A lesson on the belief in the Qadar (Destiny) of Allah.
Archive for January, 2008
A lesson on the Covenant God made with the human souls. The state of Fitrah is discussed.
A short lesson on the Israa’ and Mi`raaj of Prophet Muhammad.
An explanation of the famous saying of Abu Ja`far At-Tahawiyy:
“Allah is clear of all boundaries, extremities, sides, organs, other body parts/devices. None of the six directions contain Allah as is the case with all the created entities.”
This is a continuation of Lesson #17 and a refutation of those who distort the Verses of the Quran and Hadith.
This is a lesson on the methodology of how the Sunni Muslims interpret the Mutashaabih (“figurative”) Verses of the Qur’an and the Hadith of the Prophet. This is a critical lesson to help one understand the difference between the Islamic belief and that of the quasi-Salafis (Wahhabis).
“Tanzih” is the belief that Allah is ABSOLUTELY Free-of-Need and ABSOLUTELY Incomparable. This is the core of the Islamic Doctrine and distinguishes genuine Islam from various deviant factions, such as the Mushabbihah–those who resemble Allah to the creation (either implicitly or explicitly).
Another lesson from At-Tahawi
This lesson discusses the Islamic doctrine that God will be seen by the Muslims when the Muslims are in Paradise–without Allah being in a direction or location or a distance, an without Allah having dimensions or shape.
