Lesson

Maf-ruuzaa – {appointed (portion)}, it is from Farz, which means ‘to fix, to appoint and to establish’. Here aim from maf-ruuz is ‘appointed, fixed’.
La-‘umanni-yan – (Surely I will arouse desires, put in hopes), it has been derived from the word manni-yah which means ‘wish, desire and longing’.
La-yu-batti-kunna  - (they will cut), this word has been made from the word batak, which means ‘to cut’.
‘An-‘aamun – (the cattle), it is from na-‘ama, which means ‘a beast’, that is to say; the quadruped (animals), which are brought up for working, like camel, ox, cow and horse etc. 

Allaah Almighty is indicating the mankind to observe the wisdom of those people, who by turning from Him, seek support of stones, to which they have enominated like females. It is the last point of limit of their stupidity that they call such things and supplicate from them. Actually they have taken in the deception of Satan and in the screen of those things; they don’t call someone else but Satan. The reality of Satan is, that he (disobedient) has turned his face from the Command of Allaah Almighty and He has driven him out from His Royal Court. When Allaah Almighty determined the Devil as outcast, cursed and rejected, then Satan said, “Now I shall remain in trying my best to mislead the children of Aadam (peace be upon Him) from Your Prescribed Way (the Straight Way), by penetrating in to them, to whom I could control. They will pay gifts and oblations of my name; they will cut the ears of quadruped animals like camels, oxen, cows and horses etc. and set them at their liberty”.
