Ḥakīm al-Ummat Mawlānā Ashraf ʿĀlī Thānwī says that Allah states in the Quran, “When you contract a loan between each other for a stated term, then write it down. Indeed, let a scribe write it down between you with justice.”
This displays the immense affection and compassion for us that he cannot bear to see us in financial loss; so, how can He tolerate actual harm to our life? Furthermore, why then would He deprive us from Jannah and enter us into the hell-fire? Rather it is on account of our misdeeds that we find ourselves in the hell-fire.
Allah says, “What would Allah gain from tormenting you if you give thanks (to Him) and truly believe (in Him).”
