Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(Say) to them, O Muhammad: (I have no power to) avoid (hurt or) bring (benefit) to (myself, save that which Allah willeth) of hurt or benefit. (For every nation there is an appointed time) a respite and determined time. (When their time cometh) when the time of their destruction comes, (then they cannot put it off an hour) after the appointed time, (nor hasten (it)) before the appointed time.
