مَا تَعْبُدُونَ مِن دُونِهِ إِلاَّ أَسْمَآءً سَمَّيْتُمُوهَآ أَنتُمْ وَآبَآؤُكُمْ مَّآ أَنزَلَ ٱللَّهُ بِهَا مِن سُلْطَانٍ إِنِ ٱلْحُكْمُ إِلاَّ للَّهِ أَمَرَ أَلاَّ تَعْبُدُوۤاْ إِلاَّ إِيَّاهُ ذٰلِكَ ٱلدِّينُ ٱلْقَيِّمُ وَلَـٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ ٱلنَّاسِ لاَ يَعْلَمُونَ
٤٠
-Yûsuf ( يوسف )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

You do not worship, apart from Him, that is, other than Him, anything but [mere] names that you have named, that you have named for idols, you and your fathers. God has not revealed any warrant, any definitive argument or proof, regarding them, regarding worship of them. Judgement, decree, belongs only to God, alone. He has commanded that you worship none but Him. That, affirmation of [God’s] Oneness, is the upright, the straight, religion, but most people — and these are the disbelievers — do not know, the punishment in which they shall end up, and so they ascribe partners [to God].
