“You are the One who puts forward (al-Muqaddim) and
You are the One who puts back (al-Mu’akkhir)
~ Saheeh al-Bukhaari #6317

Shaykh Muhammad bin Saalih al-’Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) comments:

“Whoever Allaah puts forward (with regard to something), there is none to put him back; and whoever Allaah puts back, there is none to put him forward. If the whole nation gathered to put back that which Allaah has put forward, they will not be able to do that. And if you believe in this, you will rely on Allaah, and all the people will be behind your back, and the One who will be in front of you is who? Allaah, subhaanahu wa ta’aala. ‘You are the One who puts forward and You are the One who puts back’ – the One who puts forward and the One who puts back with regard to situations, times, places, everything.”
