Homework Help: religion

Posted by shahizah on Friday, June 1, 2012 at 6:31am.

In Sahih Muslim Book 001, Number 0248: Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said to me: they (the people) till constantly ask you, Abu Huraira, (about different things pertaining to religion) the they would say: Well, there is Allah, but after all who created Allah? He (Abu Huraira) narrated: Once we were in the mosque that some of the Bedouins came there and said: Well, there is Allah, but who created Allah? He (the narrator) said: I took hold of the pebbles in my fist and flung at them and remarked: Stand up, stand up (go away) my friend (the Holy Prophet) told the truth. There is no doubt that the Holy Prophet told the truth. But would it not be good to answer with hikmah the question “who created Allah” so that the questioner would understand & be convinced rather than giving the harsh treatment as narrated in the hadith above. I am sure there are many convincing, logical arguments & ways to answer this question. The understanding obtained would surely help to strengthen the questioner’s faith. Q16:125 “Invite to the Way of your Lord with hikmah & fair preaching & argue with them in a way that is better….” Would not the action of the sahabah potray a dogmatic view of Islam?"
