Abstract: 
Problems, like our knowledge of God, speaking of him, the ways to win his proximity him, and his names and attributes, have been generally matters of controversy. This leads some to positive theology and some others to negative theology. Those who support negative theology believe that we can talk about God’s acts and attributes just negatively. Maimonides considers the negative descriptions as the true and perfect descriptions of God. Therefore he says that God is absolutely perfect; he is neither like creatures nor has any partners. Qazi Saeid too strongly disagrees with idea of ascribing names and attributes to God’s essence. He believes in the pure transcendence of God. However putting too much emphasis on transcendence and pure reliance on negative attitude make it impossible to talk about God in a real and meaningful way.
