The third word of verse (16:82) is divided into 3 morphological segments. A resumption particle, accusative particle and preventive particle. The connective particle fa is usually translated as "then" or "so" and is used to indicate a sequence of events. The accusative particle belongs to a special group of words known as inna and her sisters (ان واخواتها). The preventive particle mā stops inna from taking its normal role in the sentence. Together the segments are known as kāfa wa makfūfa (كافة ومكفوفة).
The analysis above refers to the 82nd
verse of chapter 16 (sūrat
Sahih International: But if they turn away, [O Muhammad] - then only upon you is [responsibility for] clear notification.
