Who is there who could provide for you if He withholds His provision? Yet still they obstinately persist in insolence and evasion. Who is better guided: he who goes groveling on his face or he who walks upright on a straight path? (Surat al-Mulk, 21-22)
It is Almighty Allah Who grants all blessings to people, makes them come into existence, provides them with all kinds of provisions and gives various pleasures to soul. Despite this fact however some people, as Allah relates in the Qur’an, ‘obstinately persist’ in disbelief. However by such persistence they merely torment themselves since they are in need of Allah for everything. People who do not acknowledge that Allah holds sway over everything are in the position of those, as related in the Qur’an, “who go groveling on their faces”, since they are deluded to think that they can accomplish everything by themselves. Unable to submit themselves to the flawless destiny created by Allah, they always feel sorry. They merely struggle for their worldly ambitions without thinking about the Hereafter and upon failure to accomplish their goals they despair or become nervous. However aware that Allah creates everything flawlessly in the destiny, believers constantly feel contented and at ease even under seemingly undesirable situations since as a requisite of the verse, “...Fighting is prescribed for you even if it is hateful to you. It may be that you hate something when it is good for you and it may be that you love something when it is bad for you. Allah knows and you do not know” (Surat al-Baqara, 216), they know that Allah absolutely creates it with goodness.
While there is the opportunity to submit oneself in Allah’s superior wisdom and live the best of life, unbelievers’ suffering because of their insistence in denial is an obvious scheme of satan. Satan makes people get into a race of superiority by making them be grabbed by feelings of arrogance that they can never attain. This in turn renders people incapable of employing their wisdom and conscience. Consequently people who act in compliance with the desires of their lower-selves swerve from the right guidance of the Qur’an and get into the most complicated, difficult and annoying paths. These people who assume themselves to be wise and smart ultimately attain nothing but meet a heavy loss. As well as spending an unhappy and disquiet life in this world, they head for an eternal life of torment in Hell. However in the Qur’an Allah relates the easiest way of living and grants feelings of security and peace upon people when they believe. With the genuine faith they have believers experience the utmost bliss in this world and because they devote their lives to Allah, are rewarded with the Garden for all eternity.
