What is the wisdom behind the fact that belief in Qada and Qadar (destiny) is included among the fundamentals of faith?

Belief in qada and qadar is actually a fine question showing the limits of belief and relating to the state and conscience of a person. By believing in qadar and that the good and the bad are from Allah, a believer attributes everything, even his soul and deeds to Allah. In that case, the partial free will is in question lest he should evade responsibility. It says, “You are doing it using your wish and will, then you are responsible.” Man may attribute the good deeds that he does based on his partial free will to his soul but qadar will stand before him and say, “Know your place. Do not go too far. It is Allah who does, creates, preordains and wills.”

As it is seen, belief in qadar is included among the fundamentals of faith in order to protect the soul from pride and conceit, and partial free will is  included among the fundamentals of faith in order to prevent man to from evading responsibility and liability.

The opposite of it, that is, man’s sticking to qadar in order to evade responsibility and man’s sticking to partial free will in order to feel proud of the good deeds he does is contrary to the wisdom behind belief in qadar.
