أَمِ ٱتَّخَذُوۤاْ آلِهَةً مِّنَ ٱلأَرْضِ هُمْ يُنشِرُونَ
-Al-Anbiyâ’ ( الأنبياء )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

Or (am, functions with the meaning of bal, ‘nay’, to effect a transition [in subject-matter]; the hamza is for [rhetorical] denial) have they chosen gods, that are, from the earth, such as stones, gold or silver, who, that is, gods [who], resurrect? who bring the dead back to life? No! Indeed only one who brings the dead back to life can be God.
