People start scratching their heads and they say, Well, if Allah has written all of this, then why did he bring me on to the earth? Well Hang on, you don't know your results of your examination. So you have to come down to earth. The fact that Allah knows it and the fact that Allah has written it does not make you a person who should now give up because if that was the case, then obviously you would be the fool.

00:00:22 --> 00:00:32

A man came at the time of America, Pablo, the Allahu anhu. According to one of the narrations he had, he needed to be punished because he stole

00:00:33 --> 00:01:13

so he comes to America for the Allahu anhu. And he uses the same line he says, oh, Omar Oh amule meaning how can you punish me for having stolen when it was predestined? My deeds were already written by Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now that's quite a good argument. If you were to look at it on top of the law and was one ahead of this man, he says, well, let's punish this man because it was predestined that we were going to punish him as well. Wow. So these deeds, it goes to show that you cannot use an as an excuse the fact that Allah has predestined things for you to either give up or to do as you please or not to do things.

00:01:15 --> 00:01:48

This is part of the plan, have Allah subhanho wa Taala where he has predestined things yet, according to you, it seems that you are doing whatever you want and whatever you wish, you're thinking in a specific way. It is some unique explanation we will never fully understand the concept of predestiny but we need to keep working towards the pleasure of Allah as best as we can. And by his will one day we will find that indeed, what was predestined was the best for us. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy for us to understand
