Thanks for admitting ithe didn't but similar to what he is looking at
How hard is it to understand
Let's say for whatever reason, I get the opportunity to go visit Allah at his throne at the age of 24. There he claims that he has decreed that I will die at the age of 26 in New York City. Now when I get to that age, I have the knowledge that this will happen. To avoid it, I say, there's no way I'm even thinking about stepping foot near New York City when I'm 26.
But that's where the contradiction arises. If I can make that choice and avoid my death, then Allah is not all powerful. However, if no matter what I do, I will end up having to go to New York City and die there at 26, I have no free will.
Muslims will probably argue, he can change this if you repent and become a good Muslim. This doesn't defeat the argument though because then I can argue, what if I want to die at the age of 26 in New York City. If Allah changes this, do I have the free will to be like "No, I wanna go out like this at the age of 26". Also, what kind of divine plan is this if everybody can just pray and change it all the time???
Anyway, just a thought I had. Thanks for reading.- Some EXmuslim
