From Sharhu Sunnah – Imam Barbaharee:
Point No # 16 : Concerning The Speech of Allaah And Questioning the Attributes:
No one says about the attributes of the Lord, theMost High, ‘Why?’ except one who doubts about Allaah, the Blessed and Most High. The Qur’aan is the Speech of Allaah, His Revelation and Light. It is not created, since the Qur’aan is from Allaah and that which is from Allaah is not created. This was whatMaalik ibn Anas, Ahmad ibn Hanbal and the Scholars before and after them said and debating about it is disbelief.
1. The Qur’aan is the Speech of Allaah, hence it is an attribute of Allaah. All of Allaah’s attributes have been with Him eternally. Imaam Maalik said, “The Qur’aan is the speech of Allaah. It is not created.” Reported by al-Laalikaa’ee in Sharh Usool I’tiqaad Ahl is-Sunnah (no.414).
Imaam Ahmad ibn Hanbal was asked about the one who says that the Qur’aan was created, so he said, “(He is) a disbeliever.” Reported by al-Laalikaa’ee in Sharh Usool I’tiqaad Ahl is-Sunnah (no.449).
