Reflection: They Uttered Erroneous Statements About Allaah Due to Foolishness

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Allaah [The Most High] stated that the believers amongst the Jinn said:

وَأَنَّهُ ۥ كَانَ يَقُولُ سَفِيہُنَا عَلَى ٱللَّهِ شَطَطً۬ا

“And that the foolish among us used to utter against Allah that which was wrong and not right.” – Meaning: A statement that is deviated from what is correct and exceeding the limits of [what is permissible]. And nothing else led him [i.e. the utterer of such statement] to that except his foolishmess and weak intellect, for if he was composed and [in a state of] tranquillity, he would have known how to speak.
