Do not dispute with Him!

Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

When it comes to Allah Almighty, the name “Al-Jabbār” is that of praise and perfection. But when people are described by this name or attribute, it mostly denotes dispraise, imperfection, and defects. Do we not see that the so - called compellers among people can actually be hurt by the weakest of things, like bugs and worms, get distracted by flies, and become agitated by hunger and lazy when full?!

Hence, the messengers warned their people against the attributes of “tyranny and arrogance” without right. Allah Almighty says:

{And  when you strike, you strike as tyrants.}

[Surat ash-Shu‘arā’: 130]

Whoever acts tyrannically, Allah puts a seal upon his heart: 

{...Thus does Allah seal over every heart of an arrogant tyrant.} 

[Surat Ghāfir: 35]

Allah Almighty threatens tyrants with punishment: 

{And they requested victory from Allah, and disappointed, [therefore], was every obstinate tyrant. Before him is Hell, and he will be given a drink of purulent water.} 

[Surat Ibrāhim: 15-16]

The Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) said:

“A neck will come out of Hellfire on the Day of Judgment. It will have two eyes which can see, two ears which can hear, and a tongue which can speak. It will say: ‘I have been left in charge of three: Every obstinate tyrant, every one who called upon a deity besides  Allah, and the image makers.’”

[Narrated by Al -Tirmidhi; Sahīh (authentic)]

The Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) is also authentically reported to have said:

“Hellfire and the Paradise fell into dispute ; Hellfire said: ‘I have been distinguished by the arrogant, tyrants...’”

[Narrated by Muslim]

So, where are the arrogant, where are the tyrants? Where are kings and their sons, and those to whom 

people would lower their heads in submission? 

They were ruined by time and its events 

and left to different homes other than their previous ones.
