On the Day of Resurrection
[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.”
*14:21 Frequently, the Quran talks about the Hereafter in the past tense. This is because those are future events already witnessed by God, and will surely come to pass.
