A Muslim believes in Taqdeer or Qadaa and Qadar which relate to the ultimate power of Allah. Qadaa and Qadar means the Timeless Knowledge of Allah and His power to plan and execute His plans. Allah is not indifferent to this world nor is He neutral to it. It implies that everything on this earth originates from the one and only Creator who is also the Sustainer and the Sole Source of guidance.
ALlāh Has Knowledge of everything, even before its creation. ALlāh Has Given human beings the willpower and the ability to do either good or bad.
ALlāh’s Knowledge of who will do good or bad even before he has done it is known as Fate (Taqdeer).

All favors are by the Will of ALlāh Alone and no misfortune can happen without His Will. We should at no time despair over any misfortune befalling us nor should we boast any favors given to us by ALlāh.
Allah is Wise, Just, and Loving, and whatever He does must have a good motive, although we may fail sometimes to understand it fully. We should have strong faith in Allah and accept whatever He does because our knowledge is limited and our thinking is based on individual consideration, whereas His knowledge is limitless and He plans on a universal basis. Man should think, plan and make sound choices, but if things do not happen the way he wants, he should not lose faith and surrender himself to mental strains or shattering worries.
