Sura 4
Aya 153
يَسأَلُكَ أَهلُ الكِتابِ أَن تُنَزِّلَ عَلَيهِم كِتابًا مِنَ السَّماءِ ۚ فَقَد سَأَلوا موسىٰ أَكبَرَ مِن ذٰلِكَ فَقالوا أَرِنَا اللَّهَ جَهرَةً فَأَخَذَتهُمُ الصّاعِقَةُ بِظُلمِهِم ۚ ثُمَّ اتَّخَذُوا العِجلَ مِن بَعدِ ما جاءَتهُمُ البَيِّناتُ فَعَفَونا عَن ذٰلِكَ ۚ وَآتَينا موسىٰ سُلطانًا مُبينًا

Mir Aneesuddin

The owners of the book demand from you that you should bring down a book on them, from the sky. They had demanded of Musa (something) greater than that, they said, “Show us Allah openly.” Therefore due to their injustice, the thunder-bolt took (hold of) them. Then they took the calf (for worship), after clear signs had come to them, but We pardoned (even) that and We gave Musa clear authority.
