"And then they will say, 'Can we have more time?' How can they ask that Our torment be brought sooner?"
I assumed that 'Can we have more time?' refers to them asking for more time on earth to redeem themselves after the see the fire, but the Quran then says "How can they ask that Our torment be brought sooner?"
Can some on explain what Allah means when saying this.
If they are asking for more time, they are not asking for their torment to be brought sooner.
