The Concept of Choice in Sahih al-Bukhari
The aim of this work is to study the concept of choice in the Sahih al-Bukhari. The question of choice is very intimately linked with the problematic of predestination and free will, which is one of the most fundamental discussions in early Islamic theology. It is debatable, however, whether the concept of free will is relevant in Muslim discourse or whether we should rather speak about your power to act and make independent choices in our lives, about the relationship of God's divine power and human power. But, then, we should also not speak about predestination, but the power of God to determine everything that happens in this world and the hereafter, the relationship of God's absolute sovereignty and human responsibility. The Islamic concept of qadar, which is usually translated as predestination or destiny, is central to Islamic discourse. Perhaps it is even more central than the concept of ikhtiyar, choice or free will. But does it mean predestination?
