Submitting to the texts regarding knowledge of Allaah and His Attributes

So what is obligatory is to submit to what occurs in the Book and in the Sunnah with regard to the Names of Allaah and His Attributes as was meant by Allaah and His Messenger, because Allaah knows best about Himself, He the Perfect and Most High, and He knows best about other than Himself.  And the most knowledgeable one from the creation about Allaah is the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam.  As for us, then our knowledge falls short.  There are many things that we do not know related to our own selves with regard to the details of our bodies and the veins and the senses.  There are things which we do not know.  Do you know the rooh, about the soul?  What exactly is it?  The intellect, what is it?  If you do not know something from your own body, nor something about your own self, then how can you speak about the Self of Allaah the Perfect and Most High, which is not known, except to Him, He, the Perfect.     

(یَعۡلَمُ مَا بَیۡنَ أَیۡدِیهِمۡ وَمَا خَلۡفَهُمۡ وَلَا یُحِیطُونَ بِهِۦ عِلۡمࣰا)

(Explanation)

He (Allaah) knows whatever is in front of them and whatever is behind them and they do not encompass Him with knowledge

The Beliefs of Ahl-us-Sunnah (Sh Uthaymeen)

From the Foreward by Sh ibn Baaz rahimahullaah:

All praise is due to Allaah alone, and may He extol and send perfect peace and security on the final Prophet and upon his family and his Companions. To proceed:

So I came across this valuable concise creed, which our brother the great scholar, the noble shaikh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen compiled. I listened to all of it and found that it comprises an explanation of the creed of Ahl-us-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah in the topic of the Oneness of Allaah and His Names and Attributes, and in the topics of belief in the Angels, the Books, the Messenger, the Last Day and in Pre-decree, its good and its bad.

And he has excelled in gathering these beneficial topics together, and he has mentioned what every student of knowledge and every Muslim needs to know regarding their belief in Allaah, His Angels, His Books, His Messengers, in the Last Day and in Pre-decree, its good and its bad. And he has included numerous beneficial points which you may not find in many of the books and treatises on ‘aqeedah. So may Allaah reward him with good, and may He increase him in knowledge and guidance, and may He bring about benefit through this book and all of his writings. And may He make us and him, and all of our brothers rightly guided guides and callers to Allaah upon clear knowledge. Indeed He is All-Hearing and Near.

Dictated by the one who is poor and in need of Allaah the Most High – ‘Abdul-‘Aziz ibn ‘Abdullaah ibn Baaz, may Allaah forgive him. And may Allaah extol and send perfect peace and security on our Messenger Muhammad and his family and his Companions.
