 BismEm


"His Word is the Truth, and His will be the Sovereignty on the day when the trumpet is blown."   (6:73)  Surah Al-Anam


When Allah, The Almighty, says that on the Day of Judgment, Sovereignty will belong to Him .. how would we explain this if someone asks that doesn't sovereignty already belong to Him even now?  Or, if someone misunderstands the meaning of it by thinking that sovereignty will belong to Allah only on the Day of Judgment and not now.  How would we correct such a notion?

Okay, get your point sis.   The message of Verse 6:73 is conveyed in several other verses too.

On the Day of Judgment, Sovereignty will belong entirely to Him.  It goes without saying that this doesn't mean complete sovereignty does not already belong to Him now and at all times since the creation of the earth and before. All praise be to Allah.

When Allah says that Sovereignty will belong to Him alone on the Last Day, He refers to the fact that that will be the time for dispensing Divine Judgment when all humans and jinn will be paid for their good and bad deeds.  They won't be allowed to make amends any longer.   While humans lived on earth, Allah allowed them to select their path of conduct.  If someone wronged their soul, they had the choice to redeem that wrong through repentance and not intentionally repeat it.   But on the Day they are raised and gathered before Allah, their record of deeds will be open before Him who will Judge them accordingly without granting them the  prerogative to correct their mistakes.  The time for that will be over.  Humans will have no other choice but to face the consequences of their deeds as per His Judgement.  He will forgive whom He wills.   Similarly, the reward of the righteous as per His Judgment will be unchangeable by others.   This brings the concept of ONLY the Rule of Allah being prevalent on the Day of Judgment. 

If one asks, what prevents Allah's rule entirely from existing now?  The answer is, Allah's rule exists entirely even now.  If He wants, He can intervene at any time and take away from humans and jinn the freedom He has given them to choose their path of conduct.  But the main purpose of life on earth is to be tested.   Thus, He has decided on His own authority to give us the freedom to make our own choices and decisions in earthly life only.  Yet there are times during earthly life as well when Allah may decide to intervene and change the course of one's life, the reasons for which are only known to Him.   But generally, as ordained by Him, earthly life is a place for humans and jinn to make their own choices.  This won't be so on the Day of Resurrection.

Many thanks sis.  This helped.  I mean, I had similar thoughts in my mind but just wanted someone to express them correctly for me as a re-confirmation.  Thanks again.  As usual, you are great at clarifying vital matters pertaining to the Truth.

This also brings the concept of fate & destiny.

"Lo! Allah changeth not the condition of a folk until they (first) change that which is in their hearts;"  (13:11)

Some folks presume that fate is preplanned or preordained by Allah from the time of a person's birth.  But from Verse 13:11, I think it would be more accurate to say that fate is known to Allah from the time of one's birth.  As for planning or ordaining one's fate, Allah does that step by step, accordingly and in response to our actions & efforts.  In other words, Allah plans everyone's fate to a large extent in accordance to the way they lead their lives and the situations that surround them.  Thus, everyone's path of life or fate is already known to Allah from the time that person is born but the details of that fate are taken care of by Him as we go along our path of life. 

This brings the clear concept of Allah giving humans/jinn the ability to choose their path of life, and thus make decisions and determine their conduct.  This also involves the many tests, trials and tribulations we go through in earthly life. Again, to a large extent, the results depend on how we handle them as per His Judgment. 

Hence, as we can see, in this world Allah has allowed us to exercise our free will at every step of our lives.  If we make the right choices, we benefit our own souls, otherwise not.  The Hereafter is the Time to reap the benefits or drawbacks of our deeds by the Will of Allah, and this is unavoidable.  Therefore, on the Day of Judgment, Sovereignty belongs wholly to Allah and humans have no say in His decisions.

That's a very welcomed and added clarification sis.  In fact I was going through the Fate and Destiny set of posts that I've also saved in my custom email file. 

I recall you had a long discussion with brother AOH who was of the view that fate is ordained by Allah from day one and is unchangeable.  But when you put the question to him that if fate ordained by Allah is unchangeable from day one, how do humans choose their path of conduct to follow Allah's guidance to which He calls us?  If fate was unchangeable from the beginning despite sincere human efforts, then that would mean that an unrighteous person was unrighteous not by choice but by compulsion.  In that case, why would Allah punish the unrighteous?  But the reason why Allah does punish the unrighteous in the Hereafter is because they were unrighteous not out of any preordained compulsions in their fate but by their own choices and decisions.  I recall, brother AOH acknowledged that this makes sense and he would study it more.  However, he never said anything again to refute it.  Obviously there's nothing to refute in it.  We carve our own fate through our own perception.  If we are wise, we grasp His guidance and keep improving ourselves, otherwise not.  Allah keeps watching everyone all the time.  Every effort and deed of people is recorded, fate is ordained by Him accordingly and Judgment in the Hereafter is accordingly too.

JazekAllah khair.   All praise be to Allah only.

Thanks again sis.
