Ala-Maududi

(30:35) Have We sent down any sanction which provides support to their associating others with Allah in His Divinity?[54]


54. That is, what authority have do they have to say that the calamities are not averted by God but by the so called saint? Does common sense approve of it? Or, is there any divine Book which says that Allah has delegated His powers to such and such saints, and that they should now be invoked by the people to help them out of difficulties?
