Salam aleykum! Been a while, please you all need to read this explosive piece!
In the Name of Allah, the Beneficient, the Merciful
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds. I bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship except Him. I testify that Muhammad, sallaLahu alaihi wasallam is His
Messenger and Apostle. May Allah shower his blessings upon him, his household, the Companions and the Taabi'een and those that follow their path until the day of resurrection
Indeed, the best of speeches is that of Allah. The best of guidance is the one provided by the Prophet, sollaLohu 'alaihi wasallam. The worst acts are the ones innovated in the deen. All innovations are misguidance and all misguidance is Hell-fire. May Allah save us from this.

Femi Fani-Kayode wrote
"When someone says that God is the author of fatal crashes you know that it is
not the same God that we worship as that person. It is the devil that causes accidents and kills people and not God. You can say that a fatal accident is an act of God only if the devil is your god"
Brothers and sisters, I decided to call our attention to this, because I am sure a lot of muslims will get to read this and potentially get misguided. If that is what Femi Fani-Kayode learns from his religion No problem (that's his problem) but muslims should be careful for these statements opposes the aqeedah of a muslim.
Imam Ahmad ibn Hambal(rahimahullah) in his treatise
"Usool As-Sunnah" wrote and I quote
"wa min As-sunnati Al-laazimati aleti man taraka minha khaslatan lam yaqbaluha, wa yu'minubiha, lam yakun min Ahliha"
"And from the sunnah(islam) are issues that are Emphatic(important) that anyone who leaves any part of it, has not accepted sunnah(islam) and he has not believed it and he is not from its people"
And the first of the points the Imam(rahimahullah) raised was
"Al eeman bil'Qadari Khayrihi wa sharihi wa at-tasdiiqi bil haadith feehi, wal eeman biha, La yuqal Lima? Wa Laa kayf? Innama huwa at-tasdiiqi wal eeman biha.
"Belief in devine pre-ordainment of Allah, The good ones and those we percive as evil, and affirming the haadith about it, and believing in it, and not to say:Why? Or How? Verily it is Affirming and believing in it."
And the evidence for this is as Allah informed us of this in the Qur'an:
[Verily, we have created everything in (predetermined) measure.] Qur'an 54/49
[And there is nothing whatsoever but that its reserves are with us, and we do not send it down except in known measure.] Qur'an 15/21
[No calamity strikes in the earth nor in your selves but that was in a book since before We created it (i.e. the event). That is easy for Allah.] Qur'an 57/22
[No calamity strikes except with the permission of Allah.] Qur'an 64/11
[Say: Nothing will befall us except what Allah had decreed for us, He is our protecting Ally, and upon Allah let the believers depend.] Qur'an 9/51
And evidence from the sunnah is from the popular Lenghty which was reported by AbdulLlah ibn Umar from his father Umar Ibn khattab (will try to quote only the needed portion), which is in the popular book by Imam an-Nawawi Arbaeena Nawawiyyah, where Jubril (Alaihi salam)was said to have asked
"Inform me about Eeman (faith)." He (the Messenger of Allah) answered, "It is that you believe in Allah and His angels and His Books and His Messengers and in the Last Day, and in Divide pre-ordainment (qadar), both in its good and in its evil aspects." He said, and he "You have spoken truly
This further emphasizes that the belief in Qadar is from the pillars of eeman, something which if faulty could mean nullification of ones Islam as a whole. I imlplore us all Ikwhan to take out time and learn our religion fundamentally as understood by those who where there when it was revealed understood it and as been passed down over time by its pious adherents(The salaf salih) so as to be protected from the ranting of those who themselves have as their guides nothing, be it from within the fold of Islam or outside it, for with the religion of Allah alone is success.
NB- It is important to know that the ideology FFK has preached above is the ideology of Zoroastrians(The fire worshippers) who believe in two gods Ahura Mazda (Illuminating Wisdom who they believe is the source of all good) and Angra Mainyu (Destructive Spirit the source of all evil).
