Bismillah...

The majority of the Muslims are Ashaa'ira
-we shall refute their creed InshaALLAH
-they are a Bid'ah in regards to Aqeeda
-the worst Bid'ah is in regards to Aqeeda and not in regards to Fiqh
-Abu Haneefah said the greatest Fiqh is Tawheed

The founder of this movement: Abul Hasan al-Ashari
-born in 260AH, died 324AH
-he was a descendent of Abu Musa al-Ash'ari, a Sahabi
-he was from the Mu'tazilite school of Thought
-Abu Musa was a Yemeni Sahabi
-he studied from Abu Ali al-Jubbaa'ee
-one of the most famous scholars of the Mu'tazilites
-he questioned his Shaikh about issues which he couldn’t answer
-so he broke away from him and started his own school of thought
-their schools of thoughts were philosophical
-not in regards to Shari'ah
-he started the Ashaa’ira school of thought

Anthropomorphism: to describe ALLAH to with manly qualities
-they claimed they were running away from anthropomorphism
-they claimed that was their claim
-they said it was paganism
-ALLAH said that the most beautiful names belonged to HIM

And (all) the Most Beautiful Names belong to Allah, so call on Him by them, and leave the company of those who belie or deny (or utter impious speech against) His Names. They will be requited for what they used to do. (Al-A'raf 7:180)

-we must believe in these Names and Attributes
-we are to call HIM by these beautiful Names
-and abstain from those belie and deny them
-this ayah is talking about the Mu'tazilites, Ashaa'ira and the Jabriyyah

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah has ninety-nine Names, i.e., one hundred minus one, and whoever 'ahsaha' [enumerates them, believes in them, ponders their meanings, worships Allah by them and supplicates with them, and acts by them according to one's belief in them] will enter Paradise; and Allah is Witr ("Odd", i.e. He is one, and it is an odd number) and loves 'the Witr' (i.e., odd numbers)." (Sahih Bukhari, Volume 3, Book 50, Number 894 and Muslim)

-they have a problem accepting the Names & Attributes of ALLAH
-in regards to the Names of ALLAH, some deny, some discord, and some describe
-we are not allowed to do any of them
-all of the strayed sects have deviated in regards to ALLAH's Names
-except for ASWJ
-almost 70% of the Muslims are Ashaa'ira
-even amongst the Mujahideen we will find Ashaa'ira
-Salahuddin al-Ayyubi, Imam Qurtubi, Bayhaqi,
-and Imam Ghazali were Ashaa'ira
-when you are on the battlefield, it is not Hikma to talk about Aqeeda issues
-the guns will be turned against
-the Muslims themselves instead of the Kuffaar
-Salahuddin was the Khalid ibn Waleed of his time
-never lost a single battle
-sort out your priorities, fight the Kuffaar first and then sort out Aqeeda issues

And (all) the Most Beautiful Names belong to Allah, so call on Him by them, and leave the company of those who belie or deny (or utter impious speech against) His Names(Al-A'raf 7:180)

ASWJ, in regards to Asma was Siffat, we read them, we believe in them, and we leave them

And when you (Muhammad SAW) see those who engage in a false conversation about Our Verses (of the Qur'an) by mocking at them, stay away from them till they turn to another topic. And if Shaitan (Satan) causes you to forget, then after the remembrance sit not you in the company of those people who are the Zalimûn (polytheists and wrong¬doers, etc.). (Al-An'am 6:68)


-we are not allowed to delve deeper in the Names and Attributes of ALLAH
-no Sahabi ever asked Rasulallah about how ALLAH rose over HIS Arsh
-bring us one hadith, if you can’t find a strong hadith, at least get us a weak one
-there is no such hadith

The Sahabah’s attitude towards the Qur'an was:
-they read it, then believed it, and then left it
-it is only after the first 3 generations (Salafus Saleh)
-that all these questions came about
-it’ss compulsory to shun the Madhabs of the Mu’attila
-Mu’attila: they reject ALLAH's Names & Attributes
-they say each one of ALLAH's Names is one god
-this would mean that there are 99 gods besides ALLAH
-and that would make them Mushrikeen to believe in them
-so they will never believe in them
-that is the Aqeeda of the Mu’attila
-but ALLAH revealed these Names for us to understand who HE is

