Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(If those who disbelieved) if those who disbelieved in Muhammad (pbuh) and in the Qur'an knew the chastisement awaiting them, they would not ask for it to be hastened, (but knew the time when they will not be able to drive off) when the chastisement comes, they will not be able to push away (the Fire from their faces and from their backs, and they will not be helped) to drive away the chastisement!
