A book that discusses the Attributes of Allah

Question

Is there any book in which we can find the Hadiths that discuss the Sifat (attributes) of Allah (according to Ash’ari madhab)?

I thought this could be useful against those who claim that all Sifat of Allah related by the As’aris are based on pure logic of later Ulama, & not from Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) and the Salaf (Pious predecessors)

Answer

Imam Bayhaqi (rahimahullah) has a book entitled: ‘Al-Asma was Sifat’

It’s an excellent source for what you have queried.

This book has more than one edition. The edition with the footnotes of ‘Allamah Muhammad Zahid Al-Kawthari (rahimahullah) are very beneficial. It’s published by Al-Maktabatul Azhariyyah in Cairo.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
