needed because this includes counting.

waAAaduwwakum: and your enemy/ and also your enemy
Note: WA is a letter that links what is before with what is after. This link is through inclusion, either one is included in the other or they are all included in the bigger sentence or bigger picture. WA often corresponds with “and/ addition” but the more encompassing meaning is in inclusion one in another or all in a bigger picture or sentence. AAaDUWWAKUM is derived from the root Ain-D-W and it means running or overstepping boundaries since the running is a form of overstepping a boundary.

Wama: and what
Tunfiqoo: you (plural) spend
Note: the root is N-F-Qaf. To explain it I use another derivative NAFAQ which means Tunnel. The tunnel is connection underground from one place to another. Therefore the essence of the word Tunnel is to “let Good/Useful things go to others under cover”. TUNFIQOO is an action that is completed or will be completed. It means: the action of spending is happening or will be happening by the subject (second person plural)

It takes the meaning of path or even the trip on the path.
Allahi: Allah
Yuwaffa: dues will be given

Ilaykum: to you
Waantum: and you
la tuthlamoona: will not be shortchanged.
Note: la is for negation of the action that is coming. TUTHLAMOONA is derived from the root THA-L-M and it means darkness in the most concrete form.

وَلاَ يَحْسَبَنَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ سَبَقُواْ إِنَّهُمْ لاَ يُعْجِزُونَ
Wala yahsabanna allatheena kafaroo sabaqoo innahum la yuAAjizoona

The Aya says:
And the ones who rejected should not think that they have succeeded. Verily they cannot push back.

My personal note:
This Aya is a message to those who reject Allah’s message and see some success at a particular time. It tells them not to be too happy of the short term gain for the end they are incapable of overcoming what Allah has in store for them in this life and the next.

In this is a message to all humanity not to resist Allah’s will because He will always be on top. So, the only place to run to, if we believe that Allah is angry with us, is to Him. This is because He will always accept us back and love us back.

Translation of the transliterated words:

Waimma takhafanna min qawmin khiyanatan fainbith ilayhim AAala sawain inna Allaha la yuhibbu alkhaineena

The Aya says:
And if you(singular) fear betrayal from a group then openly disengage them with fairness. Indeed Allah does not like the treasonous.

My personal note:
This Aya is an important rule of conduct related to how Muslims should treat other people and groups. The rule is that if you fear or suspect a breaking of an oath or betrayal from a person or a group then you should move away from oath or deal that you did with them and very importantly inform them of that breakup. Basically, you never betray them back but do everything in clarity, fairness and in openness and break the oath in openness.

Related to this is an order from the prophet upon him be peace to a man who was betrayed by someone. The prophet said: “Do keep your responsibility of the safe keep and do not betray the one who betrayed you.”

Translation of the transliterated words:

Waimma: and if
Takhafanna: you (singular) fear/ suspect
Note: the root is KH-W-F and it means fear or worry. TAKHAFANNA is an action that is being completed or will be completed. It means: the action of fearing is happening or will be happening by the subject (second person singular). In this context it is pointing to fear in the form of suspicion that something is not right with the other group

Min: from
Qawmin: a people/ a group
Note: QAWMIN is derived from the root Qaf-Y-M and it means standing or standing upright. QAWMIN are the people that stand together and that makes the group or people or nation, basically, any group of people that stand together or form a group.
Khiyanatan: treason/ betrayal
Note: the root is KH-W-N and it means misleading or treason or betrayal. Conceptually treason is encompassed in misleading, as in misleading the person to trust someone who is not worthy of trust. It also depends on the context of how the betrayal and misleading happens. KHIYANATAN means treason or betrayal
Fainbith: then abandon/ then let go
Note: Fa means therefore or so or then. INBITH is derived from the root N-B-TH and it means putting something aside. One concrete word is NABEETH and it means wine, because the grape or date juice is put aside to become wine. INBITH is an order to a singular to let go or put aside or abandon.
Ilayhim: to the/ towards them
AAala: upon
Sawain: fairness/ balance
Note: the root is S-W-Y and it means position of balance or equality. SAWAIN here means fairness and balance.
Inna: indeed
Allaha: Allah
la: not
Yuhibbu: loves/ like
Note: the root is Ha-B-B and it means in concrete seed. This word also means love. As if the seed is the product of love or the love will end up in a seed. YUHIBBU is an action that is derived from the root and that is being completed or will be completed. It means: the action of loving is happening or will be happening by the subject (third person singular pointing to Allah) of the object (ALMUFSIDEEN= the ones who cause damage/ harm). LA YUHIBBU means: He does not love.
Alkhaineena: the treacherous/ the ones who betray
Note: the root is KH-W-N and it means misleading or treason or betrayal. Conceptually treason is encompassed in misleading, as in misleading the person to trust someone who is not worthy of trust. It also depends on the context of how the betrayal and misleading happens. ALKHAINEEN are the ones who betray or who are treacherous.

