Is ones life partner chosen by oneself or decreed by Allaah

Is one’s life partner chosen by oneself or decreed by Allaah?
What does Islam say about life partner,,,is she/he fixed by Allah or Allah has left it for us to decided?


Praise be to Allaah.

First of all, we should realize that there is no contradiction between our belief that
Allaah has decreed everything, and our belief that He has given us free will which
enables us to do things. Confirming the free will of His slaves, Allaah says
(interpretation of the meaning): "To whomsoever among you wills to walk straight"
[al-Takweer 81:28]

Our will operates within the will of Allaah, not outside of it, as Allaah says
(interpretation of the meaning): "But you cannot will, unless Allaah wills…" [al-Insaan
76:30] Thus it is not permitted to try to cancel one idea out with the other, or to deny
either of them. Allaah has confirmed both, that man has the power to choose, and that
nothing can operate outside of His Will, may He be glorified.

If we apply this to the question asked, we will see that man has freedom of will through
which he can choose whichever woman he wishes to marry, and that whatever choice
he makes has already been decreed by Allaah. The man’s choice is the means by which
he gets what he wants, but some obstacles may come between the person and what he
wants, in which case he will realize that Allaah has not decreed this for him, for some
reason which is known to Him. Everything that Allaah does is good, and His slaves do
not have knowledge of the Unseen or of how things will end. A person may regret
missing out on something when it is good that he did not have it, or he may hate
something that happens to him when it is good that it happened to him, as Allaah tells
us (interpretation of the meaning): "… it may be that you dislike a thing which is good
for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allaah knows but you do not
know." [al-Baqarah 2:216]

May Allaah bless our Prophet Muhammad.


Islam Q&A
Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid

Following note from Muslim Quran online Blog 

The first lesson to be learned by all Muslims is the importance of the Reading Quran Online. All Muslim should learn holy Quran online  is the Book of Allah All mighty. Every word which the quran reciter recites or he read quran is the word of Allah it is mentioned in Quran in Arabic that it is the guidance which has come from Allah. That is why we as Muslim say it is the Holy Book. We should  learn quran and focus on quran teaching thought by the quran tutor to the students and the tutor should arrange the kids quran lessons in such an easy manner so they can understand it easily and make there quran recitation online as beautiful as he could and teach them that the words of Koran were sent by Allah to our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAWW) through the angel Jibraeel. And further more elaborate wile reading quran with teaching them the quran tafseer and the tajweed quran with its rules let then do quran memorization in the proper manner We as Muslim should respect the teachings of Quran and in every other manner when we are reading it or when we listen to Quran  wake up Muslims and spread the word of Islam to
