أَيْنَمَا تَكُونُواْ يُدْرِككُّمُ ٱلْمَوْتُ وَلَوْ كُنتُمْ فِي بُرُوجٍ مُّشَيَّدَةٍ وَإِن تُصِبْهُمْ حَسَنَةٌ يَقُولُواْ هَـٰذِهِ مِنْ عِندِ ٱللَّهِ وَإِن تُصِبْهُمْ سَيِّئَةٌ يَقُولُواْ هَـٰذِهِ مِنْ عِندِكَ قُلْ كُلٌّ مِّنْ عِندِ ٱللَّهِ فَمَالِ هَـٰؤُلاۤءِ ٱلْقَوْمِ لاَ يَكَادُونَ يَفْقَهُونَ حَدِيثاً
-An-Nisâ’ ( النساء )

Al Qushairi Tafsir

[4:78] Wherever you may be, death will overtake you, though you should be in raised-up towers'. And if a good thing befalls them, they say, 'This is from God'; but if an evil thing befalls them, they say, 'This is from you'. Say, 'Everything is from God'. What is wrong with this people that they do not understand?
Death is joy to the believer and the news of its drawing near is good news to him because it is a means of reaching the Real and whoever loves to meet God, God loves to meet him.
It is said if death is inevitable, submission to His decree willingly is better than bearing it unwilling. Therefore He told them, because of the weakness of their eyes and the infirmity of their beliefs, when something good befalls them, they are joyful because of it and show gratitude. If an evil thing befalls them, they are not guided to God and the Magian disposition flows in them and they attribute it (a?āfū) to the created, but He replied to them and said: Say to them, O Muḥammad, 'Everything is from God in creating and originating, producing and inventing, decreeing and facilitating'.
