Should we try to save a sick person or leave him to his fate?


Should we try to save a sick person or leave him to his fate?
Allah knows all, even events that have not yet occured.
However what is the Islamic view of destiny or predestination. Is a man free to be the master of his fate or is "something written" for example a person may be dying, some will say his death is the wish of Allah and others will try to save the dying man. Is it written or can a man write his fate himself?

Praise be to Allaah.

Everything is written and decreed, as Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“We have neglected nothing in the Book” (al-An’aam 6:38)

“And everything they have done is noted in (their) Records (of deeds).” (al-Qamar 54:52)

And in the Saheeh Hadeeth:

“The first thing which Allaah created was the Pen. He said to it: ‘Write!’ It said, ‘O Lord, what should I write?’ He said: ‘Write what is to happen until the Day of Resurrection.’”

According to another hadeeth:

“Allaah decreed everything for His creation fifty thousand years before He created the heavens and the earth.”

These decrees are hidden from us and we do not know them. It is not permissible for us to rely on this and neglect to strive and take all necessary means. There is no contradiction between the two ideas. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“O slaves of Allaah, seek treatment but do not seek treatment in haraam things, for Allaah has not sent down any disease without also sending down the cure.”

And he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) also said:

“Strive, and that for which each person was created will be made easy for him.”

We do not know what has been decreed until after the fact. Allaah has given us free will and freedom of choice, but we do not move beyond the framework of the will and decree of Allaah. To sum up, there is no contradiction between trying to save a person from death and the idea that Allaah decrees all things, which we do not know until after they happen. And Allaah knows best.

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
