Q 7: If people
adhering to Al-Asha`iri school die before Tawhid-ul-Asma' wal-Sifat (Oneness of Allah's Names and Attributes) reaches them,
for they had never heard of or understood this Tawhid and no one warned them of Al-Asha`iri school so that they can deny it. They admit Tawhid-ul-Rububiyyah (Oneness of Allah's Lordship) and Tawhid-ul-Uluhiyyah (Oneness of Worship). What is the ruling on them and are they excused or not?
The followers of Al-Asha`iri school are not disbelievers, rather they erred in Ta'wil (allegorical interpretation) of some Allah's attributes. Therefore, their affair rests with Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He).May Allah grant us success. May Peace and blessings of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions!
