[Ignorance]

English – Mohsin Khan/Taqi-ud-Din al-Hilali
Draws near for mankind their reckoning, while they turn away in heedlessness.

English – Tafsir ibn kathir
The Hour is at hand but People are heedless

Allah says:

اقْتَرَبَ لِلنَّاسِ حِسَابُهُمْ وَهُمْ فِي غَفْلَةٍ مَّعْرِضُونَ

Draws near for mankind their reckoning, while they turn away in heedlessness.

This is a warning from Allah of the approach of the Hour, and that people are heedless of it, i.e., they are not working for it or preparing for it.

An-Nasa’i recorded that Abu Sa`id reported from the Prophet:

فِي غَفْلَةٍ مَّعْرِضُونَ

(while they turn away in heedlessness), he said,
فِي الدُّنْيَا
(in this world).

Allah says:

أَتَى أَمْرُ اللَّهِ فَلَ تَسْتَعْجِلُوهُ

The Event ordained by Allah will come to pass, so seek not to hasten it. (16:1)

اقْتَرَبَتِ السَّاعَةُ وَانشَقَّ الْقَمَرُ

وَإِن يَرَوْاْ ءَايَةً يُعْرِضُواْ

The Hour has drawn near, and the moon has been cleft asunder. And if they see a sign, they turn away. (54:1-2)
Then Allah states that they do not listen to the revelation (Wahy) that He sends down to His Messenger, which is addressed to the Quraysh and all disbelievers like them
