Ahmed Ali

The day the punishment comes upon them from above and underneath their feet, (God will) say: "And now taste of what you had done."

تفسير : (on the day when the doom will overwhelm them) will seize them (from above them) from above their heads (and from beneath their feet) upon being cast in the fire, (and he will say) to them: (taste what ye used to do) because of what you used to do and say in your state of disbelief!
