Can any Ummah (nation), however

Q 2: Is a person sinful when ascribing one of Allah's Attributes (Exalted be He) to another person whether old or young?


A: No one has the right to describe a creature with an attribute that is only entitled to Allah, such as the Creator, All-Provider, the Doer of whatsoever He wills and the like. Whereas there is no harm in describing a person's attributes that are shared among Allah and His creatures, such as the All-Hearer, All-Seer, All-Mighty and All-Powerful, provided that there must be belief that Allah's Attributes (Exalted be He) do not resemble those of His creatures in essence or meaning, even though they bear the same term and meaning. Ahl-ul-Sunnah wal-Jama`ah (those adhering to the Sunnah and the Muslim community), who are the Sahabah (Companions) of the Prophet (peace be upon him), and their followers have a consensus that arguing the Attributes is like arguing the Self (of Allah). Allah's Self (Exalted be He) is true but it is not similar to others. His Attributes are proven to Him in a way that befits Him and does not resemble any of His creation.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
