* تفسير Tafsir al-Jalalayn

{ وَجَعَلُواْ للَّهِ شُرَكَآءَ ٱلْجِنَّ وَخَلَقَهُمْ وَخَرَقُواْ لَهُ بَنِينَ وَبَنَٰتٍ بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ سُبْحَٰنَهُ وَتَعَٰلَىٰ عَمَّا يَصِفُونَ }

Yet they ascribe to God li’Llāhi the indirect object as associates shurakā’a the direct object which is substituted by the following al-jinn the jinn since they obey them by worshipping graven images even though He created them so how can they be associates? And they falsely impute to Him read kharaqū or kharraqū that is they invent sons and daughters without any knowledge saying Ezra ‘Uzayr is the son of God and the angels are the daughters of God. Glory be to Him — an affirmation of His transcendence — and exalted be He above what they describe! of Him having a child.
