Translation

So verily thou canst not make the dead to hear, nor canst thou make the deaf to hear the call, when they show their backs and turn away.

Tafsir

And so you cannot make the dead hear, nor can you make the deaf hear the call when (read al-du'aa'a idhaa, pronouncing both hamzas, or by not pronouncing the second one [that comes] between it and the yaa') they go away with their backs turned.