فَإِمَّا تَثْقَفَنَّهُمْ فِي الْحَرْبِ فَشَرِّدْ بِهِم مَّنْ خَلْفَهُمْ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَذَّكَّرُونَ

Faimma tathqafannahum fee alharbi fasharrid bihim man khalfahum laAAallahum yaththakkaroona

The Aya says:
So when you (singular) take hold of them in the war then scatter by them whoever is behind them in the hope they remind themselves.

My personal note:
The aya sends a message to the prophet upon him be peace to do things to the ones who he catches in war that would discourage others from fighting him and make them scatter away. The exact thing of what to do is not mentioned here and is open to what works best for every individual case.

Translation of the transliterated words:
Faimma: so if
Tathqafannahum: you (singular) surround them/ you take hold of them
Note: the root is TH-Qaf-F and it means in concrete the tool that surrounds the spear to make it straight. This, therefore means surrounding something and having the ability to understand it and manipulate it. TATHQAFANNAHUM is an action that is happening or will be happening. It means: the action of taking hold of the object (HUM= them) is happening or will be happening as part of the conditional to the subject (second person singular)
Fee: in
Alharbi: the war/ the battle
Note: ALHARB is derived from the root HA-R-B and it means war or lack of peace. Some concrete uses of the words are: the money of the person, the best room or most secure room in the house and so on. The concept is about lack of peace and about threatening what is cherished. So HARB does not have to be only violent but it is potentially violent.
Fasharrid: then scatter away/ then make run away
Note: FA means then or therefore or so. SHARRID is derived from the root SH-R-D and it means to run away in different directions so running and scattering away from something or somewhere or someone. SHARRID is an order or request addressed to a singular. It means: make them run and scatter away.
Bihim: in them/. by them
Man: who/ whoever
Khalfahum: behind them/ coming after them
Note: the root is KH-L-F and it means behind in time or place or any other plane of thought. For time, it takes the meaning of what happens after or the future. KHALFA means behind or after of. HUM means them.
laAAallahum: perhaps they/ in the hope they
yaththakkaroona: remind themselves/ mention to themselves
Note: the root is TH-K-R and it means mention and remember, at the same time. The concrete word is something running on the tongue as if speaking it. Another concrete word is male or the male organ. The relationship between the two is not very clear and they can be different words that share the sound but have different root. It could be that the male is considered the active organ and that memory is an active process, but that is only a theory. YATHTHAKKAROON is an action that is being completed or will be completed. It means: the action of reminding and mentioning to oneself is happening or will be happening by the subject (third person plural).

الَّذِينَ عَاهَدتَّ مِنْهُمْ ثُمَّ يَنقُضُونَ عَهْدَهُمْ فِي كُلِّ مَرَّةٍ وَهُمْ لاَ يَتَّقُونَ
Allatheena AAahadta minhum thumma yanqudoona AAahdahum fee kulli marratin wahum la yattaqoona

The Aya says:
Those with whom you (singular) made an oath amongst them then they break their oath every time while they don't mind.

My personal note:
The Aya brings more about the attributes of the rejecters that were mentioned in the previous Aya and that is they make oaths and break them on every occasions and they lack consciousness/ mindfulness of Allah. Certainly mindfulness especially of Allah is a very important thing for all humanity.

