Dying in an accident as negating what is recorded in Al-Lawh Al-Mahfuzh
A Muslim must believe in predestination. Whatever Allah wills happens, and all that He does not will, does not happen. Allah created all things, knew, predestined and willed everything. Man's fate in life has stages:First: Fate is recorded in Al-Lawh-ul-Mahfuzh (the Preserved Tablet).Second: It is recorded in the phase of breathing the soul into the fetus during pregnancy.Third: It is recorded on Laylat-ul-Qadr (the Night of Decree)and it conforms with what is recorded in Al-Lawh-ul-Mahfuzh. The teacher's saying that a person's death in an accident contradicts predestination is wrong. That the person is killed whether intentionally or unintentionally does not mean his death contradicts predestination. It is Allah (Glory be to Him) Who predestined everything, whether murder or death, as Allah (Glorified be He) stated:
No calamity befalls on the earth or in yourselves but it is inscribed in the Book of Decrees (Al-Lauh Al-Mahfûz) before We bring it into existence.
Verily, We have created all things with Qadar (Divine Preordainments of all things before their creation as written in the Book of Decrees Al-Lauh Al-Mahfûz).
Know you not that Allâh knows all that is in the heaven and on the earth? Verily, it is (all) in the Book (Al-Lauh-al-Mahfûz). Verily that is easy for Allâh.
(Part No. 2; Page No. 505) Also in the Two Sahih (authentic) Books of Hadith (i.e. Al-Bukhari and Muslim) it is reported from
Ibn Mas`ud (may Allah be pleased with him) from the Prophet (peace be upon him) that he stated:
A fetus's livelihood, death, deeds, fortune and misfortune are written down while in his mother's womb,
and in Sahih
`Abdullah ibn `Amr ibn Al-`As (may Allah be pleased with them) from the Prophet (peace be upon him) that he said:
Allah had ordained the measures (of quality) of the creation fifty thousand years before He created the heavens and the earth, as His Throne was upon water.
The Ayahs (Qur'anic Verses) and Hadiths about fate are many, and the scholars of Ahl-ul-Sunnah wal-Jama`ah (adherents to the Sunnah and the Muslim mainstream) agreed upon this. Only
Al-Rafidah, may Allah treat them with what they deserve, contradict this.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
