Salam Brothers and Sisters,

 

Can please explain the meaning of this verse in the Holy Quran to me from Surah al Israa:

 

 17:11 And man invokes (Allah) for evil as he invokes (Allah) for good and man is ever hasty.

 

Many thanks

[shakir 17:11] And man prays for evil as he ought to pray for good, and man is ever hasty.
[Pickthal 17:11] Man prayeth for evil as he prayeth for good; for man was ever hasty.
[Yusufali 17:11] The prayer that man should make for good, he maketh for evil; for man is given to hasty (deeds).
[Pooya/Ali Commentary 17:11]

Aqa Mahdi Puya says:

 

This verse refers to the following situations:

(i) Helplessness produces worry and anger. Losing the sense of equilibrium, sometimes man, in such a situation, feels disgusted and curses himself and his people as sincerely as he prays for good and blessings.

 

(ii) Ignoring the ultimate consequences, sometimes, man prays for immediate gains and advantages .

 

(iii) He also prays for forbidden things as he prays for lawful things.

In all such circumstances, if Allah accepts the prayers directed to Him, there will be unnecessary destruction, chaos and disorder, which He, as the most merciful and all-wise Lord, does not will.

one meaning is that it means that the ignorant man is ignorant because he is seeking Dunya, and for however long he is asking for things he is ignorant, because God gives the best thing to each individual that is best for his growth etc, for some men it is good to be rich and powerful, while for another his spiritual growth needs hims to be poor and helpless in order to see God, however man doesnt want what God wants for him, and instead follows his ignorant self , he follows his desires

like an implicit argument
