The Qur'an nowhere mentions 'Taqdeer' or predetermined destiny of humans. We choose and make our own destiny.

ARTICLES OF FAITH, FIVE OR SIX?

Verse 2:177 of the Qur’an names Five Articles of Faith:

1. Conviction in Allah
2. The Last Day
3. The Angels (Forces of Nature)
4. The Book (Al-Qur’an)
5. The Prophets.

But our Mullah adds the belief in Fate, Taqdeer, Muqaddar or Qismat (Predestiny) as an integral part of Faith making Islam an absolutely fatalistic "religion". The Qur’an nowhere mentions Taqdeer in relation to human beings. It always pertains to Allah's Due Measure (Qadar), Scale, Law or Design. Humans have been given free will and they are expected to choose and make their own destiny.
