Explanation of The Aqidah of The Two Imams Abū Zur’ah ar-Râzî & Abū Ḥâtim ar-Râzî (Part 3)

[2] The Qur’an is Allah’s speech, uncreated in all of its aspects.


Imam Abu ‘Uthmaan Ismaa’eel bin ‘Abd al-Rahmaan al-Saabooni (d. 449) said: “The People of Narrations testify and believe that the Quran is Allah’s Speech, His book, His address [to His slaves], His inspiration, and His revelation [which is] not created.

The one who say that it is created and believes in that; he is [considered] a disbeliever with them. The Quran is the Speech of Allah and His revelation; it is which Jibreel (as) who brought it down upon the Messenger (pbuh) as the Arabic Quran, to a people who possesses understanding, [a message containing] glad-tiding and warning, as Allah, the Glorified said,

“And truly this, [the Quran] is a revelation of the Lord of the Alameen. Which the trustworthy Sprit [Jibreel] has brought down upon your heart [O Mohammad] that you may be [one] of the warners. In the plain Arabic language.” [1]

He (sallallahu alayhi was sallam) conveyed it to his nation as he was commanded to do so, [due to] His saying: “O Messenger [Muhammad]! Proclaim [the message] which has been sent down to you from your Lord…”

Allah also says: “And if any one of the polytheists seeks your protection, then grant him protection so that he may hear the Words of Allah.”

It is that which the hearts memorize, that which the tongues recite, and that which is written in the scriptures [masaahif], no matter how it may be read by its reader, pronounced by its pronouncer, or how it may be memorized by its memorizer. Whether it is recited or is written in the scriptures of people of Islam or in writing boards of the their youth or in anything other than it; all of this is the Speech of Allah, and it is the Quran itself, in which we say, – indeed it is not created – so whoever believes that it is created then he is a disbeliever in Allah, the Great.”[2]
