Speaking about Allāh without knowledge 

Question #331:

What is the ruling speaking about Allāh without having knowledge? Is the person who does this exit from Islam in all cases or is there any detail in this matter?

Answer :

Speaking about Allāh without having knowledge, it is from major sins. Allāh has said:

“Verily, those who invent lies against Allāh will never prosper.” An-Nahl : 116

[Few words from Shaykh’s speech is not clear]

“And follow not (O man i.e., say not, or do not or witness not, etc.) that of which you have no knowledge (e.g. ones saying: “I have seen,” while in fact he has not seen, or “I have heard,” while he has not heard). Verily! The hearing, and the sight, and the heart, of each of those you will be questioned (by Allāh). ” Al-Isrāʾ : 36
