QXP is a treasure, i hope more and more people can find this gem on the web.
My dear teacher,
Studying history is one of my favourite works,
i forgot this query about Raghib: You once mentioned Raghib's creed was Ash'ari, it means he pretended to be Ash'ari while indeed he was Mutazili (and he has never been Ash'ari), or first he was Ash'ari and later he became a Mutazali?
And another thing, should Raghib not avoid these creeds/sects/labels as a scholar of the Quran?
