    shukran for the information. Do you mind kindly informing me which edition you used for al-musamarah?

    Was there a specific reason why you chose not to state ibn Qutlubugha's opinion?

    this was a feature we wanted in the first release itself - and we even listed many of them in the initial versions, but soon we realised that it was time consuming and with the debate on 'imkan' raging on forums, what with kadh'dhabiyyah gloating and lying brazenly with perfect shamelessness, we wanted to get this out* at the earliest, and after internal discussions, we decided to leave out cosmetic features for the next release and with the rationale that those who wish to examine the arabic text will probably find it with just the name of the book.

    however, a revision is planned with facing arabic text for all citations, and a more detailed bibliography, in sha Allah.

    many of these texts are found as PDFs - most of these are versions found either on the library mostafa or aslein. i have also used manuscripts of some texts on makhtota/ksu for verification; and in a few cases cited from another book which is duly noted. we have tried our best to be as accurate as possible and if we have missed anything or slipped somewhere, we ask Allah ta'ala to forgive us. [please write to us at for any corrections, suggestions]

    wa billahi't tawfiq.

    *alHamdulillah, the kadh'dhabiyyah vermin have since scurried into their stinky holes and they won't be coming out very soon; and if they will, muslims will swat them sound and proper in sha Allah.

    Brother Abu Hasan, I checked in the bibliography section to see which editions of books were used but unfortunately they're not stated. If a future release is to come, please try to include the editions you used so that it would be easier to match the page numbers of the quotes in the footnotes with the actual arabic text. Just a friendly suggestion.

    If you could be so kind, can you please tell me which edition of al-musamarah you used? And if the edition is available online, then please provide a link here too.

    Also, out of curiosity, I don't recall seeing the quote from Qasim bin Qutlubugha pointing out his difference with the maatin and shaarih. Any particular reason why you left this out since it would clearly bolster your argument?

    possibly when abu hasan and abu nibras decide, other than that we must wait.

    every sunni mosque imam and friday speaker should read this book because it is important that they can explain this issue in a simple way but with reference to kalam terminology.

    this is probably a book that should be translated into urdu!

    secondly, why are people so blinded by deobandis? those who still consider the deobandi position as correct should sit alone in a dark room and be totally honest with themselves and ask: do i really believe that Allah can lie?

    the most shakhsiyat parast people in the world are deobandis. if they didn't know that their elders have supported the view of imkan; i am certain they would disown such a putrid belief but because their elders have said it, they will support it all the way in light of even such damning evidence.

    and the neutrals who used to think the sunni-deobandi difference was just an issue of sunnis extolling rasulAllah sallAllahu 'alaihi wasallam - you have seen how clearly these people even have a problem with the attributes of the Creator Himself! will you still not disown your soft-spots for deobandis?

    the book is not in hard copy. perhaps those on sunniport with links to sunni publishers can fix this? ;)
