Partners (Surah Ar-Rum 30:28) S30a2810




A Parable of Tawhid

This is the parable Allah makes of the idolators, those who worship others besides Him and attribute partners to Him, while at the same time admitting that these so-called partners -- idols and false gods -- are enslaved to and belong to Him. In their Talbiyah (during Hajj and `Umrah they used to say, "At Your service, You have no partner except the partner that You have, You own Him and whatever he owns.''

He sets forth for you a parable from yourselves 'something which you yourselves can see witness, and understand.'

Do you have partners among those whom your right hands possess to share as equals in the wealth We have bestowed on you... `None of you would like to have his servant as a partner in his wealth, each of them having an equal share.'

whom you fear as you fear each other.` You fear that they will have a share in your wealth with you.' Abu Mijlaz said, "You do not fear that your servant will have a share in your wealth, because he has no such right; similarly, Allah has no partner.'' The point is, that since any one of you would abhor such a thing, how can you attribute rivals to Allah from among His creation At-Tabarani recorded that Ibn `Abbas said, "The people of Shirk used to say in their Talbiyah, `At Your service, You have no partner except the partner that You have, You own Him and whatever he owns.' Then Allah revealed the words:

Do you have partners among those whom your right hands possess to share as equals in the wealth We have bestowed on you, whom you fear as you fear each other?'' If humans have this characteristic, this parable shows that it is even less befitting for Allah to have a partner.

Thus do We explain the signs in detail to a people who have sense. Then Allah points out that when the idolators worship others instead of Him, doing so out of their own folly and ignorance.
