With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Sura 28 (Qasas)
Verse 62 That Day (Allah) will call to them, and say “Where are my ´partners´?- whom ye imagined (to be such)?”
Verse 64 It will be said (to them): “Call upon your ‘partners’ (for help)” :they will call upon them, but they will not listen to them; and they will see the Penalty (before them); (how they will wish) ´if only they had been open to guidance!´
Allah SWT reminds us through many verses that ascribing partners to Him will attract a great penalty and yet …
12:106 And most of them believe not in Allah without associating (others as partners) with Him!
39:67 “No just estimate have they made of Allah, such as is due to Him: ….”
From the above it is evident that the only absolute authority is Allah’s word (ie the Quran) . Other ‘partners’ will leave us in the lurch. This should prompt us to approach the Quran more often to find practical solutions to many of the challenges we face.