Mujassima:
-they believe ALLAH has a body
-we can’t believe ALLAH has a body
-but we can say Allah’s "person" (Dhaat)

Mushabbiha:
-they believe that ALLAH sees like us
-HE hears like us
-HE speaks like us
-they make ALLAH similar to HIS creation
-they think of ALLAH like HIS creation
-the reverts who were formerly Christians believe in that

Mufawwida:
-Agnostic Muslims
-when we ask them about the meaning of ALLAH's Names,
-they say "ALLAHU ALAM"
-al-Alim means the "Knowledgeable"
-this name is opposite to being ignorant

Ibn Taymiyyah debated the Mufawwida
-he asked them how they concluded the Names of ALLAH were beautiful
-how did they know the Names of ALLAH were beautiful?
-this is how Ibn Taymiyyah checkmated them

Mu'tazila are the Mu’attila
-they are also the Qadiriyyah
-they deny Qadr
-the Shia is the Rafidah
-or the Twelvers
-Saudi Salafis are MADkhalis

Qadiyanis are Ahmedis
-Ashaa'ira are Ahlul Kalam, the people of Philosophy

1stTENET: ALLAH SPEAKS BUT TO HIMSELF
-Allah’s speech is not audible
-man cannot hear it
-how do we refute them?
-ALLAH spoke to some of the Messengers as HE stated in 2:253

Those Messengers! We preferred some to others; to some of them Allah spoke (directly); others He raised to degrees (of honour); and to 'Iesa (Jesus), the son of Maryam (Mary), We gave clear proofs and evidences, and supported him with Rûh-ul-Qudus [Jibrael (Gabriel)]. If Allah had willed, succeeding generations would not have fought against each other, after clear Verses of Allah had come to them, but they differed - some of them believed and others disbelieved. If Allah had willed, they would not have fought against one another, but Allah does what He likes. (Al-Baqarah 2:253)

And Messengers We have mentioned to you before, and Messengers We have not mentioned to you, - and to Mûsa (Moses) Allah spoke directly. (An-Nisa 4:164)


ALLAH spoke to Musa directly
-how can the Ashaa'ira claim ALLAH doesn’t speak t man directly?

Has there come to you the story of Mûsa (Moses)? (An-Nazi'at 79:15)

When his Lord called him in the sacred valley of Tûwa, (An-Nazi'at 79:16)


-ASWJ use that verse to refute the Ashaa’ira

(It will be said to them): Salamun (peace be on you), a Word from the Lord (Allah), Most Merciful. (Ya-Sin 36:58)

Allah’s Speech will also be audible to us in Jannah

-this verse (36:58) is used as Hujjah by scholars to say
-that Arabic will be the language of the Hereafter
-ALLAH spoke to Rasulallah when he went for al-Isra wal Mi’raj
-ALLAH spoke to Rasulallah from behind a veil
-that veil was Light
-Rasulallah said to Aisha, that he could only see light
-they say ALLAH speaks in HIS mind
-and we cannot hear HIM

2nd TENET: ALLAH IS NOT ON HIS ARSH
-the Tablighi Jama'at are the contemporary Ashaa'ira
-the Habashis of Australia and Lebanon are Ashaa'ira
-some of Deobandis do not believe that ALLAH is over HIS Arsh
-this caused a split
-the Barelvis, the Sufis, and the Shias don’t believe ALLAH is on HIS Arsh
-the Mu’tazilites and the Ashaa'ira don’t believe ALLAH is on HIS Arsh
-majority of the Muslims don’t believe ALLAH rose on HIS Arsh
-that ALLAH is on HIS Arsh is known in Islam by necessity
-it is mentioned in the Qur'an
-the state of the Ummah is pathetic
-because we do not believe in the Qur'an properly
-Ashaa'ira quote a verse to backup their claim to say ALLAH is everywhere

