There are many statements in the Qur'an such as these: "Some faces on that day shall be downcast", said of the wicked, and: "They will be as monkeys, despised and hated." The real meaning of the former is, "We will cause the brightness, or the happiness, of their expression to fade away by throwing light upon their hidden crimes which so long have kept them bright and happy." The meaning of the latter is, "Those who have imitated that which they were not, will be taken for that which they are in reality, and not for that which they falsely pretend to be"; in other words, "We will lay bare the mockery of the impostors."
