قال الله سبحانه و تعالى
وَكَذَٰلِكَ نُوَلِّي بَعْضَ الظَّالِمِينَ بَعْضًا بِمَا كَانُوا يَكْسِبُونَ
Allah, The Most High, said:
« And thus We will make some of the wrongdoers against each other for what they use to earn (of evil deeds).
Â» al-Anam, 1291
A poet once said:
ما من يد إلا يد الله فوقها و ما من ظالم إلا سيبلى بظالم
“There is no hand except Allah’s hand is over it – And there is no oppressor except that he will be trialed by another oppressor”. End quote.
Al- Imaam Ibn Katheer, may Allah have mercy upon him, said regarding the meaning of the above ayah:
“We will make some of them attack and destroy each other and we will punish them through each other, recompensing [them] in their wrongdoing and in their transgression”. End translation. [Tafseer Ibn Katheer, (204/3), print: Daarul Aathaar]
