[The tribe of Quraish demanded of Prophet Mohammed to bring them an objective miracle, and then they would believe him; therefore, this aya Quran 2: 201 was revealed, which means:]
([Mohammed,] ask the Children of Israel how many profound miracles we gave to them a ; and whoso substitutes [with ungratefulness] the favor of God b after having reached him [by the tongue of Mohammed], then surely God is Vehement in punishing c .)
[Then God – be glorified – explained that they refuse to believe only because they prefer the life of the World; therefore, He said:]
(212. The Worldly life has been made fair-seeming to the non-believers, and they ridicule the believers.
But the [believers] who ward off [the disobedience of God] will be above them on Judgment Day;
and [in the future: in the Worldly life], God [will] give provision without restriction to those [believers] whom He will.)
211 a i.e. how many obvious miracles We gave to them which indicated the truthfulness of their prophets, but they disbelieved in such miracles and denied them:like those miracles of Moses, Jesus and Mohammed was given the miracle of the Quran, but they denied all such miracles.
211 b The favor or the blessing of God is the Quran ayat, the exhortation and the guidance to the way of the truth; it is the favor or blessing of God on people, as is it a favor on prophets too.
211 c Those who deny His revelations and disbelieve His apostles.
