"O Allāh, there is none Who can avert what You grant or give what You deprive, and no fortune ever helps the fortunate against You."(1)
This is why Allāh said,
وَهُوَ الْقَاهِرُ فَوْقَ عِبَادِهِ
"And He is the Irresistible, above His servants."
Meaning, to Him the necks are subservient, the tyrants humble before Him and He has complete control over all things. The creatures have all bowed to Allāh and are humbles before His grace, honour, pride, greatness, highness and ability over all things. The creatures are insignificant before Him, for they are all under His irresistible decision and power:
"And He is the all-Wise," in all His actions.
"Well-Acquainted with all things."
Who places everything in its rightful place, grants and favours whomever deserves His favour.

Shurayh an-Nakha'i said: My wife died before me. I wish she could take from my life or that we died together. I have seen how men hit their wives. May my hand be paralysed if my hand hits Zaynab. |al-Ahkam 1/462|
