They have taken their scholars and monks, as well as the Messiah son of Mary, as lords besides Allah, even though they were commanded to worship none but One God. There is no god except Him. Glorified is He above what they associate!
They wish to extinguish God’s light with their mouths, but God will only allow His light to be perfected, even to the dismay of the disbelievers.
It is He who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth to manifest over all religion, although they who associate others with God dislike it.
O you who have believed, indeed many of the scholars and the monks devour the wealth of people unjustly and avert from the way of God. And those who hoard gold and silver and spend it not in the way of God – give them tidings of a painful punishment.Quran 9:31-34
