Lesson 34 Upload – Taqreeb at-Tadmuriyyah

Some of the matters or points covered:

  • Continuation of Principle/Rule 6) – in particular the correct methodology in negating for Allāh which is based upon the Qur’ān and Sunnah (sound authentic revelation) and distinguished from the methodology and principles of negation of people of Kalām and deviation.
  • Tashbīh (resemblance) is a vague term and not used in the Qur’ān. From some angles we have to accept that there is some resemblance, resemblance in the ma’na (meaning), which is how we get to know Allāh.
  • Can’t use this (negating tashbīh) as a general principle because of its flaws like the two reasons mentioned in the previous lesson (#33).
  • Discussion and commentary on the handout with the table containing four columns to compare the principle used in negation:
    1) Negation upon the Book and the Sunnah.
    2) Negation of Resemblance.
    3) Negation of Jismīyyah (embodiment).
    4) Negation of Hawādith (that Allāh acts through His will).
  • How to respond to the following scenario: someone comes along and speaks with clear misguidance saying the likes of: ‘Allāh becomes ill, Allāh becomes sad, Allāh gives birth’. Two ways mentioned.
  • How reacting to this scenario by saying ‘this can’t be true because it would imply Allāh is a jism (body)’ is incorrect with five reasons provided why.
  • Mention of how those affected by kalām reject Allāh being above the throne and deny Allāh acts according to His will based upon “Shaykh” Aristotle’s ten categories.
