* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ إِن نَّشَأْ نُنَزِّلْ عَلَيْهِمْ مِّنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ آيَةً فَظَلَّتْ أَعْنَاقُهُمْ لَهَا خَاضِعِينَ }

If We will We will send down to them a sign from the heaven before which their necks will remain fa-zallat although grammatically in the past tense is being used in the sense of the imperfect tense bowed in humility and they will believe since ‘necks’ are described as ‘bowed in humility’ a status which in fact refers to those who possess them the adjectival form khādi‘ūn ‘bowed in humility’ used therein is the one normally used for rational beings.
