|Creation, Provision, Life and Death are all in the Hand of Allah Allah says:|
﴿اللَّهُ الَّذِى خَلَقَكُمْ ثُمَّ رَزَقَكُمْ﴾
(Allah is He Who created you, then provided food for you,) means, He is the Creator and Provider. He brings man forth from his mother's womb naked and knowing nothing, not able to see or hear, and having no strength. Then He provides him with all these things, giving him household effects, clothing, wealth, possessions and earnings.
(then will cause you to die,) means, after this life.
(then (again) He will give you life.) means, on the Day of Resurrection.
﴿هَلْ مِن شُرَكَآئِكُمْ﴾
(Is there any of your partners) means, those whom you worship instead of Allah,
﴿مَّن يَفْعَلُ مِن ذَلِكُمْ مِّن شَىْءٍ﴾
(that do anything of that) meaning, none of them are able to do any of that. But Allah is the One Who is Independent in His powers of creation, provision, and giving life and death. Then He will resurrect His creation on the Day of Resurrection. This is why, after all this He says:
﴿سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ﴾
(Glory be to Him! And Exalted be He above all that they associate. ) meaning, exalted and sanctified and glorified be He far above having any partner, peer, equal, son or father, for He is the One, the Unique, the Self-Sufficient Master, Who begets not nor was He begotten, and there is none comparable unto Him.
﴿ظَهَرَ الْفَسَادُ فِى الْبَرِّ وَالْبَحْرِ بِمَا كَسَبَتْ أَيْدِى النَّاسِ لِيُذِيقَهُمْ بَعْضَ الَّذِى عَمِلُواْ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَرْجِعُونَ - قُلْ سِيرُواْ فِى الاٌّرْضِ فَانْظُرُواْ كَيْفَ كَانَ عَـقِبَةُ الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلُ كَانَ أَكْثَرُهُمْ مُّشْرِكِينَ ﴾
(41. Evil has appeared in Al-Barr and Al-Bahr because of what the hands of men have earned, that He may make them taste a part of that which they have done, in order that they may return.) (42. Say: "Travel in the land and see what was the end of those before (you)! Most of them were idolators.'')
