2. Time of his death
3. Means of his livelihood
4. And whether he will be wretched or blessed (in the Hereafter)

Then the soul is breathed into his body. So, a man may do deeds characteristic of the people of the (Hell) Fire, so much so that there is only the distance of a cubit between him and it, and then what has been written (by the angels) surpasses and so he starts doing deeds characteristic of the people of Paradise and enters, Paradise, so much so that there is only the distance of a cubit between him and it and then what has been written ( by the angel) surpasses and he starts doing deeds of the people of the (Hell) Fire and enters the (Hell) Fire.” [Sahih Al-Bukhãri 4/3333 O.P.549]

And in another narration the Prophet (sallahu alayhi wa salaam) said: “After an embryo is Forty-two days old, Allaah sends an angel to it who shapes it, forming its hearing, sight, skin, flesh and bones. Then he says: “O my Lord! Shall it be male or female? The Lord utters His judgement, and the angel writes it down.” [Sahih Imâm-ul- Muslim]
