وَمِنْ النَّاسِ مَنْ يُعْجِبُكَ قَوْلُهُ فِي الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَيُشْهِدُ اللَّهَ عَلَى مَا فِي قَلْبِهِ وَهُوَ أَلَدُّ الْخِصَامِ وَإِذَا تَوَلَّى سَعَى فِي الْأَرْضِ لِيُفْسِدَ فِيهَا وَيُهْلِكَ الْحَرْثَ وَالنَّسْلَ وَاللَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ الْفَسَادَ وَ إِذَا قِيلَ لَهُ اتَّقِ اللَّهَ أَخَذَتْهُ الْعِزَّةُ بِالْإِثْمِ فَحَسْبُهُ جَهَنَّمُ وَلَبِئْسَ الْمِهَادُ وَمِنْ النَّاسِ مَنْ يَشْرِي نَفْسَهُ ابْتِغَاءَ مَرْضَاةِ اللَّهِ وَاللَّهُ رَءُوفٌ بِالْعِبَادِ (2: 204-207)

And there are some whose conversation pleases you in the life of this world and they even make God witness to what is in their hearts; whereas, in fact, they are the deadliest among the enemies. [As soon as] they leave you, they strive to spread anarchy in the land, ruin crops and destroy generations [of mankind]. And God does not like anarchy. And when they are told: “Have fear of God,” with an inclination towards sin, their arrogance prevents them [from doing so]. So, sufficient for them is Hell. And it is an evil abode. And there are others among these very people who would give away their lives in order to find favour with God. [It is to such people that] God is compassionate. (2:204-207)
