Tafsir jalalayn

What! And our forefathers too?' (read a-wa-b'un, [with the wa-] being for supplement, the hamza [a-] for the interrogative; here and in the previous instance, it is used to express `remoteness [of probability]'; a variant reading has aw-b'un, as a supplement with aw, and that to which this is supplemented is the [syntactical] locus of inna and its subject).

Tafseer Ibn Kathir

And they used to say;"When we die and become dust and bones, shall we then indeed be resurrected? And also our forefathers?"

They said this while denying and rejecting the idea that resurrection will ever occur.

Allah the Exalted said,
