Concept of human -destiny is one of the hot-debated issues among the Islamic theologians and Yoruba Traditionalists. Apparently, both of them approach the various issues related to destiny in different ways•.Islamic theologians approach this issue through logical arguments from the premises of reasoning and revelations from the Qur'an and prophetic traditions popularly referred to as Kitab Wa Sunnah, while the Yoruba traditionalists approach it through the dialectical arguments from the premises of speculative reasoning, proverbs, myth, folk tales and other traditional materials from the Yoruba environments. this paper tries to examine this concept of human destiny in Islamic theology and Yoruba traditional religious theology.The main purpose of the paper is to expose the theological position of both religions on the hot-debated issues of human destiny and its social impact on the adherents of both religions in the human society.
