Abstract


Prompting Tafweed (thinking that only Allah knows what is meant by his Names and Attributes in the Holy Quran) is one of the Islamic schools. This school has been marred by several impurities in respect of the understanding of the reality of Tafweed. Some said that Tafweed is only in the knowledge of the how, while others said that Tafweed has to be in the knowledge of the how and meaning, which is termed as the absolute Tafweed. Because the absolute Tafweed is inconsistent with the Holy Quran’s call for understanding and pondering and with the Attributes of Allah and the purpose of sending Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon them), this research aims to clarify the meaning of Tafweed, its types and its risks. It also explains how prompting Tafweed contradicts the Holy Quran. As such, it becomes necessary to expose the risks of adopting this wrong concept and to explain why it is inconsistent with the Holy Quran.
