Allah’s Annihilation?!

Allah’s Annihilation?! A Reply to the Christian Polemic “The Annihilation of Allah: A Question and Challenge to Salafi Anthropomorphists” (PDF), by yours truly.

From the article:

Before addressing the actual challenge, I would like to mention that I found the title of this Christian polemicist’s tract quite amusing. Here we have a Christian who believes that Prophet Jesus, upon him be peace, was Allah incarnate labelling Salafîs as anthropomorphists. The irony in that should be quite resonant to anyone of sound mind. One would think that Christians would be more deserving of that designation than Salafîs.

Anthropomorphism is defined as “an interpretation of what is not human or personal in terms of human or personal characteristics.” This is something that is not necessetated by merely affirming certain attributes to non-human things.

I’m currently considering writing another article, with the help of a friend or two, to tackle the issue of anthropomorphism. One of my friends has already contributed a few quotes we could use for it. I’ve also got a few books in mind to sift through for material, so it shouldn’t be too tough a project if we even get around to doing it. We’ll see though, Allah willing.
