The Prohibition of Takyeef
(describing Allah or asking about His description)
The Attributes of Allah cannot be described -neither by actions nor by words.
Textual Proof
(for the prohibition of Takyeef)
“They will never encompass anything of His Knowledge." [Soorah Ta-Ha (20): 110] "They will never encompass anything of His Knowledge." [Soorah al-Baqarah (2): 255]
"Say (O Muhammad ), "the things that my Lord has indeed forbidden are... saying things about Allah of which you have no knowledge." [Soorah al-A'raf (7): 33]
"Do not follow that which you have no knowledge of. Verily! The hearing and the sight and the heart of each of those you will be questioned (by Allah)." [Soorah al-Isra (17): 33]
Thus, he who describes Allah has said that which he has no knowledge of (because we are not informed about the description of Allah’s Attributes).
