Discuss the term 'Qadar'.

The Arabic term Qadar’ can mean the eternal Attribute of Allah – Destining, and it can mean what has been destined by Allah.

 

The destined includes everything that happens in this world, be it good or evil, obedience or sin, and belief or blasphemy. All of this happens in accordance with the Will, Knowledge, Decree, and Creating of Allah. Although evil, sin, and blasphemy happen by the Will of Allah, they do not happen by the order or acceptance of Allah.   

 

Suratul-Qamar, Ayah 49 means, “Allah created everything according to His Destining.” The Prophet said, “Everything is predestined.” Related by Muslim.
