Verse (6:138)

The analysis above refers to the 138th verse of chapter 6 (sūrat l-anʿām):

Sahih International: And they say, "These animals and crops are forbidden; no one may eat from them except whom we will," by their claim. And there are those [camels] whose backs are forbidden [by them] and those upon which the name of Allah is not mentioned - [all of this] an invention of untruth about Him. He will punish them for what they were inventing.

Could we change this to:

N- nominative feminine plural indefinite noun

insted of masculine, since all the markers in the ayah are feminine

wallahu a'alam
