The Knowledge of God, Unity, the Names and Attribute from the Viewpoint of the Late 'Abd al-Jalil Qazvini

Mohammad Biyabani Oskou'ie [1]

When man reflects truly on his God, he finds himself as His creature and possession and in need of all of His Essence. Hence, he considers worshipping Him as the most exalted stage of his culmination. This article studies the way to arrive at the true knowledge toward God from the viewpoints of 'Abd al-Jalil Qazvini Razi, other Shiite scholars, the Qur'anic verses and the traditions from the Ahl al-Bayt PBUT. The unity of the Most High God and the divine Names and Attributes are the other issues dealt with by the present article.

Key Words: Knowledge of God, unity, kinds of unity, names and attributes, 'Abd al-Jalil Qazvini
