(ش ر ك) Shirk/Association/Partnerships in Ch 17

1- 17:64
وَاسْتَفْزِزْ مَنِ اسْتَطَعْتَ مِنْهُمْ بِصَوْتِكَ وَأَجْلِبْ عَلَيْهِمْ بِخَيْلِكَ وَرَجِلِكَ وَشَارِكْهُمْ فِي الأَمْوَالِ وَالأَوْلادِ وَعِدْهُمْ وَمَا يَعِدُهُمُ الشَّيْطَانُ إِلا غُرُورًا
In this aya, iblees is told by Allah (!) to share with them in wealth and ‘children’ thus perhaps diverting the flow away from Allah. The promise is again mentioned (like 14/22)
2 – 17:111
وَقُلِ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي لَمْ يَتَّخِذْ وَلَدًا وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ شَرِيكٌ فِي الْمُلْكِ وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ وَلِيٌّ مِنَ الذُّلِّ وَكَبِّرْهُ تَكْبِيرًا
At the end of the process of revelation (17/107-110), we will be at the state where we experience Allah’s oneness in its pure form and thus without any partner in his magnification.
