Allah does not plot

865

Someone asked Imam Reza (as) regarding the verse of the Holy Quran: And they plotted (makaru) and Allah (also) plotted (makarallah) [3:54]

He (as) said: Allah (swt) does not plot (la yumkar), but He (swt) recompenses (yujazihum) them the recompense (jazaa) of the plotting (makar).

[Uyun Akhbar Reza, 1: 126/19, Al Tawhid 1/163]
