Translation

We granted not to any man before thee permanent life (here): if then thou shouldst die, would they live permanently?

Tafsir

When the disbelievers said that Muhammad may peace and salutation be upon him would die, the following was revealed: And We did not assign to any human being before you immortality, permanence [of life] in this world. What, if you [are fated to] die, will they be immortal?, in it? No! (The last sentence constitutes the [syntactical] locus of the interrogative of denial).
