Free will and predestination have been the frequent topic of philosophical debate from the early civilisations right through to the present day. This book describes how human life is based on the FREEDOM OF NO CHOICE. Decree and Destiny is a lucid exposition of the extensive body of Islamic thought on the issue of free will and determinism. Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri presents the deepest aspects of the debate through the actual words of the Qu'ran, the Prophet Muhammad and the Shi'ite Imams. Many of the sayings quoted have not been examined before this context. Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri's work offers to the reader the remarkable richness of Islamic thought on this issue, and points out popular misconceptions, such as the belief that Islam is a fatalistic religion. Ultimately, DECREE AND DESTINY will serve as a much-needed bridge between Islamic culture and philosophy and the West.
