FIQH AL-ASMAA AL-HUSNAA CLASS 3 STUDY NOTES

Notes for Class #3 of Fiqhul-Asmaa al-Husnaa

 

Abu Muhammad al-Maghribee

This is a continuation of the introduction to the principles by which we understand the Names and Attributes of Allahu ta’aala; reading from the book The Correct Aqeedah and That Which Opposes It by Sheikh ibn Baaz, rahimahullah.

We begin by remembering the statement of the sheikh:

It is from eemaan in Allah to have faith in His Beautiful Names and Lofty Attributes which are found in the Book of Allah, azza wa jal, and have been affirmed in the authentic sunnah of the Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم. And we do this without tahreef (distorting the words or meanings), without ta’teel (divesting or denying His Names or Attributes), without takyeef (asking “how”) and without tamtheel (making resemblance of Allah to any of His creation).

Some of the statements of the imaams of the past regarding these principles:

Rabee’ah bin Abee Abdir-Rahmaan (died in 136, was from amongst the tabi’oon of Madinah) said: “Al-istawa (Allah’s Ascending) is known, and how is not comprehendable, and from Allah is the Message (islam) and upon the Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم is to clearly convey it, and upon us is to affirm it.

Imaam Malik said: “Al-istawa is known, how is unknown, to have eemaan in it is obligatory and to question it is an innovation.”

Abdullah ibn Mubaarak said: “We know that our Lord, the Most Perfect, is above the heavens, above his Arsh (throne), separate from His creation.

 

Knowing and understanding these principles is the door to the proper understanding of the Beautiful and Perfect Names of Allah and His Lofty Attributes.  Whoever wishes to read additional books of the great ualama of the past on this topic regarding our creed may turn to such books like:

Kitaabus-Sunnah by Abdullah ibn Imaam Ahmad (died in 290 H.)

Kitabut-Tawheed by Imaam Muhammad ibn Khuzaymah (died 311 H.)

Kitaabus-Sunnah by Abul-Qaasim al-Laalikaaee at-Tabaree (died 418 H.)

Aqeedatul-Hamawiyyah of Sheikhul-Islam ibn Taymiyyah (died 728 H)

We must know and adhere to the Aqeedah (belief) of Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah, those who are on the pathway of the Salafusl-Saaleh, the pathway of that which the Messengerصلى الله عليه وسلم left his Companions upon.  They affirm for Allah that which He has affirmed for Himself in His Book and what has been affirmed for Him in the authentic sunnah of His Messenger  .And we must hold firmly to the truth, humbly accepting it, while being sincere to Allah in the quest for it. And Allah wilh grant such person harmony with the truth and show him clear evidences. And Allah says in the Quran:

بَلْ نَقْذِفُ بِالْحَقِّ عَلَى الْبَاطِلِ فَيَدْمَغُهُ فَإِذَا هُوَ زَاهِقٌ وَلَكُمُ الْوَيْلُ مِمَّا تَصِفُونَ

Nay, We fling (send down) the truth (this Qur'ân) against the falsehood (disbelief), so it destroys it, and behold, it (falsehood) is vanished. And woe to you for that (lie) which you ascribe (to Us) (against Allâh by uttering that Allâh has a wife and a son). Surat Al-Anbiya 21:1

وَلَا يَأْتُونَكَ بِمَثَلٍ إِلَّا جِئْنَاكَ بِالْحَقِّ وَأَحْسَنَ تَفْسِيرًا

And no example or similitude do they bring (to oppose or to find fault in you or in this Qur'ân), but We reveal to you the truth (against that similitude or example), and the better explanation thereof. Surat Al-Furqan 25:33

FIQH AL-ASMAA AL-HUSNAA CLASS 3

This is the weekly Wednesday afternoon class on the study of the Names and Attributes of Allah, azza wa jal, and how we understand them and act upon that understanding in our everyday lives.  

This is our third class in this series and we continue with the introduction to the obligation of having the correct understanding of Tawheed al-Asmaa was-Siffat.  While this class is specifically given to the women, we encourage everyone to join us.  This portion of the introduction was taken from one of the works of Imaam ibn Baaz, rahimahullaah, العقيدة الصحيحة وما يضادها (The Correct Islamic Creed and That Which Opposes It).

