A Powerful Refutation of the Ash’arees by Shaykh Muhammad Aman al-Jami (rahimahullaah)

The Noble Scholar, Shaykh Muhammad Amaan al-Jaami (may Allah have mercy upon him) stated:

If the Ash’aree says to you: “Indeed Allah (‘azza wa-jall) does not come down during the last third of the night (to the lowest heavens); rather it is only His command that comes down.” Say to him: “His command comes down from who?.” He will say: “It comes down from Allah.” Say to him: “This is what we wanted.” Therefore, he (the Ash’aree) has established that Allah is above the heavens.

Original Arabic

الشيخ محمد آمان الجامي -رحمه الله – إذا قال لك الأشعري إن الله عز وجل لا ينزل في الثلث الأخير من الليل وإنما ينزل أمره ! فقل له: أمره ينزل من عند من ؟
سيقول لك : من عند الله
فقل له : هذا ما كنا نريد
إذن فقد أثبت أن الله في السماء
