In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.

Continuation of Chapter 35 Fatir ( )
(The Originator of Creation)

In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.
If ye invoke them they will not listen to your call and if they were to listen they cannot answer your (prayer). On the Day of Judgement they will reject your "Partnership." And none (O man!) can tell thee (the Truth) like the One Who is acquainted with all things.
  • False or imaginary objects of worship serve no purpose whatever. They cannot hear; if they could hear, they could not grant prayers or petitions. In fact, if they are real creatures, such as angels or deified human beings, they will very rightly repudiate any such worship as brings them into competition or "partnership" with Allah. See next note.
  • Cf. x. 28 and n. 1418; also xxxiv. 40-41. No false ideas or false impressions will remain when true values are restored. Why not then accept the Truth now in this life, and get on to the true path of Grace?
  • None can tell you the Truth better than He Who is All-Wise and All-knowing. Why not accept His Message and receive His guidance?
