Sura 10
Aya 29
فَكَفىٰ بِاللَّهِ شَهيدًا بَينَنا وَبَينَكُم إِن كُنّا عَن عِبادَتِكُم لَغافِلينَ

Muhammad Asad

and none can bear witness between us and you as God does: we were, for certain, unaware of your worshipping [us]."1
  • Thus the Qur'an makes it clear that the saints and prophets who, after their death, have been unwarrantably deified by their followers shall not be held accountable for the blasphemous worship accorded to them (cf. 5:116-117); furthermore, even the inanimate objects of false worship will symbolically deny any connection between themselves and their worshippers.