Brief study notes as well as monthly quizzes will be posted here on the blog.  We ask Allah to  reward our diligent sisters worldwide who contribute to these notes.  May Allah raise them in rank and bless them in their time and good efforts.  Aameen.

We encourage you to join us in our classes at Masjid at-Tawheed in Stone Mountain, GA. If you are not able to attend in person, you can listen in via ourSpreaker channel or our telelink line at 712-432-2856.

Fiqh al-Asmaa al-Husnaa Class 2 Study Notes

Notes for Class #2 of Fiqhul-Asmaa al-Husnaa

From The Correct Aqeedah and That Which Opposes It by Sheikh ibn Baaz

Abu Muhammad al-Maghribee

We continue with this introduction to the principles by which we understand the Names and Attributes of Allahu ta’aala.

We must know the importance of having the correct aqeedah (creed).

Aqeedah (creed or belief) is the foundation of the religion. It is that which all deeds of the heart, tongue and limbs are built upon. If a person’s aqeedah is not sound, then their deeds will not benefit them (prayer, fasting, charity, etc…).

The correct aqeedah is that which the Companions of the Messenger of Allah were upon, may Allah be pleased with them and the Salafus-Saaleh were upon after them.  (As the Messenger sss said, “Hold fast to my sunnah and the sunnah of the rightly-guided khaleefahs after me.”  Reported by Abu Dawud and Sheikh al-Albaani graded it Sahih)

We must have the proper understanding regarding the principles related to Allah’s Names and Attributes.

Understanding the principles surrounding the belief in Allah’s Names and Attributes is an area where many have gone astray.  And the proper understanding is what differentiates us from the the deviant sects.

We believe in Allah’s Names and Attributes which are found in the Quran and the authentic narrations of the Messenger sss. These are from the unseen, so it is not permissible to take them from any other sources.

We affirm for Allah that which He affirmed for Himself in His Book and upon the tongue of His Messenger sss.  And we do this:

Without tahreef  تحريف - (distorting) this means changing the wording or the meaning

Without ta’teel تعطيل - (divesting) this means to deny the Attributes of Allah

Without takyeef تكييف - this means to ask or explain how (kayfa) the Attributes are

Without tamtheel تمثيل - (making resemblance) - this means to liken any of the Attributes of Allah to that of any of the creation

It is upon us to have eemaan in Allah and His Beautiful Names and Lofty Attributes in a manner which befits Him, subhaanahu wa ta’aala, as Allah says in the Quran:

لَيْسَ كَمِثْلِهِ شَيْءٌ وَهُوَ السَّمِيعُ البَصِيرُ

There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer. (Ash-Shura 42:11)

This is a clear refutation against the Mumaththilah (those who make tamtheel).  They say that as Allah affirms for Himself a hand, since we have hands, they say there is resemblance.  No! Rather Allah informs us there is nothing like unto Him. And we cannot make this resemblance.

Also another proof found in the Quran is the saying of Allahu ta’aala:

فَلاَ تَضْرِبُواْ لِلّهِ الأَمْثَالَ إِنَّ اللّهَ يَعْلَمُ وَأَنتُمْ لاَ تَعْلَمُونَ

So put not forward similitudes for Allâh (as there is nothing similar to Him, nor He resembles anything). Truly! Allâh knows and you know not. (An-Nahl 16:74)

Believing and having eemaan in the Names and Attributes of Allah without tahreef, without ta’teel, without takyeef and without tamtheel, this is from the aqeedah of the Companions and after them the taabi’een and the atba’a taabi’een after them and the great imaams who followed in their footsteps.  Imaam al-awzaa’ee said, “I asked az-Zuhri and Makhul about the ayaat pertaining to Allah’s Attributes and they replied to leave them as they are.”

Note** The taabi’een are the generation who came after the Messenger, but met the companions.  While the atba’a taabi’een came after the companions but were with the taabi’een.
