    I think, if, you, permit me brother, it means, that, they are in the asl, before aberrancy paradigms of the primordial Tradition, ie, Islam. They were not called Jews and Christians to begin, but, later on identified as such, they would not have gone astray if amongst the followers of those paradigms was also Imam Abu Hanifa, RahmatAllahi Ta'ala alayh, this is how, I understood this..

    Imam Sahl ibn Abd Allah alTusturî ‘rahmatullâhi aleyh’, one of the great Awliyâ who has reached the grade of haqîqat (the highest grade in sufism), says,

    “If there had been a person like Imâm-ı A’dhâm Abû Hanîfa (rahmat-Allâhi ta’âlâ ‘alaih) among the ummats of Hadrat Mûsâ and ’Isâ, they wouldn’t have turned into Jews or Christians."

    The Mutalaq Mujtahid, al-Imam
    Ayyûb alSakhtiyânî, Rahmat Allahi Ta'ala alay:

    Whoever loves Abû Bakr has upheld the religion, whoever loves ‘Umar has made the way clear, whoever loves ‘Uthmân is enlightened by the light of Allâh, and whoever loves ‘Alî has taken the firmest handhold. Whoever speaks well of the Companions of Allâh’s Messenger – Allâh’s peace and blessings be upon him – is clear of hypocrisy (nifâq), but whoever belittles any one of them or dislikes [any one of them] for something he did, then he is a heretic (mubtadi’), an opponent of the Sunnah and the Righteous Predecessors (the Salaf), and it is feared that none of his deeds will be raised to the heavens until he loves all of [the Companions] and his heart is clear towards them.

    It is reported that Imam Ayyûb Al-Sakhtiyânî, Rahmat Allahi Ta'ala alay: was asked:

    Is knowledge today greater or lesser [in amount]? He replied,

    “There is more speech today, but there was more knowledge in the past.” [2]

    It is reported that Imam Ayyûb Al-Sakhtiyânî, Rahmat Allahi Ta'ala alay, used to pray all night and hide it. In the morning, he would raise his voice as if he had just woken up. [3]

    It is reported that, the mutalaq Mujtahid, Imam Hammād ibn Zayd, Rahmat Allahi Ta'ala alay, said:

    Ayyūb [Al-Sakhtiyānī] used to have a red shawl which he wore in ihrām, and which he had kept for his shroud. I used to walk with him sometimes; he would take different paths and I would be amazed at how he knew of them. He would do this fleeing from people in case they recognized him and said, “There’s Ayyūb.”[4]

    The Amir alMu'minin of Ahadith, the mutalaq Mujtahid,
    Imam,
    Shu’bah ibn alHajjaj alAtaki, Rahmat Allahi Ta'ala alay, said:

    I would sometimes go with Ayyūb for some need, but he would not let me walk with him; he would move here and there in case people noticed him. [5]

    It is reported that when Ayyub alSakhtiyani was once travelling, a huge group of people came to see him off. [When he saw them] he said:

    Had I not known that Allah knows that I inwardly dislike this [reputation], I would have feared the loathing of Allah, Exalted and Glorified is He. [6]

    It is reported from the Mujtahid Imam Ḥammād ibn Zayd that ʾAyyūb alSakhtiyānī, was once in a gathering when he was effected (moved to tears) by an exhortation, so he began wiping his nose saying, How severe a cold can be! [7]

    It is also reported from Imam Ḥammād that ʾAyyūb was once overcome with weeping, so he said, A shaykh, when he gets very old, dribbles. [8]

    Imam Ayyub Al-Sakhtiyani said,

    “Abu Qilaba was asked to become judge of Basra, so he escaped to Syria and lived there for some time, then returned.

    Ayyub said, “I said to him, ‘If you had assumed the judgeship and had been just, you would have received two rewards.’

    He replied, ‘O Ayyub, if a swimmer falls into the sea, for how long might he possibly swim?’ ” [9]

    It is reported from the Mujtahid Imam, Ḥammād ibn Zayd, that he said, I never saw a man who used to smile more at people than ʾAyyūb. [10]

    Taqi al-Din ibn Taymiyyah rahmatullah 'alayh:

    The foundation of the religion of Islam is built on praising, glorifying, and treating with dignity the Leader of all the Prophets, (a: alayhim salawatu wa salam). Such praise, glorification, and treating with dignity is praise for the entire Religion; and its removal is the end of the Religion. By not giving such respect to the Prophet, all religion comes to an end. [1]

    ***

    The companion of Sayyidinna Imam 'Ali ibn Abi Talib karamullahu wajhulkarim wa radiullahu ta'la anhu, the Faqih, the Imam ‘Abidah al-Salmåni rahmatullah 'alayh, was once informed: We have in our possession a strand of hair of the Prophet, (a: sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa baraka wa salam), by way of Sayyidinna Anas ibn Målik (radiullahu ta'la anhu).

