What is destiny or muqaddar?
How is the word destiny distinct from other similar nouns?
Some common synonyms of destiny are doom, fate, lot, and portion. While all these words mean "a predetermined state or end," destiny implies something foreordained and often suggests a great or noble course or end.
I understand destiny as a natural path, method, unique way which suggested by our own embedded script (Al-Kitab). Very vast majority among us don't recognise or understand their own unique inner script so reading, following or valuing it is out of question. The efforts towards this unique script is path to success.
The inner Al-Kitab or The Script is our real destiny or destination (our nuzul & manzil i.e our own Al-Quran) but we don't value it so we don't reach our destination and then blame fate or predestination.
A child of destiny is one who recognises his own script from a very early age, follow it to the core and achieves success; a position of praise (maqam e mahmood).
Qadar means value, if we value our script we can make our muqaddar. The script show or suggest the path of our true destination or destiny but unfortunately we value the advice of every books, teachers, society, parents, friends, relatives except our own embedded script, which is our true guide and companion.
