[4:48] Surely Allah does not forgive that anything should be associated with Him, and forgives what is besides that to whomsoever He pleases; and whoever associates anything with Allah, he devises indeed a great sin.

[4:116] Surely Allah does not forgive that anything should be associ- ated with Him, and He forgives what is besides this to whom He pleases; and whoever associates anything with Allah, he indeed strays off into a remote error.

[5:76] Say: Do you serve besides Allah that which does not control for you any harm, or any profit[6:56] Say (O Muhammad): I am forbidden to serve those whom you call upon besides Allah. Say: I do not follow your low desires. for then indeed I should have gone astray and I should not be of those who go aright.

[6:71] Say: Shall we call on that besides Allah, which does not benefit us nor harm us, and shall we be returned back on our heels after Allah has guided us, like him whom the Shaitans have made to fall down perplexed in the earth? He has companions who call him to the right way, (saying): Come to us. Say: Surely the guidance of Allah, that is the (true) guidance, and we are commanded that we should submit to the Lord of the worlds.

[6:100] And they make the jinn associates with Allah, while He created them, and they falsely attribute to Him sons and daughters without knowledge; glory be to Him, and highly exalted is He above what they ascribe (to Him).

[6:101] Wonderful Originator of the heavens and the earth! How could He have a son when He has no consort, and He (Himself) created everything, and He is the Knower of all things.

[6:107] And if Allah had pleased, they would not have set up others (with Him) and We have not appointed you a keeper over them, and you are not placed in charge of them.

[6:108] And do not abuse those whom they call upon besides Allah, lest exceeding the limits they should abuse Allah out of ignorance. Thus have We made fair seeming to every people their deeds; then to their Lord shall be their return, so He will inform them of what they did.

[6:136] And they set apart a portion for Allah out of what He has created of tilth and cattle, and say: This is for Allah, so they assert, and this for our associates; then what is for their associates, it reaches not to Allah, and whatever is (set apart) for Allah, it reaches to their associates; evil is that which they judge.

[6:137] And thus their associates have made fair seeming to most of the polytheists the killing of their children, that they may cause them to perish and obscure for them their religion; and if Allah had pleased, they would not have done it, therefore leave them and that which they forge.

[6:148] Those who are polytheists will say: If Allah had pleased we would not have associated (aught with Him) nor our fathers, nor would we have forbidden (to ourselves) anything; even so did those before them reject until they tasted Our punishment. Say: Have you any know- ledge with you so you should bring it forth to us? You only follow a conjecture and you only tell lies.

[6:149] Say: Then Allah's is the conclusive argument; so if He please, He would certainly guide you all.

[6:150] Say: Bring your witnesses who should bear witness that Allah has forbidden this, then if they bear witness, do not bear witness with them; and follow not the low desires of those who reject Our communications and of those who do not believe in the hereafter, and they make (others) equal to their Lord.? And Allah, He is the Hearing, the Knowing.

[7:172] And when your Lord brought forth from the children of Adam, from their backs, their descendants, and made them bear witness against their own souls: Am I not your Lord? They said: Yes! We bear witness. Lest you should say on the day of resurrection: Surely we were heedless of this.

[7:173] Or you should say: Only our fathers associated others (with Allah) before, and we were an offspring after them: Wilt Thou then destroy us for what the vain doers did?

[7:190] But when He gives them a good one, they set up with Him associates in what He has given them; but high is Allah above what they associate (with Him).

[7:191] What! They associate (with Him) that which does not create anything, while they are themselves created!

[7:192] And they have no power to give them help, nor can they help themselves.

[7:194] Surely those whom you call on besides Allah are in a state of subjugation like yourselves; therefore call on them, then let them answer you if you are truthful.

[7:195] Have they feet with which they walk, or have they hands with which they hold, or have they eyes with which they see, or have they ears with which they hear? Say: Call your associates, then make a struggle (to prevail) against me and give me no respite.

[7:197] And those whom you call upon besides Him are not able to help you, nor can they help themselves.

