Is the Kalaam of Allah Ta’ala qadeem?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: In the Ahaadith like the following:

ینزل ربنا عز و جل کل لیلة الی سماء الدنیا حین یبقی ثلث اللیل الاخر فیقول من یدعونی فاستجیب له من یسئلنی فاعطیه من یستغفرنی فاغفر له

How do we understand this? Is All Allah Ta’ala’s speech qadeem?


A: The kalaam of Allah Ta`ala is qadeem. Its muta`alliq and zuhoor is haadith.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
