Ayah

مَا تَسۡبِقُ مِنۡ أُمَّةٍ أَجَلَهَا وَمَا يَسۡتَـٔۡخِرُونَ

Translation

No people can hasten their term, nor can they delay (it).<br/>

Tafsir

No community can precede its term, by dying before it, nor be deferred, beyond it (the person [in the second verb yasta'khiroona, 'be deferred'] is masculine, having been feminine [in the first verb tasbiqu, 'precede'] because this [masculine plural] takes into account the [plural masculine] content [of the term 'community']).
