وَإِذَا قِيلَ لَهُمْ آمِنُواْ كَمَآ آمَنَ ٱلنَّاسُ قَالُوۤاْ أَنُؤْمِنُ كَمَآ آمَنَ ٱلسُّفَهَآءُ أَلاۤ إِنَّهُمْ هُمُ ٱلسُّفَهَآءُ وَلَـٰكِن لاَّ يَعْلَمُونَ
-Al-Baqarah ( البقرة )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

When it is said to them, ‘Believe as the people believe’, that is, as the Companions of the Prophet (s), They say, ‘Shall we believe as fools believe?’, that is, as the ignorant do? No we do not follow their way. The exalted One refutes them, saying: Truly, they are the foolish ones, but they know, this, not.
