* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ خَٰشِعَةً أَبْصَٰرُهُمْ تَرْهَقُهُمْ ذِلَّةٌ وَقَدْ كَانُواْ يُدْعَوْنَ إِلَى ٱلسُّجُودِ وَهُمْ سَٰلِمُونَ }

With humbled khāshi‘atan is a circumstantial qualifier referring to the person of the verb yud‘awna ‘they are summoned’ that is to say with abject gazes which they do not raise they will be overcast enveloped by abasement; for they had indeed been summoned in this world to prostrate themselves while they were yet sound but they never used to do it by the fact that they never performed prayer.
