  1. Salam, Does Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) consider some other then Him as khaliq and raziq? As per our belief, He is "Al-Khaliq" & "Ar-Raziq", so why there are asma e ilahiya like "Ahsan ul Khaleen" and "Khayr ur Raziqeen" and "Arham ur Rahimeen" which shows multiplicity instead of oneness?
  2. Well done, keep reminding Surah Adh-Dhariyat, Verse 55: وَذَكِّرْ فَإِنَّ الذِّكْرَىٰ تَنفَعُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ And continue to remind, for surely the reminder profits the believers. (English - Shakir)
  3. If so, then how can rizq "distrubuted" by them is supposed to be provided by them? The term "rizq" has many forms/shapes, it is not limited to the food we eat. Hikmah is also a form of rizq, tazkiya is also a form of rizq, knowledge is a form of rizq, sabr, thabat etc too are rizq in my point of view. Keeping this in mind, see the following verse: Surah Al-Jumua, Verse 2: هُوَ الَّذِي بَعَثَ فِي الْأُمِّيِّينَ رَسُولًا مِّنْهُمْ يَتْلُو عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتِهِ وَيُزَكِّيهِمْ وَيُعَلِّمُهُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَإِن كَانُوا مِن قَبْلُ لَفِي ضَلَالٍ مُّبِينٍ He it is Who raised among the inhabitants of Mecca an Apostle from among themselves, who recites to them His communications and purifies them, and teaches them the Book and the Wisdom, although they were before certainly in clear error, (English - Shakir)
  4. Like you are turning the matter into a shirky thing Yet He has commanded us to follow & obey him in true letter & spirit. This is yet another example of "Wasilah".
  5. The question of dependence becomes useless when one already knows that whatever is in the heavens & Earth & beyond them is dependent on One & Only Being which is "As-Samad, Al-Haye ul Qaiyyum". Saying Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has deputed so & so for distribution of something or for doing any specific task cannot be a matter of shirk. So how can the statement that "Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has made my boss the wasilah for fulfilling my needs" becomes the statement of shirk? However, on the other hand, turning eyes from the wasilah made by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) do have serious consequences. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is Al-Raziq, but He has used for Himself names like "Khayr-ur-Raziqeen" why? Consider the example of a mother who feed her neonate. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has made her the wasilah & hence made obligatory on us to offer thanks to her too while in fact it is Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) who has provided the rizq for us through her.
  6. Lets see one more sunnat of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), when He grants someone kingdom, He grants it with full rights as mentioned in the case of Prophet Suleman (عليه السلام): Surah Suad, Verse 39: هَٰذَا عَطَاؤُنَا فَامْنُنْ أَوْ أَمْسِكْ بِغَيْرِ حِسَابٍ This is Our free gift, therefore give freely or withhold, without reckoning. (English - Shakir) As long as one believes that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is the One & Only "As-Samad", there is no shirk in his life. The Giver (Al-Mo'tee) is One and everyone else is a receiver or begger (Sa'il) before Him.
  7. Again, why are you turning your eyes from His "Junood"? Yes, angel of death takes the souls and angels takes the souls. These are among the "junood" of my Lord the Almighty. And we believe in them: Surah An-Nisa, Verse 136: يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا آمِنُوا بِاللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ وَالْكِتَابِ الَّذِي نَزَّلَ عَلَىٰ رَسُولِهِ وَالْكِتَابِ الَّذِي أَنزَلَ مِن قَبْلُ وَمَن يَكْفُرْ بِاللَّهِ وَمَلَائِكَتِهِ وَكُتُبِهِ وَرُسُلِهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ فَقَدْ ضَلَّ ضَلَالًا بَعِيدًا O you who believe! believe in Allah and His Apostle and the Book which He has revealed to His Apostle and the Book which He revealed before; and whoever disbelieves in Allah and His angels and His apostles and the last day, he indeed strays off into a remote error. (English - Shakir)
  8. Before saying anything about the Being whom you cannot comprehend, I would like you to view few more verses of Qur'an Al-Hakeem. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is Malik ul Mulk, He is the Creator, the Raziq. Do you want to say with full confidence that He cannot appoint anyone from His "Junood" for the distribution of Rizq? Do you claim to know the junood of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) while He has said this: وَمَا يَعْلَمُ جُنُودَ رَبِّكَ إِلَّا هُوَ 74:31 Have you seen the following verses: Surah An-Nisa, Verse 54: أَمْ يَحْسُدُونَ النَّاسَ عَلَىٰ مَا آتَاهُمُ اللَّهُ مِن فَضْلِهِ فَقَدْ آتَيْنَا آلَ إِبْرَاهِيمَ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَآتَيْنَاهُم مُّلْكًا عَظِيمًا Or do they envy the people for what Allah has given them of His grace? But indeed We have given to Ibrahim's children the Book and the wisdom, and We have given them a grand kingdom. (English - Shakir) So He has given the Aal-e-Ibrahim, "Mulkan Azeema" and has not given them the right to use or distribute "haqq e tasarruf"? There is another verse which mentions "Mulkan Kabeera": Surah Al-Insan, Verse 20: وَإِذَا رَأَيْتَ ثَمَّ رَأَيْتَ نَعِيمًا وَمُلْكًا كَبِيرًا And when you see there, you shall see blessings and a great kingdom. (English - Shakir) Please don't try to impose limits on God, He do what He will. It is the sunnat of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) that He makes wasilah and He has commanded us to approach Him through wasilah. We have seen in Qur'an that He has send down rizq from heavens upon the request of His chosen ones. Hence He made Prophet Musa (عليه السلام) & Essa (عليه السلام) wasilah for granting sustenance to Bani Isra'il (Munna wa Salwa & Ma'ida were sent down). Do you really continue to confine the greatness of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)?
