Concerning the Divine Decree and Measure

Sheikh Abd Al-Qaader (RA) (1) had pointed to this matter, as was reported upon him. He clarified that, "Many people when they reached the subject of Al-Qadhaa (the Divine Decree) and Al-Qadar (the Divine Measure) hold back. But not me. A window has been opened in it for me. I fought the measures of the Truth by the Truth for the Truth. The (real) man is he who is in strife with Al-Qadar (the Measure), not he who conforms with Al-Qadar (the Measure)."


1) He is Sheikh Abd Al-Qaader bin Musa Al-Jeelaani, the pious and absternious scholar. He died in the year 561 A.H. and to him At-Tareeqah Al-Qaaderiyah is attributed but he is ar free from all the Bida' (innovations in Ad-Deen) and the heresies of this Tareeqah.
