Lesson 33 Upload – Taqreeb at-Tadmuriyyah

Some of the matters or points covered:

  • Continuation of Principle/Rule 6) regarding describing Allāh with affirmation and negation, the guiding principles and rules we should follow. Specifically in this lesson a deep dive of the correct methodology in negating for Allāh.
  • Brief reminder regarding the book being studied, what it’s about and importance of the subject matter.
  • Allāh has no rival, likeness, equal – these are general negations.
  • The principle people of the Sunnah follow in negating for Allāh – three categories negated:
    1) Any deficiency, fault or imperfection in and of itself e.g. ignorance, blindness, tiredness, death, etc.
    2) Any deficiency or defects in His attributes e.g. Allāh has hearing, He hears everything at all times and there’s no deficiency in His hearing unlike our hearing. Same with all other attributes.
    3) Any likeness between Allāh and His creation. We don’t say my hearing is like Allāh’s hearing, etc.
  • People of deviance say we negate resemblance for Allāh which is not correct, is ambiguous, vague and as a principle can’t be relied upon. Reasons and lines of argument mentioned why this is so.
  • Reply to the belief and misguidance of the Mu’tazilah who deny the attributes of Allāh upon the claim that if we affirm the attributes they must be eternal things so there must be multiple entities, gods.