  9. Lets make it simple by viewing the quoted verse once again: Surah Suad, Verse 75: قَالَ يَا إِبْلِيسُ مَا مَنَعَكَ أَن تَسْجُدَ لِمَا خَلَقْتُ بِيَدَيَّ أَسْتَكْبَرْتَ أَمْ كُنتَ مِنَ الْعَالِينَ He said: O Iblis! what prevented you that you should do obeisance to him whom I created with My two hands? Are you proud or are you of the exalted ones? (English - Shakir) Now here is the test, this is the discussion between the creator & the created. The created disobeying the command of creator and giving his excuse of disobedience in next verse: Surah Suad, Verse 76: قَالَ أَنَا خَيْرٌ مِّنْهُ خَلَقْتَنِي مِن نَّارٍ وَخَلَقْتَهُ مِن طِينٍ He said: I am better than he; Thou hast created me of fire, and him Thou didst create of dust. (English - Shakir)
  10. I can only hope! And in that sense I just wanted to keep husn e dhan for you. The phrase "Imma shakiran wa imma kafoora" is also referring to an act of God.
  11. Not only he but Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) also mentioned it in several places in Qur'an: Surah Al-Qamar, Verse 1: اقْتَرَبَتِ السَّاعَةُ وَانشَقَّ الْقَمَرُ The hour drew nigh and the moon did rend asunder. (English - Shakir) Surah Muhammad, Verse 18: فَهَلْ يَنظُرُونَ إِلَّا السَّاعَةَ أَن تَأْتِيَهُم بَغْتَةً فَقَدْ جَاءَ أَشْرَاطُهَا فَأَنَّىٰ لَهُمْ إِذَا جَاءَتْهُمْ ذِكْرَاهُمْ Do they then wait for aught but the hour that it should come to them all of a sudden? Now indeed the tokens of it have (already) come, but how shall they have their reminder when it comes on them? (English - Shakir)
  12. La howla wala quwwata illa billah How can I disagree with haqq? Just wanted to know whether your concept of tawheed e af'Ali is based on jabr or is there any space of "imma shakiran wa imma kafoora".
  13. Please elaborate, Iblis not prostrating before Adam (عليه السلام) was act of whom? Surah Suad, Verse 75: قَالَ يَا إِبْلِيسُ مَا مَنَعَكَ أَن تَسْجُدَ لِمَا خَلَقْتُ بِيَدَيَّ أَسْتَكْبَرْتَ أَمْ كُنتَ مِنَ الْعَالِينَ He said: O Iblis! what prevented you that you should do obeisance to him whom I created with My two hands? Are you proud or are you of the exalted ones? (English - Shakir)
  14. What has been said earlier, was sufficient for showing the absurdity of his arguments.
  15. "Like Him there is nothing". In fact there is just God. Surah An-Noor, Verse 35: اللَّهُ نُورُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ مَثَلُ نُورِهِ كَمِشْكَاةٍ فِيهَا مِصْبَاحٌ الْمِصْبَاحُ فِي زُجَاجَةٍ الزُّجَاجَةُ كَأَنَّهَا كَوْكَبٌ دُرِّيٌّ يُوقَدُ مِن شَجَرَةٍ مُّبَارَكَةٍ زَيْتُونَةٍ لَّا شَرْقِيَّةٍ وَلَا غَرْبِيَّةٍ يَكَادُ زَيْتُهَا يُضِيءُ وَلَوْ لَمْ تَمْسَسْهُ نَارٌ نُّورٌ عَلَىٰ نُورٍ يَهْدِي اللَّهُ لِنُورِهِ مَن يَشَاءُ وَيَضْرِبُ اللَّهُ الْأَمْثَالَ لِلنَّاسِ وَاللَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ Allah is the light of the heavens and the Earth; a likeness of His light is as a niche in which is a lamp, the lamp is in a glass, (and) the glass is as it were a brightly shining star, lit from a blessed olive-tree, neither eastern nor western, the oil whereof almost gives light though fire touch it not-- light upon light-- Allah guides to His light whom He pleases, and Allah sets forth parables for men, and Allah is Cognizant of all things. (English - Shakir)
