“Each acts according to his disposition”

Abu Bakr as-Siddiq radhiallahu ‘anhu said, “I recited the Qur’an from its beginning to its end and I did not see any ayah more beautiful and full of hope than His Saying, Exalted be He:

“Say, ‘Each acts according to his disposition.’”
[al-Isra’: 84]

For indeed, the slave is disposed towards nothing but disobedience [‘isyaan]; and the Lord is disposed towards nothing but forgiveness [ghufraan].

[Tafsir al-Qurtubi]
