Translation

"And when it was said that the promise of Allah was true, and that the Hour- there was no doubt about its (coming), ye used to say, 'We know not what is the hour: we only think it is an idea, and we have no firm assurance.'"

Tafsir

And when it was said, to you, O disbelievers: "God's promise, of resurrection, is indeed true, and there is no doubt about the Hour", (read al-saa'atu or al-saa'ata) you said, "We do not know what the Hour is. We only make conjectures (al-Mubarrad said that this actually [means] in nahnu illaa nazunnu zannan) and we are by no means certain" ', that it will come to pass.
