مَّا يَوَدُّ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ مِنْ أَهْلِ ٱلْكِتَابِ وَلاَ ٱلْمُشْرِكِينَ أَن يُنَزَّلَ عَلَيْكُمْ مِّنْ خَيْرٍ مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ وَٱللَّهُ يَخْتَصُّ بِرَحْمَتِهِ مَن يَشَآءُ وَٱللَّهُ ذُو ٱلْفَضْلِ ٱلْعَظِيمِ
-Al-Baqarah ( البقرة )

Asbab Al-Nuzul

(Neither those who disbelieve among the people of the Scripture nor the idolaters love…) [2:105]. The commentators of the Qur’an said: “Whenever the Muslims said to their allies from amongst the Jews: ‘Believe in Muhammad!’ They would say: ‘This to which you are inviting us is not better than what we have; we only wish it was better’. Allah, exalted is He, revealed this verse to give them the lie”.