    He remarked (a: rahmatullah 'alayh):

    That I possess a lock of his hair is more beloved to me than all the gold and silver on the face of this earth.

    Imam Shams al-Din al-Dhahabi rahmatullah 'alayh:

    This utterance of ‘Abidah is a benchmark for perfect love, which is his preferring a strand of prophetic hair to all the gold and silver that people may possess. This statement, from this Imam, was uttered fifty years after the Prophet, upon whom be peace. So what should we say in our time if we were to find a lock of his hair reliably confirmed; or a thong from his sandal; some of his nail clippings; or shards of a cup from which he drank? If a rich person were to expend the greater part of his wealth in acquiring any of these things, would you think him a spendthrift or foolish? Never! So spend what you have in visiting his Mosque which he built with his own hands, and sending blessings on him at his Chamber in his City. And relish the sight of his Uhud and love it; for your Prophet, peace be upon him, loved it. And revive yourself by spending some time in his Garden where he sat. For you will not be a true believer until this master becomes more beloved to you than yourself, your children, your wealth, and the whole of humanity. [2]

    ***

    (a: Sayyidinna) Abu Hurayra (radiullahu ta'la anhu) said that

    the Messenger of Allah (a: sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa baraka wa salam) said,

    "Those in my community with the strongest love for me are the people who will come after me. Some of them would give their family and wealth to have seen me." [3]

    ***

    (a: Sayyidinna) 'Umar ibn al-Khattab (a: radiullahu ta'la anhu) said to the Prophet (a: sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa baraka wa salam),

    "I love you more than any thing except my soul which is between my two sides."

    The Prophet (a: sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa baraka wa salam) replied,

    "None of you will believe until i am dearer to him than his own soul."

    (a: Sayyidinna) 'Umar (a: radiullahu ta'la anhu) said,

    "By the one who has sent down the Book on you, I love you more than my soul which is between my two sides."

    The Prophet (a: sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa baraka wa salam) said,

    " 'Umar, now you have it!" [4]

    ***

    It is related that a man came to the Prophet (a: sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa baraka wa salam) and said,

    "Messenger of Allah, I love you

    more than my family and my possessions.

    I remember you and I cannot wait until I can come and look at you.

    I remember that I will die and you will die and I know that when you enter the
    Garden, you will be raised up with the Prophets.

    When I enter it, I will not see you."

    Allah then revealed,

    "Whoever obeys Allah and the Messenger, those are those whom Allah has blessed amoung the Prophets, the true ones, the martyrs and the rightdoers.They are the best of Companions."(4:68)

    The Prophet (a: sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa baraka wa salam) called the man and recited the verses to him. [5]

    ***

    (a: Sayyidinna) Anas ibn Mailk (a: radiullahu ta'la anhu) said,

    "The Messenger of Allah (a: sallallahu 'alayhi wa sahbihi wa baraka wa salam) said to me,

    'My son, if you can be without any grudge in your heart against anyone in the morning and evening, be like that.'

    Then he (a: sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa baraka wa salam) added,

    'My son, that is part of my sunna. Whoever gives life to my sunna has loved me and whoever loves me is with me in the Garden.'" [6]

    ***

    (a: Sayyidinna) Anas (a: radiullahu ta'la anhu) related that the Prophet (a: sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa baraka wa salam) said,

    "Whoever loves me will be with me in the Garden." [7]

    ***

    The Prophet (a: sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa baraka wa salam) said to (a: Sayyidinna) Abu Sa'id al-Khudri (a: radiullahu ta'la anhu),

    "Poverty for those amoung you who love me comes quicker than a flood from the top of the mountain to the bottom." [8]

    ***

    (a: Sayyidinna Imam) 'Ali (a: al-Murtada, karamullahu wajhulkarim, wa radiullahu ta'la anhu), describing the Prophet (a: sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa baraka wa salam), said,

    "Whoever saw him suddenly was in awe of him.

    Whoever mixed with him loved him." [9]

    ***

    (a: Sayyidinna) 'Amr ibn al-'As (a: radiullahu ta'la anhu),

    " There is no one I love better than the Messenger of Allah". [10]

    ***

    Whenever the Companions (a: radiullahu ta'la anhum) of the Prophet (a: sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa baraka wa salam)

    heard his (a: sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa baraka wa salam) name after he (a: sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa baraka wa salam) died,

    they were humble,

    their skins trembled and they wept.

