Calamity and guidance in surat Tabaghun.

Bismi'llah ar-Rahman ar-Rahim...for the sake of Prophet Muhammad saws and Sheikh Nazim may Allah protect his secret.

I was reading the sura "Tabaghun" often translated as "Mutual Loss and Gain." yesterday. Yusuf Ali says it is one of the eight short Medinan suras. The following ayat stood out in the light of recent events in my life.

064.011 YUSUFALI: No kind of calamity can occur, except by the leave of Allah: and if any one believes in Allah, (Allah) guides his heart (aright): for Allah knows all things.
PICKTHAL: No calamity befalleth save by Allah's leave. And whosoever believeth in Allah, He guideth his heart. And Allah is Knower of all things.
SHAKIR: No affliction comes about but by Allah's permission; and whoever believes in Allah, He guides aright his heart; and Allah is Cognizant of all things.
