Lesson 32 Upload – Taqreeb at-Tadmuriyyah

Some of the matters or points covered:

  • Principle/Rule 6) regarding describing Allāh with affirmation and negation, the guiding principles and rules we should follow.
  • Three categories of things negate for Allāh:
    1) Any deficiency, defect or imperfection in and of itself e.g. blindness, deafness, dumbness, tiredness, becoming weary, etc.
    2) Any deficiency or imperfection in His attributes i.e. in His life, knowledge, power, etc. Rather He is perfect in His life, knowledge, power, etc.
    3) Any likeness between Allāh and His creation. So we don’t say for example the power of the creatures is like the power of Allāh, etc.
  • Evidences from the Qur’ān for where each of these three categories have been derived.
  • Important clarification regarding difference between Tamtheel (likeness) and Tashbeeh (resemblance).
  • Two reasons why can’t just rely on negating resemblance for Allāh.
  • Response to a counter-argument regarding one thing sharing some aspect with another and what is possible or permissible for these things with some terms explained like Jā’iz, Mumtanih, Wājib.
  • The great danger of the principles of the people of Kalām, innovation and misguidance.
