42. (They are fond of) listening to falsehood, of devouring anything forbidden. If they do
come to thee, either judge between them, or decline to interfere. If thou decline, they
cannot hurt thee in the least. If thou judge, judge in equity between them. For God loveth
those who judge in equity.
43. Wakayfa yuhakkimoonaka waAAindahumu a

43. But why do they come to thee for decision, when they have (their own) law before
them?- therein is the (plain) command of God; yet even after that, they would turn away.
For they are not (really) People of Faith.
