ثُمَّ يُمِيتُكُمْ

then will cause you to die,

means, after this life.

ثُمَّ يُحْيِيكُمْ

then (again) He will give you life.

means, on the Day of Resurrection.

Is there any of your partners,

means, those whom you worship instead of Allah,

مَّن يَفْعَلُ مِن ذَلِكُم مِّن شَيْءٍ

that do anything of that,

سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ
