The Jazimiyyah Denied Allah's (s.w.t.) Ability to Act in Creation

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

The Jazimiyyah were a Khwarij sect.  The Jazimiyyah doctrine holds that hospitality, walayah, and hostility, ‘adawat, are a pair of attributes applicable to the Divine Essence.  Other than this, they would be regarded as a branch of the Ma’lumiyyah, since they maintained that anyone who does not know Allah (s.w.t.) by His Names is ignorant.  They rejected the doctrine that actions, af’al, Belong to Allah (s.w.t.), nullifying tawhid al-af’al.  They also rejected the principle that the ability to act is brought into being simultaneously with the action itself.
