AND ON THE DAY when He shall gather them [all] together, [He will say:] "O you who have lived in close communion with [evil] invisible beings! A great many [other] human beings have you ensnared!"1 And those of the humans who were close to them2 will say: "O our Sustainer! We did enjoy one another's fellowship [in life]; but [now that] we have reached the end of our term -the term which Thou hast laid down for us - [we see the error of our ways]!" [But] He will say: "The fire shall be your abode, therein to abide - unless God wills it otherwise."3 Verily, thy Sustainer is wise, all-knowing.
