Q. Please explain Qadr. I am unable to understand it. The Ahaadith appear to be conflicting. It is mentioned in the Hadith that nothing besides Dua can change Qadr.
A. Qadr or Taqdeer is a subject which cannever be adequately and convincingly explained. The more one probes it, the more intricate and confusing it becomes. At the point of confusion shaitaan steps in to jar one’s Imaan. Hence, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) forbade the Sahaabah from delving into this topic. He went red in the face with rage once when he saw some Sahaabah disputing on this issue. The mind is created and finite. Comprehending the limitless Uncreated, Eternal Attributes of Allah Azza Wa Jal is in entirety beyond the scope of the extremely limited understanding of the human created mind. So don’t allow leeway for shaitaan to interfere with your Imaan. Recite Istighfaar and divert the focus from this topic
