Accountability and Punishment is Postponed- Surah Nahl Verse 61 Quran

Brief Verse Interpretation / Tafsir

In this verse we learn that if Allah wanted to punish the wrongdoers in the earth, not a single creature would have been alive on the earth because we all have sinned at some point of our lives. So, the accountability and the punishment is postponed until later. Allah has written a lifespan for everyone and when that hour comes, none can escape it.
