It's been a pleasure discussing with you too brother, as always Smiley

I will need to do further research on the Verse/s on 'whatever good is from Allah and misfortune is from ourselves'.

Just to clarify this last bit, these words in bold are from the Quraan, brother.  I'll certainly, InshAllah, quote them as soon as I find them as I do read the Quraan everyday.  What you've mentioned about everything coming from Allah is also from the Quraan.  Thus, whether "all is from Allah" or "all good is from Allah and misfortunes from ourselves," eventually means the same in terms of reward or consequences.  The only bit you are missing out is you're overlooking a vital capacity that Allah has stated He has provided to the human mind to exercise their discretion.

If Allah rigidly pre-destined some people for hellfire without providing them with the ability & option for sharpening their wisdom and discerning between right and wrong .. does that sound compatible with the established Truth in Allah's own words that He is the most Just and He is NOT a tyrant to His slaves?   No, it clearly does not sound compatible at all.  Allah is NOT unjust and He is NOt a tyrant to his slaves.  Absolutely the opposite.

Anyway, I'll surely remember to put those words from the Quraan. 

Salaams and peace

P.S. Additionally, in the meantime, you might also find it helpful to ponder over the following verses:

 Thinketh he that none beholdeth him ?
 Did We not assign unto him two eyes
 And a tongue and two lips,
 And guide him to the parting of the mountain ways ?
 But he hath not attempted the Ascent -
(Al-Balad, 90:7-11)

 And a soul and Him Who perfected it
 And inspired it (with conscience of) what is wrong for it and (what is)  right for it.
 He is indeed successful who causeth it to grow,
 And he is indeed a failure who stunteth it.
(Ash-Shams, 91:7-10)
