No. Why would it be Shirk? - The perfect words of Allah (ﷻ) are not a creation; they are His uncreated word and they are of Him. Therefore, seeking refuge in His Word is fine. Khaula bint Hakim Sulamiyya reported: I heard Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) as saying: When anyone lands at a place, and then says:" I seek refuge in the Perfect Word of Allah from the ...

It's usually an expression used by those who pretend that Allah may incarnate in one of his creations and be unified with it.

Salaam! This is rightly a very sensitive issue! It is true that misconception of the doctrine of omnipresence leads to blasphemous assumptions like equating God with creation. But it's a faulty approach to try to do away with an apparently blasphemous statement by selectively quoting Quranic verses. Because just as one can highlight some verses to indicate ...

There are some nuances when going in depth, however in general this is the standard creed of the Ahl al-Sunnah - not just Ahmad ibn Hanbal - that the Quran is the speech of Allah and being His attribute it is not created. You may find this in books on aqeedah such as: وإن القرآن كلام الله، منه بدا بلا كيفية قولا، وأنزله على رسوله وحيا، وصدقه المؤمنون على ...

No, there is no such reference in the Qur'an/Hadith, to my knowledge. The very idea of being "godlike" is problematic from an Islamic standpoint. The Qur'an contains various verses that make it clear that God is unlike any of His creation. Qur'an 42:11 فاطر السماوات والأرض جعل لكم من أنفسكم أزواجا ومن الأنعام أزواجا يذرؤكم فيه ليس كمثله شيء وهو ...

Your question can be answered by reference to the idea of tanzeeh in Islamic theology. The relevant Quranic concepts are "taqaddus", "tasbih", "ta'ali" roughly meaning purification, exoneration, transcendence (The actual inflections of these three concepts used in the Quran are نقدس، القدوس، سبح، نسبح، سبحان، تعالی، متعال) Tanzeeh is the act of absolving ...

In "HIS" image can mean two things: 1) Allah's image himself However, by the consensus of the scholars, this does not mean Allah looks like us. That is because Allah says "There is none that is like him" in surah Shura. And in Surah ikhlas "There is nothing equivalent to him". "In his image" does not necessitate tamtheel (to be alike). Rather just like ...

Ascribing divinity to a person would be considered shirk (associating others with Allah), which is considered the worst sin, and implies disbelief in Islam. Indeed, Allah does not forgive association with Him, but He forgives what is less than that for whom He wills. And he who associates others with Allah has certainly fabricated a tremendous sin.
