“”And when they are told, Do not spread corruption on earth,” they answer, “We are but improving things. Oh, Verily, it is they, they who are spreading corruption—but they perceive it not. And when they are told, “Believe as other people believe,” they answer, “Shall we believe as the weak-minded believe?” Oh, Verily, it is they, they who are weak-minded–but they know it not………God will requite them for their mockery, and will leave them for a while in their overweening arrogance, blindly stumbling to and fro: for it is they who have taken error in exchange for guidance.” (Qur’an 2: 11 -13; 15 – 16)
