 يَٰصَىٰحِبَىِ ٱلسِّجْنِ ءَأَرْبَابٌ مُّتَفَرِّقُونَ خَيْرٌ أَمِ ٱللَّهُ ٱلْوَٰحِدُ ٱلْقَهَّارُ (39

40.  Those whom ye worship beside Him are but only names which ye have named, ye and your fathers. Allah hath revealed no sanction for them. The decision rests with Allah only. He it is Who hath commanded you that ye worship none save Him. This is the Right Religion, but most men know not.

This verse contains that Message which is foundation of Islam. Islam is whole of all beauties. And with effect from the birth of mankind, the entire Prophets (peace be upon them) have taught the same till now. Joseph (peace be upon him) caused to hear this Message to His two fellow prisoners, but Holy Qur’an saved it in the cover of His story for always and for all times in the world. This verse is a soul of this entire Chapter.
