Muhammad broke many idols in the world, so that (religious) communities were saying, "O (our Sustaining) Lord!" If it had not been for Muhammad's efforts, you also would have worshiped idols like your ancestors. This head of yours has escaped from prostrating to idols, so that you may recognize his claim (of gratitude) upon the (religious) community. If you speak, talk about gratitude for this liberation, so that he may also free you from the inward idol.
