LUTF: GRACE

 

Based upon the above differences, is the difference about their attitude towards Grace of Allah.

 

The Shias say, "That Grace is incumbent morally upon Allah. By Grace is understood that action on the part of God which would help to bring His creatures nearer to His devotion and obedience and facilitate their moral correction, (which is) morally incumbent on Him."

 

"Allah Has commanded us to be just, while He Himself treats us with something better, namely Grace Tafaddul."

 

Sunnis, on the other hand, say, "God leadeth astray whom He wills and guideth aright whom He wills, and it is not incumbent upon God Most High to do that which may be best for the creature". (Creed of al-Nasafi)
