Say: Shall I take for a friend other than Allah, the Originator of the heavens and the earth, and He feeds and is not fed? Say: I am commanded to be the first of those who submit. And be thou not of the polytheists.
Persians call the Creator Hormoz, but also Izad or Yazdan. They pretend that the adoration of the fire reconciles them with the Creator, because it is the most powerful and sublime of the elements. The polytheists explained their adoration of idols in the same manner.
Say Allah speaks the truth; so follow the religion of Abraham, the upright one. And he was not one of the polytheists.
Say: As for me, my Lord has guided me to the right path -- a right religion, the faith of Abraham, the upright one, and he was not of the polytheists. Say My prayer and my sacrifice and my life and my death are surely for Allah, the Lord of the worlds -- No associate has He. And this am I commanded, and I am the first of those who submit.
