Translation

(They are) the ones that say, (of their brethren slain), while they themselves sit (at ease): "If only they had listened to us they would not have been slain." Say: "Avert death from your own selves, if ye speak the truth."

Tafsir

Those who (alladheena substitutes for the previous alladheena, or constitutes an adjectival qualification [of it]) said to their brothers, in religion, whilst they themselves, had, stayed put, [refraining] from [joining] the struggle, 'Had they, the martyrs at Uhud or those who stayed put with us, obeyed us, they would not have been slain'. Say, to them: 'Then avert, ward off, death from yourselves, if you speak the truth', in that staying put delivers one from it [sc. from death].
