Question: If people adhering to Al-Asha`iree school die before Tawheed-ul-Asmaa’ wal-Sifaat (Oneness of Allaah’s Names and Attributes) reaches them, for they had never heard of or understood this Tawheed and no one warned them of Al-Asha`iree school so that they can deny it. They admit Tawheed-ul-Ruboobiyyah (Oneness of Allaah’s Lordship) and Tawheed-ul-Uloohiyyah (Oneness of Worship). What is the ruling on them and are they excused or not?
