* تفسير Kashani Tafsir

{ إِن يَدْعُونَ مِن دُونِهِ إِلاَّ إِنَٰثاً وَإِن يَدْعُونَ إِلاَّ شَيْطَٰناً مَّرِيداً }

What they pray to instead of Him are but females, that is, [these are but] souls, since anyone who associates others with God is a worshipper of his own soul by his obedience of its caprice and a worshipper of the Satan of estimation by accepting its misguidance and obeying it; or [females means] all that is worshipped besides God, since that [object of worship] is a contingent being and every contingent thing succumbs to the effect of another and is liable to its effects, in need of it, which is an attribute of females.
