Who created Allaah?

Taken from
Silsilah Ahadeeth As-Saheehah
of
Shaykh Al-Albaani
Translated by
Abbas Abu Yahya
Shaykh al-Albani refutes this doubt by researching the following Ahadeeth:
On the authority of ‘Aa’ishah -Radi Allaahu anha- who said that the Messenger of Allaah –
sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- said: ‘If the Shaytan comes to one of you and says: ‘Who created
you?’ say ‘Allaah.’ Then he will say: who created Allaah? So if one of you finds this
situation then say: ‘I have believed in Allaah and His Messengers.’ This doubt will
then leave you.’
Narrated by Ahmad graded Hasan by Albani [saheehah 116]
In another narration also in Saheehah (Hadeeth No.117), the Prophet -sallAllaahu alayhi wa
sallam- said: ‘The Shaytan comes to one of you and says: ‘Who created this? Who
created that? Who created this? Until he says who created your lord? So if this
reaches you then seek refuge in Allaah and it will end.’
Narrated by Bukhari, Muslim and Ibn Sunni.
In the wording narrated by Abu Hurairah, the Messenger of Allaah -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallamsaid:
‘The people will question one another so much that one of them will say: So Allaah
created the creation, then who created Allaah Azza wa Jal? So if they say this, then <>
Then he should spittle to his left three times and seek refuge from the Shaytan.

Then Shaykh Albani comments by saying:
Fiqh al-Hadeeth:
These authentic Ahadeeth indicate that it is obligatory for the one Shaytan whispers
to, by saying ‘who created Allaah?’, that he turns away from debating with him and
responds with what was mentioned in the previous Ahadeeth, the summary of which
is:
I have believed in Allaah and His Messengers. ‘He is Allaah, The One, Allaahus-Samad,
He does not beget nor was He begotten, and there is none like unto Him.’ Then he
should spittle to his left three times and seek refuge from the Shaytan. This (then)
stops him from being carried away by the whisperings of Shaytan.
I truly believe that whoever does this sincerely, out of obedience to Allaah and His
Messenger, these whisperings will definitely leave him and his Shaytan will be defeated
due to the saying of the Messenger of Allaah -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam-: ‘Then this doubt will
leave you.’
This noble prophetic teaching is more beneficial and more definitive against
whisperings than intellectual debate in this issue, since it is very rare that such a debate
will be beneficial. What is sad is that the majority of people are neglectful of this
noble prophetic teaching! So take heed O Muslims, learn the Sunnah of your Prophet
and implement it, in it is cure and honour for you.’
