Idols Disown Their Worshipers (10:28 – 10:33)

Idols Disown Their Worshipers

[10:28] On the day when we summon them all, we will say to those who worshiped idols, “We have summoned you, together with your idols.” We will have them confront each other, and their idols will say to them, “We had no idea that you idolized us.
[10:29] “GOD suffices as a witness between us and you, that we were completely unaware of your worshiping us.”
[10:30] That is when each soul will examine everything it had done. They will be returned to GOD, their rightful Lord and Master, and the idols they had fabricated will disown them.
[10:31] Say, “Who provides for you from the heaven and the earth? Who controls all the hearing and the eyesight? Who produces the living from the dead, and the dead from the living? Who is in control of all things?” They would say, “GOD.” Say, “Why then do you not observe the commandments?”
[10:32] Such is GOD, your rightful Lord. What is there after the truth, except falsehood? How could you disregard all this?
[10:33] This is what your Lord’s decision does to those who choose to be wicked: they cannot believe. 

In regards to 10:28 – 10:29 

On The Day Of Resurrection

[5:116] GOD will say, “O Jesus, son of Mary,* did you say to the people, ‘Make me and my mother idols beside GOD’?” He will say, “Be You glorified. I could not utter what was not right. Had I said it, You already would have known it. You know my thoughts, and I do not know Your thoughts. You know all the secrets. Footnote [5:117] “I told them only what You commanded me to say, that: ‘You shall worship GOD, my Lord and your Lord.’ I was a witness among them for as long as I lived with them. When You terminated my life on earth, You became the Watcher over them. You witness all things. [5:118] “If You punish them, they are Your constituents. If You forgive them, You are the Almighty, Most Wise.” [5:119] GOD will proclaim, “This is a day when the truthful will be saved by their truthfulness.” They have deserved gardens with flowing streams. They abide therein forever. GOD is pleased with them, and they are pleased with Him. This is the greatest triumph. [5:120] To GOD belongs the sovereignty of the heavens and the earth, and everything in them, and He is Omnipotent. 

10:31 shows the difference between truly believing and lip service. 

[23:78] He is the One who granted you the hearing, the eyesight, and the brains. Rarely are you appreciative. [23:79] He is the One who established you on earth, and before Him you will be summoned. [23:80] He is the One who controls life and death, and He is the One who alternates the night and day. Do you not understand? [23:81] They said what their ancestors said. [23:82] They said, “After we die and become dust and bones, we get resurrected? [23:83] “Such promises were given to us and to our parents in the past. These are no more than tales from the past.”

Most Believers are Destined for Hell*

[23:84] Say, “To whom belongs the earth and everyone on it, if you know?” [23:85] They will say, “To GOD.” Say, “Why then do you not take heed?” [23:86] Say, “Who is the Lord of the seven universes; the Lord of the great dominion?” [23:87] They will say, “GOD.” Say, “Why then do you not turn righteous?” [23:88] Say, “In whose hand is all sovereignty over all things, and He is the only one who can provide help, but needs no help, if you know?” [23:89] They will say, “GOD.” Say, “Where did you go wrong?”
*23:84-89 Belief in God is valid only if one recognizes God’s qualities, such as the fact that God controls everything (8:17). Believers who do not know God are not really believers. Most believers nullify their belief by idolizing such powerless idols as the prophets and saints (6:106).

In regards to 10:32

Quran: Absolute Truth

[39:33] As for those who promote the truth, and believe therein, they are the righteous. [39:34] They will get everything they wish, at their Lord. Such is the reward for the righteous. [39:35] GOD remits their sinful works, and rewards them generously for their good works.

10:33 shows that it is our choice to believe or disbelieve
