Ayah Of The Day

Excerpt of Surah 13, verse 11:

"Verily, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change the condition of what is within themselves."

Imam al-Qurtubi (d. 671/1272) writes: “Allah’s statement: {Verily, Allah will not change the condition of a people unless there is a change of what is in themselves}: Here Allah Most High informs us in this verse that He will not change a qawm until change occurs in them whether from themselves or those in charge of them or those put over them for a reason […] However, the verse does not mean that punishment will be sent by Allah for someone who commits a sin, rather punishment and affliction maybe be sent down due to the sins of others based on what the Prophet replied to when asked [s: by his companions]: ‘are we going to be destroyed even when we have righteous people amongst us?’ where he said: ‘yes, when filth and corruption becomes prevalent’.

And Allah knows best.
