Sifat Iradah (RT 25/11/07)

Risalah Tauhid 25 Nov 2007

8. Al-Iradah
Means God wills. He makes other things and leave other things be, as He wishes. So Muslims have conviction that everything has happened and will happen because God wishes so. Yet all men have been allotted their share in rizq (worldly bounty) - if they put some effort into pursuing it.

In Al-Quran Surah Qasas ayat 77, we understand from God:

...forget not your portion of the world...

With "Al-Iradah" in mind, men still have to perform the good and stay away from the bad. Only then leave things to Allah's will while looking forward to good reward in this world and the Hereafter.

Said Ustaz Zakaria: Allah "wills". This is altogether different meaning from Allah "in need of", because He's never in need of anything.

Wallahu a'lam
