Further On Predestination And Accountability

Thanks for your precious time to reply my question.[1]

Unfortunately, the answer does not help on my question as:
We believe Allah has decided our fate well before our birth He says we cannot do good things unless He bestows us with "Hidayat".
Unlike teacher student relationship, where student himself decided not to follow teachings, we are not given choice; this is decided before our birth.
Kindly help us on right direction.
Thanks in advance.

Predestination And Accountability

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.

We Muslims believe that Allah has written in the Bok (Taqdeer) all that we are going to do in our life, even before our birth. We cannot do anything outside what has already been decided by Him as our fate. We are like "actors" who are following the directions of the director, the "GOD". Then if we do wrong things in our life, or commit sins etc., that too is as per our fate. Then why will He be punishing us on the Day of Judgment.

Kindly help me answer this question in details.

Last Judgment And Merciful God

No human being asked Allah for Paradise (Jannah). Allah forcefully put them in a severe test. Is it right to punish who fail the test? How can he be RAHMAN in this case? He is so angry with polythiesm (shirk) that He can put a soul in the extreme torture, how He can be Samad? Many ahadith in Bukhari say that Paradise (Jannah) and Hell (Jahannum) is written on Loh for every soul. A man may do bad deeds for life and at the end he will make toba and go to Jannah as per his naseeb and vice versa. What remains for the test then? And where is mercy (Rahma)?

Supplication For Safety From Destitution

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?

Predetermination And The Right To Choose A Partner

I am Naveed Ahmed Nizamani. I am a student. I most often watch your program "GHAMIDI" cordially. I have a question for you. So many people usually make a discussion on "destiny". People say that couples have already been predetermined by God. And people have no authority on their children to get them married by their own choice. Do I have authority to make a decision for my couple or has it already been decided by God? Does Allah have authority to make couples for the people?
