Allah has commanded us to not speak of Him except the truth and to not speak of Him except with knowledge. He commanded us [to be] just and equitable, so it is not permissible for us when a Jew or a Christian–let alone a Râfidî–makes a statement containing truth that we leave it or we reject all of it. Rather, we do not reject except what it contains of falsehood without [rejecting] what it contains of truth … . Due to this, we did not reject what the Mu’tazilah and the Râfidah said of truth. Rather, we accepted it.
