False Messengers Condemned (6:93 – 6:94) & Greatness of God (6:95 – 101)

False Messengers Condemned

[6:93] Who is more evil than one who fabricates lies and attributes them to GOD, or says, “I have received divine inspiration,” when no such inspiration was given to him, or says, “I can write the same as GOD’s revelations?” If only you could see the transgressors at the time of death! The angels extend their hands to them, saying, “Let go of your souls. Today, you have incurred a shameful retribution for saying about GOD other than the truth, and for being too arrogant to accept His revelations.
[6:94] “You have come back to us as individuals, just as we created you the first time, and you have left behind what we provided for you. We do not see with you the intercessors that you idolized and claimed that they will help you. All ties among you have been severed; the idols you set up have abandoned you.” 

Greatness of God

[6:95] GOD is the One who causes the grains and the seeds to crack and germinate. He produces the living from the dead, and the dead from the living. Such is GOD; how could you deviate!
[6:96] At the crack of dawn, He causes the morning to emerge. He made the night still, and He rendered the sun and the moon to serve as calculation devices. Such is the design of the Almighty, the Omniscient.
[6:97] And He is the One who made the stars to guide you during the darkness, on land and on sea. We thus clarify the revelations for people who know.
[6:98] He initiated you from one person, and decided your path, as well as your final destiny. We thus clarify the revelations for people who understand.
[6:99] He is the One who sends down from the sky water, whereby we produce all kinds of plants. We produce from the green material multitudes of complex grains, palm trees with hanging clusters, and gardens of grapes, olives and pomegranate; fruits that are similar, yet dissimilar. Note their fruits as they grow and ripen. These are signs for people who believe.
[6:100] Yet, they set up beside GOD idols from among the jinns, though He is the One who created them. They even attribute to Him sons and daughters, without any knowledge. Be He glorified. He is the Most High, far above their claims.
[6:101] The Initiator of the heavens and the earth. How can He have a son, when He never had a mate? He created all things, and He is fully aware of all things. 

In verse 98 God says that He initiated you from “one person”

[4:1] O people, observe your Lord; the One who created you from one being, and created from it its mate, then spread from the two many men and women. You shall regard GOD, by whom you swear, and regard the parents. GOD is watching over you.

Perhaps this is because all humans spawned from Adam. From Adam God created Eve. Could have been a genetic clone.

What does it mean that God “decided our path”?
God decided when we were born into this world, where we would be born, who our parents and siblings will be etc. Each person’s life is custom tailored for that specific individual to bring out their true convictions. 

In verse 100 it says that they set up idols from among the jinns. Do we have modern day examples of this?

[37:158] They even invented a special relationship between Him and the jinns. The jinns themselves know that they are subservient. 

[34:40] On the day when He summons them all, He will say to the angels, “Did these people worship you?”
[34:41] They will answer, “Be You glorified. You are our Lord and Master, not them. Instead, they were worshiping the jinns; most of them were believers therein.”
