“Shirk” = syntheism of the “Mushrik” (one who makes other gods partners with God), a word pronounced
So when she saw his beauty and grace (for indeed he was like the radiant moon) the syntheism of love gat hold of her heart as it were a flaming fire, and they fell to talk and converse.
[FN#20] i.e. We are forced to love him only, and ignore giving him a rival (referring to Koranic denunciations of "Shirk," or attributing a partner to Allah, the religion of plurality, syntheism not polytheism): see, he walks tottering under the weight of his back parts wriggling them whilst they are rounded like the revolving heavens.
Replied he, 'Bear in mind these two necessaries, Shun syntheism [FN#344] and harm not any of Allah's creatures.'
