  • Using Philosophy To Ascertain God’s Attributes

    For example does God’s speech contain lies. I have not found a single traditional counter narrative and had to resort to philosophy. What about the prophet ‎﴾ﷺ﴿- he didn’t present this philosophy. But the issue exists. So is using this philosophy correct?

    No knowledge can be dismissed just because of it’s name or categorization. Every individual claim should be judged on the basis of merit, and accepted or rejected thereof. While there are many philosophical ideas that are completely absurd, there are still many that have helped humanity in tremendous ways.

    The problem arises where for example I was stumped when it came to non philosophical answers for can God lie. And Islam was never presented with Philosophy in the modern sense of the word. So can we answer Islamic problems with Philosphy? And doesn’t it mean that if there are some answers only given by Philosphy that the proof of the deen was not completed. EG what would the prophet ‎﴾ﷺ﴿ day if we asked him this question?
