Tafseer Ibn Kathir

سَيَقُولُونَ لِلَّهِ

"If you know!"

They will say;"It is Allah's!"

means, they will admit that this belongs to Allah Alone with no partner or associate.

If that is the case,

قُلْ أَفَلَ تَذَكَّرُونَ

Say;"Will you not then remember!"

that none should be worshipped except the Creator and Provider.

قُلْ مَن رَّبُّ السَّمَاوَاتِ السَّبْعِ وَرَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيمِ
