2. Your God is God Alone! Those who do not believe in the Hereafter have heart which refuse to learn which they are overspread.( 16:22)
3. I shall divert those from My signs who have strutted around the earth so proudly without having any right to do so.(7:146)
 4. We told the angels: “Bow down on your knees before Adam.” They [all] knelt-down except for Diabolis. He refused and acted proudly, and became a disbeliever.(2:34)
5. Those who do not expect to meet us say: “why are not angels set down to us or we are allowed to see our Lord? “ They act too proud of themselves, and strut around quite insolently! (25:21)
6. They will cal out to them. “Were we not with you?” they will say. “Of course, but you tempted on another. And let yourselves waver and doubt.[your saying] , Amen’s [to everybody] has deceived you till Gods command come along. The Deceiver has even deluded you concerning God! (57:14)
