Arabic is very hard to translate to English and vice versus. These verses easily translates to, “Do what you say you going to do or have done.” This is a principle all people wishing to to live harmoniously with others embrace. Oh why, cannot we discuss the religious principles all accept and stop fighting about who brought the message.
Believers, why do you say what you do not execute? It is most offensive in the sight of Allah when you say what you do not practice!
-Qur’an, As-Saff, Surah 61:2-3
