Is life on the duniya a choice

Q:

Salaam Brother, I have deep question about before we came to the duniya where we given a choice by Allah in the test of life for us to reach the 7th heaven or just to stay where we were.I know we don’t know what alif laam meem but do we really know if where given a choice and made the decision to do the test to get  closer to Allah throne, Allah know best but would like to have your inside to this question. Jazakallah!

A:

Wa `alaykum As-Salamu waRahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

I am sorry to say that I am not in a position to answer this question as it belongs to the realm of Ghayb or unseen realities; such matters are beyond speculation or human understanding, so we are best advised to leave it to Allah’s judgment.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “One of the signs of excellence of one’s faith is that he or she leaves alone what does not concern them.”

We should be focusing on how to save ourselves from hell and how to get to paradise. We can rest assured of Allah’s promise that Heaven is a place where we can enjoy such bliss the like of which no mind could ever conceive or imagine, no ears have heard of, and no eyes have ever seen.”

So let us motivate ourselves to shun the frivolous preoccupations and instead focus fare more critical issues.

Almighty Allah Knows best.
