Fifthly: With respect to the isnaad of the narration which Bayhaqee mentions from al-Haakim from Abu Amr ibn as-Sammaak from Hanbal... then: Al-Haakim reports a hadeeth in his 'Mustadrak' (1/539): "Abu Amr bin as-Sammaak related to us: Muhammad bin Eesaa al-Madaa'inee narrated to us..." Adh-Dhahabee comments upon it in his Talkhees saying: "I say: Abu Amr is not known (laa yu'raf) and al-Madaa'inee is abandoned (matrouk)"! So the narration, as we have mentioned previously, is not established from Imaam Ahmad since Abu Amr ibn as-Sammaak is unknown!

So there is no proof for the Jahmee in this issue and all praise is due to Allaah, who is praised on account of His Most-Perfect Names and Attributes, there is nothing like Him and He is the all-Hearing, all-Seeing.

33 Refer also to Abu Hasan al-Ash'aree's al-Ibaanah an Usool id-Diyaanah.

34 A Disastrous and Cataclysmic Earthquake to Engulf and Swallow the Aforementioned Jahmee, Rendering him Abased, Despised and Rejected:

Muhammad bin al-Hasan ash-Shaybaanee (d. 189H) said: "Hammaad bin Abu Haneefah said: "We said to them: Do you consider the saying of Allaah - the Mighty and Majestic:

And your Lord comes accompanied by the Angels, ranks upon ranks" [Soorah Fajr 89:22]

They said: "As for the Angels then they come, ranks upon ranks. But as for the Lord - the Most High - then we do not know what is meant by that [1] and we do not know the kaifiyyah (how) of His coming." So I said to them: "We do not oblige you to know how He comes but we oblige you to have faith in His coming. Do you not consider that the one who rejects that the Angels come, ranks upon ranks, what is he to you?" They said: A Kaafir (disbeliever) a Mukadhdhib (rejector)." I said: "Then likewise, the one who denies that Allaah - the Most Perfect - comes then he is a Kaafir, a Mukadhdhib." Aqeedatus-Salaf wa Ashaabil-Hadeeth (p.49) of Abu Uthmaan as-Saaboonee.

[1] And in this is a refutation of the People of Innovations and Desires - such as this Jahmee - who claim that the verses (and ahaadeeth) mentioning the Attributes of Allaah are from the mutashaabihaat (unclear verses) whose meanings are unknown. Rather, it is the kaifiyyah (precise nature) which is unknown, but as for the meanings, then the way of the Salaf, in opposition to the way this Jahmee, is to affirm them but to relegate the knowlege of exactly how they are (kaifiyyah), to Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic. And here you may note a further difference between the Salaf and the People of Innovations and Desires. The Salaf relegate the knowledge of exactly how the Attributes are to their Lord, but they affirm the apparent meanings of these Attributes, in a real sense. As for the Innovators, they relegate the knowledge of the meanings of the Attributes to Allaah, claiming that affirming them would necessitate tashbeeh?! And thus, this Jahmee, like his forefathers, Jahm bin Safwaan and al-Qaadee Abdul-Jabbaar, describes Allaah with nothingness! The falsehood of this claim has already been discussed above and more will be said about it in what follows, inshaa'allaah.

Abu Abdullaah bin Abee Hafs al-Bukhaaree also said in his book: "Ibraaheem bin al-Ash'at said: "I heard al-Fudayl bin 'Iyaad (d. 187H) say: "When a Jahmee says to you: 'We do not believe in a Lord that descends to His place (yanzilu alaa makaanihi)' then say: "I believe in a Lord who does whatever He wills." Aqeedatus-Salaf wa Ashaabil-Hadeeth (p.50) of Abu Uthmaan as-Saaboonee and Usool ul-I'tiqaad (no.775) of al-Laalakaa'ee.

Ahmad bin Alee al-Abaar said: "I heard Yahyaa bin Ma'een say: "When you hear a Jahmee saying: 'I disbelieve in a Lord that descends', then say: "I believe in a Lord that does whatever He wills." Usool ul-I'tiqaad of al-Laalikaa'ee (no.776).

And Hammaad bin Salamah said: "Abuse whosoever you see rejecting this (i.e. the Descent of Allaah to the Lowest Heaven)." Al-Arba'een fee Sifaat Allaah (no. 49).

So where does this vile, filthy, treacherous Jahmee stand with respect to the likes of these notables and great Imaams?!

And Abul Hasan al-Ash'aree (d. 324H) said: "And we believe in all the narrations that the People of Narration have considered to be authentic regarding the Descent (of Allaah) to the Lowest Heaven and that the Lord, Mighty and Majestic says: "Is there one asking, is there one seeking forgiveness", and the totality of what they quote and consider to be established, in opposition to the people of deviancy and misguidance." Al- Ibaanah (p. 60).
