Sura 8
Aya 34
وَما لَهُم أَلّا يُعَذِّبَهُمُ اللَّهُ وَهُم يَصُدّونَ عَنِ المَسجِدِ الحَرامِ وَما كانوا أَولِياءَهُ ۚ إِن أَولِياؤُهُ إِلَّا المُتَّقونَ وَلٰكِنَّ أَكثَرَهُم لا يَعلَمونَ


And what might be any other reason that Allah should not punish these (disbelievers of Makka now after your emigration to Madina) while they hinder people from the Sacred Mosque (Ka‘batu’llah) and they do not deserve to be its guardians (or custodians) as well? Its friends (i.e. guardians) are but the righteous people, but most of them do not know (this truth).
