Translation

It is Allah who creates you and takes your souls at death; and of you there are some who are sent back to a feeble age, so that they know nothing after having known (much): for Allah is All-Knowing, All-Powerful.

Tafsir

And God has created you, when you were nothing, then He takes you [in death], when your terms [of life] are concluded; and there are some among you who are relegated to the most abject stage of life, that is, the most diminished, because of old-age and senility, so that he knows nothing after [having possessed] some knowledge. 'Ikrima said, 'Whoever recites Al-Qur'an will not come to such a predicament'. God is Knowing, of how to manage [the affairs of] His creation, Powerful, in [doing] what He will.
