Everything Happens by the Will of God

People's plans can only become reality if God wills it. Believers are fully aware of this fact, and so their behavior and conversation reflect this reality. God reminds believers not to speak in absolute terms about anything, but to state that they intend to do something only if God wills it. For example:

Never say about anything: "I am doing that tomorrow," without adding "If God wills." (Qur'an, 18:23-24) The Bible says something similar:

Now listen, you who say: "Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business, and make money." Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say: "If it is the Lord's will, we will live and do this or that." (James, 4:13-15)
