إِنَّمَا تَعْبُدُونَ مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ أَوْثَاناً وَتَخْلُقُونَ إِفْكاً إِنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ تَعْبُدُونَ مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ لاَ يَمْلِكُونَ لَكُمْ رِزْقاً فَٱبْتَغُواْ عِندَ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرِّزْقَ وَٱعْبُدُوهُ وَٱشْكُرُواْ لَهُ إِلَيْهِ تُرْجَعُونَ
١٧
-Al-‘Ankabût ( العنكبوت )

Tafsir al-Jalalayn

What you worship besides God, that is, other than Him, are only graven images and you fabricate a calumny, you speak lies [such as]: ‘[These] graven images are God’s partners’. Truly those whom you worship besides God have no power to provide for you. So seek your provision from God, request it from Him, and worship Him, and be thankful to Him; to Him you shall be returned.
