A Step Towards Idolworship?

One can destroy one's faith on his own, no enemy required.

There is one very prevalent activity amongst some Muslims, particularly Muslims with modern education, to impose their personal ideas and opinions on Islam at the cost of compromising on the basic tenets of Islam.

One fundamental injunction of Islam is that you do not try dig any deep at all about the Cryptic Verses of the Noble Qur'an.  One such Cryptic Verse is, for example, Surah Ar-Ra'd (14:3):

It is Allah who erected the heavens without pillars that you [can] see; then He established Himself above the Throne ...
The question is can we invoke an image of any kind, say like Hindus,  about Allah (SWT) above the Throne?
Answer is no because it is clear from Surah Ikhlas (112:4)
Nor is there to Him any equivalent.
Because of Surah Ikhlas (112:4) above Verse  Surah Ar-Ra'd (14:3) becomes cryptic. The matter ends here.

But there art some people who insist upon going further.

This is clearly disobedience to Allah (SWT) - disobedience not in words but disobedience by action.
If you ask them verbally they shall assert that they accept each and every injunction of Lord Most High.

Here is an example of a brother counter questioning - You can't worship something you don't know.

So close to idol worship.
