May or May Not (RT 29/7/07)

Risalah Tauhid 29 July 2007

Mustahil 'Aqli also is divided into "dhoruri" (simple) and "nazhori" (complex).

It is common sense to say it is mustahil 1 is half of 3. On the other hand, it is complex to establish that mustahil for Allah to have partner or associate.

Likewise, Ja'iz 'Aqli also is divided into "dhoruri" and "nazhori".

If somebody says sometimes he stands still, and other times he moves about; we say - of course that is possible (dhoruri).

Consider this statement: "It is possible that Allah decides not to reward somebody who performs his religious duty regularly."
This is Ja'iz Aqli Nazhori since what we commonly understand is that Allah gives reward for those who perform good deeds. To establish that Allah may or may not reward, we have to start a lengthy discussion with scholars.

Commented Ustaz Zakaria: After looking at dalils (quranic and hadith proofs), scholars have agreed that it is up to Allah to reward or to not reward whoever he wishes.

Wallahu a'lam
