Today's Ayat for Wednesday, 2019-05-22 / 17 Ramadan 1440
Each has guardian angels before him and behind him, who watch him at God's command. God does not change the condition of a peoples lot, unless they change what is in their hearts. But when God decrees punishment for a people, none can ward it off. Besides Him, they have no protector.
-- ar-Ra`d 13:11 as rendered by Wahiduddin Khan
لَهُ مُعَقِّبَاتٌ مِّن بَيْنِ 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
God would never withdraw a favour that He had conferred upon a people unless they change what is in their hearts. God is all hearing and all-knowing.
-- al-Anfal 8:53 as rendered by Wahiduddin Khan
وَمَا لَهُم مِّن دُونِهِ مِن وَالٍ
IslamAwakened has been asked to add commentary to our Today's Ayat
This is today's comment:
Twice our Creator reminds us that our selves and our actions are reflected in His help
We are told this both positively and negatively
His blessings are bestowed when we make the effort to change ourselves for the good
His blessings can be removed should we change ourselves for the worse
This is an OPINION.
We must always read the verse(s) for ourselves!
