۞ Those who do not expect a meeting with Us say, "Why are angels not sent down to us?" Or "Why do we not see our Lord?" Surely, they are too proud of themselves and have greatly exceeded all bounds. (21) [Yet] on that Day - the Day on which they shall see the angels there will be no glad tiding for those who were lost in sin; and they will exclaim, "By a forbidding ban [are we from God's grace debarred]!" (22) And We shall turn unto the work they did and make it scattered motes. (23) The companions of Paradise, that Day, are [in] a better settlement and better resting place. (24) On that day the sky will be crystal blue, clear of clouds. The angels will descend in groups (25) and the Absolute kingdom will belong to the Beneficent God. (26) It will be a hard day for the unbelievers. It will be a day when the unjust will bite their fingers, (regretfully) saying, "Would that we had followed the path of the Messengers. (27) "Ah! Woe to me! Would that I had never taken so-and-so as a friend! (28) "He did lead me astray from the Message (of Allah) after it had come to me! Ah! the Evil One is but a traitor to man!" (29) And the Apostle cried out: O my Lord! surely my people have treated this Quran as a forsaken thing. (30) And thus have We made for every prophet an enemy from among the sinners and sufficient is your Lord as a Guide and a Helper. (31) Now they who are bent on denying the truth are wont to ask. "Why has not the Qur'an been bestowed on him from on high in one single revelation?" [it has been revealed] in this manner so that We might strengthen thy heart thereby - for We have so arranged its component parts that they form one consistent whole (32) They bring not to thee any similitude but that We bring thee the truth, and better in exposition. (33) Those who shall be mustered to Gehenna upon their faces -- they shall be worse in place, and gone further astray from the way. (34)
