God Guides the Believers (10:9 – 10:12)

God Guides the Believers

[10:9] As for those who believe and lead a righteous life, their Lord guides them, by virtue of their belief. Rivers will flow beneath them in the gardens of bliss.
[10:10] Their prayer therein is: “Be You glorified, our god,” their greeting therein is, “Peace,” and their ultimate prayer is: “Praise be to GOD, Lord of the universe.”
[10:11] If GOD hastened the retribution incurred by the people, the way they demand provisions, they would have been annihilated long ago. However, we leave those who do not believe in meeting us in their transgressions, blundering.
[10:12] When adversity touches the human being, he implores us while lying down, or sitting, or standing up. But as soon as we relieve his adversity, he goes on as if he never implored us to relieve any hardship! The works of the transgressors are thus adorned in their eyes.

According to 10:9 the reason people are guided is because their choice to belief and for leading a righteous life and because of that God guides them by virtue of their belief. 

[17:84] Say, “Everyone works in accordance with his belief, and your Lord knows best which ones are guided in the right path.” 

[46:19] They all attain the ranks they have deserved, in accordance with their works. He will pay them for their works, without the least injustice. 

[6:132] Everyone will attain a rank commensurate with their deeds. Your Lord is never unaware of anything they do.

[21:90] We responded to him and granted him John; we fixed his wife for him. That is because they used to hasten to work righteousness, and implored us in situations of joy, as well as fear. To us, they were reverent. 

10:11 is funny that people will demand provisions (the good things), but if they believe in God and believe God is in control of provisions then therefore He should also speed up the retribution as well.
