"O you who believe! Be careful of your duty to Allah, and be with the truthful." [Noble Quran 9:119]

"If you obeyed most of those on earth they would mislead you far from Allah's way." [Noble Quran 6:116]

We cannot say we aren't responsible for our fate

"Lo! Allah changes not the condition of a folk until they (first) change that which is in their hearts;" 13:11 Surah Ar-Ra'd

"It was never Allah's (part) that he should send a folk astray after He had guided them until He had made clear unto them what they should avoid. Lo! Allah is Aware {Al-'Alim} of all things." 9:115 Surah At-Tawbah



"Lo! Allah changes not the condition of a folk until they (first) change that which is in their hearts;" 13:11 Surah Ar-Ra'd

"It was never Allah's (part) that he should send a folk astray after He had guided them until He had made clear unto them what they should avoid. Lo! Allah is Aware {Al-'Alim} of all things." 9:115 Surah At-Tawbah


There are plenty of Muslims who seek an excuse for their violations by using 'fate' as their scapegoat. They presume (or pretend to do so) that since Allah Almighty ordains everything and nothing can happen without His will, we are responsible for very little that happens in our lives. This isn't true at all.

As we can perceive, both the verses quoted above from the two Surahs, Ar-Ra'd and At-Tawbah, are in perfect co-ordination.

It is on the basis of the changes we make within ourselves, depending on our intent and motives that Allah judges us and thus ordains our fate.

It depends on how much guidance and obedience we are able to grasp and practice from Allah's commandments and the warnings He has made known to us. This includes the manner in which we handle the tests, trials and tribulations of earthly life.

Allah has also made it plain that he does not punish anyone until He has shown them the right path. Whether or not they follow it, or to what extent they follow it, is upto them and upon this decision of their obedience or otherwise depends the outcome of their life in the form of their fate as judged by Allah Almighty.

Therefore it's upto us to decide to what extent we can prove our worth in Allah's sight and subsequently to carve our fate by utilizing our human insight, which keeps increasing by Allah's Will as a reward of our efforts in making ourselves grow. It constitutes one of the most important purposes of our lives.
