Some people suffer from hidden Shirk

imam sadiq (a.s)

The human beings do good deeds but then they remove all the (Divine) blessings they have gained from those good deeds with some other acts or sayings; like saying to someone else: First God and then you; which is considered as the hidden Shirk (ascribing others beside God) as mentioned in Ayah 106 of Surah Yusuf says: “And most of them do not believe in Allah (SWT) unless they associate (others) with God.”
Commenting on the above holy verse, Imam Sadiq (A.S) said: If the human being say: If it was not for such a person, I would have been destroyed or if it was not for such a person, my family would have been destroyed; can’t you see by saying these words, partners have been ascribed to God who provides sustenance for him, defends him and removes difficulties from him? The narrator said: I asked Imam (A.S), can the saying be like this: If God would not have helped me through such a person, I would have been destroyed. Imam Sadiq (A.S) replied: Yes, there is no problem in that [1].