Translation of the transliterated words:
Allatheena: those who
AAahadta: you (singular) made an oath with
Note: the root is Ain-H-D and it means a promise or a demand to promise or both. It also includes the fulfillment and meeting the promise. AAaHADTA is an action that is completed. It means: the action of making an oath in an interactive manner happened by the subject (second person singular)
Minhum: of them/ amongst them
Thumma: then
Yanqudoona: they renege/ they break
Note: the root is N-Qaf-Dhad and it means in concrete the remains of a building after it’s destruction or becoming uninhabited. This is then used conceptually for anything that is becoming destroyed or unused. NAQDIHIM means their destruction of. The context suggests the destruction of the oath that they gave to God and here it carries the meaning of reneging. YANQUDOONA is an action that is happening or will be happening. It means: the action of reneging or breaking the object (AAaHDAHUM= their oath) is happening or will be happening by the subject (third person plural)
AAahdahum: their oath
Note: the root is Ain-H-D and it means a promise or a demand to promise or both. It also includes the fulfillment and meeting the promise. AAaHDA means oath of. HUM means them.
Fee: in
Kulli: every/ each
Note: KULLI is derived from the root K-L-L and it means the parts put together. This is the concrete and it means all or every or each. It can also be extended conceptually to mean the parts surrounding an entity. KULLI means every, or each.
Marratin: time/ occasion/ pass
Note: MARRATIN is derived from the root M-R-R and it means passing or passage. Some of the concrete words from this root mean bitter plants or just bitter. The relationship between bitter and passing is the fact that the sheep and goats of the Bedouin herders probably passed those plants rather than sticking to them to eat them. MARRATIN means pass/ occasion/ time.
Wahum: while they/ and they
la yattaqoona: do not mind/ do not act consciously (of Allah)
Note: LA is for negation of the action that comes after. YATTAQOON is derived from the root W-Qaf-y and it means guarding or protecting. Since the best guarding is through consciousness then it means consciousness. YATTAQOON is an action that is being completed or will be completed. It means: the action of acting consciously is happening or will be happening by the subject (third person plural)

إِنَّ شَرَّ الدَّوَابِّ عِندَ اللّهِ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ فَهُمْ لاَ يُؤْمِنُونَ
Inna sharra alddawabbi AAinda Allahi allatheena kafaroo fahum la yuminoona

The Aya says:
Indeed, the worst of the things that walk on earth are those who rejected, therefore they do not trust (in Allah)

My personal note:
Indeed without trust or Iman life is impossible because there will always be things that you have to accept without completely finding your answers yourself and if you want to find your answers yourself then you are not going to move muc. And the trust in Allah is the one that we all need most.

Translation of the transliterated words:
Inna: indeed
Sharra: worse of/ most ugly
Note: SHARRA is derived from the root SH-R-R and it means bad or no good or harm. One of the concrete uses of the words is the fire that is flying around and can ignite the fire in another place. SHARRIN means harm or bad or not good or worse as the context here suggests. SHARR means worse of
Alddawabbi: the animals/ the moving creatures/ the entities that move on the ground
Note: the root is D-B-B and it means when the entity moves in or on the earth lightly or according to it’s appropriate pace. ALDDAWABI are any entities that move on the earth and that includes animals, humans and insects.
AAinda: at
Allahi: Allah’s
Allatheena: those who
Kafaroo: rejected (Allah and His message)/ discarded
Note: the root is K-F-R and it means cover or bury in the ground, as in put the seed in the ground and cover it. This is then used conceptually for many purposes as in discarding and rejecting as well as burying. KAFARO is an action that is completed. It means: the action of rejection or discarding of the object (not declared, but understood from the context to point to God and/or the message) happened by the subject (third person plural).
Fahum: so they
la yuminoona: do not trust/ do not make themselves safe (In Allah)
Note: LA is for negation of the action that comes next. YUMINOON is derived from the root Hamza-M-N and it means safety. Conceptually, it can also be extended to trust as well, because we feel safe in the entity we trust. LA YUMINOON is a negation of action that is happening or will be happening. It means the action of not becoming safe or trusting is happening by the subject (third person plural).

