Allah knows it prior to its occurrence and he has recorded it in the lower my food, as Allah says in 2017 jos in Delhi gala La Jolla. See it is easy for Allah to pre recorded because Allah knows everything like a lotta so lm fit con una de fora hobbema calm so that you do not over lament your losses, nor do you become boastful on your accomplishments. The scholars tell us to prove that as humans we have choice is

00:01:01--> 00:01:42

that when we abuse the choice, we are regretful, so you cannot argue that because it was pre recorded, you were denied the choice, a lot pre recorded what you were going to do, a doctor comes in, he assesses the patient, and he says this man has 30 minutes to live. And subsequently he dies in 30 minutes. Nobody says that he died because the doctor wrote it, then we would have told him that Why did you give him 30 minutes give him three days of grace, we can call the family. The doctor only advised us in advance of something that was going to happen. So Allah has pre recorded something we were going to do. A person asked earlier the Allahu simplified taqdeer he said 30

it would be wrong to abandon the means. And it would be equally wrong to adopt the means and rely on the means. The balance between the two is the adoption of the means and the precaution but reliance on Allah because Allah is responsible for the outcome, all precautions can be taken, but the intended result is not guaranteed.

You got up early, you you know left for work early. You You know we're not negligent or reckless or careless and you wanted to arrive in time or you have a flight, but you got
