وَيَعْبُدُونَ مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ مَا لاَ يَمْلِكُ لَهُمْ رِزْقاً مِّنَ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلأَرْضِ شَيْئاً وَلاَ يَسْتَطِيعُونَ
-An-Nahl ( النحل )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

And they worship besides God, that is, other than Him, what has no power to give them any [sort of] provision from the heavens, such as water, and the earth, such as plants (shay’an, ‘any[thing]’, is a substitute for rizqan, ‘provision’) nor do they have the capacity, [nor] are they able to do anything — and these are the idols.
