[PDF] Freewill, Qadar, and Kasb in the Epistle of Hasan al‐Basri to Abd al‐Malik


Hasan al-Basri said:

Allah has said, “I did not create jinn and humans except to worship Me. I seek no provision from them, nor do I need them to feed Me.” (Quran 51:56-57) Thus He commanded them to worship Him, for which (purpose) He had created them, and Allah is not one to create them for a purpose and then intervene between them and it (to prevent them from fulfilling it), because “He does not wrong His servants.” (Quran 16:118)
