The Jinns Affirmation that Allah does not have a Wife and Children Print E-mail

Allah says,

﴿مَا اتَّخَذَ صَـحِبَةً وَلاَ وَلَداً﴾

(He has taken neither a wife nor a son.) meaning, far exalted is He above taking a mate and having children. This means that when the Jinns accepted Islam and believed in the Qur'an they professed Allah's magnificence above having taken a spouse and a child (or a son). Then they said,

﴿وَأَنَّهُ كَانَ يَقُولُ سَفِيهُنَا عَلَى اللَّهِ شَطَطاً ﴾

(And that the foolish among us used to utter against Allah that which was an enormity in falsehood.) Mujahid, `Ikrimah, Qatadah and As-Suddi, all said,

﴿سَفِيهُنَا﴾

(the foolish among us) "They were referring to Iblis.''

﴿شَطَطًا﴾

(that which was an enormity in falsehood.) As-Suddi reported from Abu Malik that he said, "This means a transgression.'' Ibn Zayd said, "A great injustice.'' The foolish (Safih) also carries the meaning of everyone in the category who claims that Allah has a spouse or a son. This is why Allah says here,

﴿وَأَنَّهُ كَانَ يَقُولُ سَفِيهُنَا﴾

(And that the foolish among us used to utter) meaning, nd He, eeA ? The Jinns Affirmation that Allah does not have a Wife and Children Allah says,

﴿مَا اتَّخَذَ صَـحِبَةً وَلاَ وَلَداً﴾

(He has taken neither a wife nor a son.) meaning, far exalted is He above taking a mate and having children. This means that when the Jinns accepted Islam and believed in the Qur'an they professed Allah's magnificence above having taken a spouse and a child (or a son). Then they said,

﴿وَأَنَّهُ كَانَ يَقُولُ سَفِيهُنَا عَلَى اللَّهِ شَطَطاً ﴾

(And that the foolish among us used to utter against Allah that which was an enormity in falsehood.) Mujahid, `Ikrimah, Qatadah and As-Suddi, all said,

﴿سَفِيهُنَا﴾

﴿وَأَنَّهُ كَانَ يَقُولُ سَفِيهُنَا﴾

(And that the foolish among us used to utter) meaning, before his acceptance of Islam.

﴿عَلَى اللَّهِ شَطَطاً﴾

(against Allah that which was an enormity in falsehood.) meaning, falsehood and a lie. Thus, Allah says,

﴿وَأَنَّا ظَنَنَّآ أَن لَّن تَقُولَ الإِنسُ وَالْجِنُّ عَلَى اللَّهِ كَذِباً ﴾

(And verily, we thought that men and Jinn would not utter a lie against Allah.) meaning, `we did not think that humans and Jinns would join each other in lying about Allah by attributing a spouse and a son to Him. So when we heard this Qur'an we believed in it and we knew that they (Jinns and men) had been lying about Allah in this matter.'
