Proofs From The Qur’aan:

The first aayah:

And to Allaah belongs the Most Beautiful Names, so call on Him by them, and leave the company of those who ilhaad (belie or deny or deviate away from) His Names. They will be requited for what they used to do…..” [7:180]

The second aayah:

 “There is nothing like Him, and He is the All-Hearing, the All-Seeing.” [42:11]

The third aayah:

And don’t peruse (say) that of which you have no knowledge (about).” [17:36]

The first aayah proves the obligation of ithbaat (affirmation) without making tahreef (change) or ta’teel (denial) because both of these are a form of ilhaad (deviation).

The second aayah proves the obligation of negating any form of tamtheel (likening) (1).

The third aayah proves the negation of any form of takyeef (asking ‘how’), as well as withholding and remaining silent in regards to whatever neither ithbaat (affirmation) nor nafee (negation) has been reported.
