Ascribe unto God no partner

‘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.)

وَٱلَّذِينَ ءَاتَيْنَٰهُمُ ٱلْكِتَٰبَ يَفْرَحُونَ بِمَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ وَمِنَ ٱلْأَحْزَابِ مَن يُنكِرُ بَعْضَهُۥ قُلْ إِنَّمَآ أُمِرْتُ أَنْ أَعْبُدَ ٱللَّهَ وَلَآ أُشْرِكَ بِهِۦٓ إِلَيْهِ أَدْعُوا۟وَإِلَيْهِ مَـَٔابِ 36

36.  And those unto whom We gave the Scripture rejoice in that which is revealed unto thee, and of the clans there are who deny some of it. Say: I am commanded only that I serve Allah and ascribe unto Him no partner. Unto Him I do invite ye and unto Him is my return.          36.  Wallaziina  ‘aatay-Naa-humul-Kitaaba  yafra-huuna  bimaaa  ‘unzila  ‘ilay-ka  wa  minal-‘ahzaabi  many-yunkiru  ba’-zah.  Qul  ‘innamaaa  ‘umirtu  ‘an  ‘a’-budAllaaha  wa  laaa  ‘ushrika  biH. ‘Ilay-Hi  ‘ad-‘uu  wa  ‘ilay-Hi  ma-‘aab. 




When Holy Qur’aan was being revealed, at that time, some people from Makkah were already disgusted from infidelity and belief in a plurality of God. As soon as they heard the verses of Holy Qur’aan, they had been attracted. Besides them, the people of chaste disposition from the Jews and the Christians were also pleased after hearing the verses. Although some people were not ready to believe in some commandments of Holy Qur’aan, because they had been observing that their ready made game was going to be spoiled. And they used to say: If those verses were deleted from It which were against their worldly benefits then It was a good Scripture.


In this verse, it has been commanded to the Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) after describing about their behavior: Right is not subject to any individual’s personal particular interest. It keeps in view the interest of the entire human beings only. You should say to them: I am commanded that I should serve purely Allah Almighty and should not ascribe any partner unto Him. I invite all of you unto Him only because only He is my Supporter and we all have to return unto Him.
