    Imaam Sayf ud al Amidi (d.631 Hijri) wrote, in his famous work on jurisprudence, al-Ihkam fi Usul al-Ahkam:
    “You should know that there is no judge (or arbiter) except Allah, that there is no judgement but His. A necessary entailment of this (proposition) is that human reasoning cannot declare things to be good or bad and that it cannot necessitate gratitude towards the conferrer of bounties. There is indeed, no rule (or judgement) before the revelation of the Shari’ah.” [al-Ihkam fi Usul al-Ahkam, 1:113]

    ibn Kathir says:
    .....and people cried and they cried and they cried and they thought that Baitul Maqdis, would never ever return to the control of Islam and Muslims, and that there will never be an end to this Trial and Tribulations of the people of Islam,
    so the disgrace upon the Believers continued until Allah raised from this Ummah A Hero,
    who planted the love for the Blood of struggling in the path of Allah,
    flow through the Veins and He planted the Spirit of struggle,
    and Valour in the Souls and He destroyed the Pessimism,
    that had unheeded the Hearts,
    so there stood the Man by the name of Salahuddin.
    No.​

    Just came across something which I think can be used as an argument against the compatibility of free will and omnipotence/sovereignity

    (This is a conclusion that I made myself, however it was derived from a syllogism first formulated by Charles Hartshorne so all credit and inspiration goes to him. Im not saying this is an air tight argument and if you can identify some problems with it then let me know)

    P1: If a being exists, then it must have some active tendency
    P2: If a being has some active tendency, then it has some power to resist its creator
    C1: If a being has the power to resist its creator, then the creator does not have absolute power

    Essentially, if God's capabilities are to be viewed as infinite/absolute in magnitude, then we can informally say that they are impressive. For them to be impressive, and assuming they are exerted over all living beings, the beings must possess some degree of autonomy and natural ability.

    There would be nothing impressive about me having control over something if it lacked the innate power and ability to try and prevent itself from being dominated. However if one of gods creations possessed a level of power with which it could try and "fight back" so to speak, then god's power would not be absolute in nature. You can analogize this with the idea of tension on a rope or spring.

    This creates a problem for those who affirm god's sovereignity/omnipotence and the free will of man.

    Not everyone dies because they want to die.

    Most of them die against their will
