From the Holy Quran

And the day when the unjust one shall bite his hands saying:
O! would that I had taken a way with the Prophet
O woe is me! would that I had not taken such a one for a friend !
Certainly he led me astray from the reminder after it had come to me;
and the Shaitan fails to aid man.

          Al-Furqan (25), verses 27 - 29
