يَوۡمَئِذٍ يَوَدُّ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ وَعَصَوُاْ ٱلرَّسُولَ لَوۡ تُسَوَّىٰ بِهِمُ ٱلۡأَرۡضُ وَلَا يَكۡتُمُونَ ٱللَّهَ حَدِيثًا
On that day those who reject Faith and disobey the messenger will wish that the earth Were made one with them: But never will they hide a single fact from Allah!<br/>
Upon that day, the day of bringing forward; the disbelievers, those who have disobeyed the Messenger, will wish that (law, 'if', means an, 'that') the earth might be levelled with them (read passive tusawwaa, or active tasawwaa, or tassawwaa), so that like it they might also become dust, [and this is] because of the terror of that day, as is stated in another verse: The disbeliever shall say, 'O would that I were dust!' [Q. 78:40]. And they will not hide from God any talk, of what they did, although at another stage they do actually hide it and say, 'By God, our Lord, we never associated anything with You' [Q. 6:23].
