Don't speak about ALLAH without 'Ilm - Ibn Qayyim



Al-Imaam Ibnul-Qayyim said:
 
“And indeed Allaah -Subhaanahu - prohibited speaking about Him without knowledge in giving fatwaa and issuing judicial rulings, and He made it from the greatest of the muharramaat (the prohibited matters). Rather He placed it in the highest level from them. So He said- Ta'aala :
 
قُلْ إِنَّمَا حَرَّمَ رَبِّيَ الفَوَاحِشَ مَا ظَهَرَ مِنْهَاوَمَا بَطَنَ وَالإِثْمَ وَالْبَغْيَ بِغَيْرِ الحَقِّ وَأَن تُشْرِكُوا بِاللَّهِ مَا لَمْ يُنَزِّلْ بِهِ سُلْطَاناً وَأَن تَقُولُوا عَلَى اللَّهِ مَا لاَ تَعْلَمُونَ (33)

 
“Say (O Muhammad): "(But) indeed the things that my Lord has forbidden are al-Fawaahish (lewd, evil sins of every kind) whether committed openly or secretly, al-Ithm (sins of all kinds), ath-Thulm (unrighteous oppression), joining partners (in worship) with Allaah for which He has sent down no authority for, and that you speak about Allaah that which you have no knowledge of." [al-A'raaf (7):33]
 
So He arranged the muharramaat in four levels, and He began with the least of them, and it is al-Fawaahish (lewd, evil sins of every kind) then secondly He followed with what is more severe than it in prohibition and it is al-Ithm (sins of all kinds) and ath-Thulm (unrighteous oppression), then mentioned thirdly what is greater than them in prohibition and it is shirk with Him - Subhaanahu . Then He followed fourthly with what is more severe in prohibition than all of that, and it is speaking about Him without knowledge. And this is general to speaking about Him -Subhaanahu - without knowledge in His Asmaa’ was-Sifaat (Beautiful Names and Perfect Attributes) and His Af’aal (Actions), His Deen, and His Shar’ (legislation)…”
