Sura 77
Aya 11
وَإِذَا الرُّسُلُ أُقِّتَت

Ahmed Ali

And when the time comes for raising the little girls (buried alive)1
  • Rusul here is not the plural of rasul, but is a singular feminine noun, and means the little girl who does not yet cover her head. See Taj al ‘urus which says that jariyatun rusul means this little girl. See also 81:8-9 where the questioning of such innocent girls is mentioned. Here its time is determined.
