Among the biggest misguidance is the blasphemy of The Mu^tazilah in saying “the human creates his actions”, they have contradicted the verse
الله خالق كل شيء

Surat Az-zumar Verse 62 means: << Allah is The Creator of everything >>.

The saying of The Mu^tazilah is blasphemy and it states that what the human does voluntarily is not by Allah’s will and power. According to their claim, only what the human does involuntarily is by Allah‘s will.

The people of truth believe that the actions of all the creation are created by Allah and acquired by the creations. The Mu^tazilah contradicted this and exited from the creed of Ahlus-sunnah Wal Jama^ah of the companions and those who followed them correctly.

Imām Abu Ja^far At-tahawiyy says: The actions of the creations occur by the creating of Allah and it is acquired by the creations and this is among what Ahlus-sunnah Wal Jamā^ah have unanimously agreed upon from the time of the companions up to his era. He is not speaking about his own opinion, rather, he is talking about the creed of the nation, from the companions and those who followed them correctly and not those who strayed from them. The majority of the Muslim nation is on what the companions were on. The Muslims from the nation of Prophet Muhammad will always have the same creed until Judgment Day.

The majority of the people who claim that they are Muslims believe that Allah, The Exalted, is The Creator of everything, from the movements of the creations and their stillness and their bodies. Every entity that enters into existence is by Allāh’s creating.

Those Mu^utazilah ended up belying the Qur’ān, they belied several verses like the verse:

قل الله خالق كل شيء

which means: << Say O Muhammad: Allah is The Creator of everything >>. “Everything” in this verse includes the movements and stillness and the entities. “Everything” in this verse is not restricted to only the entities. Doesn’t a person say, I did something?! Action, movement, and stillness is something. A thing is not just an entity only. So much so that, both linguistically and religiously, it is said: “I intend something.” It is valid linguistically and religiously to say, “I intend something.” So, the intention is something and it is among the actions of the heart. Therefore, by precedence, the apparent actions, movements, and stillness are “things.” The verse:

قل الله خالق كل شيء

which means: << Say O Muhammad: Allah is The Creator of everything >>, includes the movements and the stillness which occur from the creations which are acquired by the creations and are created by Allah. The actions are created by Allah.

A even more explicit verse is the verse:

هل من خالق غير الله

which means: << There is no creator except Allah >>. The verse does not say there is no creator of entities except Allah, rather, it’s says there is no creator except Allāh and that includes movements and stillness and entities. All of that is created by Allah, therefore, the truth is with Ahlus-sunnah Wal Jamā^ah>.
