Ala-Maududi

(7:195) Have they feet on which they can walk? Have they hands with which they can grasp? Have they eyes with which they can see? Have they ears with which they can hear?[148] Say [O Muhammad]: ‘Invoke all those to whom you ascribe a share in Allah’s divinity, then scheme against me and grant me no respite.


148. Polytheistic religions seem to have three characteristics: (1) idols and images that are held as objects of worship; (2) some persons and spirits that are considered deities represented in the form of idols and images, etc.; and (3) certain beliefs which underlie their polytheistic rites. The Qur’an denounces all these. At this place, however, the attack is directed against the objects to which the polytheists directed their worship.
