A Summary of Hamawiyyah
  Creed of Hamawiyyah - Chapter 5 : What Some of the Later People Quote to be the Position of the Salaf
Author: Shaikh ul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah
Source: Aqidat ul-Hamawiyyah
Article ID : AQD070005  [11789]  


5.1 SOME OF THE PEOPLE SAY:

"The way of the Salaf regarding Allaah's Attributes is to leave the texts as reported, while believing that the most apparent meaning is not the intended meaning"

- This statement hinges on what is meant by "most apparent" [Dhaahir].

5.1.1 IF WHAT IS MEANT BY THIS IS THE MOST APPARENT MEANING, BEFITTING HIS MAJESTY, WITHOUT MAKING ANY RESEMBLANCES, THEN THIS IS WHAT IS MEANT.

- Hence the above statement is a lie against the Salaf.

5.1.2 IF WHAT IS MEANT BY THIS - AS IS THOUGHT BY SOME - IS TO RESEMBLE ALLAAH TO HIS CREATION, THEN THIS IS NOT WHAT IS MEANT.

- Hence with this meaning, the above statement is correct.
- But this possibility is impossible as resembling the Creator to the creation is prohibited so how can "the most apparent" meaning be something impossible?

5.1.3 HENCE THE MEANING OF 5.1.1 IS THE ONLY VALID ONE AND HENCE THIS STATEMENT IS A LIE AGAINST THE SALAF.
