  • Can someone translate this word for me please?
     OP - August 13, 2010, 02:42 AM

    This word

    Qad kana lakum “ayatun fi fi-“atayni iltaqata fi-“atun tuqatilu fi sabili Allahi wa-“ukhra kafiratun yarawnahum mithlay-him ra-“ya al-‘ayni wa-Allahu yu-“ayyidu binasrihi man yasha-“u “inna fi dhalika la-“ibratan li-“uli al-“absari
       
       



    I gave you entire line Arabic. Im not sure which one it is in Arabic. But I guessing if you read the whole thing you can understand what the mean of the word "ibrata AL" is

    Thank you Very Much

    'Ibratan' means moral, as in moral of the story. Or lesson, if you will. Could be translated into example, too, but that's a bit different from the context of that sentence.

    He's no friend to the friendless
    And he's the mother of grief
    There's only sorrow for tomorrow
    Surely life is too brief
