Maturidi Imam al-Bayaadi says Knowledge of Hour is only Known to Allah


The well-known Bosnian, Maturidi scholar Imam al-Bayaadi (1097 d.) wrote a book called Isharaat al-Maraam. This book was recommended by the expert of ilm al-kalaam Sh. Sa’id Fuda as an excellent book on Maturidi Aqida:

ومن أحسن ما كتبه العلماء في طريقة الماتريدية مع مقارنات واعتماد على كلمات الإمام أبي حنيفة المنقولة عنه كتاب إشارات المرام للعلامة البياضي

Imam Bayadi clearly disowns the aqida of the Barelwis and also confirms the 5 things mentioned in the end of Surat Luqman, are only known to Allah. He also states about the knowledge of hour that it is not against manners to not affirm the knowledge of the Hour for the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). He says:

“The Prophets only knows of the unseen what is taught by Allah the Most High to them, and the time of the hour is not from it.
..
His question was to show the attendants the answer of the Messenger that he does not know and that he does not answer about issues he does not know, and that he does not look down upon the statement “I do not know,” because that is the half of knowledge.”

(Al-Bayadi, Isharat al-maram min ‘ibarat al-Imam ed. Abd ar-Razzaq ash-Shafi’i, Al-Bayadi p. 67)
