[60:5] – Seeking Refuge Against Being A Tool By Which Allah Misleads The Wrongdoers, And An Invocation For Allah’s Forgiveness

رَبَّنَا لَا تَجْعَلْنَا فِتْنَةً لِلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا وَاغْفِرْ لَنَا رَبَّنَا ۖ إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ الْعَزِيزُ الْحَكِيمُ.

Our Lord, make us not [objects of] torment for the disbelievers and forgive us, our Lord. Indeed, it is You who is the Exalted in Might, the Wise.

Rabbana la tajalna fitnatallilladhina kafaru waghfir lana Rabbana innaka AntalAzizulhakim.

Just as Allah guides people in accordance with His Mercy and Judgment, He also misguides those who deserve misguidance on account of what their own hands have wrought and the rejection of His signs. One of the means by which Allah misguides the disbelievers is to grant them victory over sinful and transgressive Muslims. Hence, on the one hand, Muslims are punished for their sins and for turning their backs on Allah’s commands, while on the other hand, the Unbelievers are led further astray, for their victory and authority over Muslims cause them to think that they have the truth. -Tafseer As-Sa’di and others.
