I was reading this (which is a very nice easy site for me) , and this paragraph popped out:
 
* Al-Qadar. Al-Qadar is the understanding that some facets of our lives have been pre-destined by Allah (Subhanahu wa ta'ala). These include the existence of all creatures, the length of a person's life span, and the amount of provision (or wealth) they will receive. Although Allah (Subhanahu wa ta'ala) has the Supreme authority, He has granted man, His Vicegerent (deputy) use of a limited authority in exercising discretion and making choices. Since accountability presupposes authority, Allah (Subhanahu wa ta'ala) equipped man with all the necessary and appropriate faculties to understand and exercise judgement. Allah (Subhanahu wa ta'ala), out of His Mercy, revealed additional guidance through His chosen Prophets (alaihim assalam) to explain the rewards and the consequences of his deeds. It is up to man to make or mar his own future.

 
I was wondering if there are specific references that you could point me to as to pre-destination and free will. Thanks

Muslim Channels . TV 

CAIR-CA: Website is Muslim Alternative to YouTube

MuslimChannels.tv aims to educate non-Muslims about Islam and provide an Internet site for Muslims to view videos without worrying about anti-Islamic tirades or sexually explicit content, said Tarek Ayoub, a volunteer for the site and for the site's nonprofit founder, Islam The Answer Corp.

"It's a way for Muslim users to feel safe," Ayoub said.

The site also includes non-religious programming, such as comedy, travel, sports and cultural videos, along with documentaries containing trenchant political commentary on subjects such as the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories. The volunteer-run site will not accept advertising or donations, to avoid compromising its mission, Ayoub said.

Larry Slusser, secretary of the Southwest Riverside County Interfaith Council and a Mormon, praised the idea behind the site.

"I think it's great anytime someone can dispel misconceptions and promote understanding of and appreciation for a faith," said Slusser, who has not visited the site. "As a Latter-day Saint, I know many people have misperceptions about my faith. There's enough hatred in the world. We need more understanding of our differences."

Hussam Ayloush, executive director of the Southern California office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said MuslimChannels.tv's nonreligious videos show how Muslims are culturally and ethnically diverse and cannot be defined solely by their religion.

Curriculum for New Muslims - From The Blog of Suhaib Webb
 
Q: If someone is starting out learning about Islam, what program of study do you recommend?
 
A: The best way to gain knowledge in the din, is to gradually build up a decent level of competency in the various subjects, before embarking deeply into one subject or another
 
Before beginning:
We suggest first and foremost that you learn the fundamentals of purification, prayer and fasting

Live Session Today on IOL with Dr. Idris Tawfik:
 
Help for New Muslims
 
Q: Should new Muslims change their old names?
 
A: It is not, though, a requirement to change your name. Sometimes, it is good to give witness to the society in which you live by keeping the name you were always known by.

In my own case, I did not change my name when I lived in the UK.
