Quan 2:212, "Beautied is the life of this world for those who disbelieve, and they mock at those who believe. But those who obey Allah's orders and keep away from what has forbidden, will be above them on the Day of Resurrection..." The phrase, those who disbelieve, in Quran 2;212 certainly refers to unbelievers. The word, mock, in Quran 2;212 implies that non-muslims speak badly against muslims. Does Quran 2:212 encourage muslims to fight with these non-muslims that mock at us, muslims? No, since it is mentioned that Quran 2:212, "(we need to)...keep away from what has forbidden" instead of fighting with them.
