Tafweed: The salaf did not delve into how the attributes of Allah are. The knowledge of that is with Allah alone. As for the Asharees and others, Tafweed to them is that they believe that what is apparent from the attributes is not what is meant. To them, the Aayaat about the attributes of Allah are mutashaabih, i.e. of uncertain meaning and, thus, they were not known about by the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) and the Companions. This is clearly wrong! Refer to Risaalah Alaaqaatul-Ithbaat wat-Tafweed bi Siffat Rabbil-Aalameen of Dr. Ridaa Mutee and Shaikh Abdul-Azeez ibn Baazs (rahimahullah) reply to as-Saaboonee 9pp.8-14).
 Reported by Muslim (Eng. trans. 4/1397/no.6418).
 The hadeeth about Allah descending is authentic and has many routes of narration. For example, refer to al-Bukhaaree (Eng. trans. 2/136/no.246) and Muslim (Eng. trans. 1/365/no.1656)
 He (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) said, Allah descends on the evening of Arafah to the lowest heaven and boasts about the people of the earth to the Angels. Reported by Ibn Mandah in at-Tawheed (147/1). Its chain of narration is weak, as explained in Silsilatud-Daeefah (no.679) of Shaikh al-Albaanee. However, it is authentic as the saying of Umm Salamah (radiallaahu anhaa), reported by ad-Daarimee in ar-Radd alal-Jahmiyyah, ad-Daaraqutnee in an-Nuzool (95,96) and al-Laalikaaee (no.768). It has the ruling of being the saying of the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam), since it is something that Umm Salamah could not have known except from him.
 Refer to ar-Radd alal-Jahmiyyah of ad-Daarimee (p.72). Allah, the Most High, says:
Your Lord comes with His angels, rank upon rank. Soorah al-Fajr (89): 22
 Reported by al-Bukhaaree (Eng. trans. 6/353/no.371) and Muslim (Eng. trans. 4/1483/no.6819).
 Reported by al-Bukhaaree (Eng. trans. 9/369/no.502).
 Reported by Muslim (Eng. trans. 4/1378/no.6325) and Ibn Abee Aasim in as-Sunnah. The explanation of this hadeeth, by Shaikh Hammaad al-Ansaaree, can be found in Kitaabus-Sifaat of ad-Daaraqutnee (p.58, checking of Dr. Alee Naasir Faqeehee)
 Musnad Ahmad (1/285 and 290) and Ibn Abee Aasim in as-Sunnah and declared saheeh by Shaikh al-Albaanee, who has mentioned that this was in a dream as indicated by some wordings of the hadeeth. Refer also to as-Sunnah (no.1117) of Abdullah ibn Ahmad.
 Jahmee: a denier of Allahs attributes, following the way of Jahm ibn Safwaan and his teacher al-Jad ibn Dirham, both of whom were executed for their wicked beliefs and heretical teachings.
