Translation

If a suggestion from Satan assail thy (mind), seek refuge with Allah; for He heareth and knoweth (all things).

Tafsir

And if (immaa: the letter noon of the conditional particle in, 'if', has been assimilated with the extra maa, 'any') any insinuation from Satan should provoke you, that is, if anything should turn you away from that which you have been commanded to do, then, seek refuge in God (fa'sta'idh bi'Llaah is the response to the conditional clause, with the response to the command being omitted), and He will ward it off from you, He is Hearing, of what is said, Seeing, of what is done.
