Sura 14
Aya 3
الَّذينَ يَستَحِبّونَ الحَياةَ الدُّنيا عَلَى الآخِرَةِ وَيَصُدّونَ عَن سَبيلِ اللَّهِ وَيَبغونَها عِوَجًا ۚ أُولٰئِكَ في ضَلالٍ بَعيدٍ

Shabbir Ahmed

They choose the life of this world as the sole object of their love, preferring it to the life to come, and debar people from the Path of Allah. (They oppose reform in order to protect their vested interests). They try to make the Straight Path crooked. They have indeed gone far astray!