كَدَأْبِ آلِ فِرْعَوْنَ وَالَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِمْ كَذَّبُواْ بآيَاتِ رَبِّهِمْ فَأَهْلَكْنَاهُم بِذُنُوبِهِمْ وَأَغْرَقْنَا آلَ فِرْعَونَ وَكُلٌّ كَانُواْ ظَالِمِينَ
Kadabi ali firAAawna waallatheena min qablihim kaththaboo biayati rabbihim faahlaknahum bithunoobihim waaghraqna ala firAAawna wakullun kanoo thalimeena
The Aya says:
As the practice of the people of Pharaoh and those before them, they declared their nurturing Lord’s signs false, so we make them perish because of their sins and we drowned the people of Pharaoh. And each of them was unjust.
My personal note:
This Aya may look as a repeat of the one that just came before it. However, while the first one mentioned rejection, this one mentions declaring the signs false and therefore establishes both as forms of injustice putting the people who perpetrate them at risk of the punishment of Allah.
Translation of the transliterated words:
Kadabi: As habit of/ as practice of
Note: KA means as or like. DABI is derived from the root D-Hamza-B and it means habit or practice. DABI means: practice of or habit of.
Ali: people of
Note: the root is Hamza-W-L and it means ultimate as a concept and takes different shapes and specific meanings according to the situation.

firAAawna: Pharaoh
waallatheena: and those who

Kaththaboo: they declared untrue/ they rejected
Note: KATHTHABOO is derived from the root K-TH-B and it means a untrue.

It means: the action of making an object (Bialhaqqi= in the binding truth/right) untrue happened by the subject (third person plural). In this context, “making the binding truth untrue” means actually declaring it untrue or denying truthfulness or strongly rejecting it .
biayati: in signs of
Note: BI signifies an attachment or close linkage between what is before and what is after it. In a Verbal sentence it can mean attachment to the action or to the subject as it does the action. This attachment can then signify many things according to the verb and to the sentence and so on. AYAT is derived from the root Hamza-Y-H and it means sign. AYATI means signs of.
rabbihim: Their nurturing lord
Note: RABBIHIM is derived from the root R-B-B and it means nurturing and Lordship as two components of the meaning that can be present together or one at a time according to the context of the sentence. RABBI is nurturing Lord of. HIM means them.
Faahlaknahum: So we caused them to perish/ we made them perish/ We destroyed
Note: FA means so or therefore or then. AHLAKNA is derived from the root H-L-K and it means dried and dead plant. This is the concrete and the abstract means death and perdition. AHLAKNA is an action that is completed. It means: the action of causing the object’s (Hum= them) death or perdition happened by the subject (first person plural).
Bithunoobihim: by their sins
Note: BI signifies an attachment or close linkage between what is before and what is after it. In a Verbal sentence it can mean attachment to the action or to the subject as it does the action. This attachment can then signify many things according to the verb and to the sentence and so on. In this sentence it signifies tools of why they were taken. THUNOOBIHIM is derived from the root TH-N-B and it means tail if spelled THANAB and sin if spelled THANB. It is difficult to know if the two meanings are related. THUNOOBI means sins of. HIM means them.
Waaghraqna: and We caused drowning
Note: WA is a letter that links what is before with what is after. This link is through inclusion, either one is included in the other or they are all included in the bigger sentence or bigger picture. AGHRAQNA is derived from the root Ghain-R-Qaf and it means drowning in water. AGHRAQNA is an action that is completed. It means: the action of making the object (Allatheen = those who) drown happened by the subject (first person plural).
Ala: people of

Thalimeena: unjust/ transgressors/ putting things out of place
Note: the root is THA-L-M and it means darkness in the most concrete form. This word also takes the meaning of misplacing right from wrong and transgression or injustice since injustice is displacing right from wrong and a decision made in darkness. ALTHTHALIMEEN are the unjust or the one who misplaces right from wrong intentionally and that is the one who decides and acts in darkness.
