A Refutation of these False Beliefs

Allah disproved all these false beliefs in the following ways,

1. He negated the worship of the idols by His Saying, 'Have you then considered al-Lat, and al-Uzza (two idols of the pagan Arabs). And Manat (another idol of the pagan Arabs), the other third?' [Soorah an-Najm (53): 19-20]

The meaning of these verses, as explained by Imam al-Qurtubi, Have you seen these idols! Do they bring benefit or cause harm such that they should be regarded as partners with Allah? Were they able to defend themselves when Allah's Messenger (sallallahu alahi wa-sallam) and his Companions destroyed them and demolished them?

Allah says, 'And recite to them the story of Ibraheem. When he said to his father and his people, 'What do you worship?' They said, 'We worship idols, and to them we are ever devoted.' He said, 'Do they hear you, when you call (on them)? Or do they benefit you or do they harm (you)?' They said, 'Nay, but we found our fathers doing so.' [Soorah Ash-Shu'ara (26): 69-74]

So, they agreed that these idols do not hear their supplications, neither bring good nor harm. Rather, they worship them due to blind-following of their forefathers, and blind-following is a worthless proof.

2. Allah refuted the worshiper of stars, sun and moon in His saying, 'and (He created) the sun, the moon, the stars subjected to His Command.' [Soorah al-A'raf (7): 54]

'And from among His Signs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. Prostrate not to the sun nor to the moon, but prostrate to Allah, Who created them, if you (really) worship Him.' [Soorah Fussilat (41): 37]

3. He negated those, who revered the Angels and Messiah upon the assumption that they are the children of Allah, in His Saying, 'No son (or offspring or children) did Allah beget.' [Soorah Muminoon (23): 91]

'How can He have children when He has no wife?' [Soorah al-An'am (6): 101]

'He begets not, nor was He begotten; And there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him.' [Soorah al-Ikhlas (112): 3-4]
