CHAPTER ONE
Fate and Destiny (Al-Qadaa wa Al-Qadar)
1
There has not been a topic that is more likely discussed, argued and debatedas that topic of Al-Qadaa wa Al-Qadar. That’s because everyone wants to argueit, whether one is knowledgeable or ignorant about it. And a question beingalways asked is whether everything happening to us is pre-destined? So whyis the call to Account then? And can I do anything that is not by the will of Allah?The questioning goes even further; if this is the truth, where I can’t do exceptwhat Allah has determined for me, why Allah punishes me by sending me toHell? Is it just to be called to Account in the Hereafter?You will find that, this question is asked only by those who has transgressedagainst their souls and disobeyed Allah. On the other hand, you will not findanyone saying, that since everything is pre-determined by Allah, then why willAllah bless me with the Jannah
2
? Definitely, that is a question that you never hear. You always hear people saying that the call to Account is unjust, becauseour actions have already been pre-destined by Allah.Allah (SWT
3
) has given man the freedom of choice throughout his life. Fromhere came the debate; that is some people would think that the freedom of choice given to man conflicts with the consent of Allah in His universe, which isvery far from the truth.And those people refer to Al-Ayaat Alkarima
4
<<But ye will not, unless Allah wills; for Allah is full of Knowledge and Wisdom>>
Ayah 30 from surat Al-InsanThey also refer to the words of Allah (SWT) to Al-Rasoul (PBUH)
5
<<Verily,you (O Muhamed PBUH) will not be able to guide whom you like, bu Allah guides whom He wills>>
Ayah 56 from surat Al-QasasAnd Allah also says