And to Allah belong the east and the west, so wherever you turn yourselves or your faces there is the Face of Allah (and He is High above, over His Throne). Surely! Allah is All-Sufficient for His creatures' needs, All-Knowing. (Al-Baqarah 2:115)

They use this ayah as Hujjah

-this ayah also says that ALLAH has a Face
-yet they deny that
-we use the same ayah to checkmate them!
-this ayah is no Hujjah for their claim

WHERE DOES THIS GO?
-they claimed they were running away from anthropomorphism
-they claimed that was their claim
-they don’t know the reason for which this verse was revealed
-this ayah was revealed when the Sahabah
-didn’t know where to turn for Salah,
-they couldn’t find the Qibla?
-it is haraam to limit ALLAH
-when you debate the Ashaa’ira, they mock you
-we must not commit to an answer
-we say "ALLAHU ALAM"
-because we will trap ourselves
-and we will never get out of that trap

It's called Fakh
-they do not want to believe that ALLAH rose over HIS Arsh

Another Hujjah is 13:2
-this ayah says that ALLAH rose over HIS Arsh

Allah is He Who raised the heavens without any pillars that you can see. Then, He Istawa (rose above) the Throne (really in a manner that suits His Majesty). He has subjected the sun and the moon (to continue going round)! Each running (its course) for a term appointed. (Ra'd 13:2)

-whatever is mentioned in the Qur'an is known by necessity
-Shias say the sun, moon, and the stars are controlled by their Imams

SHIA HUJJAH: The spiritual status of the imam is the universal divine vice-gerency that is sometimes mentioned by the imams (peace be upon them). It is a vice-gerency pertaining to the whole of creation, by virtue of which all the atoms in the universe humble themselves before the holder of authority (imams). It is one of the essential beliefs of our Shia school that no one can attain the spiritual status of the imams, not even the cherubim or the prophets. Imam Khomeini, Islam and Revolution: Writings and Declarations of Imam Khomeini, (Berkeley: Mizaan Press, 1981)

-we use this Ayah to refute the Shia and the Ashaa'ira

The Most Beneficent (Allah) Istawa (rose over) the (Mighty) Throne (in a manner that suits His Majesty). (Ta-Ha 20:5)

Another Hujjah to say that ALLAH rose over HIS Throne is 20:5

Do you feel secure that He, Who is over the heaven (Allah), will not cause the earth to sink with you, then behold it shakes (as in an earthquake)? (Al-Mulk 67:16)


-another Hujjah to say that ALLAH rose over HIS Throne is: 67:16
-Ashaa'ira from Tablighi Jama'at do not allow women in their Masjid
-when Shaikh was in S.A., a masjid was open
-Shaikh asked where the women’s section was
-they said there was none
-Shaikh said they were crazy
-some of the reverts women are former Christians
-and they need to be in an Islamic environment
-in Nigeria, there are more women than men in the Masjid
-they let their women in the Masjid because they are Malikis

Zainab used to boast before the wives of the Prophet and used to say, "You were given in marriage by your families, while I was married (to the Prophet) by Allah from over seven Heavens." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 9, Book 93, Hadith 516]

Tablighi don’t allow the women in the Masjid
-because Aisha said in a hadith that if Rasulallah were alive,
-he would never allow their women in the Masjid because of their fitan
-they believe that we must believe in the statements
-that come from Ummahatul Mu'mineen
-but they have double standards
-they use one hadith from Aisha to ban women from the Masjid
-yet they deny that ALLAH is on HIS Arsh
-but Zaynab bint Jaysh said the following:

"You were given in marriage by your families, while I was married (to the Prophet) by Allah from over seven Heavens." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 9, Book 93, Hadith 516]

-this hadith says that ALLAH is on HIS Arsh
-they pick and choose
-when it pleases them, they believe in the Ahadith
-when it doesn’t suit them, they deny it

