It-hāf al-Qārī bit-ta‛liqāt ‛alā Sharhis-Sunnah lil-Imāmil-Barbahārī – Point number 100:
‘Know that the ruin of the Jahmiyyah was that they pondered about their Lord, the Mighty and Majestic. They introduced ‘Why?’ and ‘How?’ They abandoned the narrations, used analogy and weighed the religion according to their opinions, so they openly showed disbelief and it being disbelief is obvious. They declared the rest of the people to be disbelievers and were lead themselves into divesting (Allah of His attributes).‘
