And certainly Haroun had said to them before: O my people! you are only tried by it, and surely your Lord is the Beneficent Allah, therefore follow me and obey my order. 90 But they answered: "By no means shall we cease to worship it until Moses returns to us." 91 Said Moosa, “O Haroon what prevented you when you saw them going astray?” 92 from following after me, did you disobey my order' 93 Aaron replied, "Son of my mother, do not seize me by my beard or head.

On the Day of Judgment it will be a terrible load for him to carry. 101 The Day the Horn will be blown. And We will gather the criminals, that Day, blue-eyed. 102 They will slowly talk to each other and say, "Our life on earth was as short as ten days". 103 We know well what they will say to one another: We also know that even the most cautious in his estimate will say: "You lived in the world no more than a day." 104
