That's an Evil End

Guidance-I

“Instead of Allah they worship those concerning whom He has revealed no sanction, and concerning whom they have no true knowledge. None shall be able to help such evil-doers. When Our Signs are plainly recited to them, you will perceive utter repugnance on their faces and it all but seems as if they will soon pounce upon those who recite Our Signs to them. Say: ‘Shall I tell you what is worse than that? The Fire with which Allah has threatened those who disbelieve. That is truly an evil end’.”
(Al-Qur’ān – 22:71-72)
No Scripture states that God associated others with Him in His Godhead, and that consequently such others should also be worshipped beside God. Nor have any of those who are considered to be God’s partners been able to know from any truly authentic source that they are indeed God’s partners. Hence, the whole pantheon of false deities, the myriad of different notions and inventions about their attributes and powers, acts of devotion and various Prayers that are addressed to them, none has any sanction. Those who engage in such things do no more than follow the baseless fancies of the ignorant.
They think their false deities will help them in this world and in the Next. In point of fact, they have none to help them. So far as the false deities are concerned, they will be unable to assist for they are absolutely helpless. Nor will God help them for they have rebelled against Him. Hence, they are harming only themselves by engaging in this folly.
