Some of the matters or points covered:
- Expanding on the principles regarding affirmation and negation of Allah’s attributes.
- What Allah affirms for Himself are all attributes of perfection with no deficiencies unlike the creation whose attributes contain deficiencies.
- All of the attributes which are negated for Allaah are attributes of deficiencies and imperfection. By negating, the perfect opposite is affirmed.
- In the Qur’an overwhelmingly affirmation is specific but negation is general. Some example ayaat provided. However, there can be exceptions to this (i.e. affirmation in a general sense and negation in a specific sense) when the need arises.
