The Speech Of Allaah, Part 4 | If The Kalaam Of Allaah Is Without A Sound Then…

Quick Intro:

As was stated earlier in part one from the series of “The Speech Of Allaah”, this was supposed to be a refutation of the Ash’arees from the story of Ibraheem and Moosaa. However I will now prolong these (what was first planned to be a four part series) to a 7 or 8 part series in shaa Allaah.

This post will just deal with some questions that need to be answered by those who claim that the kalaam (Speech) of Allaah is without a sound.

Before reading this post, it will be good to refresh your minds with the following posts of these series:

– Part One,  Proofs From The Qur’aan And Sunnah

– Part two, Proofs From The Salaf

– Part three, A ‘Proof’ And The Refutation Of The Ash’arees

To proceed;

If The Kalaam Of Allaah Is Without A Sound, Then…

If the kalaam of Allaah is without a sound, then what did Moosaa hear when Allaah spoke to him? If they respond that Allaah created a sound, and caused Moosaa to hear that created sound, then this means that this created object stated:

O Moosaa, Verily I am your Lord… Verily, I am Allaah, there is no god except me, so worship Me…” [20:12-14]

Therefore, if they state this, it implies that this created object claimed to be Allaah, and asked Moosaa to worship it!

However, if they state that it was the actual kalaam (Speech) of Allaah, then it must be asked, “How then did Moosaa hear it, if you claim that Allaah’s kalaam is without sound?

The scholars of the Ash’arees have not been able to provide a satisfactory response for this.

Two other point need to be mentioned;

(1) If the kalaam of Allaah is without a sound then what superiority to some prophets have over others? Allaah states:

These are the Messengers. Some of them We blessed (with a higher status) over others. Some of them Allaah spoke to…” [2:253]

(2) If the kalaam of Allaah is an ‘internal kalaam’, then what is the difference between it and the knowledge of Allaah?
