Doesn't there seem to be a contradiction in the code and when it mentions in several verses that everything happens by the will of Allah in and furthermore, in one verse, the good is from Allah and the bad, or the evil is from yourself. Or many verses in the Quran, which mentioned that everything happened with the will of Allah subhanaw taala, as we discussed in the earlier answer, but it's mentioned in chapter four, verse number 79. All the good that happens is from Allah subhanaw taala. And all the evil is from the human beings. On the face of it, it seems to be a contradiction. But if you realize the real meaning, there's no contradiction at all. For example, the electricity comes

00:00:44--> 00:01:14

from the head power station, it's coming, the power is from that tradition. And with that began use good things, we can use equipment, we can use machinery, but if we put our finger in a live fire, we will get a shock for the power is from the headquarters head electric station, but if you put a finger and do a thing, which is not supposed to be done, then you get a shock. So, the good is from the power station, but if the power is cut from the headquarters and not get a shock,

00:01:15--> 00:01:32

but we cannot blame that because the power is coming from there, they are to blame for the shock, it is me who has put the finger in life fire. So I am to blame, but the power is coming from that electric station. Let me give you another simple example that the Father is head of the family

00:01:33--> 00:01:38

he owns and he spends on the family. Three is responsible for everything that is spent.

00:01:39--> 00:01:48

But at the same time, he gives pocket money to his son with the pocket money what the son disease. He Gamble's here, that alcohol,

00:01:49--> 00:02:01

who's to blame the person to blame for doing the sin of gambling and having intoxication is the son but the money is coming from the Father. So it is happening with the money of the Father, but who's to blame

00:02:03--> 00:02:21

the son the same way everything happens if Allah subhanaw taala. But if anything good takes place it because of Allah subhanaw taala any bad it is because of you. So hopefully the example will make you understand that there is a correlation between both these verses. There's not a contradiction, but it's the clarification
