Sura Al-An’am 6: 106


Follow what has been revealed to you from your Lord except that He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise . There is no god but He. And turn away from the polytheists.
Follow what thou art taught by inspiration from thy Lord: there is no god but He: and turn aside from those who join gods with Allah.

Şura in Al-Qasas 28 And: Ayat of 87
wla ysdnk n ayt llh bd adh anzlt alyk wd aly rbk wla tkwnn mn lmshrkyn
the verses of Allah revealed to you after they you refrain from what could not keep you in the Lord and you call and you Do not be of the polytheists.
And let nothing keep thee back from the Signs of Allah after they have been revealed to thee: and invite (men) to thy Lord, and be not of the company of those who join gods with Allah.

Sura Fatir 35: Ayat 40

قل أرءيتم شركاءكم ٱلذين تدعون من دون ٱلله أرونى ماذا خلقوا من ٱلأرض أم لهم شرك فى ٱلسموت أم ءاتينهم كتبا فهم على بينت منه بل إن يعد ٱلظلمون بعضهم بعضا إلا غرورا
say, “You call upon besides Allah, the associates Think about what? Show me what they have created in the earth. Or do they have a share in the heavens? Or have We given them a Scripture in which they have a clear proof? ‘ Rather, the oppressors make false promises to each other.
Say: “Have ye seen (these) ‘Partners’ of yours whom ye call upon besides Allah? Show Me what it is they have created in the (wide) earth. Or have they a share in the heavens? Or have We given them a Book from which they (can derive) clear (evidence)? – Nay, the wrong-doers promise each other nothing but delusions.
