أَلَمْ تَرَ إِلَى ٱلَّذِينَ يُزَكُّونَ أَنْفُسَهُمْ بَلِ ٱللَّهُ يُزَكِّي مَن يَشَآءُ وَلاَ يُظْلَمُونَ فَتِيلاً
٤٩
-An-Nisâ’ ( النساء )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

Have you not seen those who praise themselves for purity? namely, the Jews, when they say, ‘We are God’s children and His beloved’, in other words, it is not a matter of their purifying themselves. Nay, God purifies whom He will, through faith, and they shall not be wronged, they shall not be diminished of their deeds, a single date-thread, as much as the peel on a date-stone.
