In the following words of the Ḳur. [lxxvii. 11,] وَإِذَا الرُّسُلُ أُقِّتَتْ, اقتت↓ is a dial. form of وُقِّتَتْ, like as أُجُوهٌ is of وُجُوهٌ; (Ṣ;) and the meaning is And when the Apostles shall have one [particular] time assigned to them to decide between the people [to whom they have been sent to preach]: (Zj:) or, shall be collected at their appointed time, on the day of resurrection. (Fr.) This is the general reading: but there are other reading; namely, وُقِّتَتْ, and وُقِتَتْ, (Ṣ, TA,) and وُوقِتَتْ, which last is of the measure فُوعِلَتْ, from المُوَاقَتَةُ. (Ḳ.)
