Divine Control

Qur’aanic Verse 26:20:



20. Qala faAAaltuha ithan waana mina alddalleena


20. Moses said, “I did it while I was among those who go astray.”4

Study Note:

4. Moses’ reference here was to the incident wherein he was instrumental in killing a member of Pharaoh’s people [refer Verse 28:15]. On this charge of manslaughter, Pharaoh could punish Moses with the death penalty; but he did not! Allah Almighty did work on the mind of the Pharaoh to save Moses. HE does so control every human mind, and everything else besides! Anyone who does not really believe in this Divine Control is not a believer at all, even though one may exhibit a show of belief by offering salat and observing fasts etc.

 The above is an extract from Qur’aanic Studies Manzil V, which will soon, inshaAllah, be published on Amazon Kindle. Manzil IMabzil II,  Manzil III and Manzil IV of the series are already published.

  1. ASLKM Shafi sb,

    Agreed; however, please also help me to understand the concept of free will.


    • Allah Almighty has given the free will just to test whether a human being uses it to believe in Him without actually seeing Him.

  2. Sura Ash Shuaraa 26/20

    Moses said ” I did not kill him intentionally.I had punched him and I never expected that he would die of a punch.(28/15)

  3. Does this mean we are robots and make no choices in our lives other than to believe or not believe?

    • Robots make no choices. They just obey commands. But we make conscious choices almost every moment of our lives. The choices we make largely depend on whether we believe or not.
