103:3 Save those who believe and do good works, and exhort one another to truth and exhort one another to endurance. (Pickthall)
إِلَّا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالْحَقِّ وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالصَّبْرِ
LAM (لَمْ) = PAST TENSE NEGATION PARTICLE*(lam, mim)
*This particle followed by a present tense verb negates and puts both in the past tense, as in the example below. "Tara" ("you see") in the example is the present tense, but putting "lam" before it causes it to considered in the past tense and negated. So "you see" becomes "you did not see."
A lam tara kayfa fa`ala rubbuka bi ashabi al-fil
100:9 Has thou not seen how thy Lord dealt with the owners of the elephant?
