The Qur’anic phrase ‘Laysa ka mithlihi shay’un’, is in fact doing an extreme disassociation of Allah from anything created – not only images, but also from base thoughts, etc. because at the end, the reality based on other than Allah cannot properly represent Allah.

(As mentioned): The issue of…

(As mentioned): The issue of the first creation – pen, tablet, water or the Prophet (ﷺ) – is in fact probabilistic. We state our position while knowing there is a legitimate difference of opinion.

One should see the Prophet…

One should see the Prophet (ﷺ) with the spiritual eye, with Baseerah (penetrating insight), otherwise it will be like the disbelievers among the Quraysh and their vile calling the Prophet (ﷺ) as ‘Mudhamdham’ or ‘Ibn Abi Kabsha’.

We know the difference between people of the Dunya and those of the Akhira in how they present their worldly problems. One shows them as huge, but the others show them as very small since they know Allah is the goal and He is in control of their problems.

(As mentioned): In the process of Wudhu’, we can become conscious of who we are, so that we know our weaknesses and sins, and subsequently Allah’s total Power over us.
