Pearl of Wisdom
Anything that you can blame a servant [of Allah] for is his own doing, and whatever you cannot blame him for is Predestination Allah's doing. Allah, the Exalted, will ask the servant, 'Why did you disobey [Me]? Why did you commit sins? Why did you drink wine? Why did you commit adultery?' All of this is the servant's doing. But he will not ask him, 'Why were you sick? Why were you short? Why were you white? Why were you black?' because all of this is Allah's doing.'
Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq [as]
