Allah has the knowledge of the Hour and the Unseen

Question 532: Peace, mercy and blessings of Allah be upon you. O Allah send Your Peace and Blessings upon Muhammad and the Family of Muhammad the Imams and the Mahdis and send great greetings. My master and Imam and leader,
O Qa’im of the Family of Muhammad, may the peace of Allah be upon you. We would like that you interpret this verse, even in summary. What is the interpretation of His (swt) saying: {Indeed, Allah has knowledge of the Hour and sends down the rain and knows what is in the wombs. And no soul perceives what it will earn tomorrow, and no soul perceives in what land it will die. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted} [Surat Luqman 31:34]
Sender: Hussein Al-Tamimi, Iraq

Answer:
In the Name of Allah The Merciful The Intensely Merciful
All Praises belong to Allah the Lord of the Worlds
O Allah send Your Peace and Blessings upon Muhammad and the Family of Muhammad the Imams and the Mahdis and send great greetings

{Indeed, Allah has knowledge of the Hour and sends down the rain and knows what is in the wombs. And no soul perceives what it will earn tomorrow, and no soul perceives in what land it will die. Indeed, Allah is All-Knowing and All-Acquainted} in this verse Allah (swt) clarifies that the knowledge of the Unseen is with Him, and that the sustenance of the servants and their life on this Earth is in His hands and He runs them however He (swt) wills; because He is Knowing and Acquainted of what fixes the worldly life of people and that which has good for their Hereafter. This does not mean that those matters are only to Him (swt) [neither does it mean] that it is impossible that He (swt) acquaint some of His servants with those matters. Rather, it is possible that He (swt) acquaints some of His servants with whatever He wills from the Unseen, whether through a physical way or an unseen way. Rather, it is possible that He makes in their hands whatever He wills from the worldly matters or the matters of the hereafter and they dispose/deal with those matters by His (swt) Strength and Might, whether through physical ways or unseen ways. So the conclusion is that the verse clarifies that no one from among the creation can know or do something independently/separately from Allah (swt), but they can know and do by the Strength and Might of Allah, and He is the Most Merciful of all.

And peace, mercy, and blessings of Allah be upon you.
