Wahhabi Modifiers to the Divine Attributes

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

The Wahhabi, ‘Abd al-‘Aziz ibn ‘Abdullah ibn Baz, former Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, added modifiers to the Divine Attributes, which is the position of the sect.

For example, Wahhabis assert that Allah (s.w.t.), “istawa ‘ala al-‘Arsh haqqan,” variously translated as, “He Established Himself over the Throne in person”, or “actually” or “literally”.  Haqqan” is an innovated addition, which violates the practice of the true Salaf consisting of asserting the Divine Attributes “bila kayf”, “without a how”; since any modifier is a modality.

If Allah (s.w.t.) is literally on the Throne, it means He must possess a jism, body.  This is clear anthropomorphism on the part of ibn Baz, and is explicit shirk.  This is an example of why Wahhabis are kuffar, and mushrikin.
