M. H. Shakir, The Holy Quran; Arabic Text and English Translation; Foot-notes by M. H. Shakir (1974)

you and the unbelievers; and be careful of (your duty to) Allah if you are believers.

58. And when you call to prayer they make it: a mockery and a joke; this is 1because they are a people who do not understand.

59. Say: O followers of the Book! do you find fault with us (for aught) except that we believe in Allah and in what has been revealed to us and what was revealed before, and that most of you are transgressors?

60. Say: Shall I inform you of (him who is) worse than this in retribution from Allah (worse is he) whom Allah has cursed and brought His wrath upon, and of whom He made apes and swine, and he who served the Shaitan; these are worse in place and more erring from the straight path.

61. And when they come to you, they say: We believe; and indeed they come in with unbelief and indeed they go forth with it; and Allah knows best what they concealed.
