Almighty Al’laah Is Free From All Defects


It is the belief of the Ahle Sunnat wa Jama’at that  Almighty Al’lah does not lie and He does not possess the power of telling a lie. Al’lah is free from all defects and those things which lead to defects. Almighty Al’lah says in the Holy Quráan,


“And whose word is more truthful than that of Al’laah?” [Surah Nisa Verse.122]

“And whose word is more truthful than the word of Al’laah.” [Surah Nisa Verse.87]

Imam-ul-Mufas’sireen, Imam Fakhrudeen Raazi (radiAllahu Anhu) states:

“It is not permissible for any Muslim to even think that Al’laah can tell a lie. Actually to even think such a thought removes one from the folds of Imaan.” [Tafseer Kabeer Vol.5 – Pg.179]

He further mentions:

“To be truthful is from amongst the Attributes of Al’laah. The evidence for this is that to tell a lie is a defect for Al’laah and for Al’laah to have any defect is Muhaal (Totally impossible)” [Tafseer Kabeer Vol.4 – Pg.138]


Umdatul Mufasireen Imaam Abdur Rahmaan Baidhawi (radiAllahu Anhu) states:

“A lie cannot find any place in the Message of Al’laah, as it is a defect and to have a defect Muhaal for Al’laah.” [Tafseer Baidhawi Pg.150]


Zubdatul Mufas’sireen Allama Ali bin Muhammad Khaazin states:

“(The point to be mentioned) is the fact that there is none more truthful than Al’laah and He does not go against His Word and it is totally impossible for Al’laah to lie” [Tafseer Khaazin Vol.1 – Pg. 421]
Allama Khateeb Muhammad bin Sharbeeni (Alaihir Rahma) states:

“The above command of Almighty Al’laah is sufficient evidence that it is Muhaal (totally impossible) for there to be a lie in the Message of Al’laah.” [Tafseer Sirajum Muneer Vol.1 – Pg.73]
Allama Muhammad bin Abdullah Tamrtaashi (radiAllahu Anhu) states:

“To say that Al’laah has the ability of tyranny, lies and ignorance is totally incorrect as it is an impossibility. The reason for this is because that which is Muhaal (totally impossible) cannot be accepted to be within the power of Almighty Al’laah. [eg. the creation of another Al’laah which is definitely Muhaal] and according to the
Mu’tazillas (another corrupt sect – firqa), He has the power but does not do so (Al’laah forbid”) [Tanweer ul Absaar]
It is in Fatawa Alamgiri:

“Any person who says Al’laah to possess a certain attribute which is
not worthy of His Being, 

or says Al’laah Ta’aala to be weary or to have some weakness, then
such a person committed kaafir.” [Fatawa Alamgiri Vol.2 – Pg.258]


Allama Muhammad bin Ali Qaari (Alaihir Rahma) states:

“One must not think that Al’laah has power over tyranny since this is Muhaal for Al’laah and that which is Muhaal is not under the Qudrat (Power) of Al’laah. The Mu’tazillas however believes that Al’laah has this power and does not do it.” [Sharah Fiqh Akbar]

Note: This belief of the Mu’tazillas is absolutely corrupt and unacceptable.
Imam Rabbani Mujaddid Alf Thaani Sheikh Ahmad Sarhindi Faarooqi (radiAllahu Anhu)  states:

“That Most Exalted ONE (Al’laah) is free and pure from all defects, direction and limitations.” [Maktoobat Vol.1 -Page.314]
