  2. 2. <ul><li>No calamity befalls save by Allah's leave (permission). And whosoever believes in Allah, He guides his heart. And Allah is Knower of all things.

In Allah, therefore, let believers put their trust. </li></ul><ul><li>(Qur’an: Taghabun: 64: 11-13) </li></ul>MESSAGE OF THE QUR’AN AllRightsReserved©ZhulkefleeHjIsmail2009

  4. 4. <ul><li>“  Allah! There is no God save Him, the Alive, the Eternal. Neither slumber nor sleep overtakes Him. Unto Him belongs whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth. Who is he that intercedes with Him save by His leave? He knows that which is in front of them and that which is behind them, while they encompass nothing of His knowledge save what He will. His throne includes the heavens and the earth, and He is never weary of preserving them. He is the Sublime, the Tremendous.” </li></ul><ul><li>(Qur’an: Baqarah: 2: 255) </li></ul>MESSAGE OF THE QUR’AN AllRightsReserved©ZhulkefleeHjIsmail2009

  11. 11. <ul><li>What is “ ikhtiyar ” إِخْتِيَار ? </li></ul><ul><li>It is derived from the root word “ khayr ” خَيْر meaning “good” and “ akhyar ” أَخْيَار - “better” </li></ul>MAN’S LIMITED KNOWLEDGE AND RESPONSIBILITY AllRightsReserved©ZhulkefleeHjIsmail2009
  12. 12. <ul><li>What is “ ikhtiyar ” إِخْتِيَار ? </li></ul><ul><li>It is derived from the root word “ khayr ” خَيْر meaning “good” and “ akhyar ” أَخْيَار - “better” </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore the freedom given to man to determine for themselves their destiny, is only in choosing to do good.

  27. 27. POINTS TO PONDER: <ul><li>The correct statement is: “Can we change our current condition, to ensure a better future in our destiny?” </li></ul><ul><li>Of course we can, because Allah has allowed us (nay, expects us) to continue to change for the better, to improve. </li></ul><ul><li>Allah will assist the change, but He will not change your condition unless you begin to change it ( ikhtiyar ) in yourself. </li></ul>AllRightsReserved©ZhulkefleeHjIsmail2009
  28. 28. WHY THE TEST FOR MAN? AllRightsReserved©ZhulkefleeHjIsmail2009
  29. 29. <ul><ul><li>“ Do men think that on their [mere] saying, ‘We believe,’ they will be left to themselves, and will not be put to a test? Yea, indeed, we did test those who lived before them; and so too, [shall be tested those Muslims who is now living and] most certainly will He mark out those who prove themselves true, and most certainly will He mark out those who are lying.” </li></ul></ul><ul><li>(Qur’an: al- Ankabut: 29: 2-3) </li></ul>MESSAGE OF THE QUR’AN AllRightsReserved©ZhulkefleeHjIsmail2009
  30. 30. WHY THE TEST FOR MAN? <ul><li>To believe in Allah s.w.t. cannot be by mere claim. It requires proof through tests, because believers would be rewarded with honour and exaltation. </li></ul>AllRightsReserved©ZhulkefleeHjIsmail2009
  31. 31. WHY THE TEST FOR MAN? <ul><li>To believe in Allah s.w.t. cannot be by mere claim. It requires proof through tests, because believers would be rewarded with honour and exaltation. </li></ul><ul><li>To be tested means that man is given the potential to be capable for both success as well as failure. He must not be compelled but must have the free-will and choice. </li></ul>AllRightsReserved©ZhulkefleeHjIsmail2009
  32. 32. WHY THE TEST FOR MAN? <ul><li>Justice dictates that with possibility to be rewarded with honour and exaltation, there is equally the possibility of dishonour and debasement. </li></ul>AllRightsReserved©ZhulkefleeHjIsmail2009
  33. 33. WHY THE TEST FOR MAN? <ul><li>Justice dictates that with possibility to be rewarded with honour and exaltation, there is equally the possibility of dishonour and debasement. </li></ul><ul><li>Man can either choose to believe or to reject; to submit or to rebel; to be grateful or be ungrateful. Such is the nature of test or trial. </li></ul>AllRightsReserved©ZhulkefleeHjIsmail2009
  34. 34. WHY THE TEST FOR MAN? <ul><li>Justice dictates that with possibility to be rewarded with honour and exaltation, there is equally the possibility of dishonour and debasement. </li></ul><ul><li>Man can either choose to believe or to reject; to submit or to rebel; to be grateful or be ungrateful. Such is the nature of test or trial. </li></ul><ul><li>Thus there is the promise of Paradise, as there is the warning of Hell. </li></ul>AllRightsReserved©ZhulkefleeHjIsmail2009

  37. 37. <ul><ul><li>“ Among the believers are men who have [always] been true to what they have vowed before Allah: Of them some have fulfilled their obligations (with their lives), and some of them are still waiting (for its fulfillment) without having changed [their resolve] in the least.” </li></ul></ul><ul><li>(Qur’an: al-Ahzab: 33: 23) </li></ul><ul><li>EVEN WHEN FACING ADVERSITY AND CALAMITY , </li></ul><ul><li>THE TEST IS WHETHER WE HAVE صبّر PATIENCE FOREBEARANCE - REMAIN رضى CONTENTED AND FAITHFUL TO EVERY ALLAH’S DECREE UPON US ON THIS EARTH </li></ul>AllRightsReserved©ZhulkefleeHjIsmail2009
  38. 38. <ul><li>“  And there is not a thing but with Us are the stores thereof. And we send it not down save in appointed measure.” </li></ul><ul><li>(Qur’an: al-Hijr:15: 21) </li></ul>MESSAGE OF THE QUR’AN AllRightsReserved©ZhulkefleeHjIsmail2009
  39. 39. <ul><li>“  And whosoever who is conscious of Allah ( Taqwa ), He (Allah) will appoint a way out for him (from every unhappiness), and will provide for him in a manner beyond all expectations. And whosoever puts his trust in Allah, He (alone) will suffice him. Verily! Allah brings His command to pass. Allah hath set appointed (term and) measure for all things.” </li></ul><ul><li>(Qur’an: Talaq: 65: 2-3) </li></ul>MESSAGE OF THE QUR’AN AllRightsReserved©ZhulkefleeHjIsmail2009

  41. 41. Believe in “Qadha’ wal Qadr” is not a fatalistic concept. <ul><li>We cannot claim to know the knowledge that is with Allah unless He reveals it to us. </li></ul><ul><li>Thus for us in life, with time, things will gradually occur.
