89:22 And thy Lord cometh, and His angels, rank upon rank,

And thy Lord cometh, and His angels, rank upon rank,

As God is not considered to have a body or be a “thing” that can be said
to be in a particular place or to move from one place to another, some
commentators read this verse as an allusion to God’s Power, Decree, or
Command (Q, R). Others say that it indicates God’s Presence, because true
knowledge (maʿrifah) of God will come on that Day, even if some had denied
God before it (R, Ṭs). It is said that the angels will be lined up like Muslims in
prayer (Ṭs). Others say the angels will descend from every heaven forming lines
around the believers (R; cf. 78:38)
