Views[edit]

In his work Ma La Budda Minhu,[7] Qadi Thanaullah emphasized that it is kufr (an act of unbelief) "to suppose that something other than Allah is the true creator of any part of creation". This applies to whatever a human being strives to build, create, or make happen, because it is actually not them but Allah who "creates that act and brings it into existence".[8]

The attributes of God, (his throne, his hand and face, presence in the hearts of believers, descent into the lowest heaven) mentioned in the

Quran and hadith must not be understood in their literal sense, and neither should we attempt to find interpretations (Ta'weel) for them. We should simply have faith in these things and ... we should entrust their interpretation to the knowledge of the Almighty. Man's lost in these matters ... is no more than ignorance and confusion."[8]

He believed that the Prophets and angels are ma'soom or divinely protected from wrongdoing, but not the Shaaba (companions of the prophets) or Ahl al-Bayt (family of Muhammad).[9] However to believe that the Shaaba did not get along is "to deny the Quran".[10]
