Sura 34
Aya 39
قُل إِنَّ رَبّي يَبسُطُ الرِّزقَ لِمَن يَشاءُ مِن عِبادِهِ وَيَقدِرُ لَهُ ۚ وَما أَنفَقتُم مِن شَيءٍ فَهُوَ يُخلِفُهُ ۖ وَهُوَ خَيرُ الرّازِقينَ

Yusuf Ali

Say: “Verily my Lord enlarges and restricts the Sustenance1 to such of his servants as He pleases: and nothing do ye spend in the least (in His cause) but He replaces it: for He is2 the Best of those who grant Sustenance.
  • Cf. 34:36, above, and n. 3843.
  • Even in the seeming inequality of distribution of the good things of life, God has a wise and merciful purpose: for nothing arises by chance. He is the best to give us, now and evermore, just those things which subserve our real needs and advance our inner development.
