And Harun (Aaron) indeed had said to them beforehand: "O my people! You are being tried in this, and verily, your Lord is (Allah) the Most Beneficent, so 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 But (Moses) said: "O Aaron, when you saw that they had gone astray, what hindered you 92 "That you followed me not (according to my advice to you)? Have you then disobeyed my order?" 93 He said, “O son of my mother, do not clutch my beard nor the hair on my head; I feared that you may say, ‘You have caused a division among the Descendants of Israel and did not wait for my advice.’” 94 [Musa (Moses)] said: "And what is the matter with you.

It will be a grievous burden for them on the Day of Judgement, 101 The Day when the Trumpet will be sounded: that Day, We shall gather the sinful, blear-eyed (with terror). 102 Whispering to one another: "You have tarried but ten days." 103 We know very well what they will say, when the justest of them in the way will say, 'You have tarried only a day.' 104
