Subject: The talk by Nazīh Ḥammād broadcasted on Qurān al-Karīm radio station.
From: ‘Abd al-Azīz bin Abdullah bin Bāz to the esteemed brother, the noble Shaykh, professor Rabī’ bin Hādī al-Madkhalī – May Allāh grant him safety.
As-Salāmu ‘Alaykum wa Raḥmatullāhi wa Barakātuh
The noble professor, Muḥammad bin Sa’d ash-Shuway’ir has informed me that you heard a talk by Nazīh Ḥammād that was broadcasted on Qurān al-Karīm radio station, dated Tuesday 12/06/1415 AH between 7-8 am; and that in his talk he mentioned what is considered a false interpretation of Allah’s attributes i.e. Shyness and Anger. So I hope that, as a person of eminence, you will seek Allah’s reward in refuting him and clarifying the truth to the Muslims as I have not listened to the talk myself.
May Allāh grant you, your eminence, success in every good and multiply your reward. Verily, He ﷻ hears and is close.
As-Salāmu ‘Alaykum wa Raḥmatullāhi wa Barakātuh.
Grand Muftī of Saudi Arabia and head of the committee of senior scholars and the administration of scholarly research and religious verdict.
