* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ يَوْمَ يَرَوْنَ ٱلْمَلاَئِكَةَ لاَ بُشْرَىٰ يَوْمَئِذٍ لِّلْمُجْرِمِينَ وَيَقُولُونَ حِجْراً مَّحْجُوراً }

The day when they see the angels while they stand together with the rest of creation namely on the Day of Resurrection yawma is in the accusative because of an implied preceding udhkur ‘mention’ there will be no good tidings on that day for the guilty that is the disbelievers in contrast to the believers for whom there shall be the good tidings of Paradise and they will say ‘A forbidding ban!’ as was their the pagan custom in this world whenever a misfortune befell them; in other words they mean ‘awdhan ma‘ādhan seeking refuge from the angels who will chastise them. God exalted be He says
