رُدُّوهَا عَلَيَّ فَطَفِقَ مَسْحاً بِٱلسُّوقِ وَٱلأَعْنَاقِ
-Sâd ( ص )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

Then he set about slashing, with his sword, [their] legs (al-sūq is the plural of sāq) and necks, in other words, he slaughtered them and cut off their legs as an offering [of atonement] to God, exalted be He, for having been distracted by them from the prayer. He gave all the meat thereof as voluntary alms and so God compensated him what was better and faster that these [horses], and this was the wind, which blew at his command as he wished.
