Freewill exist and doesn't exist at the same time

The question, whether freewill exist or not is an old philosophical problem. I haven't read many deep things on it. But I have my very personal view on this.

I think freewill exist and at the same time it doesn't exist.

Freewill exist because, without it the creation of intelligence human race will lose its value. Without freewill the purpose of creation doesn't work.

Freewill doesn't exist to the Lover of God because all Knowing God created and designed it. So somehow freewill iteself has some limitations. But yet, it is designed in such a wonderful way that it gives human race tremendous independence in thoughts, behavior and everything.

The fact that freewill exist and doesn't exist at the same time can be compared with a half full glass . The glass is half full. And the glass is half empty. Both the statement is true at the same time.

In Final Testament it is acknowledged that human race has freewill. It is stated that: "Say, the truth is from your Lord, so let him who please believe, and let him who please disbelieve;…" (-Quran 018.029). Thus God gives choice even to deny or accept the very important Truth.

But at the same time we need to acknowledge that God knows everything even if we have freewill. This is because God created time. So although we are into time dimension, God is not. So for Him future, past and present is nothing but same. That is why, freewill doesn't exist if we look from God's point of view. But for us, we can be happy on earth as that we have freewill.
