Q 1: What is
the meaning of "Tasalsul Al-Hawadith (consecution of creations)"?
the Shaykh of Islam Ahmad ibn Taymiyyah
adopt this view? Some knowledge seekers told me this information while I believe that he (may Allah be merciful to him) said that the first thing Allah has created is the Throne, when asked whether the Throne or the pen were created first.
"Tasalsul Al-Hawadith" is one of the terms newly introduced by scholars of Scholastic theology by which they mean that the Actions of Allah must have a beginning and are not eternal. If they were as eternal as Allah, there would be many eternal things and this is impossible, since Allah Alone is Eternal. This is a false claim and an innovation in Islam. The Eternity of Allah's Actions and Attributes does not necessarily mean the multiplicity of eternal things, for Allah is Eternal with His Actions and Attributes and His Actions do not have a beginning, just like He does not have a beginning.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
