Polytheism of the Polytheists

Suratun-Nisaaa’  (The Women) – Chapter – 4)

BisMillaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

إِن يَدْعُونَ مِن دُونِهِۦٓ إِلَّآ إِنَٰثًا وَإِنيَدْعُونَ إِلَّا شَيْطَٰنًا مَّرِيدًا (117)

لَّعَنَهُ ٱللَّهُ وَقَالَ لَأَتَّخِذَنَّ مِنْ عِبَادِكَ نَصِيبًا مَّفْرُوضًا (118)

وَلَأُضِلَّنَّهُمْ وَلَأُمَنِّيَنَّهُمْ وَلَءَامُرَنَّهُمْفَلَيُبَتِّكُنَّ ءَاذَانَ ٱلْأَنْعَٰمِ (119a)

117.  They invoke in His stead only females; they pray to none else than Satan, a rebel-

118,  whom Allah cursed, and he said; Surely I will take of Thy bondmen an appointed portion-

119a.  And surely I will lead them astray, and surely I will arouse desires in them, and surely I will command them so that they will cut the cattle’s’ ears-    
117.  ‘Iny-yad-‘uuna  min-duu-niHii  ‘illaaa   ‘inaasaa.  Wa  ‘iny-yad-‘uuna  ‘illaa  Shaytaanam-mariidaa-

118.  La-‘ana-hUllaah.  Wa  qaala  la-‘atta-khizanna  min  ‘ibaa-dika  nasiibam-maf-ruuzaa.

119a.  Wa  la-‘uzillan-nahum  wa  la-‘umanni-yan-nahum  wa  la-‘aamuran-nahum  fala-yu-batti-kunna  ‘aazaanal-‘an-‘aami- 

    Commentary

Maf-ruuzaa – {appointed (portion)}, it is from Farz, which means ‘to fix, to appoint and to establish’. Here, aim from maf-ruuza is ‘appointed, fixed’.

La-‘umanni-yanna – (Surely I will arouse desires, put in hopes), it has been derived from the word manni-yah which means ‘wish, desire and longing’.

La-yu-batti-kunna  - (they will cut), this word has been derived from the word batak, which means ‘to cut’.

‘An-‘aamun – (the cattle), it is from na-‘ama, which means ‘a beast’, that is to say; the quadruped (animals), which are brought up for working, like camel, ox, cow and horse etc. 

Allah Almighty has been drawing attention of the mankind for observing the wisdom of those people, who, by turning away from Him, seek support of stones, to which they have named like females. It is the last limit of their stupidity that they call such things and supplicate from them. Actually they have been taken in the deception of Satan and in the screen of those things; they don’t call someone else but Satan. The reality of Satan is that he (disobedient) has turned his face from the Command of Allah Almighty and He has driven him out from His Royal Court. When Allah Almighty appointed the Devil as “outcast, cursed and rejected”, then Satan said, “Now I shall remain in trying my best to mislead the children of Adam (peace be upon Him) from Your Prescribed Way (the Straight Path), by penetrating in to them, to whom I could control. They will pay gifts and oblations of my name; they will cut the ears of quadruped animals like camels, oxen, cows and horses etc. and set them at their liberty”.
