Idol Worship: Not Very Intelligent
[16:73] Yet, they worship beside GOD what possesses no provisions for them in the heavens, nor on earth, nor can provide them with anything.
[16:74] Therefore, do not cite the examples for GOD; GOD knows while you do not know.
The Intelligent Alternative
[57:21] Therefore, you shall race towards forgiveness from your Lord, and a Paradise whose width encompasses the heaven and the earth. It awaits those who believed in GOD and His messengers. Such is GOD’s grace that He bestows upon whomever He wills. GOD is Possessor of Infinite Grace.
Absurdity of Idol Worship
[30:28] He cites for you herein an example from among yourselves: Do you ever elevate your servants or subordinates to the level where they rival you, and to the point that you pay them as much allegiance as is being paid to you? We thus explain the revelations for people who understand. [30:29] Indeed, the transgressors have followed their own opinions, without knowledge. Who then can guide those who have been sent astray by GOD? No one can ever help them.
Disbelievers Refuse to Accept the Completeness of the Quran
[18:54] We have cited in this Quran every kind of example, but the human being is the most argumentative creature.
[16:60] Those who do not believe in the Hereafter set the worst examples, while to GOD belongs the most sublime examples. He is the Almighty, the Most Wise.
[17:41] We have cited in this Quran (all kinds of examples), that they may take heed. But it only augments their aversion.
