Translation

So warn mankind of the Day when the Wrath will reach them: then will the wrong-doers say: "Our Lord! respite us (if only) for a short term: we will answer Thy call, and follow the messengers!" "What! were ye not wont to swear aforetime that ye should suffer no decline?

Tafsir

And warn, make [them] have fear, O Muhammad may peace and salutation be upon him, mankind, the disbelievers, of the day when chastisement will come upon them, namely, the Day of Resurrection, and those who did evil, who disbelieved, will say, 'Our Lord, give us respite, by returning us to the world, for a brief while, that we might respond to Your call, by affirming [Your] Oneness, and follow the messengers'. It is then said to them in rebuke: 'But did you not use to swear formerly, in the world, that for you there would be no passing [away]? (min zawaalin: min is extra) from this [world] to the Hereafter?
