CHANCE, LUCK & COINCIDENCE IN ISLAM


Assalamualaikum Warahamathulahi Wabarakatuhu

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem.

Many of us have the habit of saying, “I’m so lucky, I got it”, “Oh that was a coincidence”, “If I have got one more chance”. But, remember, there is nothing like chance, luck or coincidence in Islam. All Muslims believe and have faith in the one and only Creator ALLAH. And only ALLAH has power over all things. Everything that happens around us, is only with the order of ALLAH. Then how can we, believe in chance, luck and coincidence in Islam ?

Whatever has happened and all that is happening and going to happen, is all pre-determined by ALLAH. He has the power to do all things. So, we as his believers must understand that there is no chance, luck or coincidence in Islam. All Muslims must surrender themselves to our Creator ALLAH.

As, ALLAH the All Knowing has said : “ And on the earth are signs for the certain [in faith]. And in yourselves. Then will you not see? And in the heaven is your provision and whatever you are promised. “

(Holy Qura’an Surah Adh-Dhariyat, Verse 20-22)

Hence, being a servant of our ALLAH, we must understand this concept that there is nothing like chance, luck or coincidence in Islam. Henceforth, we must avoid using these words and live our life with full faith in ALLAH, the Almighty. And must try to achieve the Jannah, by walking in the way of Our Most Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Sallalahu Wa’Alaihi Wassalam).

JAZAKALLAH KHAIRUN

  1. What if it’s a small coincidence, like thinking about a friend that you haven’t seen in a while and you end up seeing them a few days later, or thinking about something and it happens the next day or you see it somewhere. I had a dream two days ago and my father in my dream said the word combustible, but i didn’t know what that meant, so i looked it up today and it means “able to catch fire and burn easily”. I kept thinking about it for two days and the word kept popping up in my head, and just today while i was watching television, the word was used in this sentence, “he was combusted”. Do i brush this off or look into it?

    • What Islam says is that everything is happening due our Allah’s wish. So, these small coincidence aren’t coincidence instead they have happened in the will of Allah Subhana’Wathala. The word which you have quoted is a usual happening to everybody. Even I have experienced such incidents where I keep crossing unknown words. Allah makes us cross it for some reason. That’s how we can take it. Jazakallah Khairun.
