Recently I saw the video where Dr. Zaakir Naik said Allaah asked each one of us if we wanted free will and that he had asked the like of the mountains but they refused and we accepted. He said proof for this is in Surah Al Ahzab ayah 72:
Indeed, we offered the Trust to the heavens and the earth and the mountains, and they declined to bear it and feared it; but man [undertook to] bear it. Indeed, he was unjust and ignorant.
So I decided to look for the tafsir of this Ayah in the Ibn Kathir's collection. From what I read it says Allaah asked Adam if he wanted the Amanah and it also says he asked man. Dr. Zaakir Naik was very specific though, he said Allaah asked us and we have no memory of it. I just want to know where he got his knowledge from?
