وَقَالَتِ الْيَهُودُ يَدُ اللَّهِ مَغْلُولَةٌ ۚ غُلَّتْ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَلُعِنُوا بِمَا قَالُوا ۘ بَلْ يَدَاهُ مَبْسُوطَتَانِ يُنْفِقُ كَيْفَ يَشَاءُ ۚ وَلَيَزِيدَنَّ كَثِيرًا مِنْهُمْ مَا أُنْزِلَ إِلَيْكَ مِنْ رَبِّكَ طُغْيَانًا وَكُفْرًا ۚ وَأَلْقَيْنَا بَيْنَهُمُ الْعَدَاوَةَ وَالْبَغْضَاءَ إِلَىٰ يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ ۚ كُلَّمَا أَوْقَدُوا نَارًا لِلْحَرْبِ أَطْفَأَهَا اللَّهُ ۚ وَيَسْعَوْنَ فِي الْأَرْضِ فَسَادًا ۚ وَاللَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ الْمُفْسِدِينَ
And the Jews say: The hand of Allah is tied up! Their hands shall be shackled and they shall be cursed for what they say. Nay, both His hands are spread out, He expends as He pleases; and what has been revealed to you from your Lord will certainly make many of them increase in inordinacy and unbelief; and We have put enmity and hatred among them till the day of resurrection; whenever they kindle a fire for war Allah puts it out, and they strive to make mischief in the land; and Allah does not love the mischief-makers.
M Shakir's Quran Translation
The Author of Quran has full knowledge of the Bible
Bible says : And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. (Genesis 2:2 )
Quran has also mentioned the creation of earth in several epochs, but it mentions six epochs and there is no mention of the seventh day rest, as the bible claims. Human mind has wrongly attributed rest to God. God doesn't require rest. He never sleeps and never dozes off (Surah Al Baqarah 2:255). This Ayat seems to be a response to the this wrong attribution to Allah in the bible. This forces a reader to ponder that :
- Those who claim to be the followers have the bible, have themselves been unjust to the Book, and have made several changes to it, and have attributed such things to God which are ungodly. They couldn't understand the logic of the six-day creation when the week consists of seven days, so they appended a seventh day.
- The author of the Quran possesses the knowledge of the previous scripture ; what they originally contained, and how people made changes in it.
