Week Ten: Qadr of Allah
Anas Bin Malik narrated that the Prophet (ﷺ) said, "Allah puts an angel in charge of the uterus and the angel says, 'O Lord, (it is) semen! O Lord, (it is now ) a clot! O Lord, (it is now) a piece of flesh.' And then, if Allah wishes to complete its creation, the angel asks, 'O Lord, (will it be) a male or a female? A wretched (an evil doer) or a blessed (doer of good)? How much will his provisions be? What will his age be?' So all that is written while the creature is still in the mother's womb."

SubhanAllah. How amazing is it that everything about our lives, from how we look to the kind of person we will be is all written before we are even born! Which of the signs of your Lord will you deny?
If you sit and really think about this hadith and you think about the color of your hair, the color of your eyes. Look at your fingers and your toes. What about your personality and your age? All of these aspects of yourself were pre-written by Allah (SWT) while you were still in your mother's womb. Allahu Akbar.
This is the Qadr of Allah. The concept that Allah knows everything and has already decided everything that will happen in your life.
