30:28 A similitude to remember

1 min read

He does propound to you a similitude from your own (experience): do ye have partners among those whom your right hands possess, to share as equals in the wealth We have bestowed on you? Do ye fear them as ye fear each other? Thus do we explain the Signs in detail to a people that understand.

Allah is far higher above His Creation than any,
the highest, of His creatures can be above any, the
lowest, of His creatures. And yet would a man share his
wealth on equal terms with his dependants?
Even what he calls his wealth is not really his own, but
given by Allah. It is “his” in common speech by reason
merely of certain accidental circumstances.
How then can men raise Allah’s creatures to equality
with Allah in worship?
