Ayah

مَا كَانَ لِلَّهِ أَن يَتَّخِذَ مِن وَلَدٍ ۖ سُبۡحَٰنَهُۥٓ ۚ إِذَا قَضَىٰٓ أَمۡرًا فَإِنَّمَا يَقُولُ لَهُۥ كُن فَيَكُونُ

Translation

It is not befitting to (the majesty of) Allah that He should beget a son. Glory be to Him! when He determines a matter, He only says to it, "Be", and it is.<br/>

Tafsir

It is not [befitting] for God to take to Himself a son. Glory be to Him - in affirmation of His being transcendent above [doing] such a thing. When He decrees a thing, that is, [when] He will for it to happen, He only says to it, 'Be!', and it is (read fa-yakoonu because of an implied [pronoun] huwa [sc. fa-huwa yakoonu]; or read fa-yakoona because of an implied an [sc. an yakoona]). An example of this is His creating Jesus without [his having had] a father.
