And that He (Exalted is He!) wills existent
things, and directs events. And that nothing may exist,
whether good or evil, beneficial or harmful, except by His
decree and will. Whatever He wills is, whatever He does not
is not. Should all creatures unite to move or halt a single
atom in the universe, in the absence of His will, they would
be unable to do so.
"And that He (Exalted is He!) is Hearer,
Seer, Speaker of a Speech that is pre-existent and does not
resemble the speech of creatures. And that the Mighty Quran
is His ancient speech, His Book which He sent down upon His
Messenger and Prophet Muhammad (may He bless him and grant
him peace). 'And that He (Glorious is He!) is Creator of
all things and their Provider, Who neither disposes them as
He wills; neither rival nor opponent is there in His realm.
He gives to whomsoever He wills and withholds from
whomsoever He wills. He is not questioned about His actions,
rather they are questioned [Quran 21:231]
And that He (Exalted is He') is Wise in His
acts, Just in His decrees, so that no injustice or tyranny
can be imaginable on His part, and that no one has any
rights over Him. Should He (Glorious is He) destroy all His
creatures in the blink of an eye; He would be neither unjust
nor tyrannous to them, for they are His dominion and His
slaves. He has the right to do as He pleases in His
dominion, and your Lord is not a tyrant to Iris slaves.
[Quran 41:46] He rewards His slaves for obeying Him out of
grace and generosity, and punishes them when they rebel out
of His wisdom and justice. And that to obey Him is an
obligation binding upon His bondsmen, as was made clear
through the speech of His messengers (upon them be peace).
