Objects of worship

Ma'idah Verse 76 قُل أَتَعبُدونَ مِن دونِ اللَّهِ ما لا يَملِكُ لَكُم ضَرًّا وَلا نَفعًا

"Say: "Will you worship, besides Allah, something which has no power either to harm or benefit you..."

What do we think of when we read this verse? Images of idols and statues from previous times flash across our minds... But we need to stop thinking of these olden day statues and start thinking of this century ... a little green piece of paper, with a picture of some old guy on it, this has become the object of worship in our times, so when we find our lives being dictated and our minds unnecessarily preoccupied by this overwhelming pursuit of money, let us remember la yamliku lakum dhurow wa la nafa'a, and turn towards the only one worthy of worship.
