Good day and may Allah always keep us from which is bad.
I see that my previous post has not been able to touch the hearts of many and I admit it is hard to do as well.
Therefore I would like to change the style of which I will deliver my knowledge which I would like to share with every Muslim and those interested in Islam.
I would like to talk about a problem arisen among Muslims nowadays, it concerns with Islamic belief or 'Aqidah,
and it concerns the TRUTH about Allah.
Muslims nowadays are divided into those who are religious and those who are only Islam by name.
and those who are religious are further divided into knowledgeable and those who are not.
And those with knowledge is further divided into those with proof of their wisdom and those without.
O you who have believed, if there comes to you a disobedient one with information, investigate, lest you harm a people out of ignorance and become, over what you have done, regretful. (Al-Hujurat 49:6)
And they say, "None will enter Paradise except one who is a Jew or a Christian." That is [merely] their wishful thinking, Say, "Produce your proof, if you should be truthful." (Al-Baqarah 2:111)
And do not be like the ones who became divided and differed after the clear proofs had come to them. And those will have a great punishment. (Ali-Imran 3:105)
These are among the verses in the al-Quran that stresses on proof in knowledge as in 49:6 Allah command us to investigate or seek proof of the knowledge to prevent deviation. in 2:111, If you are true than you must have proof. and finally 3:105 those who deny even though proof has been given to them will suffer.
In Malaysia of what I am certain a certain belief about Allah spread through all the Muslims.
In which they are, 'Allah is everywhere', and 'Allah's hand in the al-Quran means Allah's power'
Now I don't say it is wrong, yet I don't say it is correct either.
Allah, the knowledge about the characteristic of Allah is considered as a knowledge of the unseen or Ghaib like the existence of angels and devils; something in which we cannot know using our limited minds and the human senses.
Therefore to know Allah, we have a guide, TWO guides to be exact; the al-Quran and the as-Sunnah.
Everything that we are supposed to know about Allah comes from these two. Anything OTHER from it, could be doubtful, for one thing I am certain of these other source of knowledge;
ARE THEY COMPLETELY, 100% SURE IT IS TRUE?
It could either be wrong, and it could also be true. It is considered as Syubhah as we do not know if it is true or the other.
IF IT IS TRUE, THEN MAY ALLAH BLESS YOU WITH FURTHER KNOWLEDGE
But if not,
IF IT IS FALSE, THEN ALLAH'S FURY WILL FALL UPON YOU ON THE DAY OF JUDGMENT FOR YOU HAVE SLANDER (FITNAH) ALLAH.
Do you not see the danger of accepting knowledge of unreliable source? accepting Islam knowledge other from the al-Quran and as-Sunnah?
Would you still be sure of knowledge that has no proof of its validity; whether it is true or false.
The Sahabat, Companions of the Prophet Muhammad, when come to them a verse from the al-Quran or Hadith that speaks of something which is abstract (Mutasyabih) or about the knowledge of the unseen (Ghaib). Their reaction would be one and only one that is to avoid sinful misinterpretation and slander for it will bring Allah's wrath to them.
They would say: "We have faith in these verse and we remain silent about it"
Are you still sure that 'Allah is everywhere' and 'Allah's hand in the al-Quran is Allah's power' even though there are no al-Quran verses nor a legitimate (Sahih) Hadith spoke about it?
If there is a source from the al-Quran and as-Sunnah I would except it, if not I would abstain from accepting it.
It is best to remain silent if you are uncertain and has no proof of it, for if not it might bring Allah's wrath upon you on the day of judgment.
Lets remind each other for the things we've done
And if there is any mispoken words in this post, feel free to criticized and correct me.
