As-Salaam alaikum, Sayyadi Ali Ibn Abi Talib, may Allah be pleased with him, quotes the Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, as having said:-- "There is none whose final abode is not known to Allah from beforehand- whether it is going to be Hell or Heaven." The audience said: "Should we not then hang on to the scroll of destiny and suspend action?". The Prophet Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, stated:-- "No, do your part for what is pre-ordained for one has been made easy for him. If he is fortunate, the path of goodness has been smoothened for him but if he is doomed, evil deeds are equally facile to him." He then recited the ayat/verse:- "But for him who gives (in charity) and fears (Allah), and accepts whatever is good, We surely will smoothen the path of happiness." (Bukhari and Muslim).