Abu Haneefah (rh) said, when asked of his opinion of the one who says, ‘I do not know whether Allah is above the heavens or on the earth.’ - “He has disbelieved, because Allah says, “The Most Merciful rose above the Throne,” and His Throne is above His seven heavens.’ He was then asked , ‘what if he said that Allah is above His Throne but he does not know whether the Throne is in the heavens or on the earth?’ He said, ‘He has disbelieved, because He has denied that He is above the heavens, And whosoever denied that He is above the heavens has disbelieved.” (‘Sharh Usul I'tiqaad Ahlus Sunnah’ of al-Laalikaaee (d.414AH), ‘al-Uluww’ of adh- Dhahabee, also ‘Sharh Aqueedah at-Tahaawiyyah’ of ibn Abee al-Izz al-Hanafee)

These Tablighi and Deobandis claim to be Hanafee
-and they claim to follow him
-people laugh at them
-Abu Haneefah said the one who doesn’t believe ALLAH is on HIS Arsh;
-he is a Kaafir
-MADkhalis quote from Ibn Taymiyyah
-ibn Taymiyyah said that whosoever dismantle the Shari'ah is a Kaafir

Ibn Taymiyyah said: And it is known from the religion (of Islam) by necessity and by the consensus of all Muslims that whoever legalizes to follow other than the religion of Islam or a Sharia other than the Sharia of Muhammad (SAW), he is a Kaafir. And his kufr is similar to that of the one who believes in some part of the book (Quran)and reject some of it. Majmua Al-Fataawa: Vol 28, p. 524.

-the Aqeeda and the Fiqh of Ibn Taymiyyah and the MADkhalis are diametrically opposed

Thus, it has become in his sons a followed law to which they have been giving precedence over ruling by the book of Allah and the Sunnah of His messenger (SAW). Whoever does this is a Kaafir who must be FOUGHT*** until he returns to the rule of Allah and His messenger. So no one other than He should rule neither minorly or majorly". Tafseer Ibn Kathir, Vol 2, p.67

-ibn Taymiyyah did Jihad, the MADkhalis call the Mujahideen Khawarij
-ibn Taymiyyah fought FOR the Muslims, MADkhalis spy on the Muslims
-Imam Malik said that ALLAH rose on HIS Arsh,
-but to ask HOW ALLAH rose on it is Bid'ah
-the man who asked Imam Maalik that question, was kicked out from the study circle
-Abu Haneefah made takfir on anybody who didn’t believe ALLAH rose on HIS Arsh
-Tablighi should stop calling themselves Hanafis

3rd TENET: THEY ACCUSE ASWJ OF ANTHROPOMORPHISM
-anthropomorphism: to give ALLAH manly qualities
-such as body parts
-to give ALLAH all the attributes of man
-anthropomorphism is Shirk
-you’re a pagan if you believe in that word
-if you think of ALLAH as being similar to man
-you are a pagan in your heart and mind
-Surah Ikhlaas says there is none like ALLAH

"And there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him." (Al-Ikhlas 112:4)

4th TENET: THEY DENY ALL OF ALLAH'S 99 NAMES AND ATTRIBUTES EXCEPT 7

1) al-Hayy (the Ever-Living)
2) al-Qudra (the able, the Powerful)
3) al-Iradaa (Self-Willed)
4) al=Alam (the Knowledgeable)
5) al-Sami' (all-Hearing)
6) al-Baasir (the all-Seeing)
7) al-Mutakalleem (the ONE who speaks)

One of the reasons why Abul Hasan left the Mu’tazilites

-was because they said ALLAH could not speak
-ALLAH spoke to Musa directly

'Abdur-Rahmaan Ibn Muhammad Ibn Habeeb Ibn Abee Habeeb on the authority of his father, on the authority of his grandfather [who] said: I witnessed Khaalid Ibn 'Abdullah Al-Qasree - and he addressed them at Waasit - "Oh People, make sacrifice, may Allah accept it from you. Verily I am sacrificing Al-Ja'd Ibn Dirham, for indeed he claims that Allah did not take Ibrahim as a khaleel (close friend), and [that] He did not speak to Moosa. Most Perfect is He and exalted is He from what Al-Ja'd says." Then he descended and slaughtered him. I say: And the Jahmiyya and Mu’tazila speak with this, and they distort the text of the revelation regarding that, and they claim that the Lord is purified of that [i.e. having spoken to Moses and taken Ibrahim as a khalil] Mukhtasar al-Uluww" of adh-Dhahabi, (p.133).

