Translation

One Day will the Hypocrites- men and women - say to the Believers: "Wait for us! Let us borrow (a Light) from your Light!" It will be said: "Turn ye back to your rear! then seek a Light (where ye can)!" So a wall will be put up betwixt them, with a gate therein. Within it will be Mercy throughout, and without it, all alongside, will be (Wrath and) Punishment!

Tafsir

The day when the hypocrites, men and women, will say to those who believe, 'Look at us (unzuroonaa: a variant reading has anziroonaa, meaning 'Give us a chance') that we may glean something of your light!' It will be said, to them in mockery of them: 'Step back and seek light!' So they step back, then there will be set up between them, and the believers, a wall - this is said to be the wall of 'the Heights' [cf. Q. 7:46] - with a gate, the inner side of which contains mercy, the side of the believers, and the outer side of which, the side of the hypocrites, faces toward the chastisement.
