took pride in that which they had been forbidden, We said unto them: Be ye
apes despised and loathed!

Ba-‘iisin – (dreadful,
grievous, hard to bear), this word has been derived from baa-‘as. Baa-‘as means awe, harshness, severity, difficulty.
Khaasi-‘iin – (despised
and loathed) this word is plural of khaasi-‘un,
which has been made from khasun. Khasun
means “avaunt, begone, curse”. Khaasi-‘un
is that individual or animal which is driven out, reproved wherever it goes.
It was described
in the previous verse that the wise individuals of ‘Iilah preached the people of ‘Iilah

Almighty knows the condition of the hearts and He is Aware of the intention of

advice. At last; what happened with them; has been mentioned here.

some of preachers became silent being frustrated from their guidance, We
rescued all of those who forbade them from wicked deeds. But We afflicted those
disobedient people in severe wrath as punishment for their disobedience.
But when, even
then they did not abstain from wrongdoing and their disobedience increased day
by day; then We commanded: Be ye apes and taste the flavor of scorn, contempt and
baseness. This incident has been mentioned in Surah Baqarah also and was explained clearly.
The Children of
Israel knew and understood it properly. Accordingly, the mention of that
incident exists in their Holy Books even till today. The human being should
learn from this story that he should go on that Path without any kind of trick
or deception; with pure intention, which Allah Almighty has fixed for him.
