* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn


{ يَوْمَئِذٍ يَوَدُّ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ وَعَصَوُاْ ٱلرَّسُولَ لَوْ تُسَوَّىٰ بِهِمُ ٱلأَرْضُ وَلاَ يَكْتُمُونَ ٱللَّهَ حَدِيثاً }

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 tusawwā or active tasawwā or tassawwā 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. 7840. 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. 623.
