    Imam 'Izz al-Din ibn 'Abd al-Salam al-Sulami, rahmat Allahi ta'la alayh:

    Allah has ordered us to engage in jihad to give victory to His religion. The [difference being that] the scholar’s weapon is his knowledge and tongue just like the ruler’s weapon is his sword and spears. So, just as rulers are not permitted to put down their weapons in the face of atheists and polytheists scholars are not permitted to still their tongues in the face of heretics and innovators*

    Imam 'Izz al-Din ibn 'Abd al-Salam al-Sulami, rahmat Allahi ta'la alayh:

    …every religious scholar must, when he sees the Truth brought low and what is Right undermined, muster all the strength he has in order to assist the Truth and what is Right. He must consider himself more deserving of humiliation and incapacitation than [Truth and Right]. If he raises the Truth and makes manifest what is Right, he may seek their shade and content himself with whatever [gains] may come from elsewhere.*

    The world's tallest clock tower, a hybrid of Big Ben and the Empire State Building, hovers above Muslim pilgrims as they walk around the Kaaba in Mecca, Islam's most sacred site.


    SayyidunaSalman alKhayr alFarisi, Radhi Allahu Ta'ala anhu,

    “Verily, land itself does not make anyone holy. Rather, a human being is only made holy by his righteous deeds.” (1)

    Mount Qasyoun, Bilad alSham.

    Sayyiduna Mu’adh ibn Jabal, Radhi Allahu Ta'ala anhu:

    A servant will not reach the heights of faith until humility is more beloved to him than nobility,

    until less in the world is more beloved to him than more,

    until it is the same whether he is loved or hated for the truth,

    and until he judges people the way he would love to be judged for himself and his household.” (2)

    When Malik ibn Anas, (i: Rahmat Allahi Ta'ala 'alayh), was asked about (i: Imam) Ayub Al-Sakhtiyani, (i: Rahmat Allahi Ta'ala 'alayh), he said:

    I never spoke to you of anyone better than Ayub.

    He also said:

    He, (i.e. Ayub) performed Hajj twice, and I used to watch him (from far away), but didn’t listen to him.

    However, (I noticed that) whenever Prophet Muhammad (i: Sall Allahu alayhi wa alihi wa salam), was mentioned he would begin to weep, until I felt for him. So once I saw what I saw of him, and how much he revered the Prophet, (i: Sall Allahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa salam), I [started] writing from him. (3)

    alShaykh al'Imam alBahr, Mawlana Hujjat al Islam, Sharaf alAʾimma, Zayn aldīn, alGhazali, alayhi arRahma:

    Ibn alMuqaffa heard that some people complained of the many rats in his house. It was said to him,

    “If only you had a cat!”

    Ibn alMuqaffa said,

    “I am afraid that the rats would hear the sound of the cat and flee to the houses of my neighbors,

    for then I would have loved for them what I do not love for myself.”

    (i : Mawlana Hujjat al-Islam),

    “Know that it is not only the right of the neighbors to be safe from harm,
    but rather potential harm.

    If the neighbor is also safe from harm,
    then his right is not fulfilled by that and it is not enough to avoid potential harm.

    Rather, he must be treated with kindness, good will,
    and virtuous conduct.”*

    you didn't get it. muHal/mustaHil means 'impossible'.

    1. attributes of perfection (sifat al-kamal)

    2. attribute that is a flaw (al-naqS)

    3. attribute that has "neither perfection in it, nor a flaw"

    ---
    Allah sub'Hanahu wa ta'ala can be attributed only by the first kind - as all His Attributes are attributes of Perfection as said in bad' al-amali:

    ilaahu'l khalqi mawlana qadimun
    wa mawSufun bi awSafi'l kamali

    both the second types - flaws and those which are neither-perfection-nor-flaw, are muHal for Allah ta'ala.

    only the devbandi claims that his god can be flawed - and if he didn't have the flaw, he would become lesser than his slave.
    or those who think they are sufis and gnostics - such as keller - who do not know the basic aqidah.

    ta'ala Allahu uluwwan kabeera. it is mustaHil for Allah ta'ala to have a naqS.

    a filthy devbandi with a handle "muhammad ali" on our forum once wrote:
    whether this was zameel writing with that nom-de-plume or indeed another individual, i don't know. but devbandi he was. this is their putrid aqidah.

    ----
    numerous works mention this. for example, imam ibn abd al-salam in his qawayid and (the same) in his risalah:

    qwdkubra,1-303.jpg

    rasayil-izz, p32.jpg

    Yes brother.
    Yes. Thank you for pointing that out. There is an error, please disregard it.

    Abu hasan shahib, explained, briefly, another category, or 3rd:
    1{perfection}
    2 {muhaal}
    3 {neither-perfect nor muhaal}
    It was these neither, we were asking about.
    What are they?
    If you could mention a number?
    With references.
    Otherwise, my brothers,
    جزاك اللهُ خيرًا كثيرا و أَحْسَن جزا



    "Moreover, even that which neither has deficiency nor splendour is ‘Muhaal’ for Allah."

    "In fact, matters that neither have any greatness nor any deficiency..."

    "He is transcendent from even such attributes which have neither perfection nor a flaw..."

    ***
    I understand the Muhaal, or deficiency, as one of the brothers mentioned....

    "For example - lies, deceit, betrayal, tyranny, ignorance and immodesty etc, flaws are all absolutely impossible for Him."

    What are the matters that have greatness, that are Muhaal?
    Could you mention them with reference?
    Like the deficiencies that are muhal?

    Dear brother another two questions, kindly oblige:


    Did you intend to say: " What are the matters that DO NOT have greatness, that are Muhaal?"

    If you never intended above and the original question of yours does NOT have a typo from which statement is it derived?
     
  10. Abul Hasnayn

    Abul Hasnayn musjidulhaq.com

    Dear brother, is the further elaboration of the above quote the crux of your query?

    Please confirm ,it will take a few days but I will consult with an expert and have the SHARAH looked up to see if there is any further explanation on this statement.

    it is fine to disagree, we all have different standards. some have high standards, some have medium standards. some have low standards - it is clear what standards you have from your uploading of the attempted translation of maqal al urafa.

    matters that do NOT have greatness. I hope the confusion is over, by now.

    the point is that the Attributes of Allah ta'ala are all Attributes of Perfection.

    any attribute that is flaw or imperfection is muHal, as is obvious.

    a further point is that such an attribute which is neither perfection nor flaw - even such a thing cannot be attributed to Allah ta'ala.

    wAllahu a'alam.

    The people of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jama’ah have recently been manipulated by some so-called scholars that saying “Ya RasoolAllah” is not permissible, Haraam and some even, Allah forbid!, say that it’s kufr and shirk. Below are some proofs to empower our Sunni brothers and to ensure they know where they stand as a Sunni and […]

    subHanAllah.

    the hypocrites of today call it shirk when sunnis call upon rasulAllah (sallallahu'alayhi wa sallam), seeking his aid, by saying, "ya rasulAllahi unZur Haalana" and likewise they call it shirk when we seek aid from the awliya. the word used in this ayah is also 'unZuruna'.

    the munafiqs of madina too were haughty and would turn away in arrogance when they were asked to go to the the Prophet (peace be upon him) as mentioned in surah al-munafiqun, verse no. 5.

    but on the day of judgement their self-concocted ideas about tawhid will fall apart and they will seek aid from the believers instead of Allah ta'ala. they will be humiliated from all directions and at every level.

    may Allah ta'ala not make us of them. Aameen.
