They say, “O you to whom the Reminder1 is revealed! You must be insane!
٧
Why do you not bring us the angels, if what you say is true?”
٨
We do not send the angels down except for a just cause, and then ˹the end of˺ the disbelievers will not be delayed.
٩
It is certainly We Who have revealed the Reminder, and it is certainly We Who will preserve it.
١٠
Indeed, We sent messengers before you ˹O Prophet˺ among the groups of early peoples,
١١
but no messenger ever came to them without being mocked.
١٢
This is how We allow disbelief ˹to steep˺ into the hearts of the wicked.
١٣
They would not believe in this ˹Quran˺ despite the ˹many˺ examples of those ˹destroyed˺ before.
١٤
And even if We opened for them a gate to heaven, through which they continued to ascend,
١٥
still they would say, “Our eyes have truly been dazzled! In fact, we must have been bewitched.”
