Verse (29:50), Word 13 - Quranic Grammar


The thirteenth word of verse (29:50) is divided into 3 morphological segments. A conjunction, accusative particle and preventive particle. The prefixed conjunction wa is usually translated as "and". The accusative particle belongs to a special group of words known as inna and her sisters (ان واخواتها). The preventive particle stops inna from taking its normal role in the sentence. Together the segments are known as kāfa wa makfūfa (كافة ومكفوفة).
