(155) وَ هذا كِتابٌ أَنْزَلْناهُ مُبارَكٌ فَاتَّبِعُوهُ وَ اتَّقُوا لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ
(156) أَنْ تَقُولُوا إِنَّما أُنْزِلَ الْكِتابُ عَلى طائِفَتَيْنِ مِنْ قَبْلِنا وَ إِنْ كُنَّا عَنْ دِراسَتِهِمْ لَغافِلِينَ
155. " And this (Qur'an) is a Book which we have sent down, blessed, so follow it, and keep from evil so that mercy may be shown to you."
156. " Lest you should say : The Book was sent down only to two parties (the Jews and the Christians) before us, and we were truely unaware of their studies."

And, they should not say that they disobeyed the command of Allah because His commandment was under the control of others and it was not available for them.
The verse says :
