Ahmed Ali

Tell them: "Think (of the consequence) if this is from God and you deny it when a witness from the people of Israel had testified to the like of it and come to believe, while you spurn it?" Assuredly God does not guide a wicked people.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : say: ‘have you considered?, [say:] inform me, what will be your predicament, if it, the qur’ān, is from god and you disbelieve in it (wa-kafartum bihi, the sentence is a circumstantial qualifier), and a witness from the children of israel has [already] testified, this was ‘abd allāh b. salām, to the like of it, that is to say, to it [the qur’ān], that it is from god, and he, the witness, has believed [in it], while you act with arrogance …’, you are disdainful of faith (the response to the conditional [‘if …’] is given [by implication] in what has been supplemented to it, in other words: ‘would you not then be [considered] wrongdoers?’; this [understanding of the response] is indicated by [what follows]). truly god does not guide wrongdoing folk’.
