[10] And likewise this ta'weel contradicts with the fact of Islaam being a practical religion that is compatible and in harmony with every age and era. And it also contradicts the fact that Allaah - the Most High - has described the Qur'aan as being a discourse (bayaan), an explanation (tibyaan) for every single thing, and something made easy for remembrance - and in whose ayaat - reflection and contemplation has been requested. And for this reason Abul-Qaasim bin Mandah said in his book 'ar-Radd alal-Jahmiyyah': ''To the Ashaabul-Hadeeth - ta'weel is a form or rejection (takdheeb)"[47]

A General Note

After this it is necessary to also bear in mind some of the replies of the Scholars of Ahl us-Sunnah to the Ash'ariyyah - to whom the aforementioned Jahmee ascribes himself:

Such as the fact that they affirm some of Allaah's Attributes and yet interpret others with ta'weel. Then the question arises: Why this contradiction? If ta'weel is correct why do they not do ta'weel with regard to all of Allaah's attributes? Or if it is correct to affirm Allaah's attributes without ta'weel then why do they not affirm all of Allaah's attributes without ta'weel?

What sound principle and proof do they use to distinguish between the Attributes which they accept without ta'weel and those which they explain away with ta'weel???

If they say that they do ta'weel of those attributes which they claim are attributes of the creation and therefore are not befitting the Creator - such as Allaah's Face, Hand, Arising over the Throne (al-Istiwaa) - then the reply is that the creation also have other attributes such as existence, knowledge power, will etc. which they share with the Creator. Then why do you manage to accept these as Attributes of Allaah without ta'weel?

Then if they reply that we say that Allaah's existence is an existence not resembling that of the creation, but befitting His Majesty and likewise with regard to His Knowledge, Will and Power etc. - then the reply to them is: Then why are you not consistent and what prevents you from saying the same with the rest of Allaah's Attributes e.g. that Allaah has a Hand befitting His Majesty, not similar to the hands of creation - and so on with regard to all of the Attributes - which is indeed the way of the Salaf. What is the proof for this distinction from the Book and the Sunnah and the Salaf whom they claim to be following??


In conclusion it can be said: That the way of this Jahmee and the Ahl ul-Bid'ah in general - due to their being the most ignorant of people of the Narrations from Allaah's Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) and detesters of the narrations from the Companions[48], the Taabi'een and those after them amongst the Salaf - take from what has been narrated from them, only selectively - not being concerned with its reliability or authenticity - and not looking at the firmly established position of the one about whom they narrate in other than what they have chosen to narrate from him[49] - in order to suit their desires, promote their falsehood, deceive and misguide the common-folk and utter an enormous lie against Allaah and His Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) - and Allaah's refuge is sought from them, from their innovations, from their evil and from their misguidance and as a consequence, from the Fire - since every newly invented matter is an innovation and every innovation is misguidance and every misguidance is in the Hellfire.[50]
