Allah blessed him and granted him peace in this world and the next.
This is a fundamental aspect of belief and fahawi necessary element of all knowledge and recognition of Allah’s Oneness and Lordship. We believe in Kiraman Katibin the noble angels who write down our actions for Allah has appointed them over us as two guardians. He was always the Lord even when there was nothing to be Lord of, and always the Creator even when there was no creation.
Creeed there are two kinds of knowledge: We do not enter into vain talk about Allah nor do we allow any dispute about the religion Of Allah. Nothing can be independent of Allah even for the blinking of an eye, and whoever considers himself independent of Allah for the blinking of an eye is guilty of unbelief and becomes one of the people of perdition.
In the same way that He is the ‘Bringer to life of the dead’, after He has brought them lo life a first time, and deserves this name before bringing them to life, so too He deserves the name of ‘Creator’ before He has created them.
There is an explicit reference in the work to the nonsensical controversy on Khalq al-Qur’an in the times of Ma’mun and some other ‘Abbasid Caliphs. The believers accept it, as absolute truth.
Creed of Imam at-Tahawi, The –
The seeing of Allah by the people of the Garden is true, without their vision being all-encompassing and without the manner of their vision being known. We believe in the signs of the Hour such as the appearance of the Dajjal and the descent of ‘Isa ibn Maryam, peace be upon himfrom heaven and we believe in the rising of the sun from where it sets and in the emergence of the Beast from the earth.
Everything that has come down to us about this from the Messenger, may Allah bless him and grant him peacein authentic traditions, is as he said and means what he intended. This is the din of Muslims. He is exalted beyond having opposites or equals.
Certainty and despair both remove one from the religion, but the path of truth for the people of the qiblah lies between the two e.
Denying the knowledge which is accessible is disbelief, and claiming the knowledge which is inaccessible is disbelief. He does whatever He wills and Tahxwi is never unjust. He is different from any created being. Allah knew, before the existence of time, the exact number of those who would enter the Garden and the exact number of those who would enter the Fire. Nothing about them was hidden omam Him before He created them, and He knew everything that they would do before He created them.
While the permanent relevance of the statements of belief in al-‘Aqidah is obvious, the historical weight and point of certain of these statements can be properly appreciated only if the work is used as a text for study under the guidance of some learned person able to elucidate its arguments imak, with reference to the intellectual and historical background of the sects refuted in the work.
He appointed destinies for those He created. It is this type of capability which is the object of the dictates of Shari’ah. This is our religion and it is what we believe in, both inwardly and outwardly, and we renounce any connection, before Allah, with anyone who goes against what we have said and made clear.
We agree with wiping over leather socks in wudu whether on a journey or otherwise, just as has come in the consistent and confirmed ahadith. Contact Us What’s New? Even if all created beings were to gather together to make something fail to exist, whose existence Allah had written on the Tablet, they would not be able to do so.
We do not accept as true what soothsayers and fortune-tellers say, nor do we accept the claims of those who affirm anything which goes against the Book, the Sunnah and the consensus of the Muslim Ummah. He is the Eternal without a beginning and enduring without end. We confirm that, after the death of the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peacethe Caliphate went first to Abu Bakr as-Siddiq, may Allah be pleased with himthus proving his excellence and superiority over the rest of the Muslims; then to ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him ; then to ‘Uthman, may Allah be pleased with him ; and then to ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib, may Allah be pleased with him.
And the whole of what is proven from the Prophet, upon him be peaceregarding the Shari’ah and the explanation of the Qur’an and of Islam is true. Those who are fortunate are fortunate by the decree of Allah, and those who are wretched are wretched by the decree of Allah. We call the people of our qiblah Muslims and believers as long as they acknowledge what the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, brought, and accept as true everything that he said and told us about.
We do not prefer any of the saintly men among the Ummah over any of the Prophets but rather we say that any one of the Prophets is better than all the awliya’ put together. We do not recognise rebellion against our Imam or those in charge of our affairs even if they are unjust, nor do we wish evil on them, nor do we withdraw from following them. We believe in the Angel of Death who is charged with taking the spirits of all the worlds.
In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate.
These are the Rightly-Guided Caliphs and upright leaders. We leave their tzhawi to Allah. Be Mindful O Mankind! The Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peacewas taken by night and ascended in his bodily form, while awake, through the heavens, to whatever heights Allah willed for him.

He is the one who has been sent to all the jinn and all mankind with truth and guidance and with light and illumination. No one can ward off His decree or put back His command or overpower His affairs. Being a text on the Islamic doctrines, this work draws heavily on the arguments set forth in the Holy Qur’an and Sunnah.
We do not make any distinction between any of the Messengers, we accept as true what thawi of them brought.
We agree that holding together is the true and right path and that separation is deviation and torment. Anyone who does not guard himself against negating the attributes of Allah, or likening Allah to something else, has gone astray and has failed lo understand Allah’s Glory, because our lord, the Glorified and the Exalted, can only possibly be described in terms of Oneness and Absolute Singularity and no creation is in any way like Him.
Al-‘Arsh the Throne and al-Kursi the Chair are true. It is the Speech of Allah and no speech ak any created being is comparable to it. When our knowledge about something is unclear, we say “Allah knows best”.
