Al-Kahf-4-791x1024

And to warn those who say, “Allah has begotten a son (or offspring or children).”
[Al-Kahf 18:4]

This is a warning to the Christians who say that Jesus a.s. is the son of God, and to the Jews who say that Uzair is the son of God. Ibn Ishaq said: “These are the pagan Arabs, who said: We worship the angels who are the daughters of Allah.”

In the beginning of this surah, Allah s.w.t. mentions 3 reasons as to why the Qur’an has been sent.
Firstly, to warn of a severe punishment.
Secondly, to give glad tidings to the righteous believers,
And thirdly, to specifically warn those who claim a child to Allah ta’ala.

From this we learn that there are two types of warning, a general warning – to all of mankind, and a specific warning – to those who ascribe partners to Allah. Those who do shirk have nullified their deeds because they go against the first condition of acceptable deeds, which is sincerity to Allah.
