Discuss Allah's attribute of Speech (Kalam).


The Speech of Allah, like all His Attributes, is an Eternal and Everlasting Attribute. His Speech is not letters, sounds, or a language.  Suratun-Nisa, Ayah 164 means, “Allah spoke to Musa (Moses) with His Eternal Kalam.” Imam Abu Hanifah mentioned in his book Al-Fiqhul-Absat, “Allah’s Speech (Kalam) is not like our speech. We speak through organs of speech and by letters, whereas Allah’s Eternal Kalam is without an organ or a sound”.
