عبد الواحد الصقلي

In the Name of Allāh, the Most-Merciful, Every-Merciful.

The Decisive Proofs Are Obtained From Allāh And the Strength of the Common Person Amongst the Monotheists Over the Erudite Scholars Amongst the Idolaters

Šayḫ al-Islām Muḥammad Ibn `Abd al-Wahhāb – may Allah have mercy on him – in his book (Removal of the Doubts) [p 160] said: “And the common person from amongst the Monotheists will overcome a thousand from the scholars amongst the those Idolaters, just as the Most High has said, “And that Our soldiers, they verily would be the victors.” (Aṣ- Ṣāffāt 37:173). So the Soldiers of Allāh, they are the victorious by way of evidence and the tongue, just as they are victorious by the sword and the spear. But indeed it is feared for the Monotheist who traverses the path without any weapon. Yet Allāh the Most High has favoured us with His Book, which He has made, “as an exposition of everything, a guidance, a mercy, and glad tidings for those who have submitted themselves [to Allāh as Muslims].” (An-Naḥl 16:89) So no person of falsehood comes with any argument except there is in the Qur’ān that which will nullify it and expose its falsehood, as the Most High said, “And no example or similitude do they bring [to oppose or to find fault in you or in this Qur'ān], but We reveal to you the truth [against that similitude or example], and the better explanation thereof.” (Al-Furqān 25:33). Some of the Exegetes have said, “This verse is generally applicable until the Day of Judgement to every argument that the people of falsehood bring.” End of quote.
