Surah 113 Ayat 5

I pray the Sustainer may guide me even closer than this, to a consciousness of what is right

It is said the LORD has no partners.


Why perhaps because ALLAH is indivisible, not-two.

A partner, in this sense then, is something (or someone) distracting one’s attention from the divine and thereby making The One seem to be “two” or more.

(By “partnering” with G-D, one is giving attention or importance to anything or anyone other than The Unique Eternal Light of all the worlds, Allah: The oft-forgiving, most merciful.)

Thus while superstitious idolatry may be a common form of making partners with The One GOD, so too may worshiping holy saints be a form of partnering,
so too
may a partnering with ALLAH be
feeling one is elevated among one’s brothers and sisters, be that due wealth or status or knowledge, or humility.



thisismyaesthetic: “…is it really fair to say that though? at least the person prays. Idk just my opinion.”

Qitmir: Perhaps this re-wording will help clarify the idea: “If you pray _only_ when you’re in trouble… maybe you’ve been in trouble for a while longer than you think." 

(more: Because a muslim is enjoined to pray five times a day, an attentive muslim will interrupt even the constant prayer in order to say those obligatory five prayers. Hence if one prays ONLY when worried, then prayer heretofore surely has been neither consistent or obedient or heartfelt. Such waywardness is "asking for trouble” –and yes, perhaps that is a “divine nudge” back into the clear path, as may be inferred from your comment.) Does this help?
