Ask A Question About Islam And Muslims
Is it the case that the Imams are present everywhere and they are watching us at every moment? If so, are we not giving them attributes that are reserved for Allah?
Allah, The Glorious is everywhere and He sees everything every moment as we believe and read in Quran (He is with you where you may be) Sura 57, Verse 4.
'The Prophet Muhammad and his successors are granted knowledge by Allah as and when Allah wants. Their knowledge is gifted to them by Allah. Allah's knowledge is His own and never given to Him.
Infallible Imams are the most humble servants of Allah after the Prophet (SAWA).
To my understanding Allah is not a person who does things, rather things happen naturally as a result of our deeds, such as an upset stomach caused by infected food. Is this a correct view?
1. Your opinion needs to be revised to be compatible with Quran and authentic Hadeeth.
3. Allah said in Qur'an: Every good deed will result in good and every bad deed will result in bad.
4. Allah does not need to do things himself but Has angles to implement and the whole creatures to follow His orders and system.
Can you explain what is Wajibul Wajood, absolute existence and necessary existence? Can I get to know essential qualities of the eternal being?
Thank you for your question. Wajib al-wujud or the Necessary Existent is that existent which does not depend on any other existent for its existence. The Absolute Existent is that existent that has no limitation what so ever. These attributes and others are discussed in transcendental philosophy and mysticism.
May you always be successful
What is the logical reasoning that Allah always speaks the truth? Can you also recommend some books that explain the attributes of Allah with logical explanations?
May Allah bless you and your family
Lying – that is, not speaking the truth – is an evil trait. If God were to lie, then God would be a liar; that would mean that God committed an evil act. But God cannot commit an evil act because evil arises from ignorance or a need to deceive; in other words, evil arises from a need. Since God knows all things and has no need of anything, God does not commit evil. Thus, God does not lie and He is Truthful (al-Ṣādiq).
