Besides the narrated quotes and the presented behavioral patterns of the disbelievers to recognize them, Quran also explicitly displays how they will feel and what they will say on the Day of Judgment. God knows that we, humans, relate to the feelings of regret, shame and remorse. He knows how agonized, bitter and distressful we feel when we waste a chance. He knows how we object to the loss of any battle and refuse to let go of power. He knows how our egos burden us with loads of shame and regret. He knows how we need many chances but hardly learn any lessons. Because of His divine knowledge and out of His infinite mercy, God warns us in Quran by letting us have a peek, a glance, at the Day of Judgment. He plays forward the tape for us to inform us with what exactly the disbelievers will say and how exactly they will feel when they are called for His meeting. The reverent will take heed and benefit from these lessons and powerful warnings. God insists on consistently presenting the warnings next to the good news in Quran to instill reverence in our hearts. However, this divine compassion and care is reserved for those who choose Him as their Lord, while His warnings only augment the the misguidance of those who choose to be misguided.
[54:4] Sufficient warnings have been delivered to alert them.
[10:101]... All the proofs and all the warnings can never help people who decided to disbelieve.
[46:3] .... Those who disbelieve are totally oblivious to the warnings given to them.
[35:18]... The only people to heed your warnings are those who reverence their Lord, even when alone in their privacy,....
Please read and reflect on the following display of emotions that will overwhelm those who choose to disbelieve when at last they attain certainty, on the Day of Summoning. On that day, they will realize that God is the TRUTH and that they will be eternally in an exile from God's kingdom:
AND THEY WILL THEN SAY:
[25:22] The day they see the angels, it will not be good news for the guilty; they will say, "Now, we are irreversibly confined."
[16:28] The angels put them to death in a state of wronging their souls. That is when they finally submit, and say, "We did not do anything wrong!" Yes indeed. God is fully aware of everything you have done.
[23:99] When death comes to one of them, he says, "My Lord, send me back.
[23:100] "I will then work righteousness in everything I left." Not true. This is a false claim that he makes. A barrier will separate his soul from this world until resurrection.
[63:10] You shall give from our provisions to you before death comes to you, then you say, "My Lord, if only You could delay this for a short while! I would then be charitable and join the righteous!"
[79:10] They will say, "We have been recreated from the grave!
[79:11] "How did this happen after we had turned into rotten bones?"
[79:12] They had said, "This is an impossible recurrence."
[41:29] Those who disbelieved will say, "Our Lord, show us those among the two kinds - jinns and humans - who misled us, so we can trample them under our feet, and render them the lowliest."
[41:47] .... The day will come when He asks them: "Where are those idols that you set up beside Me?" They will say, "We proclaim to You that none of us bears witness to that."
[32:12] If only you could see the guilty when they bow down their heads before their Lord: "Our Lord, now we have seen and we have heard. Send us back and we will be righteous. Now we have attained certainty."
[23:106] They will say, "Our Lord, our wickedness overwhelmed us, and we were people gone astray.
[23:107] "Our Lord, take us out of this; if we return (to our old behavior), then we are really wicked."
[23:108] He will say, "Abide therein, humiliated, and do not speak to Me.
[6:22] On the day when we summon them all, we will ask the idol worshipers, "Where are the idols you set up?"
[6:23] Their disastrous response will be, "By God our Lord, we never were idol worshipers."
[6:27] If only you could see them when they face the hellfire! They would say then, "Woe to us. Oh, we wish we could go back, and never reject our Lord's revelations, and join the believers."
[6:28] As a matter of fact, (they only say this because) their secrets have been exposed. If they go back, they will commit exactly the same crimes. They are liars.
[6:30] If you could only see them when they stand before their Lord! He would say, "Is this not the truth?" They would say, "Yes, by our Lord." He would say, "You have incurred the retribution by your disbelief."
[6:31] Losers indeed are those who disbelieve in meeting God, until the Hour comes to them suddenly, then say, "We deeply regret wasting our lives in this world." They will carry loads of their sins on their backs; what a miserable load!
