Translation

Say: "Who is the Lord and Sustainer of the heavens and the earth?" Say: "(It is) Allah." Say: "Do ye then take (for worship) protectors other than Him, such as have no power either for good or for harm to themselves?" Say: "Are the blind equal with those who see? Or the depths of darkness equal with light?" Or do they assign to Allah partners who have created (anything) as He has created, so that the creation seemed to them similar? Say: "Allah is the Creator of all things: He is the One, the Supreme and Irresistible."

Tafsir

Say, O Muhammad may peace and salutation be upon him, to your people: 'Who is the Lord of the skies and the earth?' Say: 'God' - and even if they do not say it, there can be no other response. Say, to them: 'Then have you taken beside Him, other than Him, protectors, idols, to worship, who have no power to benefit or harm themselves?', and you abandon the One Who is their Possessor? (an interrogative meant as a rebuke). Say: 'Are the blind one and the seer, [respectively], the disbeliever and the believer, equal? Or are darkness, disbelief, and the light, faith, equal? No! Or have they set up for God associates who have created the like of His creation, so that creation seems alike, that is, [is] what the associates create and the creation of God [alike], to them?', so that they believe them worthy of being worshipped on account of what these [associates] have created? (an interrogative of disavowal); in other words, not so! None save the Creator is worthy of being worshipped. Say: 'God is the Creator of all things, having no associate therein, and so He cannot have an associate in terms of worship; and He is the One, the Subjugator', of His servants.
