أَلَمۡ تَرَ إِلَى ٱلَّذِينَ يَزۡعُمُونَ أَنَّهُمۡ ءَامَنُواْ بِمَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيۡكَ وَمَآ أُنزِلَ مِن قَبۡلِكَ يُرِيدُونَ أَن يَتَحَاكَمُوٓاْ إِلَى ٱلطَّٰغُوتِ وَقَدۡ أُمِرُوٓاْ أَن يَكۡفُرُواْ بِهِۦ وَيُرِيدُ ٱلشَّيۡطَٰنُ أَن يُضِلَّهُمۡ ضَلَٰلًا بَعِيدًا
Hast thou not turned Thy vision to those who declare that they believe in the revelations that have come to thee and to those before thee? Their (real) wish is to resort together for judgment (in their disputes) to the Evil One, though they were ordered to reject him. But Satan's wish is to lead them astray far away (from the right).<br/>
The following verse was revealed when a Jew and a hypocrite fell into a dispute. The hypocrite called on Ka'b ibn al-Ashraf, to arbitrate between them, while the Jew called on the Prophet may peace and salutation be upon him. When they came to him, the Prophet ruled in favour of the Jew. But the hypocrite was not satisfied, and so they went before 'Umar. The Jew told him what had happened, whereupon he ['Umar] turned to the hypocrite and asked him, 'Is this true?', and when he replied, 'Yes', he ['Umar] killed him. Have you not seen those who claim that they believe in what has been revealed to you, and what was revealed before you, desiring to take their disputes to a false deity (taaghoot), one excessive in tempting [others] to falsehood (tughyaan), namely, Ka'b ibn al-Ashraf, when they have been commanded to renounce him?, and not to associate with him. But Satan desires to mislead them, far astray, from the truth.
