66 Preface يَومَ تُقَلَّبُ وُجوهُهُم فِي النّارِ يَقولونَ يا لَيتَنا أَطَعنَا اللَّهَ وَأَطَعنَا الرَّسولاYusuf AliThe Day that their faces will be turned upside down1 in the Fire, they will say: “Woe to us! would that we had obeyed God and obeyed the Apostle!”The face is the expression of their Personality, their Self; and turning upside down is a sign of degradation and ignominy. When the Retribution comes, the evil ones will be humiliated, and they will wish that they had followed right guidance when they had the chance. They will then fall to accusing their leaders who misled them. But they forget their own personal responsibility.
