What a fascinating and challenging debate. Thx to our dear friend @f.doosti
In my opinion, this is a very important issue where there is a lot to be discussed about. So I wish if I can do my best to clarify my opinion briefly.
In summary, I strongly believe in fate and luck. But not that kind of fate or luck, most people think.
In order to figure out the exact meaning of these two words, we have to find out the concepts that are hiding behind them.
In my opinion, there are two definitions of these words, one is wrong and the other is correct.
Unfortunately, it is the wrong definition that has become more common among people and when people are talking about luck or fate, that is the one that comes to mind.
It’s an event that occurs without any kind of reason. An event that is completely beyond and out of our control, will and authority. It is far from any reasonable or rational criteria. It gives blessing and happiness to some people and gives the others poverty and misery.
An event that apparently occurs without any cause, but in the circle of divine will. It is done due to cause and effect, though not apparently understood by us humans.
Here is some explanations for secret of being correctness of one and incorrectness of the other:
The system of existence and creation is the cause and effect system. It means that nothing will happen without any rational reason, whether hidden or obvious.
The human being comes to seek out the causes of the incidents, if he finds a cause, accepts and calms down; but if he does not, he will attribute to luck and fortune.
While the people who believes in god, see the universe in the hands of his Creation, which is the reason of all causes. Therefore, in their daily talks they constantly say “en-Sha-allah” for what they want to do.
