قُلْ أَتَعْبُدُونَ مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ مَا لاَ يَمْلِكُ لَكُمْ ضَرّاً وَلاَ نَفْعاً وَٱللَّهُ هُوَ ٱلسَّمِيعُ ٱلْعَلِيمُ
-Al-Mâ’idah ( المائدة )

Kashani Tafsir

[Say: 'Do you worship besides God] what cannot hurt or profit you?, since that [which they worship besides Him] possesses no agency by which to hurt or profit, nay possessing no existence quite besides agency. He says what besides God [cannot hurt or profit you], even though Jesus is what is meant, in order to point out that he [Jesus] can be considered as a thing [besides God] insofar as he is an entity, though he has no [independent] existence in reality.
