No partner in any epithet of God
Suratun-Nahl – (The Bee) – 16
‘A-‘uu-zu Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast)
(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful)
وَإِذَا رَءَا ٱلَّذِينَ أَشْرَكُوا۟ شُرَكَآءَهُمْ قَالُوا۟ رَبَّنَا هَٰٓؤُلَآءِ شُرَكَآؤُنَا ٱلَّذِينَ كُنَّا نَدْعُوا۟ مِن دُونِكَ فَأَلْقَوْا۟ إِلَيْهِمُ ٱلْقَوْلَ إِنَّكُمْ لَكَٰذِبُونَ 86
|86. And when those who ascribed partners to Allah behold those partners of theirs, they will say: Our Lord! These are our partners unto whom we used to call instead of Thee. But they will fling to them the saying: Lo! Ye verily are liars.||86. Wa ‘izaa ra-‘allaziina ‘ash-rakuu shurakaaa-‘ahum qaaluu Rabbanaa haaa-‘ulaaa-‘i shurakaaa-‘unal-laziina kunnaa nad-‘uu min- duunik. Fa-‘alqaw ‘ilayhimul-Qawla ‘innakum la-kaazibuun.
Shurakaaa-‘ahum – (to partners of theirs), it aims “such active or lifeless things; to which they used to consider that those were partners in any epithet of Allah Almighty”.
‘Ilqaa-‘ul-qawli – (to fling the saying, to hear and reply).
Holy Qur’an teaches that Allah Almighty has created this world with His Power and decorated every thing at its proper place. Here, whatsoever happened, has been happening or will happen, that entire is by His Command. But the human beings began to consider due to deceiving by Satan that other things were their benefactors (gods).
On the Day of Resurrection, human beings will find clearly that they were at wrong. There, when they will see those things, to which they used to consider their worshipped in the world, they will say: Our Lord! These are the partners unto whom we used to call instead of You. As though it would be meant that they misled us.
As soon as those (partners of idolaters) will hear, they will answer them: you are telling a lie. The lifeless things will say: we did not know that you were worshipping us.
Great people will say: we caused to understand you during our entire life that you should worship only Allah Almighty. We are not responsible of that what you did after us.
Satan will say: I did not compel you. You began to follow me voluntarily yourselves; ignoring the Commandment of Allah Almighty. So you cannot blame me.
