"If tensed facts exist, then it necessarily follows that truth or falsehood is changing over time. For example, the tensed statement “It is now 1:27 pm” is only true at 1:27 pm and false at all other times.
This pseudo-argument that this wahabi enemy of himself, and of Aļļaah, feels so happy about, originates from likening the Creator to the created.
Again and again they come back to their basic belief in the Creator, which is that He is something limited to a place (i.e. a body) with changes in it over time.
They thought they could know the reality of Aļļaah’s knowledge by imagination and drawing inferences from their own existence.
That is why, for example, they believe that His Will is a series of different wills over time, just like ours. Now even the belief in His perfect Knowledge is subject to their blasphemous attacks
They argue as above, because they cannot imagine perfect knowledge not in time, and think that reality is limited to what they can imagine. It is because they base their arguments upon imagination that they make so many mistakes.

What is “place”?
If you did not exist, where would your place be?
"So, a “place” is just a concept that we associate with things that already exist outside the mind.
"It is a way for us to relate the existence of an object to the existence of other objects in this universe.
"It is not that Allah created a place for us, and then put us into this place!
At the same time, we cannot perceive of something existing outside out minds and it not having a place. If it is to relate to other beings then it must have a place.
"So it makes no sence to say “Allah exists without a place”."
The relationship between: place and matter … is the same relationship between: time and action.
Time is a measure of action, and the measurements of the series of actions makes Time (uppercase).
The duration of an action locates it in Time, just as the place of an object locates it in space.
If He was ultimately perfect (with no room for added perfection) before acting, then why does He act?!
Does He increase in perfection?!
While performing the action, the ultimately perfect thing is for Him (SWT) to perform the action.
And after performing the action, the ultimately perfect thing is for Him (SWT) to have performed this action and not to perform it at this time.
Perfection for actors is through their actions."
Allah's Apostle said, "Allah said, "The offspring of Adam abuse the Dahr (Time),
and I am the Dahr; in My Hands are the night and the day." !
Book 027, Number 5585:
Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: None of you should abuse Time for it is Allah Who is the Time, and none of you should call 'Inab (grape) as al-karm, for karm is a Muslim person.
Book 56, Number 56.1.3:
Malik related to me from Abu'z-Zinad from al-Araj from Abu Hurayra that the
Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "Let none of you complain about time, for Allah is time.
Second, the ĥadith is not of the kind that one affirms attributes by!
Third, an obvious understanding is as the first narration says:
So it means, don't cuss time, because it is not time that gives you afflictions, it is Allah that creates them, just as He is the creator of everything.
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, "Allah said, "The offspring of Adam abuse the Dahr (Time), and I am the Dahr; in My Hands are the night and the day." !
Book 027, Number 5585:
Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: None of you should abuse Time for it is Allah Who is the Time, and none of you should call ‘Inab (grape) as al-karm, for karm is a Muslim person.
Book 56, Number 56.1.3:
Maalik related to me from Abu’z-Zinad from al-Araj from Abu Hurayra that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said,"Let none of you complain about time, for Allah is time.’
As a first note, the expression, “abuse” should be “blame,” not abuse.
“وَقَالُوا مَا هِيَ إِلَّا حَيَاتُنَا الدُّنْيَا نَمُوتُ وَنَحْيَا وَمَا يُهْلِكُنَا إِلَّا الدَّهْرُ وَمَا لَهُمْ بِذَلِكَ مِنْ عِلْمٍ إِنْ هُمْ إِلَّا يَظُنُّونَ [الجاثية : 24]”
Meaning: “They said: ‘This is only our worldly life, we die and we live, and nothing destroys us other than time,‘ and they have no certain knowledge of this, they are only thinking that this is so.” (Al-Jaatħiyah, 24) . (Tafsiiru-n-Nasafiyy, 4/198).
The Prophet (ˆalayhissalaam) therefore forbade them from this practice, and said that what you claim is time, is not time at all. It is the Creator that has willed and created whatever happens to you.
This essence of this problem is that people do not know Aļļaah, because they have not learned. Consequently, whenever they are told something like this, they have no firm principles to understand that it is not literally meant, so they can avoid falling in kufr before asking scholar what the real meaning is.
Now bring a literal translation, and you have brought it out of the context of the Arabic language as well, which leaves little or no room for a sound figurative understanding.
A true recipe for disaster."
