Sura 74
Aya 20
ثُمَّ قُتِلَ كَيفَ قَدَّرَ

Ali Unal

Yea, be away from God’s mercy!1 how he calculated!
  • The original of the initial phrases in the last two verses, interpreted as, Be away from God’s mercy, and Yea, may God preserve him from the evil eye!, is QuTiLa. It also has a figurative, derisive meaning, which is, May God preserve him from the evil eye! This figurativewhich, in fact, is used to say,, “How badly he did it, but in an affected manner as if he knew everything and did well whatever he does!” seems to be more apt in the second case.
