Freewill and Determinism -does Determinism Shear Free will?

This work is designed exclusively for modern readers who are best at exerting to fight-out bias. Let me divulge a quick analogy before you, in that our likes & dislikes and their swapping positions in our consciousness are a good example to allude towards freewill & its realism, but a grandeur argument underpins this work to disqualify freewill in-compatibilism. This book ushers the Quranic narrative on the long standing philosophical subject of freewill & its in-compatibilism with determinism. In this book I have dealt with the subject thoroughly utilizing realism found in the Quran. And have highlighted traditional wrongs that did subtly slip in diluting the understanding of the subject among the adherents of Abrahamic faiths.
I have noticed philosophical subjects of this nature are popular amongst non-religious and often religious people are brought to present their apology. Which they have best done in the last century earning the prestigious title “the apologists”.

If God is Just, why is life unfair?

Question – One of God’s names is The Just. But even though I try my best to be a good person and to be kind to people, I get hurt by others and suffer a lot of hardship in my life. Where is justice in that? Life doesn’t seem very fair to me.

Answer – Is life unfair? Of course it’s unfair. Where is the justice in this world? A man can murder and steal, and still live a luxurious life, full of wealth and fame, and then eventually die without any worldly punishment. On the other hand, a man can live a peaceful life, being nothing but kind, patient, and helpful, and eventually die without any recognition or appreciation. Truly, there is no justice in this world, and the Quran even confirms that. God Almighty says regarding the day of Judgment: “On This Day every soul will be recompensed for what it earned. No injustice today!” Quran 40:17

In other words, in the hereafter, there is no injustice, which implies that perhaps prior to that, in this life, there is injustice. But does that mean that God himself is unjust? No. Read more to know.

How is it a person’s fault if he or she was born non-Muslim?

Question- It seems unfair that people who were born non-Muslim will go to Hell fire on the day of judgement, while I will go to paradise just for being born Muslim, they didn’t get the same chance that I got.

Answer- First of all, regarding yourself as a Muslim: who says that just because you are a Muslim you’ll automatically enter paradise? It is true that most religions teach people that if they merely believe, they will enter paradise, and by that, they will attain salvation in the hereafter. Islam, on the other hand, considers faith to be essential, but not sufficient by itself. So, one can be a Muslim; believing that there is no God but Allah and that Muhammad is his messenger, and still enter Hell-fire. That is because salvation, in Islam, is like a bird that flies with two wings: one is faith and the other is good deeds. The expression: “Those who believe and do righteous deeds” is mentioned multiple times in the Quran. The two are always associated with each other. So, regarding those who have not received the message, and do not know about Islam, or those who have only heard a distorted version of Islam, you should not worry about them. Allah is just.
