قَالُواْ ٱتَّخَذَ ٱللَّهُ وَلَداً سُبْحَانَهُ هُوَ ٱلْغَنِيُّ لَهُ مَا فِي ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰت وَمَا فِي ٱلأَرْضِ إِنْ عِندَكُمْ مِّن سُلْطَانٍ بِهَـٰذَآ أَتقُولُونَ عَلَى ٱللَّهِ مَا لاَ تَعْلَمُونَ
-Yûnus ( يونس )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

They, that is, the Jews and the Christians, and those who claim that the angels are the daughters of God, say, ‘God has taken [to Him] a son’. God, exalted be He, says to them: Glory be to Him!, [in affirmation of] His transcending having offspring. He is Independent, [without need] of anyone, for only he who has need of a child would desire [to have] one. To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth, as possessions, creatures and servants. You have no warrant, [no] proof, for this, that you say. Do you say about God what you do not know? (an interrogative meant as a rebuke).
