Except such as snatch away something by stealth, and they are pursued by a flaming fire, of piercing brightness.

We can form a mental picture of the Court of the
Most High, in the highest heaven, conforming to the
highest idea we can form of goodness, beauty, purity,
and grandeur.
The Exalted Assembly of angels is given some knowledge
of the Plan and Will of Allah. Evil is altogether foreign to
such an atmosphere, but is actuated by feelings of
jealousy and curiosity. It tries to approach by stealth and
overhear something from the august Assembly. It is
repulsed and pursued by a flaming fire, of which we can
form some idea in our physical world by the piercing trail
of a shooting star
