Q: I would like to ask something about Taqdeer. Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wasallam said that nothing can change taqdeer except for dua… But the thing is I keep thinking that nothing can change taqdeer except for dua and even dua is written in taqdeer! So is it true that nothing can change taqdeer and even dua is written taqdeer?
A: What the hadeeth is implying is the strength of dua.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
