“Surely, Satan seeks to guide them far astray.”

“Al Sha’bi said: ‘A Jew once had a dispute with a munafiq. The former said: ‘Let us have Muhammad arbitrate our dispute, for he is known not to accept any bribes.’ The munafiq, for his part, said: ‘No, let us have another Jew arbitrate between us,’ for the Jews were known to accept bribes, finally, they agreed to have a priest from Juhaynah tribe do the job. About this, the verse was revealed, ‘Have you not seen those who pretend to believe in what has been revealed to you and your predecessors, but recourse to the Taghut to arbitrate their disputes though they were commanded to deny him? Surely, Satan seeks to guide them far astray.’ ”
