Translation

When it is said to them, "Prostrate to (Allah) Most Gracious!", they say, "And what is (Allah) Most Gracious? Shall we prostrate to that which thou commandest us?" And it increases their flight (from the Truth).

Tafsir

And when it is said to them, to the disbelievers of Mecca, 'Prostrate yourselves before the Compassionate One', they say, 'And what is the Compassionate One? Should we prostrate ourselves to whatever you bid us' (ta'murunaa; or read ya'murunaa, '[whatever] he bids us') - [in both cases] the one bidding is Muhammad may peace and salutation be upon him - when we do not know who He is? No! And it, this that is said to them, increases their aversion, to faith.
