فِى مَقۡعَدِ صِدۡقٍ عِندَ مَلِيكٍ مُّقۡتَدِرٍ

Translation

In an Assembly of Truth, in the Presence of a Sovereign Omnipotent.<br/>

Tafsir

in an abode of truth, a place of truth, wherein there is no idle talk or cause for sin - (the collective noun [maq'ad] is meant here; a variant reading has maqaa'id, 'abodes'), in other words, they are in congregations in the Paradise that are free from idle talk and cause for sin, in contrast to the congregations of this world, which are rarely free from such things (syntactically, this statement is considered a second predicate and also a substitution; it [the 'abode'] may be understood as being 'one of truth' regardless of whether one reads the substitution as being of the part [for the whole] or otherwise); before a King (maleek: this form is hyperbolic, that is to say, One of a mighty and vast kingdom) [Who is] Omnipotent, Powerful, Whom nothing can thwart, namely, God, exalted be He ('inda indicates [glorious] rank and closeness to His bounty, exalted be He).
