Who's in Charge? Understanding Free Will & Predestination
Date: Friday 17 October 2014
Time: 8 pm to 10 pm
Fee: $15 per person
Venue: Singapore Post Auditorium
Speaker: Shaykh Ahmad Saad Al-Azhari

According to Webster's Dictionary, predestination is, "The act of decreeing or foreordaining events; the decree of God by which He hath, from eternity, unchangeably appointed or determined whatever comes to pass. It is used particularly in theology to denote the preordination of men to everlasting happiness or misery."

Free will means that a person has the ability to make choices according to his or her own desire. If God has the ultimate predestination, does this mean that since God predestines that people cannot make choices? Shaykh Ahmad Saad Al-Azhari will answer such questions and other queries to explain that God's predestination does not mean that people cannot make free will choices. God predestines in and through their choices because God is All-Knowing and All Powerful.
