Lesson 6: The ‘Aqeedah (Creed) of al-Raaziyyaan – Uways at-Taweel
In this sixth lesson on the Aqeedah of al-Raziyyaan, our teacher explains the 7th, 8th and 9th points in the treatise (the text is after the audio below).
Some points discussed:
- Clarification of the ‘Uluww (Highness) of Allāh and its 3 different meanings
- An explanation of Allāh being high above His Creation based on several proofs in the Qur’ān & Sunnah
- Some groups that oppose Ahl-us-Sunnah in this and a clarification of the invalidity of their false arguments
- An encouragement to have Murāqabah (watchfulness) of Allāh., knowing that Allāh knows, hears and sees all we do
The class was held on Saturday, 4th of Dhul-Hijjah, 1441 (July 25th, 2020).
Points 7-9 from the Treatise:
وأن الله عزوجل على عرشه بائن من خلقه كما وصف نفسه في كتابه وعلى لسان رسوله – صلى الله عليه وسلم – بلا كيف
[7. That Allah (عزوجل) is over His Throne, He is separate and distinct from His creation just as He has described Himself in His Book and upon the tongue of His Messenger (may Allah raise his rank and grant him peace), without asking “How?”]
أحاط بكل شيء علما
[8. He encompasses everything with His Knowledge.]
لَيْسَ كَمِثْلِهِ شَيْءٌ وَهُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْبَصِيرُ
[9. “There is nothing like unto him and He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer.” (Ash-Shura 42:11)]
