Ayah

وَإِذَا لَقُواْ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ قَالُوٓاْ ءَامَنَّا وَإِذَا خَلَوۡاْ إِلَىٰ شَيَٰطِينِهِمۡ قَالُوٓاْ إِنَّا مَعَكُمۡ إِنَّمَا نَحۡنُ مُسۡتَهۡزِءُونَ

Translation

When they meet those who believe, they say: "We believe;" but when they are alone with their evil ones, they say: "We are really with you: We (were) only jesting."<br/>

Tafsir

When they meet (laqoo is actually laquyoo, but the damma has been omitted, being too cumbersome for pronunciation; likewise the yaa' [is omitted], because it is unvocalised and is followed by a waaw); those who believe, they say, 'We believe'; but when they go apart, away from them and return, to their devils, their leaders, they say, 'We are with you, in religion; we were only mocking, them [the believers] by feigning belief.
