Taqdir: Predetermination
By Mufti Muhammad Taqi Usmani

Q. I am confused about taqdir.  Why make any effort if everything is pre-determined?  

A.That every thing is written in taqdir does not mean that man has lost his choice.  It simply means that Allah Ta'ala knows what a person will do out of his own choice.  That is why we are obligated to do right things with our free will.  Whatever we will do through our freewill is part of taqdir as Allah knows what we will choose to do.
