All plotting is Allah’s

Quran Chapter 13  42 (Pt-13, Stg-3) (L-1604) – درس قرآن

All plotting is Allah’s

Surah Ra-‘d (The Thunder) – 13

‘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.)

وَقَدْ مَكَرَ ٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِمْ فَلِلَّهِ ٱلْمَكْرُ جَمِيعًايَعْلَمُ مَا تَكْسِبُ كُلُّ نَفْسٍ وَسَيَعْلَمُ ٱلْكُفَّٰرُ لِمَنْ عُقْبَى ٱلدَّارِ 42

42.  And those who were before them plotted; but all plotting is Allah’s. He knoweth that which each soul earneth. The disbelievers will come to know for whom will be the sequel of the (heavenly) Home.   42.  Wa  qad  makaral-laziina  min  qab-lihim  fa-Lillaahil-makru  jamii-‘aa.  Ya’-lamu  maa  taksibu  kullu  nafs.  Wa  sa-ya’-lamul-kuffaaru  liman  ‘Uqbad-Daar.      




It is commanded that many people before these; have passed in the past. These are not the first generation who has settled here. You should think for awhile, where have they gone? They arranged for their security as much as possible by using their power and sense; and then satisfied being proud that “now we are safe, we shall suffer no injury”.


According to their knowledge, they had completed their plotting for achieving their aims, but they were careless from the plotting of Allah Almighty, whereas all plotting is of Him only. They inherited nothing because they denied Allah Almighty. And their entire arrangements had been useless.


At last, that happened which Allah Almighty willed and those people reached the recompense for their evil done. You should understand it carefully that Allah Almighty is well Aware of every individual’s good or evil deeds and He will punish the evil doers in accordance with His prescribed Rule. And He will give good reward to those who are good and believers.
At this time, these people are in unconscious sleep, but after some period, they will know that who did succeed in the Hereafter and who failed. God bless all.
