But when Allah wills a people’s punishment, there can be no turning back of it, and they will find besides Him no protector

Surat Ar-Ra`d (The Thunder) – سورة الرعد

يَدَيْهِ وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِ يَحْفَظُونَهُ مِنْ أَمْرِ اللَّهِ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُغَيِّرُ مَا بِقَوْمٍ حَتَّىٰ يُغَيِّرُوا مَا بِأَنفُسِهِمْ ۗ وَإِذَا أَرَادَ اللَّهُ بِقَوْمٍ سُوءًا فَلَا مَرَدَّ لَهُ ۚ وَمَا لَهُم مِّن دُونِهِ مِن وَالٍ

For each (person), there are angels in succession, before and behind him.They guard him by the Command of Allah. Verily! Allah will not change the good condition of a people as long as they do not change their state of goodness themselves (by committing sins and by being ungrateful and disobedient to Allah). But when Allah wills a people’s punishment, there can be no turning back of it, and they will find besides Him no protector. | QS 13:11

AL Kitabah — The Writings

Believing that Allah has written everything about the creation before even creating it, this writing is in Umm’ul Kitaab, Mother of the Book — also called: Al-Lauh Al-Mahfuz (Preserved Tablet).

Surat Al-Ĥaj (The Pilgrimage) – سورة الحج

أَلَمْ تَعْلَمْ أَنَّ اللَّهَ يَعْلَمُ مَا فِي السَّمَاءِ وَالْأَرْضِ ۗ إِنَّ ذَٰلِكَ فِي كِتَابٍ ۚ إِنَّ ذَٰلِكَ عَلَى اللَّهِ يَسِيرٌ

Do not you know that Allah knows All that is in the Heaven and on earth? Verily, it is all in the book. Verily! That is easy for Allah | QS 22:70

The Prophet (PBUH) said: Allah had prewritten the ordained measures [and due proportions] of the creation — fifty thousand years before the creation of the heavens and the earth, and His Arsh was on the water) [Muslim 1397].

This writing is final and never changes, however there’s other writings that come after, and that can change if Allah wills so.

Surat Ar-Ra`d (The Thunder) – سورة الرعد

يَمْحُو اللَّهُ مَا يَشَاءُ وَيُثْبِتُ ۖ وَعِندَهُ أُمُّ الْكِتَابِ

Allah blots out what He wills and confirms (what He wills). And with Him is the Mother of the Book (Al-Lauh Al-Mahfuz) | QS 13:39

So, we know now how to decipher the above verses — by both making du’a (supplications) and making strong efforts, that He may guide us on His straight path.

Aamiin Ya Rabbi
