Ahmed Ali

Yet they ascribe to jinns a partnership with God, although He created them; and they ascribe to Him sons and daughters, without possessing any knowledge. All praise be to Him. He is much too exalted for things they associate (with Him).



'Abdullāh Ibn 'Abbās / Muḥammad al-Fīrūzabādī

تفسير : (yet they ascribe as partners unto him the jinn) they said: allah, exalted is he, and satan are brothers and partners: allah is the creator of human beings, beasts and cattle while satan is the creator of snakes, scorpions and predatory beasts. this is the claim of the magians, (although he did create them) and command them to declare his divine oneness, (and impute falsely, without knowledge) without knowledge, argument or proof, (sons) as claimed by the jews and christians (and daughters unto him) among the angels and idols, as claimed by the arab idolaters. (glorified be he) he has exonerated himself from having children or partners (and high exalted) and he absolves himself (above (all) that they ascribe (unto him)) of sons and daughters.

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Maḥallī

تفسير : 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.

Ali ibn Ahmad al-Wahidi

تفسير : (yet they ascribe as partners unto him the jinn…) [6:100]. al-kalbi said: “this verse was revealed about the atheists who claimed that allah and satan were two brothers; that allah was the creator of human beings, beasts and cattle whereas satan was the creator of vipers, predatory animals and scorpions. hence allah’s saying (yet they ascribe as partners unto him the jinn)”.