Hujjah is 4:164

And Messengers We have mentioned to you before, and Messengers We have not mentioned to you, - and to Mûsa (Moses) Allah spoke directly. (An-Nisa 4:164)

-he was also killed because he said ALLAH didn’t take Ibrahim (a.s.) as HIS khalil
-people were always killed because they went astray
-in regards to Allah’s Names and Attributes
-Imam Ahmed was jailed and tortured because he refused to say that Qur'an was created
-thus he became the "Imam" of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama'at
-he fought the Mu'tazilites single handedly

The Ashaa'ira affirm 7 Names of ALLAH
-we say to them that we realize that they didn’t mention al-Khaliq
-that would mean that they are creators besides ALLAH

O mankind! A similitude has been coined, so listen to it (carefully): Verily! Those on whom you call besides Allah, cannot create (even) a fly, even though they combine together for the purpose. And if the fly snatched away a thing from them, they would have no power to release it from the fly. So weak are (both) the seeker and the sought. (Al-Hajj 22:73)

-they are insinuating that they are creators besides ALLAH
-how can they leave out the Name al-Khaliq?
-they also didn’t mention al-Adl (the Just)
-by leaving off al-Adl, they are insinuating that HE is not Just
-that HE is an Oppressor

“Oh, my servants! I have made oppression haraam (forbidden) upon myself, and also between you. So do not oppress each other. [Sahih Muslim]

-yet ALLAH said that HE made Oppression haraam upon HIMSELF and amongst us

This is because of that (evil) which your hands have sent before you. And certainly, Allah is never unjust to (His) slaves. (Aali Imran 3:182)

-another Hujjah that ALLAH is not Oppressive to HIS servants is 3:182
-this is how we checkmate the Ashaa'ira

5th TENET: THEY CLAIM THAT ALL OF ALLAH'S NAMES ARE METAPHORICAL
-in Qur'an there are 2 types of statements
1) Metaphorical
2) Literal

-however, the origin of Qur'an is literal
-and we are not allowed to give a metaphorical
-meaning until we have evidence that it is metaphorical
-but they say all of the Qur'an is metaphorical
-until they have hujjah that is it literal
-they criticize us saying we cannot take the Qur'an literally
-we don’t take the Qur'an literally

There are metaphorical verses in the Qur'an
-such as Surah 17:24
-7:24 say to lower unto them the wing of submission and humility through mercy
-but we don’t have wings

And lower unto them the wing of submission and humility through mercy, and say: "My Lord! Bestow on them Your Mercy as they did bring me up when I was small." (Al-Isra 17:24)

This is another metaphorical statement

They have forgotten Allah, so He has forgotten them. Verily, the hypocrites are the Fasiqûn (rebellious, disobedient to Allah). (At-Tawbah 9:67)

-and the scholars of Tafseer will tell you what is means

[Mûsa (Moses)] said: "The knowledge thereof is with my Lord, in a Record. My Lord is neither unaware nor He forgets, " (Ta-Ha 20:52)

-17:24 says to lower unto them the wing of submission and humility through mercy
-Qur'an says ALLAH does not forgets in 20:52
-but ALLAH says in 9:67 that HE forget the Munafiqeen

"And ask (the people of) the town where we have been, and the caravan in which we returned, and indeed we are telling the truth." (Yusuf 12:82)

-but what that means is that HE ignores them as they ignore ALLAH
-ALLAH also said to ask the "town" (but it’s impossible to ask the town)
-what it means is ask the people of the town
-this was another metaphorical statement in the Qur'an
-Ashaa'ira are trying to say that all of the Qur'an is metaphorical
-until proven otherwise
-ASWJ says that all of the Qur'an is literal until proven otherwise

