Thereupon Moses returned to his people full of wrath and sorrow, [and] exclaimed: “O my people! Did not your Sustainer hold out [many] a goodly promise to you? bid, then, [the fulfilment of] this promise seem to you too long in coming? Or are you, perchance, determined to see your Sustainer’s condemnation fall upon you, and so you broke your promise to me?” (Quran 20:86)
