The universe, as it is a collection of bodies, cannot be infinite in size or count at any point in time. This all comes back to the rule that a quantity of infinity cannot pass or be completed in the past. I.e. once we have established that the universe has a beginning, it follows that it must be limited.

]]>Infinity means unlimited.

]]>Salam sheikh. How come in one of your posts you said the infinity of a quantity is infinity? Also when you talk about infinity in these posts about quantities and whether they could be divided, you really talking about from a begining going to eternally? Is that correct? I thought the word infinity is regferred to something without a begining?

]]>This does not need a proof, it is obvious that an infinite quantity is infinite.

]]>Bismillah wassalam’aleykum Shaykh,

So basically we say that the area of the sum of an infinite amount of surfaces whose areas are all strictly greater than zero can not be finite.

If someone asked why we reply that it is obvious?

Is it possible to proove this further?

(personnaly I find it obvious like the whole greater than the part)

In what books of ‘Aqeedah can we find the proof you give?

(it is extremely helpful for wahabi muslim by imitation)

After checking for them it seems that you have invertecd the two quotations from Abu Mansur for the Ijma’ on the Jahwar:the one from Al-Farqu Bayna Al-Firaq and the one from Usul al-Din.

Jazakum Allahu Khairan for those important quotations!

]]>Because a body with a limited size cannot have an infinity of parts with size.

]]>I ALMOST understand!

“So the problem is not in the division in the future, but in the quantity existing now that would supposedly be actually and really divisible infinitely many times.”

why it is rationnaly impossible to have an actual infinite for the quantity left(existing now)?

]]>Well, specification of some kind at least.
