Surah al-Anbiya' (The Prophets ) 21 : 13

لَا تَرْكُضُوا۟ وَٱرْجِعُوٓا۟ إِلَىٰ مَآ أُتْرِفْتُمْ فِيهِ وَمَسَٰكِنِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُسْـَٔلُونَ

[Some angels said], "Do not flee but return to where you were given luxury and to your homes so that you will be questioned."

Explanatory Note

They are then sarcastically told: “Do not run away. Return to all your comforts and to your dwellings, so that you might be called to account.” You do not need to run away from your homes. Go back to your luxuries and comforts. You may perchance be asked about all this luxury and how you have used it. But the time for questioning is already over, and the Qur’ān delivers this final cataclysm as bitter sarcasm.
