Ala-Maududi

(6:135) Say (O Muhammad!): ‘O people! Work in your place; and I too am at work. [103] Soon you will know in whose favour the ultimate decision will be. Surely the wrong-doers will not prosper.’


103. If people prefer to ignore the Prophet’s admonition and do not recant their misconduct, they are at liberty to follow their chosen path, but they should let the Prophet (peace be on him) follow his. The ultimate results of their conduct will, in due time, become evident to all – to the Prophet (peace be on him) as well as to his opponents.