See 38:75 [their metaphorical interpretation of the Qur’an]:

(Allah) said: "O Iblis (Satan)! What prevents you from prostrating yourself to one whom I have created with Both My Hands. Are you too proud (to fall prostrate to Adam) or are you one of the highly exalted?" (Sad 38:75)

-they say that "both Hands" of ALLAH is metaphorical
-and if we believe that ALLAH has body parts, we are Kuffar
-they say "Hands" in this Ayah means "power"

It was authentically reported that ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar said: “Allaah created four things with His Hand; 1. The Throne 2. The Pen 3. Adam and 4. The paradise of ‘Adn. He then said to the rest of the creation ‘Kun’ [Be] and it was.” Adh Dhahabi stated in ‘Al ‘Uluw’: ‘It’s chain is good.’ Al Albaani stated in ‘Mukhtasar al ‘Uluw’ P.105: ‘The chain is authentic according to the conditions of Muslim.’

-they say "Hands" in this Ayah means "power"
-ALLAH created these 4 things with HIS 2 Hands

1. The Throne 2. The Pen 3. Adam and 4. The paradise of ‘Adn.

-we are not allowed to take the Qur'an literally
-they borrowed this belief of "two powers" from the Zoroastrians of Persia
-they are being influenced from the Fire Worshippers of Iran
-Correct Tafseer: ALLAH has two hands but they do not resemble our hands
-when we affirm that ALLAH has two Hands
-there are no hadith saying that the Hands of ALLAH means "powers"
-they are guessing
-ALLAH condemned those who guessed about ALLAH
-we cannot base our Aqeeda on Dhann (Guessing)

whether committed openly or secretly, sins (of all kinds), unrighteous oppression, joining partners (in worship) with Allah for which He has given no authority, and saying things about Allah of which you have no knowledge." (Al-A'raf 7:33)

-they can’t even find a weak Hadith to support their claim
-ALLAH said some Dhann is a sin
-their situation is pitiful, appalling, and pathetic

MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION:
WHY DON’T THEY WANT TO BELIEVE ALLAH HAS 2 HANDS

-they have kufr and shirk in their heart and minds
-when they think about ALLAH in their minds,
-they make ALLAH similar to man
-in their desire to escape anthropomorphism
-they reject ALLAH's Names and Attributes

Anthropomorphism is Kufr and Shirk

There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer. (Ash-Shura 42:11)

ASWJ does not make ALLAH similar to man

-because ALLAH said in Surah 42:11,
-that there is nothing in the heavens above nor the earth below that resembles ALLAH
-because we don’t make ALLAH similar to man in our hearts and minds
-we have no qualms
-because we don’t make ALLAH similar to man, we have no qualms to say that ALLAH
-has no similarities to man and man has no attributes of Allah
-therefore we take the stance of the Sahabah: we read it, we believe in it, and we leave it

(Allah) said: "O Iblis (Satan)! What prevents you from prostrating yourself to one whom I have created with Both My Hands. Are you too proud (to fall prostrate to Adam) or are you one of the highly exalted?" (Sad 38:75)

-any other stance from this stance, you will fall into heresy
-The Sahabah were too busy conquering nations,
-therefore they didn’t have time to delve in these issues
-but after them came people with weak Imaan
-and that is how these fitan started
-the Shaytan will always find work for the wrongdoers

6th TENET: THEY DENY THE ARSH OF ALLAH ‘TALA
-they deny the Arsh of ALLAH
-they say it means "glory"
-they say the arsh is metaphorical
-they say Arsh means glory
-we will flush their Aqeeda down the drain

And the angels will be on its sides, and eight angels will, that Day, bear the Throne of your Lord above them. (Al-Haqqah 69:17)

Surah 69:17 says that eight angels will, that Day, bear the Throne of your Lord above them
-also a hadith says the following:

Narrated Abu Said: The Prophet said, 'People will be struck unconscious on the Day of Resurrection and I will be the first to regain consciousness, and behold! There I will see Moses holding one of the pillars of Allah's Throne. I will wonder whether he has become conscious before me of he has been exempted, because of his unconsciousness at the Tur (mountain) which he received (on the earth)." Bukhari Volume 4, Book 55, Number 610

