Decree and destiny is a lucid exposition of the extensive body of Islamic thought on the issue of free will and determinism. Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri presents the deepest aspects of the debate through the actual words of the Qu’ran, the prophet Muhammed and the Shi’ite Imans. Many of the sayings quoted have not been examined before in this context. This work offers to the reader the remarkable richness of Islamic thought on this issue, and points out popular misconceptions, such as the belief that Islam is a fatalistic religion. Ultimately, “Decree and Destiny” will serve as a much-needed bridge between Islamic culture and philosophy and the West.
