The Teaching of Hazrat Inayat Khan

The law of nature works in the life of an individual and in the life of the multitude more or less in the same way. When one sees this law and finds out its secret, one admits the truth of both the opposite doctrines, fate and free will. There is such a thing as fate and there is such a thing as free will; sometimes they clash and sometimes they work harmoniously, and sometimes one overpowers the other. Every nation has its destiny, every race has its life designed; also every individual and every Message that has ever come to humanity. The prophets have brought the Divine Message from time to time. It took so many years for them to deliver it to the world, and so many years for it to spread after those who brought it had passed. So many years it took for the people to practice it and to get benefit out of it.
