Is our destiny pre-determined by GOD? Does GOD choose who is evil and who is good? How come GOD didn't make all of us good if He is the "Most Merciful" and "Most Just"?
Only little knowledge was given to us:
"They ask thee concerning the Spirit (of inspiration). Say: 'The Spirit (cometh) by command of my Lord: of knowledge it is only a little that is communicated to you, (O men!)' (The Noble Quran, Noble Verse 17:85)"
In a capsule or a nutshell, basically whatever you decide to do with your life, and whatever decisions you take and actions you commit, - even though they were by your own free will, - they are still by Allah Almighty's Will AND CONTROL 100%. The way I personally understand it is as follows:
1- Osama Abdallah was born a male, Palestinian, has a university degree, has a certain job, looks a certain way, etc...
2- Osama Abdallah lives on a planet and in a life where his FUTURE POSSIBLE ACTIONS are all laid out clearly before Allah Almighty.
What does FUTURE POSSIBLE ACTIONS mean? It means that Allah Almighty Knows exactly what Osama Abdallah would be doing today and will be doing 20 years from now if Osama became an atheist say 5 years ago. All of the actions and decisions that I would've taken as an atheist, - which I right now obviously do not know what they would've been, - all of them are clearly known to Allah Almighty. So in other words, while it is in Allah Almighty's Hands and Will and Knowledge and Control what each creation WILL DO and WOULD'VE DONE, but Allah Almighty still left it to us to decide which roads to take in our existence, whether here on earth or beyond.
I am very sure it is INFINITELY MORE COMPLEX than this. But I hope this somehow helps explain it for you. Our initial social and financial start in life is determined by Allah Almighty.
