All praise is due to Allaah and may the prayers and salutations be upon His Final Messenger, to proceed:
Then we give glad tidings to all Hulooli and Mu'attil Jahmites, Aristotelian Metaphysicists, Kalam Atomists and all the deniers of there being a Lord above the Heaven and a Deity above the Throne of the following:
Know, O Jahmites, that Allaah the Most High said:
فَإِنْ آمَنُواْ بِمِثْلِ مَا آمَنتُم بِهِ فَقَدِ اهْتَدَواْ وَإِن تَوَلَّوْاْ فَإِنَّمَا هُمْ فِي شِقَاقٍ فَسَيَكْفِيكَهُمُ اللّهُ وَهُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ
So if they believe in the like of that which you believe, then they are rightly guided, but if they turn away, then they are only in opposition. So Allaah will suffice you against them. And He is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower. (Al-Baqarah 2:137)
And this verse is specific in its reason for revelation but general and applicable in all times in its meaning.
So bear witness that we have believed as the Prophet and the Companions have believed - and they are the ones referred to in the verse, since the verb "aamantum" is addressed to them, - that Allaah Himself is above the heaven, above His Throne, and we do bear witness that what you believe, that Allaah is neither within the universe nor outside of it, nor above it, nor below it is a belief based upon what you have inherited from the Metaphysics of the pagan Greek Philosophers and the pagan pseudo-Sabean Harranians, and it is not what the Prophet or the Companions believed or expressed, ever.
And we have nothing but the Book, the Sunnah, the Companions and the entirety of the Salaf, and you will see what they have said, and then it will become known whether the Prophet and his Companions ever spoke with the necessities of that Greek Metaphysics, (astronomy), and philosophy which corrupted the deen of the Sabeans and turned them into star-worshippers - that same Greek Metaphysics upon the basis of which Jahm bin Safwaan denied there is a Lord above the heaven and ended upon worshipping non-existence, and of whose ta'teel all factions have their share (the Mu'tazilah, Kullaabiyyah, Ash'ariyyah, Maturidiyyah).
And you should also know that Allaah will certainly suffice the followers of His Book and of His Prophet and of His Companions against you:
So how can all of these whom you have followed in truth in your speech about Allaah be more knowledgeable of Allaah than the Inheritors of the Prophets, and the people of the Qur'aan and Emaan? This is the question O Jahmites that you will be forced to answer sooner or later. Go visit: AboveTheThrone.Com.