[9:30] And the Jews say: Uzair is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah des- troy them; how they are turned away!

[9:31] They have taken their doctors of law and their monks for lords besides Allah, and (also) the Messiah son of Maryam and they were enjoined that they should serve one Allah only, there is no god but He; far from His glory be what they set up (with Him).

[10:34] Say: Is there any one among your associates who can bring into existence the creation in the first instance, then reproduce it? Say: Allah brings the creation into existence, then He reproduces it; how are you then turned away?

[10:35] Say: Is there any of your associates who guides to the truth? Say: Allah guides to the truth. Is He then Who guides to the truth more worthy to be followed, or he who himself does not go aright unless he is guided? What then is the matter with you; how do you judge?

[10:65] And let not their speech grieve you; surely might is wholly Allah's; He is the Hearing, the Knowing.

[10:66] Now, surely, whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth is Allah's; and they do not (really) follow any associates, who call on others besides Allah; they do not follow (anything) but conjectures, and they only lie.

[10:67] He it is Who made for you the night that you might rest in it, and the day giving light; most surely there are signs in it for a people who would hear.

[10:68] They say: Allah has taken a son (to Himself)! Glory be to Him: He is the Self-sufficient: His is what is in the heavens and what is in the earth; you have no authority for this; do you say against Allah what you do not know?

[11:109] Therefore be not in doubt as to what these worship; they do not worship but as their fathers worshipped before; and most surely We will pay them back in full their portion undiminished.

[13:14] To Him is due the true prayer; and those whom they pray to besides Allah give them no answer, but (they are) like one who stretches forth his two hands towards water that it may reach his mouth, but it will not reach it; and the prayer of the unbelievers is only in error.

[13:16] Say: Who is the Lord of the heavens and the earth? Say: Allah. Say: Do you take then besides Him guardians who do not control any profit or harm for themselves? Say: Are the blind and the seeing alike? Or can the darkness and the light be equal? Or have they set up with Allah associates who have created creation like His, so that what is created became confused to them? Say: Allah is the Creator of all things, and He is the One, the Supreme.

[13:33] Is He then Who watches every soul as to what it earns? And yet they give associates to Allah! Say: Give them a name; nay, do you mean to inform Him of what He does not know in the earth, or (do you affirm this) by an outward saying? Rather, their plans are made to appear fair- seeming to those who disbelieve, and they are kept back from the path; and whom Allah makes err, he shall have no guide.

[13:34] They shall have chastisement in this world's life, and the chastisement of the hereafter is certainly more grievous, and they shall have no protector against Allah.

[14:30] And they set up equals with Allah that they may lead (people) astray from His path. Say: Enjoy yourselves, for surely your return is to the fire.

[15:96] Those who set up another god with Allah; so they shall soon know.

[16:20] And those whom they call on besides Allah have not created anything while they are themselves created;

[16:21] Dead (are they), not living, and they know not when they shall be raised.

[16:22] Your Allah is one Allah; so (as for) those who do not believe in the hereafter, their hearts are ignorant and they are proud.

[16:27] Then on the resurrection day He will bring them to disgrace and say: Where are the associates you gave Me, for whose sake you be- came hostile? Those who are given the knowledge will say: Surely the disgrace and the evil are this day upon the unbelievers:

[16:33] They do not wait aught but that the angels should come to them or that the commandment of your Lord should come to pass. Thus did those before them; and Allah was not unjust to them, but they were unjust to themselves.

[16:34] So the evil (consequences) of what they did shall afflict them and that which they mocked shall encompass them.

[16:35] And they who give associates (to Allah) say: If Allah had pleased, we would not have served anything besides Allah, (neither) we nor our fathers, nor would we have prohibited anything without (order from) Him. Thus did those before them; is then aught incumbent upon the messengers except a plain delivery (of the message)?

[16:51] And Allah has said: Take not two gods, He is only one Allah; so of Me alone should you be afraid.

