A topic raised in our office where many people agreed including few Muslims that we are the creator of our own destiny, while I am against them.
Can someone throw some lights on this?

Bismillah hir Rahman nir Raheem

!st lets try 2 understand what exactly destiny means , Insha Allah after we have understood this term it will become easier 4 us to answer related queries

Within the knowledge of Allah there is, what was going to happen in the world and whatever servants were going to do, Allah found this out from the beginning and wrote it down.


He wrote goodness in some people's fate and wrote badness in another person's fate.


He did not make the person helpless by writing this down, but wrote down what the servant was going to do.


If he wrote badness in a person's fate then this is because the person was going to perform badness and if he wrote goodness in a person's fate then this is because the person was going to perform goodness.


Allah's knowledge or due to Allah writing this down did not make a person helpless.

Within the Knowledge of Allah Ta'ala, He wrote what was going to happen in the world and whatever His servants were going to do. Allah Ta’ala wrote good in some people's fate and wrote bad in another person's fate. He did not make the person helpless by writing this down, but wrote down what the servant was going to do. An example of this is that if Allah Ta’ala wrote bad for Zaid, then it was because He is aware that Zaid is going to do bad, and if Zaid was to do good, then He would have written good for Zaid, thus His Writing and His Knowledge did not make any person compelled. After performing bad deeds you should not say that this happened because it was Allah Ta'ala's will and therefore it was in my destiny, but all good things are done with the Pleasure of Allah Ta'ala and all bad deeds are done with the pleasure of one's desires.

 To believe yourself as totally without will or totally helpless is a misguided belief. The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) has referred to those who do not believe in Taqdeer to be like fire-worshippers of his Ummah.

 It is forbidden to discuss or debate the subject of destiny. A person should only think that they are not helpless like stones and therefore cannot do anything according to their will, but actually Allah Ta'ala has given humans the power to do as they please and the reward and sin is based upon this power of will. Sayyiduna Abu Bakr Siddique and Sayyiduna Umar (radi Allahu anhuma) were prohibited from discussing Taqdeer.
