They ask ˹the believers˺, “When will this threat come to pass, if what you say is true?”Say, ˹O Prophet,˺ “Perhaps some of what you seek to hasten is close at hand.”Surely your Lord is ever Bountiful to humanity, but most of them are ungrateful.And surely your Lord knows what their hearts conceal and what they reveal.For there is nothing hidden in the heavens or the earth without being ˹written˺ in a perfect Record.Quran 27:71~75

وَیَقُولُونَ مَتَىٰ هَـٰذَا ٱلۡوَعۡدُ
 إِن كُنتُمۡ صَـٰدِقِینَ 

عَسَىٰۤ أَن یَكُونَ رَدِفَ لَكُم بَعۡضُ ٱلَّذِی تَسۡتَعۡجِلُونَ 

وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَذُو فَضۡلٍ عَلَى ٱلنَّاسِ وَلَـٰكِنَّ أَكۡثَرَهُمۡ لَا یَشۡكُرُونَ 

وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَیَعۡلَمُ مَا تُكِنُّ صُدُورُهُمۡ وَمَا یُعۡلِنُونَ 

وَمَا مِنۡ غَاۤىِٕبَةࣲ فِی
 ٱلسَّمَاۤءِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضِ
 إِلَّا فِی كِتَـٰبࣲ مُّبِینٍ
The theme of the Surah is divine guidance in history.
Allah sent His Prophets to different people. Some accepted them and were guided,
while others denied them and they saw the consequences of their denial.
The Surah also contrasts between the principles of Tawhid and shirk.
اور کہتے ہیں کہ 
اگر تم سچے ہو تو یہ وعدہ کب پورا ہوگا؟ 

کہہ دو کہ 
جس (عذاب) کے لئے تم جلدی کر رہے ہو شاید اس میں سے کچھ تمہارے نزدیک آپہنچا ہو 

اور تمہارا پروردگار تو لوگوں پر 
فضل کرنے والا ہے
 لیکن ان میں سے اکثر شکر نہیں کرتے 

اور جو باتیں ان کے سینوں میں پوشیدہ ہوتی ہیں اور جو کام وہ ظاہر کرتے ہیں تمہارا پروردگار ان (سب) کو جانتا ہے 

اور آسمانوں اور زمین میں 
کوئی پوشیدہ چیز نہیں ہے 
مگر (وہ) کتاب روشن میں (لکھی ہوئی) ہے
