Suratun-Nahl – (The Bee) – 16

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast)

(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

   ثُمَّ يَوْمَ ٱلْقِيَٰمَةِ يُخْزِيهِمْ وَيَقُولُ أَيْنَ شُرَكَآءِىَ ٱلَّذِينَ كُنتُمْ تُشَٰٓقُّونَ فِيهِمْ قَالَ ٱلَّذِينَ أُوتُوا۟ٱلْعِلْمَ إِنَّ ٱلْخِزْىَ ٱلْيَوْمَ وَٱلسُّوٓءَ عَلَى ٱلْكَٰفِرِينَ 27


27.  Then on the Day of Resurrection He will disgrace them and will say: Where are My partners, for whose sake ye opposed (My Guidance)? Those who have been given knowledge will say: Disgrace this Day and evil are upon the disbelievers- 27.  Summa  Yawmal-Qiyaa-mati  Yukhziihim  wa  yaquulu  ‘ayna  shurakaaa-‘I-yallaziina  kuntum  tushaaaq-quuna  fiihim.  Qaalal-laziina  ‘uutul-‘ilma  ‘in-nal-  khizyal-Yawma  wassuuu-‘a  ‘alal-kaafiriin.




Yukhzii – (He will disgrace), it is from the word ‘ikh-zaa-‘un, which has been derived from khiz-yun. Khiz-yun means “disgrace, infamy”. ‘Ikh-zaa-‘un means – to disgrace.


Tushaaaq-quuna – (you used to oppose), origins of this word are mash-shaaqatun and shiqaaqun. These both words have come out from shaqqun, which means “of one side, opposite, splitting”. Mash-shaaqatun means “to get ready for opposing the other”.


On the Day of Resurrection, Allah Almighty will disgrace them and will say: Where are your (false) worshipped, for the sake of whom you used to oppose, and to whom you used to ascribe plural with Me? At that time, they will not be able to reply this question. Eventually, such people; to whom Allah Almighty had given knowledge of the truth, and who used to forbid the wicked people from ascribing plurality to Allah Almighty, will say: Today is the Day of disgrace for the disbelievers.