[16:52] And whatever is in the heavens and the earth is His, and to Him should obedience be (rendered) constantly; will you then guard against other than (the punishment of) Allah?

[16:53] And whatever favor is (bestowed) on you it is from Allah; then when evil afflicts you, to Him do you cry for aid.

[16:54] Yet when He removes the evil from you, lo! A party of you associate others with their Lord;

[16:55] So that they be ungrateful for what We have given them; then enjoy yourselves; for soon will you know

[16:56] And they set apart for what they do not know a portion of what We have given them. By Allah, you shall most certainly be questioned about that which you forged.

[16:57] And they ascribe daughters to Allah, glory be to Him; and for themselves (they would have) what they desire.

[16:62] And they ascribe to Allah what they (themselves) hate (daughters) and their tongues relate the lie that they shall have the good; there is no avoiding it that for them is the fire and that they shall be sent before.

[16:73] And they serve besides Allah that which does not control for them any sustenance at all from the heavens and the earth, nor have they any power.

[16:74] Therefore do not give likenesses to Allah; surely Allah knows and you do not know.

[17:21] See how We have made some of them to excel others, and certainly the hereafter is much superior in respect of excellence.

[17:22] Do not associate with Allah any other god, lest you sit down despised, neglected.

[17:39] This is of what your Lord has revealed to you of wisdom, and do not associate any other god with Allah lest you should be thrown into hell, blamed, cast away.

[17:40] What! Has then your Lord preferred to give you sons, and (for Himself) taken daughters from among the angels? Most surely you utter a grievous saying.

[17:42] Say: If there were with Him gods as they say, then certainly they would have been able to seek a way to the Lord of power.

[17:56] Say: Call on those whom you assert besides Him, so they shall not control the removal of distress from you nor (its) transference.

[18:4] And warn those who say: Allah has taken a son.

[18:5] They have no knowledge of it, nor had their fathers; a grievous word it is that comes out of their mouths; they speak nothing but a lie.

[18:6] Then maybe you will kill yourself with grief, sorrowing after them, if they do not believe in this announcement.

[18:32] And set forth to them a parable of two men; for one of them We made two gardens of grape vines, and We surrounded them both with palms, and in the midst of them We made cornfields.

[18:33] Both these gardens yielded their fruits, and failed not aught thereof, and We caused a river to gush forth in their midst,

[18:34] And he possessed much wealth; so he said to his companion, while he disputed with him: I have greater wealth than you, and am mightier in followers.

[18:35] And he entered his garden while he was unjust to himself. He said: I do not think that this will ever perish

[18:36] And I do not think the hour will come, and even if I am re- turned to my Lord I will most certainly find a returning place better than this.

[18:37] His companion said to him while disputing with him: Do you disbelieve in Him Who created you from dust, then from a small seed, then He made you a perfect man?

[18:38] But as for me, He, Allah, is my Lord, and I do not associate anyone with my Lord.

[18:39] And wherefore did you not say when you entered your garden: It is as Allah has pleased, there is no power save in Allah? If you consider me to be inferior to you in wealth and children,

[18:40] Then maybe my Lord will give me what is better than your garden, and send on it a thunderbolt from heaven so that it shall become even ground without plant,

[18:41] Or its waters should sink down into the ground so that you are unable to find it.

[18:42] And his wealth was destroyed; so he began to wring his hands for what he had spent on it, while it lay, having fallen down upon its roofs, and he said: Ah me! Would that I had not associated anyone with my Lord.

[18:43] And he had no host to help him besides Allah nor could he de- fend himself.

[18:44] Here is protection only Allah's, the True One; He is best in (the giving of) reward and best in requiting.

[18:110] Say: I am only a mortal like you; it is revealed to me that your god is one Allah, therefore whoever hopes to meet his Lord, he should do good deeds, and not join anyone in the service of his Lord.

[19:35] It beseems not Allah that He should take to Himself a son, glory to be Him; when He has decreed a matter He only says to it "Be," and it is.

[19:36] And surely Allah is my Lord and your Lord, therefore serve Him; this is the right path.