[6:128] The day will come when He summons all of them (and says): "O you jinns, you have claimed multitudes of humans." Their human companions will say, "Our Lord, we enjoyed each others' company until we wasted the life span You had set for us." He will say, "Hell is your destiny." They abide therein forever, in accordance with God's will. Your Lord is Wise, Omniscient.
[6:129] We thus match the wicked to be companions of each other, as a punishment for their transgressions.
[6:130] O you jinns and humans, did you not receive messengers from among you, who narrated to you My revelations, and warned you about the meeting of this day? They will say, "We bear witness against ourselves." They were totally preoccupied with the worldly life, and they will bear witness against themselves that they were disbelievers.
[7:37] Who is more evil than those who invent lies about God, or reject His revelations? These will get their share, in accordance with the scripture, then, when our messengers come to terminate their lives, they will say, "Where are the idols you used to implore beside God?" They will say, "They have abandoned us." They will bear witness against themselves that they were disbelievers.
[7:38] He will say, "Enter with the previous communities of jinns and humans into Hell." Every time a group enters, they will curse their ancestral group. Once they are all in it, the latest one will say of the previous one, "Our Lord, these are the ones who misled us. Give them double the retribution of Hell." He will say, "Each receives double, but you do not know."
[7:39] The ancestral group will say to the later group, "Since you had an advantage over us, taste the retribution for your own sins."
[7:53] Are they waiting until all (prophecies) are fulfilled? The day such fulfillment comes to pass, those who disregarded it in the past will say, "The messengers of our Lord have brought the truth. Are there any intercessors to intercede on our behalf? Would you send us back, so that we change our behavior, and do better works than what we did?" They have lost their souls, and their own innovations have caused their doom.
[14:21] When they all stand before God, the followers will say to the leaders, "We used to follow you. Can you spare us even a little bit of God's retribution?" They will say, "Had God guided us, we would have guided you. Now it is too late, whether we grieve or resort to patience, there is no exit for us."
[14:44] You shall warn the people of the day when the retribution comes to them. Those who transgressed will say, "Our Lord, give us one more respite. We will then respond to Your call and follow the messengers." Did you not swear in the past that you will last forever?
[16:86] And when those who committed idol worship see their idols, they will say, "Our Lord, these are the idols we had set up beside You." The idols will then confront them and say, "You are liars."
[18:49] The record will be shown, and you will see the guilty fearful of its contents. They will say, "Woe to us. How come this book leaves nothing, small or large, without counting it?" They will find everything they had done brought forth. Your Lord is never unjust towards anyone.
[20:124] "As for the one who disregards My message, he will have a miserable life, and we resurrect him, on the Day of Resurrection, blind."
[20:125] He will say, "My Lord, why did you summon me blind, when I used to be a seer?"
[20:126] He will say, "Because you forgot our revelations when they came to you, you are now forgotten."
[25:27] The day will come when the transgressor will bite his hands (in anguish) and say, "Alas, I wish I had followed the path with the messenger.
[25:28] "Alas, woe to me, I wish I did not take that person as a friend.
[25:29] "He has led me away from the message after it came to me. Indeed, the devil lets down his human victims."
[26:96] They will say as they feud therein,
[26:97] "By God, we were far astray.
[26:98] "How could we set you up to rank with the Lord of the universe?
[26:99] "Those who misled us were wicked.
[26:100] "Now we have no intercessors.
[26:101] "Nor a single close friend.
[26:102] "If only we could get another chance, we would then believe."
[26:103] This should be a good lesson. But most people are not believers.
[26:202] It will come to them suddenly, when they least expect it.
[26:203] They will then say, "Can we have a respite?"
[28:63] Those who incurred the judgment will say, "Our Lord, these are the ones we misled; we misled them only because we ourselves had gone astray. We now devote ourselves totally to You. They were not really worshiping us."
[28:64] It will be said, "Call upon your idols (to help you)." They will call upon them, but they will not respond. They will suffer the retribution, and wish that they were guided!
[33:66] The day they are thrown into Hell, they will say, "Oh, we wish we obeyed God, and obeyed the messenger."
