Transcribed Audio:

It is obligatory to have eemaan (true faith) in pre-ordainment and pre-decree. And that everything which occurs in this creation then it does not occur by chance randomly. Rather, it is something which has been decreed and written in the preserved tablet; Al-Lawh Al-Mahfudh.

And Allaah, the Majestic and Most High, knew it and He wrote it in the preserved tablet then He ordained it. Then He created it and He brought it into existence and willed it.

Nothing is found in this creation without its having been preceded by Allaah’s pre-ordainment and pre-decree. Everything has been pre-ordained and from that is good and evil. The good which occurs to mankind is by the pre-ordainment and pre-decree of Allaah. And the evil which occurs for them then it is by the pre-ordainment of Allaah and His pre-decree. And disbelief & true faith and sickness & health and hunger & being full and wealth & poverty; all of this is by the pre-ordainment and pre-decree of Allaah, the Perfect and Most High.
