  1. al-mutlaq yajri `ala al-itlaqi = that which is mutlaq (unconditional) remains upon its unconditionality.

    Reference: al-`Usul al-Shashi of Imam Nidham al-Din al-Shashi

    Also, another `usul that is useful:

    al-khabr al-wahid wa al-qiyas la yukhassis al-aam wa la yuqayid al-mutlaq (a solitary narration and analogy does not specify the general nor does it cause the unconditional to have a condition)
