Salam, Imam Ali says in the first sermon of Nahj al-Balagha that God doesn't have any attributes. Imam Reza reiterates this in Sheikh Saduq's al-Tawhid. Shia Islamic scholars have interpreted this as meaning that all the traditional attributes of God (e.g. omniscience, omnipotence, etc.) are identical with God and are not distinct or "accidental properties" of God. But this creates the problem of mercy and freedom. If mercy is an essential property of God, and not an "accidental property," then that means God must be merciful (or else He wouldn't be God anymore). This seems to contradict with the Shia Islamic traditions which say that God "chose" mercy for Himself (i.e. He could have not been merciful, but He chose to be merciful). This also makes the whole concept of thanking God meaningless, because he had to be merciful to us all the time because reality couldn't have been otherwise (he's a Necessary Being, couldn't have not existed, and couldn't have not been merciful). Why thank God for being merciful to us when things simply could not have been otherwise? It was not possible for God to have not been merciful to us, so why should we thank him for being merciful to us? Unless there is a rational way to solve this problem, this problem demonstrates that the whole concept of a merciful, free, and "worthy of being grateful to" God is incoherent. And hence the Islamic concept of God is logically incoherent and should not be believed in.
Eid Milad un-Nabi Mubarak :D:D:D:D:D God blessed our world and universe today by sending our beloved Prophet (pbuh) down to us, a Mercy for all other creation. The bringer of our perfect religion that is, Islam. May God bless him & his pure ahlulbayt infinite times and may they be our interceder's. The walking of heavens grace upon this dirt.. ‘Realise that My Prophetic Messenger himself is with you’ (49:7) Made from the holy light that illuminates the worlds.. ‘He is Nur (Sacred Light)’ (5:15) This immaculate of creation was sent unto our world for one purpose.. ‘Brings people from the darkness to the Light’ (65:11) Showing us the desired conduct and moral discipline, to preach the perfect message.. The ‘Most examplary character’ (33:21) (68:4) ‘Established the correct Message of Islam’ (6:161-163) (39:11-12) Putting all faith and hope with his only Lord to worship and praise him alone.. ‘Worships only Allah’ (72:19-20) And ‘Puts total trust in Allah’ (9:129) Yet asking for no reward from the ever-lasting creator.. ‘Selflessly labours for Allah, asks for no reward’ (25:57) (42:23) Yet Allah showers down his mercy upon his beloved.. ‘Rewarded by Allah’ (68:3) (108:1) His honour and dignity already made perfect, ordered that nothing can disrespect.. ‘Believe, honour and respect him’ (48:9) (61:11) Then to send him abundant favours so that his prestige and nobility are only upheld.. ‘Allah only desires to keep away the uncleanness from you, O people of the House! and to purify you a (thorough) purifying.’ (33:33) Yet what use without love and obedience?.. ‘Love Allah and His Beloved Prophet more than anything else’ (9:24) ‘Follow the Commands of Allah and of His Beloved Prophet’ (33:36) Asalamu Alayka Ya RasulAllah ♥
