Islamic Faith six Pillars: Belief in Divine Decree
The final Islamic Faith six Pillars is a belief in the Divine Decree, meaning that everything all minutes of sorrow or joy, pain or pleasure, come from God.
First, God’s foreknowledge is infallible. God isn’t indifferent to its own, own people or this planet. He’s Loving and Wise, but that shouldn’t make us fatalists, throwing our hands up and saying, ‘what is the purpose of making any attempt?’ God’s foreknowledge doesn’t compromise obligation. He fails to hold us accountable, although God holds us accountable for what we could do, what’s within our ability. He judges us and, as he’s given us the limited duty, is. We ought to think, strategy and create the correct decisions, however, we shouldn’t eliminate confidence or get depressed if things don’t turn out how we would like. We try again and ought to pray to God. If in the end, we do not achieve what we wanted, we aren’t liable for the results and should know we’ve tried our best.
God knows what the creatures will do, encompassing everything. He knows all that exists, by His foreknowledge that is eternal, in totality and entirety.
“Truly, nothing is hidden from God, in the earth or in the heavens.” (Quran 3:5)
Whoever rejects God’s perfection is denied by this, because the opposite of knowledge is either ignorance or forgetfulness. It would mean God would have been mistaken in his foreknowledge of future events. Both are.
Second, God has written everything that will occur until the Day of Judgment in the al-Lauh al-Mahfuz. The life spans of all human beings are drafted, and their sustenance’s quantity apportioned. Is according to what is written there. God has told:
“Did you not know that God knows (all) that is in the heavens and the earth? It is (all) in a record. Surely that is easy for God.” (Quran 22:70)
The Third, whatever Allah wants to happen happens, and whatever God doesn’t will do not happen. Nothing occurs in the heavens or on earth.
Fourth, God is the Creator of everything.
“…He has created everything, and has ordained for it a measure.” (Quran 25:2)
In doctrine, every act both in material and spiritual life is predestined, yet it’s incorrect to believe fate’s action is arbitrary blind and relentless. Human liberty is kept intact without denying divine interference in human affairs. It doesn’t discount the principle of the moral freedom and responsibility of man. Freedom is granted, although all is known.
The man isn’t a creature. Each is liable for his acts. Individuals and nations are to blame themselves, not God. The man is bound to obey the law, and he’ll get reward or punishment as he observes or violates that law. If such is a man must have within his power the ability keep or to break the law. God wouldn’t hold us responsible for something unless we were capable of doing it:
“God does not burden any human being with more than he is well able to bear.” (Quran 2:286)
The belief in God of one strengthens. An individual realizes that God controls everything, so he trusts and relies on Him. At the time he relies on God for the outcome though his best tries. For God is the source, his hard work or intelligence doesn’t make him arrogant. In the end, wisdom dictates an individual attains peace of mind in the realization that God is His Actions and the Wise. Things don’t happen without a goal. If he was reached by something, he realizes it could not have escaped him. He realizes it was never supposed to be if something misses him. Inner peace is achieved by A man, inwardly.
