[Maidah 5:58] And when you call to prayer, they mock and make fun of it; this is because they are people without any sense.
[Maidah 5:59] Say, “O People given the Book(s)! What do you dislike in us - except that we believe in Allah and what is sent down to us and what was sent down before, and because most of you are disobedient?”
[Maidah 5:60] Say, “Shall I tell you of those who are in a worse position than this, in Allah’s sight? It is those whom Allah has cursed and has wreaked His wrath upon and turned some of them into apes and swine, and worshippers of the devil; theirs is a worse destination and they have wandered further astray from the Straight Path.”
[Maidah 5:61] And when they come to you, they say, “We are Muslims” whereas they were disbelievers when they came in, and disbelievers when they went out; and Allah knows very well, what they hide.
[Maidah 5:62] And you will see many of them rushing towards sin and oppression, and to devour the forbidden; undoubtedly what they do is extremely evil.
[Maidah 5:63] Why do not their priests and monks forbid them from speaking evil and devouring the forbidden? Undoubtedly what they do is extremely evil.
[Maidah 5:64] And the Jews said, “Allah’s hand* is tied";
may their hands be tied - and they are accursed for saying so! In fact,
both His hands * are free, He bestows upon whomever He wills; and O dear
Prophet, this Book which has been sent down upon you from your Lord will
cause many of them to advance in their rebellion and disbelief; and We
have instilled enmity and hatred between them till the Day of Resurrection;
whenever they ignite the flame of war, Allah extinguishes it, and they
strive to create chaos in the land; and Allah does not love the mischievous.
This is a metaphor used to express Allah’s power).
