Calamity of God on wrongdoers

Surah Huud (Hud) – 11

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim. 
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)


(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)

وَمَا كَانَ رَبُّكَ لِيُهْلِكَ ٱلْقُرَىٰ بِظُلْمٍ وَأَهْلُهَا مُصْلِحُونَ (117

117.  And thy Lord is not such as to destroy townships unjustly while their folk are righteous. 117.  Wa  maa  kaana  Rabbuka  li-yuh-likal-quraa  bi-zulminw-wa  ‘ahluhaa  musli-huun.  




In this verse, way of escaping from worldly disasters and destruction has been described in very clear words that, in which township, the righteous people are more than enough and they let not commit evils to the evildoers by their influence and advice, then the entire township will remain saved from ruin, so that the people may know a very important rule and they are saved from the calamity of Allah Almighty.


It is commanded that Allah Almighty does not destroy such township; people of which continue correcting their condition every time. Oppression and tyranny are against the grace of God Almighty. He can ruin any township any time without any cause if He will. There is no-one who may criticize against Him.


Moreover, He has settled some Rules in the world, according to which; every work of here is performed. The wise people have examined Them and they have recorded results of their experiments in their books and maxims. There is a proverb of a wise man! I am sure that no disaster will come on me on the condition that I do not behave deceitfully. One more person, who meditates in the human life, says! When you are afflicted, in its bottom, there will be any fault of your own, whether apparently you are unable to see or seem it.


The same Rule has been presented by Holy Qur’an in a common form, not at one place; but on various occasions, so that it may be kept remembered well. That common form is that; maximum people of which nation continue striving for saving the people from sins, correction of their nation and condition of their people, that nation will be saved from destruction. But the maximum people of which township or country are involved in wickedness and immorality, and those people are less in numbers who prevent from evil deeds, even that there is none who listen to them, then it is within the reach of the conception that Allah Almighty will send such common calamity on them that none would be saved. (God protect).