[19:81] And they have taken gods besides Allah, that they should be to them a source of strength;

[19:82] By no means! They shall soon deny their worshipping them, and they shall be adversaries to them.

[19:88] And they say: The Beneficent Allah has taken (to Himself) a son.

[19:89] Certainly you have made an abominable assertion

[19:90] The heavens may almost be rent thereat, and the earth cleave asunder, and the mountains fall down in pieces,

[19:91] That they ascribe a son to the Beneficent Allah.

[19:92] And it is not worthy of the Beneficent Allah that He should take (to Himself) a son.

[21:21] Or have they taken gods from the earth who raise (the dead).

[21:22] If there had been in them any gods except Allah, they would both have certainly been in a state of disorder; therefore glory be to Allah, the Lord of the dominion, above what they attribute (to Him).

[21:23] He cannot be questioned concerning what He does and they shall be questioned.

[21:24] Or, have they taken gods besides Him? Say: Bring your proof; this is the reminder of those with me and the reminder of those before me. Nay! Most of them do not know the truth, so they turn aside.

[21:29] And whoever of them should say: Surely I am a god besides Him, such a one do We recompense with hell; thus do, We recompense the unjust.

[21:42] Say: Who guards you by night and by day from the Beneficent Allah? Nay, they turn aside at the mention of their Lord.

[21:43] Or, have they gods who can defend them against Us? They shall not be able to assist themselves, nor shall they be defended from Us.

[21:98] Surely you and what you worship besides Allah are the firewood of hell; to it you shall come.

[21:99] Had these been gods, they would not have come to it and all shall abide therein.

[21:100] For them therein shall be groaning and therein they shall not hear.

[22:11] And among men is he who serves Allah (standing) on the verge, so that if good befalls him he is satisfied therewith, but if a trial afflict him he turns back headlong; he loses this world as well as the hereafter; that is a manifest loss.

[22:12] He calls besides Allah upon that which does not harm him and that which does not profit him, that is the great straying.

[22:13] He calls upon him whose harm is nearer than his profit; evil certainly is the guardian and evil certainly is the associate.

[22:31] Be upright for Allah, not associating aught with Him and who- ever associates (others) with Allah, it is as though he had fallen from on high, then the birds snatch him away or the wind carries him off to a far distant place.

[22:71] And they serve besides Allah that for which He has not sent any authority, and that of which they have no knowledge; and for the unjust there shall be no helper.

[22:73] O people! A parable is set forth, therefore listen to it: surely those whom you call upon besides Allah cannot create fly, though they should all gather for it, and should the fly snatch away anything from them, they could not take it back from, weak are the invoker and the invoked.

[22:74] They have not estimated Allah with the estimation that is due to Him; most surely Allah is Strong, Mighty.

[23:90] Nay! We have brought to them the truth, and most surely they are liars.

[23:91] Never did Allah take to Himself a son, and never was there with him any (other) god, in that case would each god have certainly taken away what he created, and some of them would certainly have overpowered others; glory be to Allah above what they describe!

[23:92] The Knower of the unseen and the seen, so may He be exalted above what they associate (with Him).

[23:116] So exalted be Allah, the True King; no god is there but He, the Lord of the honorable dominion.

[23:117] And whoever invokes with Allah another god, he has no proof of this, his reckoning is only with his Lord; surely the unbelievers shall not be successful.

[25:3] And they have taken besides Him gods, who do not create any- thing while they are themselves created, and they control not for them- selves any harm or profit, and they control not death nor life, nor raising (the dead) to life.

[25:17] And on the day (Qayamah) when He shall gather them, and whatever they served besides Allah, He shall say: Was it you who led astray these My servants, or did they themselves go astray from the path?

[25:18] They (false Gods) shall say: Glory be to Thee; it was not be seeming for us that we should take any guardians besides Thee, but Thou didst make them and their fathers to enjoy until they forsook the reminder, and they were a people in perdition,

[25:19] So they shall indeed give you the lie in what you say, then you shall not be able to ward off or help, and whoever among you is unjust, We will make him taste a great chastisement.

