  1. If you mean by Himself, His Essence then Yes what Manifest is His attributes.
  2. Yes that is shirk. Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) is not His creation.
  3. Of course Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) creation is Manifestation of Him, because He created it. It is Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) who made potential of being to actual, thus we manifest His power. It is He (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) who manage everything with Life (Al-Hay), which is Power and Knowledge, and you can see it in this World. But we can never understand His Essence (God's whatness) because it is only know by Him.
  4. There can be two different existing with different attributes and they are not same, but what they have in one meaning is Existence, because they exist.

    Iraq and Iran did have same points but Iran win because of more goals. Anyway I wish Iran and Iraq will play in Finals.
  6. I recommend you to read this https://www.iqraonline.net/translations/bidayah-al-ḥikmah-commentary-study-guide/ --- The groups that believe the meaning of existence is equivocal largely rely on a proof that resorts to causality. They argue that all existences have a causal relationship with each other. For those who ascribe to the view that existence has a different meaning for each existent, they argue that every cause and effect have differing existences. Thus, when a cause brings an effect into existence, their existences differ and as such there are just as many meanings to existence as there are levels in the causal chain of all existence. As for the view that existence has one meaning for God and another for all other existents, this view has been espoused by the likes of Qāḍī Sa’īd Qumī.7 These sorts of scholars believe that we cannot understand things that are predicated to God. For example, if one says that “God is all-knowledgeable”, we can only really understand that God is not ignorant as we cannot conceive what it means to be all-knowledgeable. They argue that it would be incorrect for us to assume what it means to be all-knowledgeable as the Qur'an has said, [42:11] Nothing is like Him. According to them, the same goes for existence. We cannot conceive what it means for God to exist, all we can know is that He is not non-existent. Their evidence for this view also refers to causality. They argue that if existence had one meaning then God (a necessary existence) and all other existences (which are possible existences) would have some sort of homogeneity (sinkhīyyah) and such a thing is impossible. That is, nothing can be similar to God and as such, existence must have different meanings. The answer to this view (which ‘Allāmah has not mentioned in Nihāyah) is that not only is such a homogeneity (sinkhīyyah) possible, rather it is necessary for there to be a similarity. Ever cause and effect must have similarity. In fact, if there were not similarity, then a causal relationship would become impossible (this will be explained later). If someone claims that the meaning of God existing is different than that of possible existences existing, we will reply by asserting that when we say a thing other than God exists, it means that the thing is an existent. If existence has a different meaning for God, then we will ask what meaning it has. If it does not mean that God exists or that he is an existent, then it must mean that God does not exist. This is because existence and non-existence are opposites and for something to both not exist and exist at the same time would deny the law of the excluded middle. As such, claiming that the meaning of existence for God is different than the meaning of existence for anything other than God would result in the belief that God does not exist. However, no proponent of the view that existence is an equivocal term believes that God does not exist. Furthermore, if someone claims that we cannot understand the meaning of existence that is used for God then this will cause any possible understanding of God to go under question. That is, if we cannot prove God’s own existence than we cannot even discuss his qualities or progress any further in any discussion about him. As such, we would have to put a stop to rationality even though the intellect perceives that existence has one meaning that is the same when predicated to all existences.
  7. Not necessary black woman and Shia Muslim, but rather working in Iranian state-owned channel who criticise Israel and America, of course they will see her as threat or perhaps they are investigate her. Imagine she will go to Israel, same thing will happen for sure.

  9. Not His Essence, because only He knows It. Whatever Manifest can be understood by Intellect. So when I see power in front of me, it is God who is Most Powerful and it is He who make the power happen, so such a power Manifest His Power.
  10. What Manifest is His (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) Actions, Signs, Will, Attributes but not His Essence. God is Pure Existence and there is no definition for Existence. And we have the same Existence.
  11. “He is the First and the Last, the Manifest and the Hidden, and He is the Knower of all things.” (Qur’an, 57:3)
  12. Brother islam25 I agree with your statement and you are right. We actually have narrations to support them.

    The Age of Earth and Universe

    Interesting I did not noticed that, then my statement is false.
  14. Salaam Aleikum, I always find this fascinating when it comes to six days: Indeed, your Lord is Allah, who created the heavens and earth in six days and then established Himself above the Throne. He covers the night with the day, [another night] chasing it rapidly; and [He created] the sun, the moon, and the stars, subjected by His command. Unquestionably, His is the creation and the command; blessed is Allah, Lord of the worlds. 7:54 Say, "Do you indeed disbelieve in He who created the earth in two days and attribute to Him equals? That is the Lord of the worlds." 41:9 Earth age is around 4,543 billion so 4,543 billion divided to two we get the one day period which is 2.2715 billion. 6 days times 2.2715 billion is around 13.629 billion and that is near the Universe Age which is around 13.799 billion.
