They are certain that it is, in truth, the word of Allah.

It is this type of capability which is the object of the dictates of Shari’ah. He does whatever He wills and He is never unjust.

The Pen has dried having written down all that will be in existence until the Day of Judgement. We love the people of justice and trustworthiness, and hate the people of injustice and treachery. We renounce any connection with them and in our opinion they are in error and on the path of destruction. Allah ennobled him in the way that He ennobled him and revealed to him what He revealed to him “and his heart was not mistaken about what it saw” [ Al-Qur’an This is the din of Muslims.

Nor do we say that the wrong action of a man who has belief does not have a harmful effect on him. He ordered them to obey Him and forbade them to disobey Him. He appointed destinies for those He created. Ash-Shifa’ahthe intercession, which is stored up for Muslimsis true, as related in the consistent and confirmed ahadith. 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 do not argue about the Qur’an and we bear witness that it is the speech of the Lord of all the Worlds which the Trustworthy Spirit came down with and taught the most honoured of all the Messengers, Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace.

Al-Aqidah al-Tahawiyyah – Wikipedia

A person does not crerd out or belief except by disavowing what brought him into it. Repentance – A Supplication. Cred at-Tahawi’s al-‘Aqidahrepresentative of 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. This period was the zenith of hadith and fiqh studies, and Imam at-Tahawi studied with all the living authorities of the day.


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. He allotted to them fixed life spans.

Allah, the Exaltedhas ap charged people with what they are able to do and people are only capable to do what Allah has favoured them. This capability is integral with action, whereas the capability of an action in terms of having the necessary health, and ability, being in a position to act and having the necessary means, exists in a person before the action.

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. It came from Him as speech without it being possible to say how.

Al-Aqidah al-Tahawiyyah

We bear witness that og ten who were named by the Messenger of Allah, may Allah omam him and grant him peace, and who were promised the Garden by him, will be in the Garden, as the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peacewhose word is truth, bore witness that they would he. Praise be to Allah, Lord of all the Worlds.

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. This in sum is what those of Allah’s friends with enlightened hearts need to know and constitutes the degree of those firmly endowed with knowledge. Al-‘Aqidahthough small in size, is a basic text for all times, listing what a Muslim must know and believe and inwardly comprehend. Allah is angered and can be pleased but not in the same way as any creature.

We believe in being brought back to life after death and in being recompensed for our actions on the Day of Judgement, and al-‘Ardhaving been shown them and al-Hisabbrought to account for them. What He wills for them occurs and what He does not will, does not occur. We ask forgiveness for the people of wrong action among the believers and, although we are afraid for them, we are not in despair about them.


Belief is, at base, the same for everyone, but the superiority of some over others in it tqhawi due to their fear and awareness of Allah, their opposition to their desires, and their choosing what is more pleasing to Allah.

He has always existed together with His attributes since before creation. We love the Companions of the Messenger of Allah but we imak not go to excess in our love for any one individual among them nor do we disown any one of them.

His will overpowers all other wills and His decree overpowers all stratagems. It is not created, as is the speech of human beings, and anyone who hears it and claims that it is human speech has become an unbeliever. We do not make any distinction between any of the Messengers, we accept as true what all of them brought. We hate anyone who hates them or does not crwed well of them and we only speak well of them.

The believers accept it, as absolute truth. Those of the Urnmah of Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peacewho have committed grave sins will be in the Fire, but not forever, provided they die and meet Allah as believers affirming His unity even if they have not repented. Allah has absolute control over everything and nothing has any control over Him. A Piece of You He is living and never dies and is eternally active and never sleeps. May Allah grant us a true undersanding of faith and include us with those to whom Allah refers as ‘those who believe, fear Allah and do good deeds’ ; and ‘he who fears Allah, endures affliction, then Allah creedd not waste the reward of well-doers.
