Translation

Men ask thee concerning the Hour: Say, "The knowledge thereof is with Allah (alone)": and what will make thee understand?- perchance the Hour is nigh!

Tafsir

People, [such as] the people of Mecca, question you concerning the Hour: when will it be? Say: 'Knowledge thereof lies only with God - and what do you know, [what would] provide you with knowledge thereof? In other words, you do not know it, perhaps the Hour is near'.
