Ayah

فَجَعَلۡنَٰهُمۡ سَلَفًا وَمَثَلًا لِّلۡءَاخِرِينَ

Translation

And We made them (a people) of the Past and an Example to later ages.<br/>

Tafsir

And We made them a thing past (salaf, is the plural of saalif, similar [in pattern] to khaadim, khadam) that is to say, a precedent, as a lesson, and an example for others, after them, that they [posterity] might take their predicament as a lesson and so not engage in actions similar to theirs.
