Islamic Creed 10, Views. There is nothing like Him. There is nothing that makes Him powerless.
There is no god other than Him. He is the Eternal without a beginning and the Everlasting without end. He will never perish or come to an end.
Nothing happens except what He wills. He is different from any created being. He is Alive and never dies and He manages the entire creation and never sleeps. He creates without His being in need for His creation and provide s f or His creation without encountering any hardship. He causes death with no fear and quickens without difficulty.
He has always existed having His Attributes Eternally before creating the creation. Bringing creation into existence did not add anything to His Attributes that did not exist in Eternity. It was not only after the act of creation that He is Attributed as the Creator nor was it only by the act of bringing the creation into existence that He is Attributed as the One who made the creation begin. He was always the Lord Owner even when the created beings were non existent, and always the Creator even when there was no creation.
By the same analogy that He is the Bringer to life of the dead, after He has brought them to life, and deserves this name before bringing them to life, so too He deserves the name of Creator before He has created them. This is because He has the power to do everything, everything is dependent on Him, everything is easy for Him, and He does not need anything. There is nothing like Him in any way and He is the Hearer, the Seer”.
He Destined  destinie s f or those He created. He appointed to them fixed death times. Nothing about them was hidden from Him before He created them, and He knew everything that they would do before He created them.
Sharh Al-Aqeedah At-Tahawiyyah – English – Abu Jafar at-Tahawi
He ordered them to obey Him and forbade them to disobey Him. Everything happens according to His decree and will, and His will is accomplished. The only will that people have is what He will s f or them. What He will s f or them happens and what He does not will does not happen. He gives guidance to whoever He wills, and protects them from sinning, and keeps them healthy in their religion and safe from harm, out of His generosity; and He makes astray whoever He wills, and casts them down and deprives them His support, and afflicts them, out of His justice.
All of them are subject to His will between either His generosity or His justice. He is exalted beyond having opposites or equals. No one can ward off His destiny or put back His ruling or overpower the happening of the matters He willed for them to happen. We believe in all of this and are certain that all things come from Him. Every claim to prophethood after Him i s f alsehood and deceit. He is the one who has been sent to all the jinn and all mankind with Truth and Guidance and with Light and Illumination.
The Qur’ a n The Qur’ a n is the word of All a h.
The Qur’ a n descended from Him but be certain the Speech of All a h is without a manner of being. He sent it down on His Messenger as revelation. The believers accept it, as absolute truth. They are certain that it is, in truth, the word of All a h. It is not created, as is the speech of human beings. Hence, anyone who hears it and claims that it is human speech has become an unbeliever. All a h warns him and censures him and threatens him with Fire when He says, Exalted is He: Likening All a h to the Creation Anyone who attributes to All a h attributes in any way the same as a human being has become an unbeliever.
All those who grasp this will take heed and refrain from saying things such as the unbelievers say, and they will know that He, in His Attributes, is not like human a. Seeing of All a h The Seeing of All a h by the People of Paradise Al-Jannah is true, without their vision being all-encompassing and tahaawiyyah a manner of being . As the Book of our Lord has expressed it: We do not delve into that with baseless interpretation according to tahawjyyah own opinions or deluding ourselves by unsound inclinations.
Anyone who desires to know the things that are decreed as not knowable, and does not content with surrender, will find that his desire veils him from the pure clearing of All a h from resemblance to the creation Taw hi dclear knowledge and correct belief, and that he wavers between disbelief and belief, confirmation and denial and acceptance and rejection.
He will be subject to whisperings and will be lost and doubtful, being neither an accepting believer nor a denying rejecter.
Belief of a man in the seeing of All a h by the people of the abode of peace Paradise is not correct if he imagines it in his delusions, or interprets it according to his baseless own understanding since the baseless interpretation of this seeing or, indeed, the meaning of any of the matters which are in the realm of Lordship, is by avoiding its unfounded interpretation and strictly adhering to the submission .
This is the Religion of Muslims. He is clear from having limits, boundaries, sides, organs or limbs. Nor is He contained by the six directions as all created things are. All a h blessed him and granted him peace in this world and the next. Al- H aw d: The Destining The covenant which All a h made with A dam and his offspring is true.
All a h Eternally knew the exact number of those who would enter Paradise Al-Jannah and the exact number of those who would enter Hellfire Jahannam. This number will neither be increased nor decreased.
