And they say, ‘The Gracious God has taken to Himself a son.’ Holy is He. Nay, they are only honoured servants; They speak not before He speaks, and they act only by His command.
Islam, The Holy Qur’an, 21:27-28.
Allah Almighty said: ‘Verily, I am free of the idolatry of any partners. Whoever performs a deed in which he associates another with Me, I will abandon him to his partner.’
Islam, The Holy Prophet (sa), Hadith of Sahih Muslim
Whoever desires to see God – the True Creator – in this life, should act righteously…He should also abstain from shirk [associating partners with God] and should worship neither the sun, nor the moon, nor the stars, nor air, nor fire, nor water, nor anything else. He should also not put his faith in physical means as though they were God’s partners. Nor should he depend upon his own prowess, for this also amounts to idolatry – shirk.
Islam, The Promised Messiah (as), Lecture Lahore, pp. 10-11
You shall not make for yourself an idol, whether in the form of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I the Lord your God am a jealous God.
Judaism, The Torah, Exodus 20:3-5
What pagans sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons and not to God. I do not want you to be partners with demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons.
Christianity, The Bible, 1 Corinthians 10:20-21
O Lord, how can a god or a demon know all the extent of your glory? You alone know what you are, by the light of your innermost nature.
Hinduism, Bhagavad Gita, 10:14
My follower does not study the practice of magic and spells. He does not analyse dreams and signs in sleep and movements in the Zodiac.
Buddhism, Sutta Nipata, 927