[25:55] And they serve besides Allah that which neither profits them nor causes them harm; and the unbeliever is a partisan against his Lord.

[26:213] So call not upon another god with Allah, lest you be of those who are punished.

[29:41] The parable of those who take guardians besides Allah is as the parable of the spider that makes for itself a house; and most surely the frailest of the houses is the spider's house did they but know.

[29:42] Surely Allah knows whatever thing they call upon besides Him; and He is the Mighty, the Wise.

[29:43] And (as for) these examples, We set them forth for men, and none understand them but the learned.

[29:44] Allah created the heavens and the earth with truth; most surely there is a sign in this for the believer

[30:40] Allah is He Who created you, then gave you sustenance, then He causes you to die, then brings you to life. Is there any of your associate gods who does aught of it? Glory be to Him, and exalted be He above what they associate (with Him).

[31:15] And if they contend with you that you should associate with Me what you have no knowledge of, do not obey them, and keep company with them in this world kindly, and follow the way of him who turns to Me, then to Me is your return, then will I inform you of what you did,

[34:22] Say: Call upon those whom you assert besides Allah; they do not control the weight of an atom in the heavens or in the earth nor have they any partnership in either, nor has He among them any one to back (Him) up.

[34:27] Say: Show me those whom you have joined with Him as associates; by no means (can you do it). Nay! He is Allah, the Mighty, the Wise.

[35:14] If you call on them (False gods) they shall not hear your call, and even if they could hear they shall not answer you; and on the resurrection day they will deny your associating them (with Allah); and none can inform you like the One Who is Aware.

[35:40] Say: Have you considered your associates which you call upon besides Allah? Show me what part of the earth they have created, or have they any share in the heavens; or, have We given them a book so that they follow a clear argument thereof? Nay, the unjust do not hold out promises one to another but only to deceive.

[36:74] And they have taken gods besides Allah that they may be helped.

[36:75] (But) they shall not be able to assist them, and they shall be a host brought up before them.

[37:149] Then ask them (disbelievers) whether your Lord has daughters and they have sons.

[37:150] Or did We create the angels females while they were witnesses?

[37:151] Now surely it is of their own lie that they say:

[37:152] Allah has begotten; and most surely they are liars.

[37:153] Has He chosen daughters in preference to sons?

[37:154] What is the matter with you, how is it that you judge?

[37:155] Will you not then mind?

[37:156] Or have you a clear authority?

[37:157] Then bring your book, if you are truthful.

[37:158] And they assert a relationship between Him and the jinn; and certainly the jinn do know that they shall surely be brought up;

[37:159] Glory be to Allah (for freedom) from what they describe;

[37:160] But not so the servants of Allah, the purified ones.

[37:161] So surely you and what you worship,

[37:162] Not against Him can you cause (any) to fall into trial,

[37:163] Save him who will go to hell.

[39:4] If Allah desire to take a son to Himself, He will surely choose those He pleases from what He has created. Glory be to Him: He is Allah, the One, the Sub-duer (of all).

[39:36] Is not Allah sufficient for His servant? And they seek to frighten you with those besides Him; and whomsoever Allah makes err, there is no guide for him.

[39:37] And whom Allah guides, there is none that can lead him astray; is not Allah Mighty, the Lord of retribution?

[39:38] And should you ask them, Who created the heavens and the earth? They would most certainly say: Allah. Say: Have you then considered that what you call upon besides Allah, would they, if Allah desire to afflict me with harm, be the removers of His harm, or (would they), if Allah desire to show me mercy, be the withholders of His mercy? Say: Allah is sufficient for me; on Him do the reliant rely.

[39:45] And when Allah alone is mentioned, the hearts of those who do not believe in the hereafter shrink, and when those besides Him are mentioned, lo! They are joyful.

[40:12] That is because when Allah alone was called upon, you disbelieved, and when associates were given to Him, you believed; so judgment belongs to Allah, the High, the Great.

