True, a Muslim is encouraged to live their life in a manner stipulated by God but that doesn't deprive us of retaining the choice to chose between right and wrong.

How can we exercise free will, if our destiny is pre determine by Allah, is this not a contradiction?

Allah doesn't determine what we are going to do though He is aware of everything we will do even before we do it. Freewill of man still remains intact.

Because everything isn't pre-determined Allah has given us tests and one of them being Shaytan. Its up to you what you do with your life, but we should try and remain on the right path, Insha'Allah.

 

Allah helps & guides when we ask, Allah rewards when we do the right thing, so Insha'Allah no we're not robots.
