Verse (2:96)

The analysis above refers to the 96th verse of chapter 2 (sūrat l-baqarah):

Sahih International: And you will surely find them the most greedy of people for life - [even] more than those who associate others with Allah. One of them wishes that he could be granted life a thousand years, but it would not remove him in the least from the [coming] punishment that he should be granted life. And Allah is Seeing of what they do.
