۞ And those who expect not for a Meeting with Us (i.e. those who deny the Day of Resurrection and the life of the Hereafter), say: "Why are not the angels sent down to us, or why do we not see our Lord?" Indeed they think too highly of themselves, and are scornful with great pride. (21) The day they see the angels - no good tidings will there be that day for the criminals, and [the angels] will say, "Prevented and inaccessible." (22) for We shall have turned towards all the [supposedly good] deeds they ever wrought, and shall have transformed them into scattered dust (23) The dwellers of Paradise (i.e. those who deserved it through their Faith and righteousness) will, on that Day, have the best abode, and have the fairest of places for repose. (24) A day when the heaven with the clouds will be rent asunder and the angels will be sent down, a grand descent. (25) The true kingship on that day belongs to the Most Gracious; and that is hard for the disbelievers. (26) And the Day the wrongdoer will bite on his hands [in regret] he will say, "Oh, I wish I had taken with the Messenger a way. (27) Ah! woe unto me! Would that I had never taken such a one for a friend! (28) He led me away from the true guidance after it had come to us. Satan is a traitor to people." (29) The Messenger says, 'O my Lord, behold, my people have taken this Koran as a thing to be shunned.' (30) Thus have We made for every prophet an enemy among the sinners: but enough is thy Lord to guide and to help. (31) The unbelievers say: "Why was the whole Qur'an not sent down all at once to him?" It was sent thus that We may keep your heart resolute. So We enunciated it by steps and distinctly. (32) And they do not come to you with an argument except that We bring you the truth and the best explanation. (33) (As for) those who shall be gathered upon their faces to hell, they are in a worse plight and straying farther away from the path. (34)
