Verse –166 & 167 of 286, Section – 20 (Part 2)
166. (On the Day) when those who were followed disown those who followed (them), and they behold the doom, and all their aims collapse with them.

166. ‘Iz tabarra-‘allazii-nattu-bi-‘uu minallaziinat-taba-‘uu wa ra-‘a-wul-azaaba wa taqat-ta-‘at bihimul-‘asbaab.
167. Wa qaalal-laziinat-taba-‘uu law ‘anna lanaa karratan- fa-natabarra-‘a minhum kamaa tabarra-‘uu minnaa. Kazaalika yuriihimullaahu ‘a’-maalahum hasaraatin ‘alayhim. Wa maa hum- bi-khaarijiina minan-Naar.
Allah Almighty has narrated a horrible and dreadful sight of the Doomsday. Would that the evildoer Idolaters might think, get it as warning and shun from the evildoings.
On that day the liar religious or spiritual guides who have compelled the common stupid people to follow them, will leave them who followed them and due to following them they had left the straight path. This time will be very frightful and dangerous for those stupid follower obedient disciples that their spiritual guides would have kept themselves aloof from them, means would have been cut, and the doom would be visible in front.
The stupid followers will say, “would that we may go once again back to the (previous) world and adopt displeasure likewise these wicked religious and spiritual guides disowned us but then it will not be possible. Their evil acts will be in front of them in the shape of an afflicted record and there will be no way to get rid of the Hell fire.
allazii-nattu-bi-‘uu – (who were followed) ‘It-tibaa’ is its infinitive mood which means to follow. It signifies towards the religious and spiritual guides who are followed.
al-laziinat-taba-‘uu – (who followed ) that is to say the followers, obedient and disciples of their liar religious and spiritual guides.
