Quote … Unquote … no. 18

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.

About Rasheed Gonzales
My name is Rasheed Gonzales. I’m a Muslim convert of Filipino descent. Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, I was guided to Islam through one of my younger brothers and a couple of friends, all of whom had converted to Islam sometime before me (may Allah reward them greatly). I am married with four children (and the praise is Allah’s) and also a volunteer for the Qur'an & Sunnah Society of Canada, based in Toronto.
