Translation

And if We had inflicted on them a penalty before this, they would have said: "Our Lord! If only Thou hadst sent us a messenger, we should certainly have followed Thy Signs before we were humbled and put to shame."

Tafsir

Had We destroyed them with a chastisement before him, before [the coming of] Muhammad may peace and salutation be upon him the Messenger, they would have said, on the Day of Resurrection: 'Our Lord, if only You had sent us a messenger, so that we might have followed those signs of Yours, given to the messengers [to convey], before we were [thus] abased, at the Resurrection, and disgraced?', in Hell.