    It was the same with many of the Followers (a: rahmatullah 'alayhim ajama'in)

    Some of them act like that out of love and yearning for him (a: sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa baraka wa salam),

    others out of respect and esteem". [11]

    ***

    One of the signs of love for the Prophet (a: sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa baraka wa salam)

    is having compassion for his (a: sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa baraka wa salam) community,

    giving them good counsel,

    striving for their best interests

    and removing what is harmful from them

    just as the Prophet (a: sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa baraka wa salam) was

    "compassionate, merciful to the believers."(9:128) [12]

    ***

    (a: Sayyidinna) 'Umar (a: al-Faruq, radiullahu ta'la anhu) went out at night to observe the people

    and saw a lamp in a house

    where an old woman was teasing some wool,

    saying:

    "The prayer of the good be upon Muhammad,

    may the blessed bless him!

    I was standing in tears before dawn.

    If only I knew, when death gives us different forms,

    Whether the Abode will join me to my beloved?"

    She meant the Prophet (a: sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa baraka wa salam)

    (a: Sayyidinna) 'Umar sat down in tears. [13]

    ***

    It is related that a woman said to (a: Umm al-Mu'mineen Sayyidatayna) 'A'isha (a: al-Siddiqa, radiullahu ta'la anha),

    "Show me the grave of the Messenger of Allah".

    She showed it to her

    and the woman wept until she died. [14]

    ***

    It was the practice of the Pious Predecessors and the Imams of the past (a: radiullahu ta'la anhum ajma'in) that whenever the Prophet (a: sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa sahabihi wa baraka wa salam) was mentioned in their presence they were overwhelmed by reverence humbleness, stillness, and dignity.

    (a: Imam) Ja`far ibn Muhammad ibn `Ali ibn al-Husayn ibn `Ali ibn Abi Talib (a: al-Sadiq, radiullahu ta'la anhum)

    would turn pale whenever he heard the Prophet (a: sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa baraka wa salam) mentioned.

    Imam Malik (a: ibn Anas rahmatullah 'alayh)

    would not mention a hadith except in a state of ritual purity.

    (a:Imam)`Abd al-Rahman ibn al -Qasim ibn Muhammad ibn Abu Bakr al-Siddiq (a: radiullahu ta'la anhum)

    would turn red and stammer whenever he heard the Prophet (a: sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa baraka wa salam) mentioned.

    As for

    (a: Imam)`Amir ibn `Abd Allah ibn al-Zubayr ibn al-`Awamm al Asadi (a: radiullahu ta'la anhum)

    he would weep until his eyes had no tears left in them.

    When any hadiths were mentioned in their (a: radiullahu ta'la anhum ajma'in) presence
    they would lower their voices.

    (a: Imam) Malik (a: ibn Anas rahmatullah 'alayhi) said:

    "The Prophet’s (a: sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa baraka wa salam) sacredness (hurma) is in death is as his sacredness was in life."[15]

    ***

    (a: Imam) Malik (a: ibn Anas rahmatullah 'alayhi) once evidenced remarkable capacity of endurance in continuing his work.

    A scorpian had crept into his sock and stung him several times in the course of the lecture. Every time the scorpian stung him, he would change colour but continued courageuosly with his work.

    At the end of his lecture he said that he did not do so in order to display his power of endurance.

    He did so in order to express his deep reverence for the traditions of the Prophet (a: sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa baraka wa salam) which he was dictating. [16]

    ***

    His (a: Imam Malik ibn Anas rahmatullah 'alayh,) generosity was legendary, as was his love for the Prophet (a: sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa baraka wa salam), whom he held in such awe and respect that he would not mount his horse within the confines of Madina out of reverence for the ground that enclosed the Prophet's (a: sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa baraka wa salam) body. [17]

    ***

    Imam Malik (a: ibn Anas rahmatullah 'alayh), whenever the Prophet (a: sallallahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa baraka wa salam) was mentioned, his color would change, and he would incline his body until those who were sitting with him felt discomfort. This was mentioned to him and he said:

    "If you had seen what I have seen you would not blame me for what you see now. I used to see Muhammad ibn al-Munkadir--and he was the master of the scholars (sayyid al-qurra')--and we dared not ever ask him about a hadith except he wept until we pitied him." [18]

    ***

    When Malik ibn Anas, (a: rahmat Allahi Ta'ala 'alayh), was asked about (i: Imam) Ayub Al-Sakhtiyani, (a: 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 (a: Sall Allahu alayhi wa alihi wa sahbihi wa baraka wa salama), 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, (a: Sall Allahu 'alayhi wa alihi wa salam), I [started] writing from him. (19)

    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*

    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)

    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

    imam ibn abi'sh sharif in his musamarah:
    musayarah, 2-239.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?
     
  19. 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.
