Pearl of Wisdom

'He is subtle not in terms of lack or delicateness or smallness, rather [He is subtle] in His [knowledge and power of] penetration into everything without being perceived. He is all-aware through the fact that nothing escapes His attention or evades Him, independent of experience or consideration of things, for experience and consideration in turn result in two types of knowledge, without which He would not know [if he were to be dependent on them], and would therefore be ignorant.'

Imam Ali ibn Musa al-Ridha [as]
al-Kafi, v. 1, p. 122, no. 2

In the Holy Qur'an

And Allah has created you and what you make (37:96)

He said: Our Lord is He Who gave to everything its creation, then guided it (to his goal). (20:50)

In the Traditions

A person asked Imam Ali whether man has the power to exercise free will or not. If he has the power to do things, then how is it possible to say that there is no power to help but from Allah?
The Imam said, "You have ability by the Will of Allah, while He has it independently. If He endows you with it, that is His favour. If He takes it away from you, that means He is testing you. Iny any case, you should remember that whatever He bestows on you, He is still its owner. If He enables you to do a thing, that thing is still within His power."
