  • She Wishes to Be Afflicted Date: 10-9-2019

    Asalamunaleykum, I am 17 years old and i am someone, who lost her iman 7 months ago and repented. I was watching a video on Youtube today and the scholar mentioned that Allah tests and gives difficulties to people he loves and the more he loves someone the more this person will face difficulties. As I did not have to experience losses and bad things.. More

  • Confused about Allah’s Decree and Person’s Will Date: 27-11-2018

    Assalamu Alaikum, I have a question about al qadr. I had trouble understanding it and I read the book by ibn uthaymeen and alhumdulilah it's more clear now. But it's hard for me to understand something, do people choose to believe or disbelieve or is this because of the decree and will of Allah? In the Quran it says that those who believe and do righteous.. More

  • Doubting Matters in Islam Date: 16-5-2018

    I know that doubting is Kufr. But if a person has doubts about Islam during their life, thus they were a disbeliever, but resolved their doubt before they died, and died with certain faith, have they died a believer because they did not repent from Kufr ? .. More

  • Decree of Allah encompasses all of our actions Date: 3-1-2018

    I have a question about Allah's decree. I noticed that most of the time, when I want to participate or do something, it might not always occur. This happens when I think a lot about it. The same occurs when I do not want to participate or do something. Is there a term for this in Islam and any proof as well? Is it proper that one should always think.. More

  • Allah created all things, whether lawful or unlawful Date: 1-1-2018

    Is it appropriate to say that Allah has given us all things, including sinful things? Like someone says this movie ticket is given to me by Allah, is this correct? Similarly we say that Allah is the creator of all things. So will it be appropriate to say that Allah is the creator of man made things which are sinful i.e. movies etc? .. More

  • Our assumptions have no effect on our destiny Date: 11-12-2017

    Assalaamu alaykum. Sir, I wanted to know whether our thinking has any effect upon our destiny. I mean, it is said that if we think positive, then positive things happen, and that negative things happen if we think negative things. I mean, the hadith Qudsi says, "I am as my slave thinks I am..." So if we say that Allah listens to our supplication, He.. More

  • Why Allah threatens punishment while He is in no need of people Date: 30-11-2017

    Assalaamu alaykum. Why has Allaah threatened to punish us if we do not obey His orders? He is not in need of anyone, so why does He punish us if we do not obey Him? I hope that you will give me a direct reply instead of referring me to a link. May Allaah reward you. .. More

  • Statement that life of someone who was killed was cut short is false Date: 18-11-2017

    I was wondering; is it accurate to say regarding a killed or murdered non-Muslim possible fate that if someone is killed unfairly, then their life has been cut short, which interferes with the natural flow of destiny, and henceforth that person had no chance to come to belief later in life because their life was cut short, and then due to the possibility..

  • Man was not given choice to enter Paradise directly before living in this world Date: 24-10-2017

    Assalaamu alaykum. Is it true that Allah, the Exalted, asked each and every person before sending them to the world whether they want to go to the world and earn Paradise through their own deeds or rather they just pass and go to Paradise? Is there any reference of such thing in the Quran or Hadith? .. More

  • Arguing with those skeptical about Allah's power Date: 3-7-2017

    Assalaamu alaykum, Shaykh. I am a 15-year-old who is currently doing Da‘wah (proselytization), and I just want to verify some information that I have given someone. This is with respect to the following questions: Does God have the power to create a stone which He can not carry? Does He have the power to be unjust? Does He have the power to lie, or.. More

  • Debating with non-Muslim about predestination and fate Date: 2-7-2017

    I was talking with a non-Muslim colleague about God. He was saying that God is evil because He allows evil to happen. We then further discussed this topic, and I told him above free will and so on. I said the exact following words: "God knows the outcome, but we create it." I would really like to know if uttering these exact words is haram, and if so,.. More

    Assalaamu alaykum. Is it permissible to use the expression: "Inna Allaaha Qaadirun 'alaa maa yashaa'u," meaning Allaah has power over whatever He wishes or wills. Please support your response with statements from the Quran, authentic Sunnah, or Salafi scholars. May Allaah reward you. .. More

  • This lyric does not mock fate Date: 15-2-2017

    Assalaamu alaykum. I am learning a song which I will sing without music. The song contains certain lyrics regarding which I worry whether they are Islamically allowed or not. Do they in any way diminish belief in Taqdeer? Or can these be sung? Please reassure me. The lines go, "Oh, what a riddle life is! Sometimes it makes us laugh, sometimes it makes.. More

  • Allaah guarantees sustenance of His creation Date: 21-12-2016

    If Allaah has promised for sustained sustenance and prohibited abortion, then why does sustenance (money in particular) keep on diminishing with each child added to the family? Why do resources not increase with each added member of the family? Rather, it keeps on becoming difficult to pay for day-to-day bare minimums (without any greed for luxuries)... More

  • Wisdom behind afflictions to animals Date: 17-4-2016

    Assalaamu alaykum. Could you tell us how to respond to people who ask why Allaah gave diseases to animals while they do not sin nor go to paradise? In the comments, some atheists were challenging that if Allaah is merciful, then why give diseases and pain to animals while they do not sin nor go to paradise. How to respond to them? May Allaah reward.. More
