The Madanî Gift Regarding the Salafî Creed

{Preface}



1- At-Tuhfat'ul Madaniyyah fi'l Aqîdat'is Salafiyyah, published by Dâr'ul Âsimah. This book was also published by Mu'assasat'ur Risâlah with the title al-Fawâkih'ul Idhâb fî Mu'taqad'ish Shaykh Muhammad bin Abd'il Wahhâb fi's Sifât (The Sweet Fruits Regarding the Creed of Shaykh Muhammad bin Abd'il Wahhab Regarding the Attributes of Allâh). We used the version by Dâr'ul Âsimah as the primary manuscript during our translation. We noted the differences in the copy of Mu'assasat'ur Risâlah in brackets. In order to make it easy for the reader, we added titles in braces.
"If the ignorant persists, gets haughty, is determined upon his transgression and misguidance, chooses blindness over guidance, and if what he falls into and disputes with regards to is Shirk Akbar (major Shirk) that brings the person who commits it out of the fold of the faction of Muslims to the party of polytheists, then in this case, the just verdict is the sword!" (al-Fath'ur Rabbânî min Fatâwâ'l Imâm ash-Shawkânî, 1/185)

About the Author

He is Shaykh Hamad bin Nâsir bin Uthmân bin Mu'ammar an-Najdî at-Tamîmî al-Hanbalî, from the people of Uyaynah and the family of Mu'ammar. He was a well-known scholar and from the callers to Tawhîd of the area of Najd. He was also from the students of Shaykh Muhammad bin Abd'il Wahhâb Rahimahullâh and Shaykh Ibnu Ghannâm Rahimahullâh.

He was the leader of the delegation of scholars who went to debate the scholars of Makkah. The subject of their debate was the ruling of a person who supplicates to a prophet or saint and seeks help from them, whether or not a person who says La Ilaha Illallâh but does not pray or give Zakâh is Muslim, and building structures over the graves. Shaykh Hamad Rahimahullâh won the debate. He authored a book regarding the ruling of these issues named al-Fawâkih'ul Udhâb because his opponents wanted the Shaykh to explain them.

Many studied under him. Amongst his students are:

• His son Abd'ul Azîz bin Hamad Rahimahullâh.
• Sulaymân bin Abdillâh Âl'ush Shaykh Rahimahullâh.
• Abd'ur Rahmân bin Hasan Âl'ush Shaykh Rahimahullâh.
• Abdullâh bin Abd'ir Rahmân Abâ Butayn Rahimahullâh.

He authored many treatises and verdicts. Among them are:

• Al-Fawâkih'ul Idhâb fi'r Raddi alâ Man Lam Yahkum bi's Sunnati wa'l Kitâb.
• At-Tuhfat'ul Madaniyyah fi'l Aqîdat'is Salafiyyah.

He also has other treatises and verdicts found within the Majmû'at'ur Rasâ'il wa'l Masâ'il'in Najdiyyah and ad-Durar'us Saniyyah.

He passed away in Makkah, the year 1225 H. May Allâh have mercy upon him, Âmîn!2

{Preface}

In the name of Allâh the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful,

[There is no might nor power except with Allâh, the Most High, the Supreme.] All praise is due to Allâh, the Lord of the Worlds.

May peace and blessings be upon [our master] Muhammad, upon his family, and all of his companions.

{Question:} May Allâh perpetuate benefitting from your knowledge, what is your view regarding the verses of the Sifât (pl. Sifah; attributes) and the Ahâdîth (pl. Hadîth) mentioned in respect to this?
Such as the statement of Allâhu Taâlâ,


﴿الرَّحْمَنُ عَلَى الْعَرْشِ اسْتَوَى﴾
"Ar-Rahmân (the Most Merciful) did Istiwâ (established) above the Throne." (Tâ-Hâ, 20/5)

And like His statement,


﴿يَدُ اللَّهِ فَوْقَ أَيْدِيهِمْ﴾
"The Hand of Allâh is above their hands." (al-Fath, 48/10)

And like the statement of the Prophet Sallallâhu Alayhi wa Sallam,


«يَنْزِلُ رَبُّنَا كُلَّ لَيْلَةٍ إِلَى سَمَاءِ الدُّنْيَا»
"Our Rabb (Lord) does Nuzûl (descends) every night to the heaven of this world."3

And the Prophet Sallallâhu Alayhi wa Sallam's statement,


«قلب الْمُؤمن بَين إِصْبَعَيْنِ من أَصَابِع الرَّحْمَن»
"The heart of the believer is between two fingers from the Fingers of ar-Rahmân."4

What is your view regarding other textual proofs, which seemingly instills the delusion of Tashbîh (anthropomorphism)?

So benefit us with regards to the creed of Shaykh Muhammad bin Abd'il Wahhâb Rahimahullâhu Taâlâ regarding this. What is his view and what is your view after him?

Do you take whatever was narrated regarding this matter upon its apparent meaning while exalting Allâh from deficiencies?

Or do you make Ta'wîl (forceful interpretations)?

Do expound on this. Respond with a satisfying answer so that you may gain ample rewards. May the peace and blessings of Allâh be upon our master Muhammad, his family, and his companions.




3- Al-Bukhârî, Hadîth no. 1145, 6321, 7949; Muslim, Hadîth no. 758. The Hadîth is mass-transmitted. Ad-Dâraqutnî Rahimahullâhu Taâlâ authored the book an-Nuzûl regarding this Hadîth and its chain of narration. Ibnu Taymiyyah Rahimahullâhu Taâlâ authored the book Sharhu Hadîth'in Nuzûl in explanation of this Hadîth. Both books have been published. The books of Sunnah are not devoid of this Hadîth.

4- Muslim, Hadîth no. 2654.
"If the ignorant persists, gets haughty, is determined upon his transgression and misguidance, chooses blindness over guidance, and if what he falls into and disputes with regards to is Shirk Akbar (major Shirk) that brings the person who commits it out of the fold of the faction of Muslims to the party of polytheists, then in this case, the just verdict is the sword!"