-their claim is ridiculous
-we have Hujjah from Qur'an and Sunnah
-we can flush their Aqeeda down the drain easily
-al-Qur'an is both metaphorical and literal
-majority is literal

7th TENET: ALL OF ALLAH’S NAMES AND ATTRIBUTES ARE MUTAHSHABIHAAT (ALLEGORICAL / UNCLEAR)

-but Allah says BE and it is
-this is a big lie because when ALLAH calls HIMSELF as al-Khaaliq
-that means HE is the One who creates
-and the One who makes
-ASWJ stance on ALLAH's Names and Attributes is:
-they are clear in regards to their meanings
-but they are unclear in regards to their realities
-because no one can fully comprehend
-ALLAH's Names and Attributes with his human mind

Allah! La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), the Ever Living,(Al-Baqarah 2:255)

ALLAH also said in 2:255 that HE is al-Hayy (the All-Living / Ever-Living)

He brings out the living from the dead, and brings out the dead from the living. And He revives the earth after its death. And thus shall you be brought out (resurrected). (Ar-Rum 30:19)


ALLAH described Himself as al-Hayy and the human beings as "al-hayy"

ALLAH being al-Hayy means that HE is the Ever-Living
-HIS life has no sorrow or pain
-HIS life doesn’t have an ending or a beginning

Truly, Allah is Ever All¬ Hearer, All¬ Seer. (An-Nisa 4:58)

Verily, We have created man from Nutfah drops of mixed semen (discharge of man and woman), in order to try him, so We made him hearer, seer. (Al-Insan 76:2)


-but our lives are completely different, full of pain and sorrows,
-and we live and die, with beginnings and endings
-we were created from a drop of sperm
-ALLAH said we were ''sami'" and "baasir"
-HE is also ''al-Sami'" and "al-Baasir"
-HIS Sight and Hearing are infinite

8th TENET: THEY HAVE SHIRK ON THEIR MINDS AND THEIR HEARTS
-in their minds they make ALLAH similar to man
-therefore, they cannot believe in ALLAH's Names and Attributes
-as they appear in the Qur'an
-so they are obliged to put a spin [ta’weel] on Allah’s names
-and attributes in their endeavor
-to escape the shirk which they have on their minds

Example:
-in their minds, they make ALLAH's two Hands similar to the two hands of man
-so consequently, they deny Allah's hands
-and claim 2 hands means 2 powers

ANOTHER MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION:
-why is ALLAH everywhere?
-what do they hope to accomplish?
-the answer is:
-they use the creed that ALLAH is everywhere to support
-their dodgy concept of Wahdatul Wujud
-Wahdatul Wujud: The union of ALLAH and His creation
-the purpose of Sufism is to accomplish union with ALLAH
-they need to believe that ALLAH is everywhere
-from Wahdatul Wujud to take place
-so this creed that ALLAH is everywhere is to facilitate
-their Aqeeda to become a reality
-they will never accept that ALLAH is over the Arsh
-they will forever believe that ALLAH is everywhere to
-facilitate their Aqeeda of Wahdatul Wujud
-they have the audacity to quote Surah 50:16 to promote
-their Aqeeda of Wahdatul Wujud

And indeed We have created man, and We know what his ownself whispers to him. And We are nearer to him than his jugular vein (by Our Knowledge). (Qaf 50:16)

-they have the audacity to quote Surah 50:16
-to promote their Aqeeda of Wahdatul Wujud
-they are Munafiqeen and a waste of space
-because they took this ayah (50:16) literally
-they preach one thing and practise another thing
-if you believe the Qur'an is metaphorical,
-why did you take 50:16 literally?

