A Summary of Hamawiyyah
  Creed of Hamawiyyah - Chapter 14 : Affirmation of Face (al-Wajh) for Allaah
Author: Shaikh ul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah
Source: Aqidat ul-Hamawiyyah
Article ID : AQD070014  [11538]  


14.1 ALLAAH HAS A REAL FACE BEFITTING HIS MAJESTY

14.1.1 QUR'AAN (55):27

14.1.2 HADEETH:

Du'aa in the Prophet's Prayer Described (Eng.) P87- 88 reported by an- Nasaa-ee: "I ask you for the joy of looking at your Face..."

It's an Attribute that pertains to His Self.

14.2 IT'S NOT CORRECT TO DISTORT THE MEANING TO "REWARD"

- i.e. ath-Thawaab - for several reasons.

14.2.1 IT DIFFERS FROM WHAT IS APPARENT FROM THE TEXTS.

- So a proof is needed to use a non-apparent meaning. And no such proof exists.

14.2.2 THE "FACE" IS ATTRIBUTED TO ALLAAH.

So either it is:

(1) An Attribute of His, or
(2) It is not an Attribute but exists by itself - e.g. The House of Allaah.

So "reward" [ath-Thawaab] is a creation which is separate from Allaah.
And the Face is one of His Attributes.

So how can one be explained to mean the other?

14.2.3 THE "FACE" IS DESCRIBED SUCH THAT IT CAN NOT MEAN "REWARD"

- Hadeeth in Saheeh Muslim (Eng.): Vol.1:H343: "The splendour of His Face would burn any of the creation which His Sight extends to"
