Translation

"In derogation of Allah?" They will reply: "They have left us in the lurch: Nay, we invoked not, of old, anything (that had real existence)." Thus does Allah leave the Unbelievers to stray.

Tafsir

besides God?', alongside Him, and these are the idols. They will say, 'They have forsaken, abandoned, us, and so we cannot see them. Nay, but [actually] we were not invoking anything before'. They deny that they used to worship these [idols]; but then these [idols] are brought [before them] - [which is where] God, exalted be He, says: 'Truly you and what you worship besides God shall be fuel for Hell' [Q. 21:98]). So, in the same way that these disbelievers have been led astray, God leads astray the disbelievers.
