If God knows the future, why aren't people already in paradise and McGraw presents q&a with Solomon honey, the way that we usually approach this question is by ensuring that the one who's asking recognizes that there is a difference between Allah subhanaw taala has knowledge of the future, and your freewill, your ability to choose, you have the ability right now to stop watching this video, you have that choice, you have the ability maybe to stand or to sit or do anything else, you have choice and you recognize that because you make choices every day, Allah subhanaw taala wants you to be a witness to those choices yourself.

probably not going to complain. But if somebody started off in the hellfire, they're going to say, I don't remember doing all that. So the question then is like, how do you reconcile the idea between Alright, so I have to make choices but Allah knows what my choices are. So what's the point?
