10/03/2011 Lying Against Allah



Question :

On one of your websites it has been attributed to you that you have said that lying is not intrinsically impossible for Allah, that it is within His power but that he has necessitated upon himself not to lie. This statement was translated into English. We would like to confirm whether you really did say this.

Thank you







Answered by : Sheikh Muhammad Saeed Ramadan Al-Bouti



No one has ever directed this question to me and I believe that no one has and no one will face me with such a lowly question.

There is no person ignorant of the fact that lying is a blameworthy quality. Likewise, there is no Muslim who is ignorant of the fact that Allah is described by attributes of perfection and that He is free of any blameworthy attributes. Furthermore, His power to do something does not mean, by necessity, that He can be described by it, whilst at the same time recognising that His power only affects possible matters and does not affect impossible matters.
