According to the Qur'an (Surat al-Ma'idah 64),
The Jews say: "Allah's hand is tied up."
My question is where did the Jews ever say such a thing? I mean if you were to ask a Jew whether Allah's hand is tied up - he would probably answer:
"Nay, both His hands are widely outstretched: He giveth and spendeth (of His bounty) as He pleaseth"
so I wonder what it the subtext of this? What does this ayah really mean?
