Tafseer of Surah Al-Qasas (The Narration) Ayat 67 & 68. But any that (in this life) had repented, believed, and worked righteousness, will have hopes to be among those who achieve salvation. Thy Lord does create and choose as He pleases: no choices have they (in the matter): Glory to Allah. And far is He above the partners they ascribe (to Him)! As He pleases: according to His own Will and Plan. Allah is not dependent on other people for advice or help. He has no partners. All creation is an act of His Will, and no one can direct Him how or why certain things should be, because He is supreme in wisdom and knowledge. He chooses His messengers also by His own unfettered choice. Inspiration or spiritual knowledge and dignity cannot be judged by our relative or temporary standards. Worldly greatness or even wisdom does not necessarily go with spiritual insight.
