Allaah is not inside His creation

September 22, 2018

 

From Shaikh Zaid al-Madkhalee’s explanation of the Introduction of Ibn Abee Zaid al Qayrawanee (Awdaahul-Ma’aanee), p.26-27

(Translation follows)

:(السؤال: فسّر بعض المفسرين قوله ( سبحانه وتعالى

 ( اللهُ الصَّمَدُ )

 {الإخلاص:2}

بالذي لا جوف له, فهل هذا صحيح؟ وما وجه كونه صفة كمال لله ( عز وجل )؟

الجواب: هذا ذكره المفسّرون إذ قالوا: الصمد الذي لا جوف له,

أي أنّ الله – تبارك وتعالى – ليس فيه أحد من مخلوقاته

ولا هو في شيء من مخلوقاته, فهو صفة مدح لا شكّ في ذلك,

والله أعلم.

 

Question: Some of the scholars explain His (سبحانه وتعالى) statement:

“Allaahus-Samad” (al-Ikhlaas 112:2)

They explain this statement to mean, “He has no ‘jawf’” – is this correct?  And do they mean this as a description of Allaah’s perfection (عز وجل)?

 

Answer by Shaikh Zaid al-Madkhalee (رحمه الله): This is what the scholars mention when they say, “As-Samad is the one who has no ‘jawf’.”  This means that Allaah (تَبَارَكَ وَتَعَالَى) – no one from His creation is in Him and He is not inside any of His creation.  So without a doubt, this is a praiseworthy description.”
