One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

salam, my question is
1)if our destiny is in Allah hand how do u explain ur minnats for things which is not in ur naseeb

(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)




Minnat and destiny

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 11 Surah Hud verse 6: There is no moving creature on earth but its sustenance depends on Allah Alone: He knows the time and place of its temporary deposit: all is (pre-determined) in a Clear Record.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 42 Surah Shuraa verse 12: To Him belong the keys of the heavens and the earth: He enlarges and restricts the Sustenance to whom He will: for He knows full well all things.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 29 Surah Ankabut verse 62: Allah enlarges the sustenance (which He gives) to whichever of His servants He pleases; and He (similarly) grants by (strict) measure (as He pleases): for Allah has full knowledge of all things.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 35 Surah Fatir verse 2: What Allah out of His Mercy doth bestow on mankind there is none can withhold: what He doth withhold there is none can grant apart from Him: and He is the Exalted in Power, Full of Wisdom.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 17: If Allah touch thee with affliction none can remove it but He; if He touch thee with happiness He hath power over all things.


In light of the above and various other Verses of the Glorious Quran, without an iota of a doubt, every aspect of everything that happens in the Universe happens only with the Will and Permission of Allah Subhanah, the Lord, Creator and Sustainer of the Worlds.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verse 59: With Him (Allah) are the keys of the unseen, the treasures that none knows but He. He knows whatever there is on the earth and in the seas. Not a leaf does fall but with His knowledge! There is not a grain in the darkness (or depths) of the earth, nor anything fresh or dry (green or withered), but is (inscribed) in a Record Clear.


Your Question: if our destiny is in Allah hand how do u explain ur minnats for things which is not in ur naseeb
My dear and beloved brother, what we know and call as ‘destiny’, ‘fate’, or ‘naseeb’, or ‘qadr’ is nothing but the Perfect Knowledge (of the past, present and future) of The All-Knowing, All-Wise Lord which The Lord Most Supreme Documented in the Master-Book-of-Records known as ‘Al-Loah al-Mahfoodh’ with Him, before anything came into existence.


Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 94 Narrated by Ubadah ibn as-Samit

Allah's Messenger (saws) said: ‘The (absolute) first thing which Allah created was the Pen. He commanded it to write. It (the pen) asked: ‘What should I write?’ He said: ‘Write the ‘Al-Qadr’ (Decree, Fate, Destiny).’ So it wrote what had happened and what was going to happen up to eternity!’


Your Question: how do u explain ur minnats for things which is not in ur naseeb
Allah Subhanah Alone Has Knowledge of what is exactly is documented of the ‘qadr’ (or naseeb, destiny, fate, etc.) in the Records with Him. Had we known what is written in our ‘naseeb’, then one can claim that such and such a thing one wants or wishes is not in his/her ‘naseeb’; but since we and all creation are kept unknown of what is in one’s ‘naseeb’, it is incumbent upon us to humbly beseech and implore our Lord Most Gracious to bestow upon us our wants and wishes. And it is precisely this act of supplication which determines whether one is truly a believer, and truly trusts and has faith in his Lord Most High.


On the other hand, the ones who don’t believe or associate other gods with Allah Subhanah (mushriks) manifest their disbelief by invoking and supplicating others in the unseen, in the hope of fulfilling their wishes and their wants.


Since we are kept unaware of what exactly is in our ‘naseeb’ or destiny, it is only right that we invoke and call upon none except Allah Subhanah Alone, for it is the belief of every true believer that our Lord Most High Alone is the Creator, Provider and Sustainer of everything and everyone in the Universe.


For example one is childless, and precisely because he does not know whether Allah has Decreed a child in his ‘naseeb’ or not, he will in all humility and hope call and invoke the Lord Most Gracious to grant him a child. If Allah Subhanah has Decreed and Determined in the person’s ‘naseeb’ that the person will have a child, He bestows it upon him at the exact time which He has already Pre-Determined in His Book of Records; and if Allah Subhanah has Decreed and Determined in the ‘naseeb’ of that person that he will remain childless, the person, no matter what he does and to whom else he turns to, he will not be able to have children!


If the childless person calls and invokes none save Allah Subhanah Alone, and is patient and content with what His Lord has Decreed for him, he would have manifested his belief in Allah, and he will earn a huge reward for keeping his trust and faith in Allah Alone.


But if the childless person calls and invokes other deities with Allah Subhanah, he has manifested his ignorance, impatience, and disbelief in Allah and put his trust and faith in others beside Allah….thus he will be guilty of the abomination and unforgivable crime and sin of ‘shirk’ or associating other gods or deities with Allah Subhanah.


Because man and none in creation knows what is in one’s ‘naseeb’, it is only right and correct and a manifestation of belief in Allah Subhanah that one keeps his full trust and faith in none save Him to grant him their needs, their wants, and their wishes.


If one in desperation and impatience and ignorance turns to any other besides Allah and invokes and calls upon them to grant their wishes, he has manifested his disbelief in the Powers and Supremacy of The Lord Most High, and would be held guilty for his act of associating other gods with Allah Subhanah on the Day of Judgment.


If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
