اِلَّا مَا شَآءَ اللہُ ؕ اِنَّہٗ یَعْلَمُ الْجَہۡرَ وَ مَا یَخْفٰی ؕ﴿۷﴾

Except what Allah wills; indeed He knows all the evident and all the concealed.

Tafsir al-Jalalain                                                                                                                        تفسیر الجلالین                                                

{إِلَّا مَا شَاءَ اللَّه} أَنْ تَنْسَاهُ بِنَسْخِ تِلَاوَته وَحُكْمه وَكَانَ صَلَّى اللَّه عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَجْهَر بِالْقِرَاءَةِ مَعَ قِرَاءَة جِبْرِيل خَوْف النِّسْيَان فَكَأَنَّهُ قِيلَ لَهُ لَا تَعْجَل بِهَا إِنَّك لَا تَنْسَى فَلَا تُتْعِب نَفْسك بِالْجَهْرِ بِهَا {إنَّهُ} تَعَالَى {يَعْلَم الْجَهْر} مِنْ الْقَوْل وَالْفِعْل {وَمَا يَخْفَى} مِنْهُمَا

Except what Allah wills, that you forget, by abrogating its recitation and its ruling — the Holy Prophet – may Allah send peace and blessings upon him – used to recite aloud as Sayyiduna Jibreel – peace be upon him – recited, due to the fear of forgetting, and so it is as though it was said to him, ‘Do not hasten in it; you will not forget, so do not weary yourself by reciting it aloud’; assuredly He, exalted be He, knows what is overt, of words and deeds, and what is hidden, of both of these.
