We believe that a true and comprehensive understanding of Islam would not be possible without careful recognition of the Prophetic Tradition and the Prophet's Household. And Allah is the Source of Strength.

Master Of The Day(s)

"There is no question as to of what is Allah, the creator, owner of. His ownership includes every created entity, material and spiritual, matter and energy. Then why has he called himself specifically, master of the day of recompense, out of all the other days, of todays, tomorrows and of yesterdays? 

The fact is, that although Allah is the master of our today as well, he has given us the authority, to create events out of our freewill.

Everyone in this world, creates events, which effect other people, the environment, and other events. These events are created by us, by doing something or by doing nothing at all (thus the saying that the greatest evil is the silence of good men).

What would have happened if Hitler did not invade Poland, if Thomas Edison did not invent the light bulb or if Guy Fawkes had managed to assassinate the king of England? Furthermore, a bit more specific to our spiritual affiliations, what would have happened if Imam Ali (AS) would indeed have been made the first caliph as well? No one can say for sure, as these events crafted world history, and there are too many variables involved to say for sure what the right decision would have been at a certain point in time.

It is a fact, that we can create events, however, it is also a fact that we cannot control the outcome of these events, and to an extent, their impact on other events and variables. I may try to harm someone by the use of blackmagic. This is my power to create an event. This is my freewill. As Quran [2:102] states regarding blackmagic, "and they cannot hurt with it any one except with Allah's permission". This is the power of Allah, to control the outcomes, which makes him the master of all days. This is the true balance between free will and destiny.

Allah will be the master of the day of judgment. The difference? Why is it worth a mention and not a defacto? That day, our power to create events will not obey us and only, one true Master and his will will prevail. No one will be allowed to intercede except by his permission, no soul shall be allowed to speak except with his permission.

You can plot and create events to ruin someone's life, out of enmity and envy. That is your free will. Your plot may fail, and that is destiny in Allah's wisdom. You will be accountable for what you did, your own body a witness against you, on a day none shall speak but by his permission, for he will be the only master. "
