About this episode

An Excerpt from the talk, 'Islam, Iman & Iḥsan: The Ḥadīth of Jibril Part 2/4' - Delivered by Shaykh Riyadh ul Haq on 12th February 2016 at Al Kawthar Academy, Leicester (UK)

Human beings have accomplished great achievements. We have mapped the human genome; explored the brain using MRI scanners and have gone down to the microscopic level of DNA and RNA. We pride ourselves on our technological advancements and exploration of the oceans and other planets - yet despite this, we still don't know who we are. What gives us life? What makes us human?

Our minds may be astounding, but we are limited in our capacity, ability and our senses to understand the soul/ego/mind and how it functions. We were not made witness to the creation of the Universe, nor were we made witness to the creation of our own selves. How can we then purport to know what happened at the beginning of creation, what will happen later and how can we purport to know the mystery of Qadr (Fate)?

Learn from this excerpt the level of our intelligence and how one can understand Qadr using examples from the Qur'an and Hadith.
