Q: What do we mean by the servant’s actions are created?

A: What is intended is our acts of obedience and disobedience, all are Allah’s creation. The good of it and the bad, as Allah is the Creator of everything. Thus all the servants’ actions are created, its good and its bad, its obedience and disobedience all are Allah’s creation. The servant is the doer by way of desire and will that is subsequent to the will of Allah. The desire, will, and intellect which Allah bestows upon him is the object of responsibility (questioned about) and burden, by way of it one receives reward or punishment.
