۞ And those who do not expect to meet Us said, “Why were the angels not sent down to us or we been able to see our Lord?” Indeed they thought too highly of themselves and they turned extremely rebellious. (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) Then We shall advance upon the work which they have done and render it as scattered dust. (23) Fellows of the Garden shall be on that Day in a goodly abode and a goodly repose. (24) And on the Day on which the skies, together with the clouds, shall burst asunder, and the angels are made to descend in a mighty descent (25) and the Absolute kingdom will belong to the Beneficent God. (26) The sinner will then bite his hand and say: "Would that I had taken the road with the Prophet. (27) Would that I had never chosen soandso for my companion! (28) he made me forgetful of the warning after it had reached me. Satan is man's great betrayer." (29) The Messenger says, 'O my Lord, behold, my people have taken this Koran as a thing to be shunned.' (30) Even so have We appointed unto every prophet an opponent from among the guilty; but Allah sufficeth for a Guide and Helper. (31) Those who deny the truth say, "Why was the Quran not sent down to him in a single revelation?" We sent it in this manner, so that We might strengthen your heart. We gave it to you in gradual revelation. (32) And no example or similitude do they bring (to oppose or to find fault in you or in this Quran), but We reveal to you the truth (against that similitude or example), and the better explanation thereof. (33) [And so, tell those who are bent on denying the truth that] they who shall be gathered unto hell upon their faces - it is they who [in the life to come] will be worst in station and still farther astray from the path [of truth]!
