وَقَالُواْ لَوۡلَآ أُنزِلَ عَلَيۡهِ مَلَكٌ ۖ وَلَوۡ أَنزَلۡنَا مَلَكًا لَّقُضِىَ ٱلۡأَمۡرُ ثُمَّ لَا يُنظَرُونَ
They say: "Why is not an angel sent down to him?" If we did send down an angel, the matter would be settled at once, and no respite would be granted them.<br/>
And they say, 'Why has an angel not been sent down to him?', to Muhammad may peace and salutation be upon him, to confirm his truthfulness; yet had We sent down an angel, as they have requested and if they then did not believe, the matter, that they be destroyed, would have been decreed, and then they would not be given any respite, they would [not] be given any extra time for repentance or an excuse, as is God's custom [in dealing] with those before them, destroying them when they disbelieve after their request is granted.
