In Response To: Free Will (Hicham)

Wa Salamun alaikum,

Dear Hicham,

We have the free will to choose our actions but we cannot change the consequences (that must follow Divine laws). We have the choice to put or not to put our finger in fire. But we cannot change the law that fire burns.

[The Divine message has essentially been the same. Herein are mentioned some of those laws, Twelve Maxims of intense beauty]
53:38 i No laden one shall bear the load of another.
53:39 ii Every human being shall be responsible for his works, and compensated for, his labor.
53:40 iii His effort (and not the results) will be seen.
53:41 iv Then he will be fully rewarded for it.
53:42 v To your Lord is the final destination. [79:44. Your goal shall be your Lord’s Rule on earth]
53:43 vi He is the One who causes you to laugh, and to cry. [The basic principles that cause nations to live in prosperity versus misery, are being mentioned here]
53:44 vii He is the One Who gives death and gives life. [The rise and fall of nations follow His laws. And these laws are most excellently expounded in the Qur’an]
53:45 viii He is the One Who creates the two companions, the male and the female (pairs and opposites among His creation),
53:46 From gametes that unite.
53:47 ix He has promised to bring about a second life (the ultimate accountability).
53:48 x He is the One Who gives wealth and contentment. [Only His laws can bestow true prosperity]
53:49 xi He is the One Who is the Lord of the brightest star, the human intellect.
[Shi'ra = Sha'oor = Intellect. Shi'ra is also the Arabic name of the brightest star Sirius in the constellation Canis Major. It was widely worshiped in ancient Middle East]
53:50 xii He is the One Who annihilated the former tribe of ‘Aad. [They were men of intellect but refused to establish the Divine System. 7:65. A wrong system, however smartly run, is bound to collapse]

Some Physical Divine Laws:
Divine laws in the Universe never change. [6:34, 6:116, 10:64, 17:77, 18:27, 33:38, 33:62, 40:85, 48:23. The grand empire of human learning, development, invention, science and technology would have failed to come off ground if God’s physical laws in the Universe were to keep changing. So, water flows down-stream, gravity pulls, fire is hot, ice is cold, things float on water or sink in accordance with their specific gravity, planets revolve in their assigned orbits, living beings face death, elements will have fixed freezing and boiling points, night and day alternate, opposite poles attract, like poles repel, actions have reactions, metals are good conductors of heat and electricity while non-metals are not, magnet will pull iron and leave aside wood, elements will always have a fixed density, all things are made of atoms, heat expands, cold contracts, and so on.]
