It is generally accepted that everything happens on the will of Allah,
but we're not on theological dispute. What matters here is that you
violate established procedures on disputed issues in case where it is
more or less clear way how to resolve them. I find it bad attitude of yours
that you:
1. "Fix" disputed issues before the dispute is resolved thus
forcing others to follow "look, it's already there" approach.
2. "Fix" them contrary to what would be consensus.
3. Use arguments ex cathedra to support your actions without critically
considering them.
4. Habitualy manage things this way.
