According to Tafsir al-Jalalain this word is a circumstantial qualifier (hal) and is mansub not majrur. Note that the word ayatu before it is in raf`. I've also checked in another i`rab work and it says the same:

I agree. If it is an ADJective (sifah) what is the MAUSUF?

It should be relabelled:

N - accusative feminine plural indefinite noun.

And on the Arabic side: اسم منصوب
