Allah is not reached by people’s conjecture nor can He be grasped by their understanding – Shaykh Fawzan | Dawud Burbank [Short Clip|En]

Aqeedah Tahaawiyyah : Lesson 05

 لا تبلغه الأوهام ولا تدركه الأفهام‏

[9]  He is not reached by people’s conjecture nor can He be grasped by their understanding.  


The Explanation – Point [9]

So, Allaah the One free of all imperfections and the Most High, cannot be encompassed; so Allaah is greater than everything, He the Perfect and Most High.

He (Allaah) knows whatever is in front of them and whatever is behind them and they do not comprehend Him with knowledge (Soorah TaaHaa (20), aayah 110)

So Allaah the One free of all imperfections, He is known; however, He is not comprehended and encompassed by that (their knowledge).  So, Allaah is greater than everything, so thoughts cannot imagine Him and it is not permissible for a person to say about Allaah except what He the Perfect said about Himself or what His Messenger `alayhissalaatu was-salaam said about Him.
