The Quranic Rule on evil plots!

It is quite essential to understand the rules Allah has revealed in his final message the Holy Quran. Those are given as a gift for mankind from the creator presenting fundamental guidelines to understand the cause & effect of every single step we -human beings – make while living this life.

A person needs to comprehend the fact that these rules are applicable regardless of time or place until the Day of Judgment. This is stated in the Book of Creator very clearly to eliminate any sort of doubt may raise: {you will not find any change in the law of God, nor will you find divine law mutable.} [Chapter 35, Verse 43]

Because People are created differently in color, religion, tradition, culture, language, attitudes etc., then disagreements & arguments would definitely occur between one and another. Nevertheless, these disagreements and arguments may tempt some people to take it to a further step in which they will be driven to prepare evil plots against oppositionists to succeed in these conflicts.

For that specific reason, the law of God on Evil plots came clearly in the Holy Quran: {but the plotting of Evil will hem in only the authors thereof.} [Chapter 35, Verse 43]

To easily accept this fact, it has all always been said that the rules of the seen world, helps you to understand the rules of the unseen world. So, in physics, one of the common and very well-known rules is Newton’s third law which states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. And if it was/is very easy for humans to accept the fact that whatever action you do (whether good or bad) , there will be a reaction for it.

There are several beliefs and cultures believes in the Quranic Rule on Evil plots, in several religions and cultures could be identified in other names such as “Karma”.

In the holy Quran, Several stories are stated in the past which actually proves that this the rule on evil plots is a live equation and it can be activated with whatever sort of evil plots is made (intentions, plans, decisions or deeds) .

If you read the Quran carefully, you will see this rule right in front of you in many stories, and I will try to highlight only two stories just for the sake of illustration:

1-      The story of the people of the garden – Chapter 68 Verse 17- (Example of evil plot by intention):

in this story, the people of the garden has not acted yet, they only had in their hearts a confirmed intention to prevent the poor from their rights of charity, which their father used to give “We tested them, as We tested the owners of the garden, when they vowed to harvest it in the morning Without any reservation (for the poor)”. When you continue the story, you will see that the evil plot was merely in “Deprivation”. And When you read the end of the story, you will see that is exactly what they have received and they have said it clearly in Verse 27 in the same chapter “We are indeed deprived

2-      The story the People of the Elephant – chapter 105- (Example for Evil plot by decision):

One of the famous stories in the Arabian peninsula, the people of the elephant decided to demolish the holy house of Allah in Mecca , and the result was simply “ death penalty” :{  Have you not considered how your Lord dealt with the People of the Elephant?*  Did He not make their plan go wrong? *  He sent against them swarms of birds. *  Throwing at them rocks of baked clay. *  Leaving them like chewed-up leaves.}


The impact of knowing and believing in this rule can benefits in two things:

  1. The reaction you make for any action you receive: a person needs to be very careful whenever he decides to act or react with his daily life matters. it is very important to put this rule right in front of you whenever you decide to react to whatsoever of actions happening around you, whether it happens at work between coworkers, or at home between your family members, or in society between you and your neighbors, guests, and any person you get involved with for any reason, because make sure that in case you are intending, planning, deciding or actually doing any sort of evil plots , then you should what to expect for sure.
  2. Peaceful heart from the evil surroundings: you are meant to live this life with a peaceful heart once you embrace the religion of peace: { Who have believed and whose hearts have rest in the remembrance of Allah. Verily in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest!} Chapter 13 Verse 28 . knowing this rule exists and confirmed by Allah, you are not supposed to live your whole life thinking about evil plots and worry how it is going to harm you. The biggest example for this is our beloved prophet Mohamed – peace be upon him- where he was living a life knowing that the non-believers are doing all sort of evil plots a person can imagine:{ And when those who disbelieve plot against thee (O Muhammad) to wound thee fatally, or to kill thee or to drive thee forth; they plot, but Allah (also) plotted; and Allah is the best of plotters.} chapter 8 Verse 30.

From that you can see that this rule is like a balanced equation for the soul, in which you control your reactions and actions toward others knowing very clearly the limitations you do not want to cross , as well as it provides you with the amount of peace required for your heart – not worrying so much- of what others are planning or evil plotting against you or the religion you are embracing, because this rule always applies.

How Muslims Should Demand Their Rights

By His Eminence Shaikh Ahmed al Khalili, Grand Mufti of the Sultanate — A Muslim weights his deeds with the balance of piety to measures their harms and benefits and decides whether or not to embark upon done within lawful and reasonable limits. The common interest is — without a doubt — given preference over the individual interest, hence the claim of an individual’s rights is considered unlawful in Islam when it conflicts with the collective interest or undermines it, in which case the end never justifies the means. A Muslim has to contemplate both, the end and the means,
