Ayah

قُلۡ أَرَءَيۡتُمۡ إِنۡ أَتَىٰكُمۡ عَذَابُهُۥ بَيَٰتًا أَوۡ نَهَارًا مَّاذَا يَسۡتَعۡجِلُ مِنۡهُ ٱلۡمُجۡرِمُونَ

Translation

Say: "Do ye see,- if His punishment should come to you by night or by day,- what portion of it would the sinners wish to hasten?<br/>

Tafsir

Say: 'Have you considered?, [Say] inform me: If His, God's, chastisement comes upon you by night or day, what, part, is there of it, that is, [of] the chastisement, that the sinners, the idolaters, seek to hasten? (an overt noun [al-mujrimoon, 'the sinners'] has replaced the [second person, 'you'] pronominalisation. The interrogative sentence is the response to the conditional, as [in the case where] you might say, 'If I come to you, what would you give me?'; the intention here is to provoke terror [in them], in other words: how awful is that which they seek to hasten!)