[40:13] He it is Who shows you His signs and sends down for you sustenance from heaven, and none minds but he who turns (to Him) again and again.

[40:41] And, O my people! How is it that I call you to salvation and you call me to the fire?

[40:42] You call on me that I should disbelieve in Allah and associate with Him that of which I have no knowledge, and I call you to the Mighty, the most Forgiving;

[40:43] No doubt that what you call me to has no title to be called to in this world, nor in the hereafter, and that our turning back is to Allah, and that the extravagant are the inmates of the fire;

[40:66] Say: I am forbidden to serve those whom you call upon besides Allah when clear arguments have come to me from my Lord, and I am commanded that I should submit to the Lord of the worlds.

[41:37] And among His signs are the night and the day and the sun and the moon; do not prostrate to the sun nor to the moon; and prostrate to Allah Who created them, if Him it is that you serve.

[41:38] But if they are proud, yet those with your Lord glorify Him during the night and the day, and they are not tired.

[42:6] And (as for) those who take guardians besides Him, Allah watches over them, and you (Muhammad) have not charge over them.

[42:21] Or have they associates who have prescribed for them any religion that Allah does not sanction? And were it not for the word of judgment, decision would have certainly been given between them; and surely the unjust shall have a painful punishment.

[43:15] And they assign to Him a part of His servants; man, to be sure, is clearly ungrateful.

[43:16] What! Has He (Allah) taken daughters to Himself of what He Himself creates and chosen you to have sons?

[43:18] What! That (idols) which is made in ornaments and which in contention is unable to make plain speech!

[43:81] Say: If the Beneficent Allah has a son, I (Muhammad) am the foremost of those who serve (and will worship that son if Allah had any).

[43:82] Glory to the Lord of the heavens and the earth, the Lord of power, from what they describe.

[43:83] So leave them plunging into false discourses and sporting until they meet their day which they are threatened with.

[45:23] Have you then considered him who takes his low desire for his god, and Allah has made him err having knowledge and has set a seal upon his ear and his heart and put a covering upon his eye. Who can then guide him after Allah? Will you not then be mindful?

[46:3] We did not create the heavens and the earth and what is between them two save with truth and (for) an appointed term; and those who disbelieve turn aside from what they are warned of.

[46:4] Say: Have you considered what you call upon besides Allah? Show me what they have created of the earth, or have they a share in the heavens? Bring me a book before this or traces of knowledge, if you are truthful.

[46:5] And who is in greater error than he who calls besides Allah upon those that will not answer him till the day of resurrection and they are heedless of their call?

[46:6] And when men are gathered together they shall be their enemies, and shall be deniers of their worshipping (them).

[46:27] And certainly We destroyed the towns which are around you, and We repeat the communications that they might turn.

[46:28] Why did not then those help them whom they took for gods besides Allah to draw (them) nigh (to Him)? Nay! They were lost to them; and this was their lie and what they forged.

[51:50] Therefore fly to Allah, surely I am a plain warner to you from Him.

[51:51] And do not set up with Allah another god: surely I am a plain warner to you from Him.

[53:19] Have you then considered the Lat and the Uzza,

[ 53:20] And Manat, the third, the last?

[53:21] What! For you the males and for Him (Allah) the females!

[53:22] This indeed is an unjust division!

[53:23] They are naught but names which you have named, you and your fathers; Allah has not sent for them any authority. They follow naught but conjecture and the low desires which (their) souls incline to; and certainly the guidance has come to them from their Lord.

[53:24] Or shall man have what he wishes?

[53:25] Nay! For Allah is the hereafter and the former (life)

[72:3] And that He, exalted be the majesty of our Lord, has not taken a consort, nor a son

[72:4] And that the foolish amongst us used to forge extravagant things against Allah:

[72:5] And that we thought that men and jinn did not utter a lie against Allah:

[72:6] And that persons from among men used to seek refuge with per- sons from among jinn, so they increased them in wrongdoing:
