All of them are subject to His will between either His generosity or His justice.
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. The believers accept it, as absolute truth. We hate anyone who hates ima or does not speak well of them and we only speak well of them.
Rahawi of a man in the ‘seeing of Allah by the people of the Garden is not correct if he imagines what it is like, or interprets it tahwi to his own understanding since the interpretation of this seeing’ or indeed, the meaning of any of the subtle phenomena which are in the realm of Lordship, is by avoiding its interpretation and strictly adhering to the submission.
He allotted to them fixed life spans. We agree with doing the prayer behind any of the people of the qiblah whether right-acting or wrong-acting, and doing the funeral prayer over any of them when they die.
Everyone is cased to what he was created for and it is the action with which a man’s life is sealed which dictates his fate. He ordered them to obey Him and forbade them to disobey Him. Love of them is a part of Islam, part of belief and part of excellent behaviour, while hatred of them is unbelief, hypocrisy and rebelliousness.
Anyone who desires to know things which it is beyond his capacity to know, and whose intellect is not content with surrender, will find that his desire veils him from a pure understanding of Allah’s true unity, clear knowledge and correct belief. Imam at-Tahawi’s al-‘Aqidahrepresentative imxm the viewpoint of Ahl us-Sunnah wal-Jama’ahhas long been the most widely acclaimed, and indeed indispensable, reference work on Muslim beliefs, of which this is an edited English translation.
Most Read Poems What do you see when you look at me? 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 consider any tahaai the people of our qiblah to he unbelievers because of any wrong action they have done, as long as they do not consider that action to have been lawful.
Al-Aqidah al-Tahawiyyah – Wikipedia
We agree that holding together is the true and right path and that separation is deviation and torment. The Pen has dried having written down all that will be in existence until the Day of Judgement.
We follow the Sunnah of the Prophet and the Jama’ah of the Muslims, and avoid deviation, differences and divisions. The Garden and the Fire are created things that never come to an end and we believe that Allah created them before the rest of creation and then created people to inhabit each of them.
There is no god other than Him. We pray for them right guidance and pardon from their wrongs. 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.
Allah says, “Surely religion in the sight of Allah is Islam. Belief consists of belief in Allah. He was always the Lord even when there was nothing to be Lord of, and always the Creator even when there was no creation.
This is because Allah is the Protector of those who recognize Him and will not treat them in the Hereafter in the same way as He treats those who deny Him and who are bereft of His guidance and have failed to obtain His protection.
Allah is angered and can be pleased but not in the same way as any creature. Al-Mi’raj the Ascent through the heavens is true.
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 fully, with reference to the intellectual and historical background of the sects refuted in the work.
We do not say that it was created and we do not go against the Jama’ah of the Muslims regarding it. As regards the sects mentioned in this work, a study of Islamic history up to the time of Imam at-Tahawi would be quite helpful. Taahwi exact nature of the decree is Allah’s secret in His creation, and no angel near the Throne, nor Prophet sent with a message, has tahadi given knowledge of it.
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 cred as true everything that he said and told us about. Praise be to Allah, Lord of all the Worlds. Anyone who does not guard himself tahawwi 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 tqhawi is in any way like Him.
They are subject to His Will and Judgement. Moreover, it contains allusions to the unorthodox and deviant views of the Shi’ahKhawarij and such mystics as lf departed from the right path. No imagination can conceive of Him and no understanding can comprehend Him.
