فاعلم إنه جهمي – Know that he is a Jahmi
Ibn Rahawayh (راهويه is a Persian nickname, however he was of Arab-Persian descent) said:
‘Tashbih (likening Allah to his creation) is if it is said: A Hand like my hand, or similar to my hand, it is said: Hearing like my Hearing, or similar to my hearing, then this is tashbih. But if what is being said is what Allah has said: Hand, Hearing, Seeing and it is not asked how, nor is it said: like my hearing or similar to my hearing – then it is not tashbih. Allah, the Most Blessed and Most High, said in His Book: “There is none like Unto Him,and he is the all-Hearing,the all-Seeing.”’
A Giant from amongst the Salaf, Amir al-Mu`minin in hadith, Abdullah Ibn al-Mubarak (Khawarizmi of Turkmanish descent) said:
قال عبد الله بن المبارك: «من قال لك يا مشبه فاعلم أنه جهمي» [رواه ابن مندة في شرح حديث النزول 53].
‘If someone says “O mushabbih (the one who likens Allah to His creation) to you, then know that he is a Jahmi.’ [Ibn Mundah in the explanation of the hadith of Nuzul 53]
Another giant from amongst the Salaf, from Pre-Safavid (Rafidi Persia), Abu Hatim Al-Razi (of Persian dewcent. Razi = someone from Rayy and Ray is part of modern day Greater Tehran):
أبو حاتم الرازي رحمه الله: “وعلامة أهل البدع الوقيعة في أهل الأثر، وعلامة الزنادقة تسميتهم أهل السنة حشوية يريدون إبطال الأثر وعلامة الجهمية تسميتهم أهل السنة مشبهة”

‘And from the signs of the people of bid’ah and the zanadiqah (heretics) who attack the people of al-Athar (Ahlul-Sunnah) is that they call the people of the Sunnah (Ahlul-Sunnah) as Hashawiyyah. And from the signs of the Jahmiyyah is that they call Ahlul-Sunnah as mushabbihah (those who liken Allah to his creation).’ [Sharh Usul I’tiqad Ahlus-Sunnah by Al-Lalaka`i, 1/179]
