(makaanakum is in the accusative because ilzamoo, 'adhere to', is implied [sc. ilzamoo makaanakum]). You (antum: this emphasises the [second person plural] subject concealed in the implied verb [ilzamoo], and allows for the supplement [that follows]:) and your associates!', that is, the idols. Then We shall make a separation, We shall distinguish, between them, and the believers, as [is stated] in the verse, wa'mtaazoo'l-yawma ayyuhaa'l-mujrimoon, 'Now be separate, you sinners, upon this day!' [Q. 36:59]; and their associates will say, to them: 'It was not us that you were worshipping (maa [of maa-kuntum, 'you were not .'] is for negation; the direct object [iyyaanaa, 'us'] precedes the verb in order [to accord] with the end-rhyme [of Al-Qur'anic verse];
