672 halal / haram income? Asalam-o-alikum

I have 2 SETS of small connected questions about HALAL/HARAM income :

1a- A person obtains VISA of a non-Muslim foreign country(UK) by submitting FRAUDULENT and DECEPTIVE documents, in order to go to that foreign country to go live there and taking a job in a company on the basis of that same VISA to earn money in order to have a good life..

i) Obtaining such visa based on DECEPTION for betterment of one’s family is allowed in Islam ?
Ii) Will the income earned considered halal in sharia ?

[NOTE: the family cannot get visa in any other way except by submitting false / FRAUDULENT documents]

2a- Continuing on from question 1a, since the job was obtained using DECEPTIVE VISA and Documents, this person have taken away the job position which could’ve been given to another deserving rightful person. Has the human Right Of that rightful person is violated with respect to ‘Huqooq-ul-Ibad’ ?
[NOTE: the country is already facing huge un-employment issues AND the job in question is of ordinary nature]


This is a 2nd set of questions

1b- I am working in a big retail company who has stores all around the country, who sells CLOTHES, FOOD and FINANCE, the food includes Haram-Meat, Pork and Alcohol and, the Finance includes Loans and Credit Cards. I work in a Men’s clothing section offering assistant to customers in buying clothes. BUT the salary comes from the company (selling goods mentioned above) then will his income earned will be considered halal by sharia ?

[NOTE: the company sells CLOTHES, FOOD and FINANCE under the same building in almost every store]

2b- Continuing on from question 1b, that person, who mainly works in the MEN’S clothing section, SOMETIMES have to work at the TILL (CHECK-OUT COUNTER) to serve customers by packing the Haram- Meat, Pork and Alcohol in bags and taking money.

I) Has that person participated in selling HARAM goods according to sharia?
ii) and will his income earned will be considered halal by sharia, although his main job is assisting customers in buying MEN’S clothing?

673 Free Will Vs. Destiny Salaam,

Could you kindly explain how it is that a Muslim can have free will but at the same time Allah swt has predetermined the outcome (Destiny)of the events in that persons life however small or big. In which case our will was not free as the outcome has already been determined by Allah and all our actions are a matter of destiny. Isn't there a contradiction here? i.e. if everything I do is a matter of destiny then where does the free will come in to play?
