قَالُواْ يٰشُعَيْبُ أَصَلَٰوتُكَ تَأْمُرُكَ أَن نَّتْرُكَ مَا يَعْبُدُ ءابَاؤُنَآ أَوْ أَن نَّفْعَلَ فِيۤ أَمْوَالِنَا مَا نَشَاءُ إِنَّكَ لأَنتَ ٱلْحَلِيمُ ٱلرَّشِيدُ
-Hûd ( هود )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

They said, to him mockingly: ‘O Shu‘ayb, does your [way of] prayer command you, with the obligation [to make sure], that we should leave what our fathers [used to] worship, of idols, or, that we should cease, to do as we will with our goods?, meaning that such a command is an absurdity which no person calling to good would commend. You are indeed the forbearing, the right-guided’: they said this in mockery.