And indeed We have created man, and We know what his ownself whispers to him. And We are nearer to him than his jugular vein (by Our Knowledge). (Qaf 50:16)

9TH TENET: SOME FAMOUS ATTRIBUTES THEY REJECT

-1) ALLAH becomes angry
-ALLAH said in 4:93

And whoever kills a believer intentionally, his recompense is Hell to abide therein, and the Wrath and the Curse of Allah are upon him, and a great punishment is prepared for him. (An-Nisa 4:93)

-ALLAH curses you and is angry with you
-if you kill a Muslim, all his sins come to you
-you go to Jahanaam and he goes to Jannah
-this ayah is talking about intentional murder, not accidentally
-ALLAH becomes angry but not like us

HIS anger is not like our anger

There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer. (Ash-Shura 42:11)

-because there is nothing like unto HIM (42:11)
-they do not believe that ALLAH laughs
-they call us pagans to believe in ALLAH's laughter

"Allah laughs about two men who kill each other but both enter paradise." (Agreed upon it by al-Bukhari and Muslim)

-they call us pagans to believe in ALLAH's laughter
-they say we are making ALLAH similar to man
-but we say His laughter is not similar to our laughter
-the Shahr for the hadith is:
-the man who killed made Tawbah and the man who was killed
-protecting his property becomes a shaheed
-they both go to Jannah
-and that is why ALLAH laughs
-they reject Allah’s two Hands

(Allah) said: "O Iblis (Satan)! What prevents you from prostrating yourself to one whom I have created with Both My Hands. Are you too proud (Sad 38:75)

(Remember) the Day when the Shin shall be laid bare (i.e. the Day of Resurrection) and they shall be called to prostrate (to Allah), but they (hypocrites) shall not be able to do so, (Al-Qalam 68:42)

Narrated By Abu Said: I heard the Prophet saying, "Allah will bring forth the severest Hour, and then all the Believers, men and women, will prostrate themselves before Him, but there will remain those who used to prostrate in the world for showing off and for gaining good reputation. Such people will try to prostrate (on the Day of Judgment) but their back swill be as stiff as if it is one bone (a single vertebra)." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 6, Book 60, Hadith #441]


-these people cannot bow down because they used to show off in Dunya
-they did their deeds to gain good reputations

“Do you wonder about the jealousy of Sa'd!! by Allah I am more jealous than him, and Allah is more jealous than me, and for the sake of His jealousy, He has indeed forbidden Al-Fawâhish (great evil sins, every kind of unlawful sexual intercourse) whether committed openly or secretly…” [Bukhari and Muslim]

-they reject the hadith that says that ALLAH is Jealous
-none is more jealous than ALLAH
-this hadith is in Bukhari and Muslim
-ALLAH is Jealous but not like man

And as he was constructing the ship, whenever the chiefs of his people passed by him, they made a mockery of him. He said: "If you mock at us, so do we mock at you likewise for your mocking. (Hud 11:38)

-they also reject Surah 11:38
-they want to believe ALLAH is Blind
-this is a literal ayah but they say this ayah is metaphorical
-ALLAH has Eyes
-but His Eyes are not like ours
-because ALLAH is the all-Seeing

The Authority Of Abu Hurayrah: The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said : "Our Lord (glorified and exalted be He) descends each night to the earth's sky when there remains the final third of the night, and He says: Who is saying a prayer to Me that I may answer it? Who is asking something of Me that I may give it him? Who is asking forgiveness of Me that I may forgive him?" Reporters. It was related by al-Bukhari (also by Muslim, Malik, at-Tirmidhi and Abu Dawud)

-they refuse to believe that ALLAH descends on the last third of the night
-this hadith is famous
-they can’t believe in that hadith because they don’t believe ALLAH is on His Arsh
-so how will they believe ALLAH descends every night in the lowest heaven
-they say an angel descends on ALLAH's behalf
-but only ALLAH can forgive sins
-no angel can forgive sins, but only ALLAH can
-they claim they are running from Shirk but they ran back to it
-their case is pitiful, appalling, and pathetic
-we are not allowed to deny, distort, or describe the Names and Attributes of ALLAH
-we believe in them as they come in the Qur'an

~~ALLAH DOES EVERYTHING IN A WAY THAT BEFITS HIS DIGNITY AND MAJESTY~~
