And they will say, |Why do we not see men whom we used to count among the worst?
Is it [because] we took them in ridicule, or has [our] vision turned away from them?|
Indeed, that is truth - the quarreling of the people of the Fire.
Say, [O Muúammad], |I am only a warner, and there is not any deity except Allah , the One, the Prevailing.
Lord of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between them, the Exalted in Might, the Perpetual Forgiver.
Say, |It is great news
From which you turn away.
I had no knowledge of the exalted assembly [of angels] when they were disputing [the creation of Adam].
It has not been revealed to me except that I am a clear warner.
[So mention] when your Lord said to the angels, |Indeed, I am going to create a human being from clay.
So when I have proportioned him and breathed into him of My [created] soul, then fall down to him in prostration.
So the angels prostrated - all of them entirely.
Except Iblees; he was arrogant and became among the disbelievers.
[ Allah ] said, |O Iblees, what prevented you from prostrating to that which I created with My hands? Were you arrogant [then], or were you [already] among the haughty?|
He said, |I am better than him. You created me from fire and created him from clay.
[ Allah ] said, |Then get out of Paradise, for indeed, you are expelled.
And indeed, upon you is My curse until the Day of Recompense.
He said, |My Lord, then reprieve me until the Day they are resurrected.
[ Allah ] said, |So indeed, you are of those reprieved
Until the Day of the time well-known.
[Iblees] said, |By your might, I will surely mislead them all
Except, among them, Your chosen servants.
