“Have you not considered those who make allies of a people with whom Allah has become angry? They are neither of you nor of them, and they swear to untruth while they know [they are lying].

They took their [false] oaths as a cover, so they averted [people] from the way of Allah, and for them is a humiliating punishment. Never will their wealth or their children avail them against Allah at all. Those are the companions of the Fire; they will abide therein eternally” (Surah “Al-Mujadila”, ayats 14-17).
