إِلَّا مَوۡتَتَنَا ٱلۡأُولَىٰ وَمَا نَحۡنُ بِمُعَذَّبِينَ
"Except our first death, and that we shall not be punished?"<br/>
aside from our first death, that is, the one [which we suffered] in this world, and are we not to be chastised?' - this interrogative statement is one made out of [sheer] delight and in order to speak [at length] of the graces of God, exalted be He, in [His] granting of everlasting life and refraining from inflicting any punishment.
