  • Hadith Of Jibreel (AS) And Belief In Predestination

    Posted by Aayan Zubairi on June 9, 2022 at 6:31 am

    Salam, I had a question regarding the hadith of Jibeel.

    The narrative has been reported in all the major books of hadith, the variant reported in Bukhari is as follows,

    Narrated Abu Huraira:

    One day while the Prophet (ﷺ) was sitting in the company of some people, (The angel) Gabriel came and asked, “What is faith?” Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) replied, ‘Faith is to believe in Allah, His angels, (the) meeting with Him, His Apostles, and to believe in Resurrection.”..”

    -Sahih al-Bukhari (50)

    However Muslim, Nasai, and most other books contain the addition, “you affirm your faith in the Divine Decree about good and evil.”

    As a Muslim I naturally believe in predestination, however why is it that the Quran in verses such as the following predestination isn’t (explicitly) mentioned?

    “[If you do not believe, then it is you alone who will face its consequences.] Our Messenger has professed faith in what has been revealed to him by His Lord, and so have his followers. All these professed faith in God and His angels and His books and His messengers. [They affirm:] “We do not discriminate between any of God’s messengers,” and they have said: “We listened and obeyed. Lord! We seek Your forgiveness, and [know that] to You shall we return” (2:285)

    People usually give the justification that the Quran considers belief in predestination to be part of Tawhid itself, however according to Ghamidi sahab in the following video, insists that regarding Tawhid only rejecting the oneness of God is Shirk and kufr and for he who rejects the existence of God that belief is kufr,

    Ghamidi sahab does not mention belief in predestination as a part of tawhid, therefore regarding belief in predestination would it’s rejection be kufr according to that Farahi school if they consider a part of Tawhid?
