{29:16} And Abraham, when he said said to his people, "Worship God and watch out for Him. That is better for you, if you should know."

Quote:
{29:17} You only worship, besides God, idols, and you produce a falsehood. Indeed, those you worship besides God do not possess for you [the power of] provision. So seek from God provision and worship Him and be grateful to Him. To Him you will be returned."

I suggest,
