The Guidance of Muhammad Peace be upon him
Among The Biggest Misguidance Is The Blasphemy Of The Mu^tazilah’s Saying “The Human Creates His Actions”
Among the biggest misguidance is the blasphemy of The Mu^tazilah’s saying “the human creates his actions”, they have contradicted the verse
الله خالق كل شيء
Surah Az-zumar Verse 62 means Allāh is The Creator of everything.
The saying of The Mu^tazilah is blasphemy and it states that what the human does voluntarily is not by Allāh’s will and power. According to their claim, only what the human does involuntarily is by Allāh’s will.
The people of truth believe that the actions of all the creation are created by Allāh and acquired by the creations. The Mu^tazilah contradicted this and exited from the creed of Ahlus-sunnah Wal Jamā^ah among the companions and those who followed them correctly.
The Imām Abu Ja^far At–tahawiyy says: The actions of the creations occur by the creating of Allāh and it is acquired by the creations and this is among what Ahlus-sunnah Wal Jamā^ah have unanimously agreed upon from the time of the companions up to his era. He is not speaking about his personal opinion, rather, he is talking about the creed of the nation from the companions and those who followed them correctly and not those who strayed from them. The majority of the muslim nation is upon what the companions were upon. The muslims from the nation of Prophet Muhammad will always have the same creed until Judgment Day.
The majority of the people who claim that they are muslims believe that Allāh, The Exalted, is The Creator of everything, from the movements of the creations and their stillness and their bodies. Every entity that enters into existence is by Allāh’s creating.
Those Mu^utazilah ended up belying the Qur’ān, they belied several verses like the verse
قل الله خالق كل شيء
which means say O Muhammad: Allāh is The Creator of everything. “Everything” in this verse includes the movements and stillness and the entities. “Everything” in this verse is not restricted to only the entities. Doesn’t a person say I did something?! Action, movement, and stillness is something. A thing is not just an entity only, to the extent that it is said both linguistically and religiously: “I intend something.” It is valid linguistically and religiously to say “I intend something.” So then, the intention is something and it is among the actions of the heart. Therefore, by precedence, the apparent actions, movements, and stillness are “things.” The verse,
قل الله خالق كل شيء
which means “Say O Muhammad: Allah is The Creator of everything, includes the movements and the stillness which occur from the creations which are acquired by the creations and are created by Allāh. The actions are created by Allāh.
A more explicit verse than that is the verse
هل من خالق غير الله
which means There is no creator except Allāh. The verse doesn’1t say there is no creator of entities except Allāh, rather, is says there is no creator except Allāh and that includes movements and stillness and entities. All of that is created by Allāh, therefore, the truth is with Ahlus-sunnah Wal Jamā^ah.
