Translation

If the Truth had been in accord with their desires, truly the heavens and the earth, and all beings therein would have been in confusion and corruption! Nay, We have sent them their admonition, but they turn away from their admonition.

Tafsir

And if the truth, namely, Al-Qur'an, had followed their desires, and come to them with [mention of] what they fancied in the way of God having a partner and a child, may God be exalted above such [associations], indeed the skies and the earth and whoever is in them would have been corrupted, they [the skies and the earth] would have deviated from their observed order, because contradictions would ensue, as is usually the case, when there is more than one ruler. Nay, We have brought them their Remembrance, namely, Al-Qur'an, in which they are remembered and honoured, but they are disregardful of their [own] Remembrance.
