    As far as i know brother Muhammed has only the turkish version. (But in turkish books they sometimes put arabic text next to turkish, inshah Allahu teala this time they did it too)

    Unfortunately it seems there are 2 versions available from that distributor. one turkish and one arabich, so i doubt that there is the arabic text in the turkish version...



    But is there really no online version of arabic Kitabut Tevhid? I would be surprised if one of the most important books in Aqida is not available in original arabic online...

    Abu Mansur al-Maturidi (Rahmetullahi aleyh) says:

    For us, what matters in this particular affair is, that Allahu Teala has rejected any likeness with his creation to his Dhat, through his saying: “Nothing can be compared to him.”
    We mentioned before, that He has no equal in his actions and attributes. Therefore we have to understand the Ayah: “Rahman did make istiwa on the arsh.” so, as He meant it in His rvelation, without likening Him to His creation. Because, it, (that nothing compares to him) is confirmed through his revelation and is supported by intellect. And with this, we do not give any tawil about Isitwa a final validity. Other tawils ,that have no likening Him to His creation, but which we do not know of, or which did not reach us, can also be correct.
    We make iman in what Allah meant with Istiwa.
    Similarly one has to believe in Topics as Ruyatullah, since there are divine revelations about it, but we have to deny any likeness to the creation and not declare any of the possibilities of tawil as the final validity in that matter.
