Inference brings probability not certainty of knowledge; please correct me if I am wrong.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

I think if you apply inference without reason as a condition of ilm-ul-yaqin and out of context with ayn-ul-yaqin and haqq-ul-yaqin, you might end up with a probability with a certain degree of uncertainty.

Abraham applied entire methodology of yaqin not only inference to establish the certainty of his Deen.

For example, he saw his father make the idols. It did not make sense to him that the creator should serve or worship the created.

He also observed that the idols did not have Godlike attributes of God. For example, the idols could not hear or benefit him. And when he asked his father why he served or worshipped such gods that did not have Godlike attributes of God, his father said, “We saw our forefathers do so”. This also did not make sense to him based on sound reason and logic.

Actually, Abraham went further than that, not only to convince himself that the idols had no Godlike attributes but also to demonstrate to his father and community, by breaking the idols.

And when he got into a “hotspot” with them on the matter, Allah came to his rescue.

And likewise, with the methodology of yaqin, he established the Post-Modern Faith, which superimposed the knowledge of science, religion, culture, politics, etc, without creating any boundaries within and between them that made them separate and exclusive.

I hope this answers your question.
