And when you called to prayer, they made it a mockery and a joke. This is because they are a people who do not exercise their minds.
Say: “O people of the Book! Do you resent us for no other reason than that we believe in Allah and in what has been sent to us and what was sent down before? And that most of you are Fâsiqûn”.
Say: “Shall I inform you of what is worse than this and certain in retribution in the Presence of Allah? They are whom Allah has cursed and brought His Wrath upon, and of whom He made apes and swine and servants to Tâgût. These are worse in place and far more astray from the designed Way”.
And when they came to you, they said: “We believed”. Indeed they come in with disbelief and indeed they go forth with it. And Allah knows best what they conceal.
And you see many of them racing with each other in sin and enmity, and their devouring of what is unlawfully acquired. Certainly evil is that which they do.
Should the learned men and the Rabbis not prohibit them from their speaking of what is sinful and their eating of what is unlawfully acquired? Certainly evil is that which they have been doing.
And the Jews said: “The Hand of Allah is tied up (He is niggard)”. Their hands have been tied up and they have been cursed for what they said. Nay, both His Hands are widely outstretched. He spends as He wills. And what has been sent down to you (divine orders) from your Lord will certainly make many of them increase in inordinacy and disbelief. And We have put enmity and hatred among them till the Day of Resurrection. Whenever they kindle a fire for war, Allah puts it out. And they strive to make mischief on the earth. And Allah does not love the mischief-makers (causing corruption).
