43:20 Man’s free will

1 min read

(“Ah!”) they say, “If it had been the will of (Allah) Most Gracious, we should not have worshipped such (deities)!” Of that they have no knowledge! they do nothing but lie!

Worsted in argument they resort to a dishonest
sarcasm. ‘We worship these deities: if Allah does not
wish us to do so, why does He not prevent us?’
In throwing the responsibility on Allah, they ignore the
limited free-will on which their whole life is based. They
are really playing with truth. They are arguing against
their own knowledge. They have no authority in any
scripture, and indeed they are so slippery that they hold
fast to no scripture at all
