Shirk

Shirk is the act of associating someone with Allah whether in His actual divinity or in worshipping Him. Quran calls upon people to believe in the oneness of Allah and prohibits from associating partners with Him. Shirk is major sin and Allah doesn’t like nor forgives those who commit. There are many ayahs in Quran that clearly forbid people to avoid shirk or face the serious consequences of doing it.

“Verily! Allah will not pardon those who associate a partner with Him. Apart from him, He will pardon all others. Who ascribe partners to Allah has gone far astray.”  [Quran 4:4]

“Those whom they call besides Allah have not created anything and they themselves are created. They are dead, lifeless: nor do they know when they will be raised up.”[Quran 16:20-21]

“Allah has said: “Do not establish two Gods: He is the only One Allah, worth worshipping: then fear Me (and Me alone).” [Quran 18:26]

There are many more ayahs in Quran that forbid shirk and tell about the punishments associated with it. In simple words Shirk is foolishness. Even the human mind reflects so. Using common sense we come to think how mere idols, statues, heroes, Greek gods etc created by human hands can have the attributes of Allah. Such lifeless forms are themselves helpless and dead. They can’t even think for themselves nor do they know where they are picked or placed upon. One the human mind can accept and is asked to believe in is to worship and believe in one God i.e. Allah. Allah is worth worshipping and fearing from. Allah is the Great and Almighty. There is no one like Him. He is One and unique. All other things associated with him is utter non sense and useless. Just keep in mind Allah does not pardon shirk nor does He forgives those who commit it.
