Ayah

وَلَوۡ جَعَلۡنَٰهُ مَلَكًا لَّجَعَلۡنَٰهُ رَجُلًا وَلَلَبَسۡنَا عَلَيۡهِم مَّا يَلۡبِسُونَ

Translation

If We had made it an angel, We should have sent him as a man, and We should certainly have caused them confusion in a matter which they have already covered with confusion.<br/>

Tafsir

And had We appointed him, the one who is sent down to them, an angel, We would assuredly have made him, the angel, a man, that is, [We would have sent him] in the form of a man, so that they would be able to see him, since no human being is capable of seeing an angel; and, had We sent him down and made him a man, We would have assuredly confused, obscured, for them what they are confusing, for themselves, when they say, 'This is but a mere mortal like the rest of you'.
