You do not engage in any matter or recite any of the Qur'an or do any action without Our witnessing you while you are occupied with it.

When your sister went and said, "Shall I direct you to someone who will take care of him?" that was how We returned you to your mother so that she might delight her eyes and not be grieved.

Then He sent down to you, after the distress, security, restful sleep overtaking a group of you, whereas another group became prey to anxious thoughts, thinking other than the truth about Allah - thoughts belonging to the Time of Ignorance* -  saying, 'Do we have any say in the affair at all?' Say, 'The affair belongs entirely to Allah.' They are concealing things inside themselves which they do not disclose to you, saying, 'If we had only had a say in the affair, none of us would have been killed here in this place.' Say, 'Even if you had been inside your homes, those people for whom killing was decreed would have gone out to their place of death.' So that Allah might test what is in your breasts and purge what is in your hearts. Allah knows the contents of your hearts. (Surah Al 'Imran,154)

It is He who created you from clay and then decreed a fixed term, and another fixed term is specified with Him. Yet you still have doubts!( Surat Al-An'am, 2)

Nothing occurs, either in the earth or in yourselves,without its being in a Book before We make it happen.That is something easy for Allah. (Surat Al-Hadid, 22)

And were it not for a prior word from your Lord, and a specified term, it would inevitably have already taken place. (Surah Ta Ha, 129)

Mankind was only one community but then they differed, and had it not been for a prior Word from your Lord, they would already have been judged in respect of the differences between them. (Surah Yunus, 19)

Say: 'Nothing can happen to us except what Allah has ordained for us. He is Our Master. It is in Allah that the muminun should put their trust.' (Surat At-Tawba, 51)

If Allah afflicts you with harm, no one can remove it except Him. If He desires good for you, no one can avert His favour. He bestows it on whichever of His slaves He wills. He is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful.(Yunus,107)

(Surah Saba', 3)

No misfortune occurs except by Allah's permission.Whoever has iman in Allah - He will guide his heart. Allah has knowledge of all things. (Surat At-Taghabun, 11)

The keys of the Unseen are in His possession. No one knows them but Him. He knows everything in the land and sea. No leaf falls without His knowing it. There is no seed in the darkness of the earth, and nothing moist or dry which is not in a Clear Book. (Surat Al-An'am, 59)
