Translation

How then, when they are seized by misfortune, because of the deeds which they hands have sent forth? Then their come to thee, swearing by Allah: "We meant no more than good-will and conciliation!"

Tafsir

How would it be, [what] would they do, when an affliction, a punishment, befalls them for what their own hands have sent before them, of unbelief and acts of disobedience, that is to say, would they then be able to turn away and escape it? No! They then come to you (thumma jaa'ooka, a supplement to yasuddoon, 'they turn away' [of the previous verse]), swearing by God that, in turning to other than you for arbitration, 'We sought only virtue, settlement, and harmony', reconciliation between the disputing parties by [any] approximate judgement without regard for the painful truth.
