24 Tafseer Ibn Kathir
The Recompense of the Righteous and the Unrighteous
Allah said to His Prophet, when the disbelievers asked him to hasten on the punishment for them;
قُلْ يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنَّمَا أَنَا لَكُمْ نَذِيرٌ مُّبِينٌ
I am (sent) to you only as a plain warner."
meaning, `Allah has sent me to you to warn you ahead of the terrible punishment, but I have nothing to do with your reckoning. Your case rests with Allah;
if He wills, He will hasten on the punishment for you; and if He wills, He will delay it for you. If He wills he will accept the repentance of those who repent to Him; and if He wills, He will send astray those who are decreed to be doomed. He is the One Who does whatsoever He wills and wants and chooses.
لَا مُعَقِّبَ لِحُكْمِهِ وَهُوَ سَرِيعُ الْحِسَابِ
There is none to put back His judgement and He is swift at reckoning. (13;41)
إِنَّمَا أَنَا لَكُمْ نَذِيرٌ مُّبِينٌ
