What is sheetuf?


"About the transgression of idol-worship and its origin in the mistaken concept of a sheetuf (a "partner" with God), through explaining the false concept of independent deities. This concept originates from within a person himself. The influence of a person's evil inclination, and his rebellious thoughts to search for a sheetuf of his liking, motivates him not to accept God as the only King over himself, and not to nullify himself to God's will. A person's ego, or "selfness," tells him to be separate in his views and to "be his own boss," or at least to be somewhat of an "equal partner" with God in judging his actions and deciding which of his desires he will pursue."
