وَلاَ تَقْعُدُواْ بِكُلِّ صِرَاطٍ تُوعِدُونَ وَتَصُدُّونَ عَن سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ مَنْ آمَنَ بِهِ وَتَبْغُونَهَا عِوَجاً وَٱذْكُرُوۤاْ إِذْ كُنْتُمْ قَلِيلاً فَكَثَّرَكُمْ وَٱنْظُرُواْ كَيْفَ كَانَ عَاقِبَةُ ٱلْمُفْسِدِينَ
-Al-A‘râf ( الأعراف )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

And do not sit in every path, [every] route, threatening, terrifying people by seizing their garments, or by charging them excise [tax], and barring, driving away, from God’s way, [from] His religion, those who believe in Him — when you threaten to kill them — and desiring that it, seeking that the path, be crooked. And remember when you were but few, and then He multiplied you. And behold what was the end of the agents of corruption, before you, for denying their messengers, that is, [behold] how destruction was the conclusion of their affair.
