Answer of self-made gods

Chapter Furqaan”- {The Criterion (of Right and Wrong)} – 25

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.

 (I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)


(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)


فَقَدْ كَذَّبُوكُم بِمَا تَقُولُونَ فَمَا تَسْتَطِيعُونَ صَرْفًا وَلَا نَصْرًا وَمَن يَظْلِم مِّنكُمْ نُذِقْهُ عَذَابًا كَبِيرًا 19

19a.  Thus they will deny you regarding what ye say, then ye can neither avert (the doom) nor obtain help. 19a.  Faqad  kazzabuukum-  bimaa  taquuluuna,  famaa  tastatii-‘uuna  sarfanw-wa  laa  nasraa.


Sarfun – (to avert), it aims: Neither you can change your talk and nor put off your punishment.


Nasrun – (to help, to obtain help), that is to say, neither you can help one another together and nor obtain help. Upon whom you relied that they would help you i.e. your false gods, they have given you a point blank refusal.


When idol-worshipers will hear the answer of their false and self-fabricated gods on the Day of Resurrection in the full Court of Allaah Almighty, then it will be commanded to them: Now tell me what you say! To whom you used to call as your gods in the world, of whom you used to soother with praises and praise in songs, they have given a point blank refusal, and they have falsified you clearly. They have been saying: our Lord! We were in the world with Your Support, otherwise we were nothing. How could we say that they should worship us instead of You? While we had no personal benefit in their adoring then why would we had to mislead them? They tell a lie that we are their gods.


Speak now! You have said in the worldly life: Who has seen Allaah Almighty? Our gods are these great people of the world, after them their idols or their names and signs. They provide us everything so we shall beg from them and bow our heads before them. Look! Everything has been recorded in your Character Book. Now you can neither turn from your sayings and nor avert the doom from yourselves. See! Your gods have left you. Now you have no helper or protecting friend, so go to the Hell!
