One whom birds had seized and the wind had dropped in a distant place

Beings other than Almighty Allah are merely His creations, and they have come into their existence and continue their existence only through His Will. It is Allah Who grants life and sustains that life which He created through His Mercy and His Boundless Compassion; it is Allah alone Who is omnipotent, and all of His creations are infinitely poor and depend on Him for their sustenance. They have no power nor abilities beyond that which our Lord has seen fit to bestow upon them through His eternal Wisdom. Therefore, there are no other living being that anyone can, or should, implore for help, mercy, favor, or blessings other than our Lord, Almighty Allah, He Who created all things.

A person who implores anyone or anything other than Allah, who asks false idols for mercy, benevolence, or who puts trust in any other thing other than Allah faces not only a horrific punishment in the Hereafter, but will also face emptiness, hopelessness and loneliness in the life of this world as well. Those who foolishly associate others with Allah are indeed among those who listen to the whisperings of the satan, and those who follow the path of the adversary are truly among the lost; their only hope of salvation is to turn in humble and sincere repentance toward our Lord, Almighty Allah, He Who created all things, and without whom one faces only forlong life in this world and an eternity of reproach and punishment in the next. Almighty Allah explains the predicament of those who associate others with Him in this verse from the Qur'an;


“...As for anyone who associates others with Allah, it is as though he had fallen from the sky and the birds had seized him and carried him away, or the wind had dropped him in a distant place.” (Surat al-Hajj, 31)

The believers, in contrast, place their trust in Allah alone, and they are servants to Him and turn to our Lord alone for help; it is the believers who, through the boundless Mercy of our Lord, live lives filled with dignity, honor, and felicity. These people are “...those who have faith and whose hearts find peace in the remembrance of Allah...” (Surat ar-Ra'd, 28), as our Lord has revealed in the Qur'an. A believer whose heart and soul is satisfied with the remembrance of Allah needs nothing else because they have earned the highest possible honor; the good pleasure of our Lord, Almighty Allah.
