قَالُواْ لَبِثْنَا يَوْماً أَوْ بَعْضَ يَوْمٍ فَسْئَلِ ٱلْعَآدِّينَ

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

They will say, ‘We tarried a day, or part of a day — they are uncertain thereof, deeming it shorter [than what it was] because of the gravity of the chastisement they are suffering. Yet ask those who keep count!’, namely, [ask] the angels who number the deeds of [all] creatures.
