Ayah

لِّنُحۡۦِىَ بِهِۦ بَلۡدَةً مَّيۡتًا وَنُسۡقِيَهُۥ مِمَّا خَلَقۡنَآ أَنۡعَٰمًا وَأَنَاسِىَّ كَثِيرًا

Translation

That with it We may give life to a dead land, and slake the thirst of things We have created,- cattle and men in great numbers.<br/>

Tafsir

with which We revive a dead land (read maytan, in the softened form, equally valid for the masculine and the feminine, but in the masculine [here] because of the [masculine] noun indicating 'place' [implicit therein]) and We give it, the water, as drink to the many cattle, camels, cows and sheep, and humans We have created (anaasiyy is the plural of insaan: properly it [the plural] should be anaaseen but the [final] noon has been replaced with a yaa', with which the [other] yaa' has been assimilated; or it [anaasiyy] is [simply] the plural of insiyy).
