وَلَنُذِيقَنَّهُمْ مِنَ الْعَذَابِ الْأَدْنَىٰ دُونَ الْعَذَابِ الْأَكْبَرِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْجِعُونَ

Asad : However, ere [We condemn them to] that supreme suffering, We shall most certainly let the taste of a suffering closer at hand,16 so that they might [repent and] mend their ways.17
Khattab :

We will certainly make them taste some of the minor torment ˹in this life˺ before the major torment ˹of the Hereafter˺, so perhaps they will return ˹to the Right Path˺.

Malik : We shall certainly make them taste the lighter torment in this life before the greater punishment of the hereafter, so that they may return to the Right Way.
Pickthall : And verily We make them taste the lower punishment before the greater, that haply they may return.
Yusuf Ali : And indeed We will make them taste of the Penalty of this (life) prior to the supreme Penalty in order that they may (repent and) return. 3654
Transliteration : Walanutheeqannahum mina alAAathabi aladna doona alAAathabi alakbari laAAallahum yarjiAAoona

Yusuf Ali 3654 The final Penalty is to come in the Hereafter. There is no doubt about it. But before it comes, a minor Penalty comes in this very life. It may be in some kind of misfortune, or it may be in the pangs of a tortured conscience or secret sorrow. But this minor Penalty may be really a mercy, as it gives them a chance of repentance and amendment.
