42:30 And any misfortune that happens to you is a consequence of what your hands have earned. And He overlooks much.
57:22 No misfortune can happen on the earth, or in yourselves, except it is decreed in a record, before We bring it about. This is easy for Allah to do.
64:11 No misfortune strikes except with the permission of Allah. And whoever believes in Allah, He will guide his heart. And Allah is fully aware of all things.
AND ALLAH DOES NOT WISH ANY INJUSTICE FOR THE SERVANTS
40:29 “O my people, you have the kingship today throughout the land. But then who will save us against the torment of Allah, should it come to us?” Pharaoh said: “I am showing you that which I see, and I am guiding you in the right path.”
40:30 And the one who believed said: “O my people, I fear for you the same fate as the day of the opponents.”
40:31 “Like the fate of the people of Noah, “Aad, and Thamud, and those after them. And Allah does not wish any injustice for the servants.”
THOSE WHO DIE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE THEIR DEATH IS ALREADY PREDETERMINED BY ALLAH.
3:145 It is not permitted for a soul to die except by the permission of Allah in an appointed record. And whoever wants the reward of this world We give him of it, and whoever wants the reward of the Hereafter, We give him of it. And We will reward the thankful.
ALLAH IS NOT UNFAIR
The fact that Allah doesn’t disgrace anyone without due cause (one’s own wrongdoing), as this is unfair, has been illustrated many times over in the Quran.
Sura Aal-e-Imran talks about the tyrants of society being eventually destroyed, and — “Allah is not unfair to them but they are unfair to themselves” (3/116).
Sura Tauba, after speaking of destruction of the nations of the past, says: “Allah did not treat them cruelly, but they brought it upon them themselves” (9/70).
Also in 11/101; 16/33 and 29/40.
Sura Younis states: “Allah is not unfair to people in the slightest, but they do it to themselves” (10/44). Allah is omnipotent and Man is His (weak and vulnerable) creation.
Allah’s being cruel and unfair to Man is inconceivable. People bring tragedies to themselves by their own hands “Allah is not cruel to His creatures” (22/10).
In fact, “Allah doesn’t (even) intend to be cruel to His people” (40/31). He argues: “Why will Allah torture you if you accept (the validity of His laws) and (show that you) are convinced ( of their practical value)?” (4/147).
Allah is not a sadist. In His domain “every decision is based upon the Truth” and “everyone gets the result of one’s actions” and “no one is wronged” (39/69-70). About the time of Man’s actions bearing results, it says: “that day everyone will get what he worked for and no one will be wronged” (40/17).
Also: “Decisions will be taken justly and fairly and no one will be wronged” (10/47) & (10/54).
UNFAIRNESS BREEDS DESTRUCTION
The sins (crimes / defiance of Natural Law of Returns) which bring about the downfall of a people are numerous, the topmost being zulm (injustice, or better still, unfairness), saying clearly: The people who are unfair, have their roots cut”. (6/45) Having mentioned the destruction and fall of those nations, the Quran says: “These are the ruins of cities whose inhabitants were unfair” (18/59).
Elsewhere, it says:
“ (If they wish, history can speak to them about) Several civilizations who were caught up by Our Law of Returns because those people were unfair. Their tall buildings fell, their wells became useless and their strong fortifications fell in ruins.
Haven’t these (present day) people visited these areas yet so that (having seen those nations’ sorry end) they start being rational and begin to heed? (when someone chooses to turn a blind eye to the truth, his eyes still see but) their inner eyes (hearts) go blind and thus their thinking faculties are blunted. (22/45-46)
Narrating the eye-opening accounts of several past nations, the Quran repeats the truth:
“No settlement is destroyed unless its inhabitants are unfair”. (28/59)
Thus, the rise and fall of nations is dependent upon their own deeds. Their fate is NOT pre-determined. They themselves decide their own destiny.
