Bismillaah ir rahmaan ir raheem

فَلَمْ يَكُ يَنفَعُهُمْ إِيمَانُهُمْ لَمَّا رَأَوْا بَأْسَنَا سُنَّتَ اللَّهِ الَّتِي قَدْ خَلَتْ فِي عِبَادِهِ وَخَسِرَ هُنَالِكَ الْكَافِرُونَ ﴿٨٥﴾
40/Ghafir-85: Fa lam yaku yanfauhum eemeanuhum lammea raav ba’sanea, sunnateallaahillatee kaad haalat fee ibeadih(ibeadihee), va haasira hunealikal keafiroon(keafiroona).

Maulana Muhammad Ali

So when they saw Our punishment, they said: We believe in Allah alone, and we deny what we used to associate with Him.

But when they saw Our Might their belief did not benefit them! It is the way of Allah that has passed concerning His worshipers. There, the unbelievers shall be lost.

But their professing the Faith when they (actually) saw Our Punishment was not going to profit them. (Such has been) Allah´s Way of dealing with His Servants (from the most ancient times). And even thus did the Rejecters of Allah perish (utterly)!
