    It,s my personal opinion . Humen have some percent of control in their hands to do something but there r some natural phenomenon which r not in their hands But in Allah. So to get that in their favor we pray to Allah. Stating INSHALLAH Emphasis that i will to mine rest if Allah will .

    Hope that helps .

    Insha’Allah means “God willing”. We say it in order to communicate our trust in God as it pertains to the results of our intentions and effort. When we say Insha’allah, what we’re really trying to communicate is that while we fully intend to make the required effort in order to achieve something, the final result rests with God.

    From my personal experience I can relate that this paradigm shift in decoupling our own effort from the result of those efforts keeps us focused on our own effort and is key in achieving much higher levels of productivity as well as personal satisfaction.

    The simple answer is that it is mentioned in Quran (translation) that never say, i will do it tomorrow unless say if Allah’s will. ( i think surah kahf). In this way it becomes order or instructions from Allah. After Quranic instructions there is no place for a question of “why”

      السلام عليكم

      It is true that what Allah commands should always be obeyed, Qamar Bhai. However, the question of why can still be asked for understanding the wisdom of Allah and the reasons behind His commandments. Questioning sincerely is not only fine but, from a Quranic point of view, the way of the angels. Remember that when Allah informed the angels of His decision to make a species which holds sway over the Earth, they posed the same question: Why?

    Here is my opinion on this matter.

    Using InshaAllah gets Allah’s will and blessings involved in the matter. As stated in Quran human sometimes asks for something which is not good for him. Also Allah knows our personality and capabilities. When we say InshaAllah, Allah based on his knowledge directs us in certain direction or leads the outcome in certain direction which is good for us in the long run. There is a story in Quran pointing to this fact.

    If we do not say InshaAllah then things fall as it may without Allah’s intervention and the person has to struggle through it.
