Ahmed Raza Khan: Mohammed Aqib Qadri:
And it is not for Allah to punish them while you O dear Prophet (Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him) are amongst them; and Allah will not punish them as long as they are seeking forgiveness. (Prophet Mohammed - peace and blessings be upon him - is a mercy unto mankind.)
But Allah was not going to send them a penalty whilst thou wast amongst them; nor was He going to send it whilst they could ask for pardon.
But Allah would not punish them while thou wast with them, nor will He punish them while they seek forgiveness.
