All praise is due to Allaah, may prayers and salutations be upon His Messenger, to proceed:
The Jahmites have recently attempted to argue for their creed that the Qur'aan is created (a view they conceal in private - but dare not reveal in public) - however they have tried to cause some confusion by playing around with the words "Muhdath", "haadith", "Hudooth" and bringing some narrations from the Salaf which they have wrongly thought are for them when they are in fact a summary judgment against them and their disbelief - for the Jahmites were always a dumb and disgraced people, with little understanding. So inshaa'Allaah we are going to deal with some of their shubuhaat (doubts) that they have brought in order to argue for the deen of the Jahmiyyah and Mu'tazilah that the Qur'an is created - whilst making an open display of piety and righteousness with the claim of following the way of the Salaf.
We will bring many articles on this subject as it is a detailed and sometimes complicated issue, and it is for this reason the Jahmites are able to cause confusion. However, the Salaf were wise to them, knew their rat-holes and their secret hideouts, and were able to clean them out, often with a single sweep of the pen.
So from those statements of the Salaf that expose these opportune people trying to be clever in the 21st century, is the saying of at-Tabari, who over 1100 years ago supplicated against them, for their humiliation, for them to be cursed, exposed and disgraced - and indeed this has been and is their legacy walillaahil-hamd.
Ibn Jareer at-Tabaree (d. 310H) Cleaning Out the Secret Hideouts of the Jahmite Ash'aris
We have a lot more to say on this issue, for indeed there is in the speech of the Salaf what exposes these Ash'aris as none other than the tail-ends of the Jahmites and Mu'tazilites, and who are nothing but plagiarizers of the creed of Ibn Kullaab al-Qattaan al-Basri (d. 240H). For now, lets leave it to Ibn Jareer (rahimahullaah), through al-Laalikaa'ee (1/206-207):
The Creed of Abu Ja'far Muhammad bin Jareer at-Tabari
At-Tabari, walillaahil-hamd has cleaned out the rat-holes of the Jahmites with these concise words, may Allah have mercy upon him - and inshaa'Allaah we will be developing this issue in more detail in order to address a lot of the doubts that the Jahmites are spreading these days, including the issue of "Hudooth" and "Muhdath" and "haadith" that they are bringing - for all of those narrations they are bringing are actually in refutation and takfeer of them and not in relation to those who affirm Allaah has actions tied to His will and power - indeed the Jahmites are a disgraced, humiliated, forsaken people, as they always were - and this is why they wander blindly in the valleys and pits, thinking they are upon guidance, blind to it.
