If you are of the truthful ones, why do you not bring to us the angels

And (O' prophet!) We certainly know your breast is straitened by what they say.
Therefore, (to reinforce yourself) , celebrate the praise of your Lord, and be of those who make prostration (unto Him) .
And worship your Lord until the Certain comes to you.
