Muhammad bin Abdul-Aleem Abul-Hammaam of Jaami?atul-Azhar said, after addressing the issue of interpolating istawaa (He ascended) to mean istawlaa (He conquered):
"?And from this is the danger of ta?weel [i.e. that it necessitates the consideration of Allaah and His Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) to have lied] and Ibn al-Qayyim explains that it [ta?weel] is more evil than ta?teel - which is merely "denying the Divine Attributes and rejecting their being established with the Self of Allaah (Dhaat) - the Most Perfect" - because it [ta?weel] contains both tashbeeh, ta?teel and also playing and fooling with the texts as well as having a bad opinion of them. The Mu?attil (denier of the Attributes) and the Mu?awwil (one who interpolates them) have shared [with each other] in the denial of the realities of the Names and Attributes but the Mu?awwil has exceeded in his playing and fooling with the texts and having a bad opinion of them and also ascribing to the one who speaks with them - that he speaks with their apparent [meanings], that he is astray and leads others astray. Therefore, they have combined in [falling into] four dangers:
 Their belief that what is manifest and apparent from the words of Allaah and His Messenger is impossible and is falsehood - therefore they have understood them to be tashbeeh (anthropomorphism) from the very beginning.
 They have denied the reality of their meanings on the basis that this is such an understanding that does not befit them and nor does it befit the Lord - the Most Perfect.
 Ascribing to the speaker - the perfect in knowledge and elucidation (bayaan) and the perfect in giving advice - and that is Allaah, the Most Perfect - the opposite of elucidation (bayaan), guidance (hudaa) and giving direction (irshaad). This [i.e. resorting to ta?weel] necessitates that they are more knowledgeable than Him, more eloquent and clear [in speech] than Him and greater in giving advice to mankind.
 Playing with the texts [of the Book and the Sunnah] and putting and end to their sanctity and sacredness.
 That the Mu?awwil (one who resorts to ta?weel) is not pleased with - for Allaah the Exalted - what the most knowledgeable of Him amongst the people - and he is the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) - was pleased with for Him.
 That this ta?weel - had Allaah desired it for Himself - then He would have ordered it in His Book or upon the tongue of His Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) and then ta?weel of the Attributes of Allaah - the Most High - would have been obligatory, a necessary part of the religion - the neglection of which would be forbidden and whoever abandoned it would have been sinful. And this is in addition to the fact that when Allaah - the Most High - has not permitted it then doing it would be a mistake and it would be a manner that is blameworthy and forbidden - due to what it implies - [that is]: Its being a form of correcting and rectifying Allaah - the Most High - and His Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam).
