Thanks for your precious time to reply my question.
Suppose I apply for Hajj and my application is not approved for certain reasons or my name does not come out in the ballot. People tend to say: Allah has not called you yet. What I am asking is that is this true? And if it is then how would you substantiate it through the Quran or Ḥadīth?
My children, aged 16-19 years usually ask me lot of questions to understand our religion. One of their recent questions has forced me to seek your help.
My question concerns the role of dua “supplication”. We are taught that a lot of issues such as marriage, provision and life have been predestined by Allah? Can supplication effect destiny?
I have read the following statement in a monthly journel 'ishrāq': "Allah Almighty has created this set up in a manner that every human being depends on the other human being." On the other hand, all mankind pray that they not become dependent on others. Is this prayer not reasonable?
What part does predestination contribute in life of mankind regarding their sustenance and other facilities?
