Title: Question Regarding 33:59
Post by: Layth on September 15, 2003, 05:10:18 AM
Peace all,

I need a quick opinoin...

- Is 33:59 talking about 'lengthening garments' so as to be recognized, or about drawing a cloak around ones self?.

peace laytth

I thought all arabs wore long garments or is the long garment a modern inventiongoing back only 1000 years and if arabs always wore  long garments then the verse could not be talking about the lenght of garment but about some thing else.

Please remember I dont understand Arabic. I think the following is correct:

AALAYHINNA

An-Nisa (The Women)> [4:15]
Yusuf (Joseph)> [12:31]
Al-Nour (The Light)> [24:60]
Al-Ahzab (The Confederates)> [33:49][33:59][33:55]
At-Talaq (The Divorce) > [65:6]

From Lane:
was/became high/lofty/elevated, become over/upon/across it, overlay/overspread, rise above in height, overcome/subdue, to exalt/magnify oneself, bulky/tall, great in respect of estimation/rank/dignity/nobility, addition over/above, put down

This entry was rather long for some reason.