[33:67] They will also say, "Our Lord, we have obeyed our masters and leaders, but they led us astray.
[34:32] The leaders will say to those who followed them, "Are we the ones who diverted you from the guidance after it came to you? No; it is you who were wicked."
[34:33] The followers will say to their leaders, "It was you who schemed night and day, then commanded us to be unappreciative of God, and to set up idols to rank with Him." They will be ridden with remorse, when they see the retribution, for we will place shackles around the necks of those who disbelieved. Are they not justly requited for what they did?
[37:20] They will say, "Woe to us; this is the Day of Judgment."
[37:21] This is the day of decision that you used to disbelieve in.
[37:28] They will say (to their leaders), "You used to come to us from the right side."
[37:29] They will respond, "It is you who were not believers.
[37:30] "We never had any power over you; it is you who were wicked.
[37:31] "We justly incurred our Lord's judgment; now we have to suffer.
[37:32] "We misled you, only because we were astray."
[38:61] They will also say, "Our Lord, these are the ones who led us into this; double the retribution of hellfire for them."
[38:62]They will say, "How come we do not see (in Hell) people we used to count among the wicked?
[38:63] "We used to ridicule them; we used to turn our eyes away from them."
[38:64] This is a predetermined fact: the people of Hell will feud with one another.
[39:71] Those who disbelieved will be led to Hell in throngs. When they get to it, and its gates are opened, its guards will say, "Did you not receive messengers from among you, who recited to you the revelations of your Lord, and warned you about meeting this day?" They will answer, "Yes indeed. But the word `retribution' was already stamped upon the disbelievers."
[40:11] They will say, "Our Lord, you have put us to death twice, and You gave us two lives; now we have confessed our sins. Is there any way out?"
[40:47] As they argue in Hell, the followers will say to their leaders, "We used to be your followers, can you spare us any part of this Hell?"
[40:48] The leaders will say, "We are all in this together. God has judged among the people."
[40:49] Those in the hellfire will say to the guardians of Hell, "Call upon your Lord to reduce the retribution for us, for even one day."
[40:50] They will say, "Did you not receive your messengers who delivered to you clear messages?" They will reply, "Yes we did." They will say, "Then implore (as much as you wish); the imploring of the disbelievers is always in vain."
[40:73] They will be asked, "Where are the idols you used to worship,
[40:74] "beside God?" They will say, "They have abandoned us. In fact, when we worshiped them, we were worshiping nothing." Thus does God send the disbelievers astray.
[40:75] This is because you used to rejoice in false doctrines, on earth, and you used to promote them.
[42:44] Whomever God sends astray will never find any other lord, and you will see such transgressors, when they see the retribution, saying, "Can we get another chance?"
[43:38] When he comes before us he will say, "Oh I wish you were as far from me as the two easts. What a miserable companion!"
[43:39] It will not console you on that day, as transgressors, that both of you will share in the retribution.
[43:77] They will implore: "O Malek, let your Lord finish us off." He will say, "You are staying forever.
[54:8] As they respond to the caller, the disbelievers will say, "This is a difficult day."
[57:13] On that day, the hypocrite men and women will say to those who believed, "Please allow us to absorb some of your light." It will be said, "Go back behind you, and seek light." A barrier will be set up between them, whose gate separates mercy on the inner side, from retribution on the outer side.
[67:10] They also say, "If we heard or understood, we would not be among the dwellers of Hell!"
[69:25] As for him who is given his record in his left hand, he will say, "Oh, I wish I never received my record.
[69:26] "I wish I never knew my account.
[69:27] "I wish my death was eternal.
[69:28] "My money cannot help me.
[69:29] "All my power is gone."
[75:10] The human being will say on that day, "Where is the escape?"
[78:40] We have sufficiently warned you about an imminent retribution. That is the day when everyone will examine what his hands have sent forth, and the disbeliever will say, "Oh, I wish I were dust."
[89:24] He will say, "Oh, I wish I prepared for my (eternal) life."
Peaceful Friday, salaam and God bless.
