Shirk Defined – al-Hashimi

In miftaah al-jannah; sharh aqidat ahl al-sunna by the Maliki Sh. Muhammad al-Haashimi (the Shaykh of Sh. Abd al-Qadir Isa and Sh. Abdur Rahman Shaghouri) it was mentioned:

جاء رجل إلى علي بن أبي طالب رضي الله عنه وقال: أنا أملك الخير والشر والطاعة والمعصية، فقال: تملكها مع الله أو بدون الله؟
فإن قلت: تملكها مع الله فقد ادعيت أنك شريك مع الله، إن قلت: أملكها بدون الله فقد ادعيت أنك أنت الله ، فتاب الرجل على يديه

“A person came to Ali ibn Abi Talib may Allah be pleased with him and said: I am the owner of good, evil, obedience and disobedience. Ali said: Do you own it with Allah or without Allah? If you say: you own it with Allah, you have claimed you are a partner with Allah, and if you say, you own it without Allah, you have claimed that you are Allah. So the person repented in front of him.”

(even though this narration does not have perhaps a sanad, he cited it and it refutes the deviant belief of granting awliya/prophets the “power of all good or bad.”)