The same applies to all actions done by people, which are done exactly as All a h knew they would be done. Everyone i s f acilitated to what he was created for and it is the actions with which a man’s life is sealed which defines his ending. Those who are fortunate winners in the Hereafter are fortunate by the Destining of All a hand those who are deprived losers are losers by the Destining of All a h.
The exact nature of the Destining is All a h’s secret in His creation, and no angel near the Throne, nor Prophet sent with a message, has been given knowledge of it.
Delving into it and reflecting too much about it only leads to destruction and deprivation, and results in tyranny.
This in sum is what those of All a h’s Waliyys highly pious Muslims with enlightened hearts need to know and constitutes the degree of those firmly endowed with knowledge. For there are two kinds of knowledge: Denying the knowledge which is accessible is disbelief, and claiming the knowledge which is inaccessible is disbelief. Belief can only be firm when accessible knowledge is accepted and inaccessible knowledge is not sought after.
Even if all created beings were to gather together to make something fail to exist, whose existence All a h had written on the Tablet, they would not be able to do so.
And if all created beings were to gather together to make something exist which All a h had not written on it, they would not be able to do so. The Pen has dried having written down all that will be in existence until the Day of Judgment. Whatever has missed a person it would have never inflicted him, and whatever has inflicted a person it would have never missed him.
It is necessary for the slave to know that All a h already knows everything that is going to happen in His creation and destined it masterfully and firmly.
There is nothing that He has created in either the heavens or the earth that can contradict it, or add to it, or erase it, or change it, or decrease it, or increase it in any way. This is a fundamental aspect of belief and a necessary element of all knowledge and recognition of All a h’s clearance of resembling tahhawiyyah creation, and of All a h ‘s Lordship. As All a h says in His Book: What All a h creates is always a decreed destiny”. In his delusory attempt to investigate the Unforeseen, he is seeking a secret that can never be uncovered, and he ends up an taahwiyyah, telling nothing but lies.
AL- ^AQIDAH at-TAHAWIYYAH – Darulfatwa
He is tahawiyyag in need of the Throne and what is beneath it. He encompasses with his knowledge everythingand subjugates it, and what He has created is incapable of encompassing Him. We believe in the angels, and the Prophets, and the books which were revealed to the messengers, and we bear witness that they were all following the manifest Truth.
We do not enter into talk about the Reality of All a h nor do we allow vicious debates with the believers about the religion of All a h. We do not argue about the Qur’ a n and we bear witness that it is the Speech of the Lord of all the Worlds.
It is the Speech of All a h and no speech of any created being is comparable to it. We do not consider any of the people of our qiblah to he unbelievers because of any sin they have done, as long as they do not consider that sin to have been lawful.
Nor do we say that the sin of a man, as long as he is a believer, does not have a harmful effect on him. We hope that All a h will pardon the people of right action among the believers and grant them entrance into Paradise through His Mercy, but we cannot be certain of what they conceal genuinely, and thus we cannot bear witness that they will be in Paradise. We ask forgivenes s f or the people of wrong action among the Believers and, although we are afraid for them, we do not hold them in despair of the Mercy of All a h.
A person does not step out of belief except by denouncing what brought him into it. Belief consists of affirmation by the tongue and acceptance by the heart. Belief is, at base, the same for everyone, but the superiority of some over others in it is due to their piety and fear of All a htheir opposition to their desires, and their choosing what is more acceptable to All a h.
All the complete believers are Waliyys of All a h and the noblest of them in the sight of All a h are those who are the most obedient and who most closely follow the Qur’ a n. Belief consists of belief in All a h. His Angels, His Books, His Messengers, the Last Day, and belief that the destiny — both the good of it and the evil of it, the sweet of it and the bitter or it — is all from All a h. We believe in all these things.
We do not make any distinction between any of the Messengers, we accept as true what all of them brought. They are subject to His Will and Judgment.
If He Wills, He will forgive them and pardon them out of His generosity, as is mentioned in the Qur’ a n when He says: This is because All a h is the Protector of those who properly know Him and will not treat them in the Next World in the same way as He treats those who deny Him and who are bereft of His guidance and have failed to obtain His protection.
O All a hYou are the Protector of Islam and its people; make u s f irm in Islam so that we submit before You while engaged in it. We agree with doing the prayer behind any of the people of the qiblah whether right-acting or wrong-acting, and doing the funeral prayer over any of them when they die.
We do not say that any of them will categorically go to either Paradise or the Fire, and we do not accuse any of them of kufr disbeliefshirk associating partners with All a hor nif a q hypocrisyas long as they have not openly demonstrated any of those things.
