Salam,

I know that bad actions of children before the age of puberty are not recorded and the good ones are but are the actions of them already "planned"? Please I need to know as I am 32 yrs old and still struggle with actions as a child and they are bothering me. Is there then no way that these would have been avoided?

Also, I am suffering with a relapse of my anxiety disorder, is this also part of "Divine Decree" that Allah has planned for this to happen to me?

Thank you
Salam

You're actions as a child aren't recorded in your book of deeds.

Allah is all merciful even our deeds as adults are forgiven us if we seek His forgiveness.

Allahs mercy doesn't end it's our own capacity to abandon seeking forgiveness and giving in to despair is what stops us from attaining closeness to Allah.


A while ago I was listening to the tafseer of surah Yusuf by Dr Yasir Qadhi, he did the tafseer in parts so I listened to a part a day. It's such a beautiful surah Yususf (AS)'s hope in Allahs mercy in the face of such huge trials and sorrows is lesson in hope for us all.

May Allah grant you ease and make the path of righteousness wide and easy for you.

And when My servants question thee concerning Me, then surely I am nigh. I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he crieth unto Me. So let them hear My call and let them trust in Me, in order that they may be led aright. Surah 2  Verse 186

Also our actions aren't planned we choose how to behave and react, Allah knows what our actions will be but we react and behave as we choose.

Salam,
I htink that illness is a purification, punishment or a trial. Which one of them it actually is IMO (until I learn better) belongs to "ilm ul ghayb" or the unseen, which we do not have the keys of knowledge to. So the situation is ambiguous, and this is part of our trial in life.


In surah Mulk we are told that life and death were created as to be trials for our deeds, and elsewhere that "saqina" or tranquiility was sent upon the believers, so thats something to aspire to!
