Toppled Pyramid - is Allah the Legislator?
2) Allah is the legislator (Shari'). Again, not mentioned in any one Ayah nor Hadith. The term is a modern Bid'ah added to the Aqidah without any evidence! Al-Hakim means judge, or ruler, not legislator, and the two terms are not synonymous; Allah (swt) is the ruler oiof the heavens and Earth regardless of whether man "legislates" or doesn't.
