But made no reservation, (“If it be Allah’s Will”).
We must always remember, in all our plans, that
they depend for their success on how far they accord
with Allah’s Will and Plan. His universal Will is supreme
over all affairs.
These foolish men had a secret plan to defraud the poor
of their just rights, but they were put into a position
where they could not do so. In trying to frustrate others,
they were themselves frustrated.
