lots of people even Muslim people use this term karma. I think not sure It is a concept if you do something to someone, there will be an effect on you. like what goes around comes around.

as far as I know it is originates from buddhaism.

i am afraid, that people use terms like these very loosely but could be a concept far from islam?

please clarify?

The Sanskrit word karma means "actions" or "deeds." As a religious term, karma refers to intentional (usually moral) actions that affect one's fortunes in this life and the next. Karma (or kamma in Pali) is a concept common to Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism, but interpreted in different ways.

The concept of karma or "law of karma" is the broader principle that all of life is governed by a system of cause and effect, action and reaction, in which one's deeds have corresponding effects on the future. Karma is thus a way of explaining evil and misfortune in the world, even for those who do not appear to deserve it - their misfortune must be due to wrong actions in their previous life.

Islamically we do not believe in such traditions.
