Pearl of Wisdom

when interpreting the Qur'anic verse: ''And most of them do not believe in Allah without ascribing partners to Him, 'This is in reference to man's statement: Were it not for 'x' I would surely have perished , or Were it not for 'x' I would indeed have been afflicted or Were it not for 'x' my family would be at a loss. Do you not see that he has associated a partner to Allah in His Kingdom giving him sustenance and repelling misfortune from him?' He was subsequently asked, 'What if one were to say, Were it not for Allah granting me x's help, I would have perished ...? Imam replied, 'There is nothing wrong with saying things like this.'
