1 اَمْ يُرِيدُونَ كَيْدًا فَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا هُمُ الْمَكِيدُونَOr, like charlatan munâfiqs and deceptive zindiqs whose fitrahs are corrupted and consciences rotted, do they want to deceive and trick the people and turn them away from the hidâyah, which they cannot obtain? Do they want to make others believe what they do not even believe by calling you at one time a soothsayer, at another time a madman and another time a sorcerer? Do not be saddened at their wiles and denials, and become dispirited by deeming such deceitful charlatans as human beings! Rather, increase your efforts! Because they only trick their own nafs and harm themselves. And their success in evil is temporary; it is istidraj and stratagem of Allah.
