ISMA’ILIYAH اسما عيلية
A Shi’ah sect who said that Isma’il ibn Ja’far as-Sadiq was the true Imam and not Musa al-Kazinn and who held that God was neither existent nor non-existent, nor intelligent nor unintelligent, nor powerful nor helpless, &c.; for, they said, it is not possible for any thing or attribute to be associated with God, for He is the maker of all things, even of names and attributes. (Kitabu ‘t-Ta’rifat, in loco.)
