Sura 15
Aya 8
ما نُنَزِّلُ المَلائِكَةَ إِلّا بِالحَقِّ وَما كانوا إِذًا مُنظَرينَ

Yusuf Ali

We send not the angels down except for just cause:1 if they came (to the ungodly), behold! no respite would they have!2
  • Angels are not sent down to satisfy the whim or curiosity of the unbelievers. They are sent to bring inspiration to God’s messengers and to execute God’s decrees.
  • If the angels were to appear before the ungodly, it would mean that they came to execute just punishment, and then there would be no hope of respite possible for the ungodly.
