No one can ward off His decree or put back His command or overpower His affairs. We do not say that it was created and we do not go against the Jama’ah of the Muslims regarding it. The grave is either one of the meadows of the Garden or one of the pits of the Fire.
It was not only after the act of creation that He could be described as ‘the Creator’ nor was it only by the act of origination that He could he described as ‘the Originator’.
Nothing happens except what He wills. The 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 been given knowledge of it. 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.
For these doctrines shared by Ahl us-Sunnah wal-Jama’ah owe their origin to the Holy Qur’an and consistent and confirmed tahaw – the undisputed primary sources of Islam. As Allah says in His Book, “He created everything and decreed it he a detailed way.
And the whole of what is proven from the Prophet, upon him be peaceregarding the Shari’ah and tauawi explanation of the Qur’an and of Islam is true. Praise be to Allah, Lord of all the Worlds. Taawi number will neither be increased nor decreased. Everything happens according to Allah’s will, knowledge, predestination and decree.
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.
We do not enter into vain talk about Allah nor do we allow any dispute about the religion Of Allah. 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. Every claim to prophethood after Him is tahai and deceit.
We hope that Allah will pardon the people of right action among the believers and grant them entrance into the Garden through His Mercy, but we cannot be certain of this, and we cannot bear witness that it will definitely happen and that they will be in the Garden.
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. Delving into it and reflecting too much about it only leads to destruction and loss, and results in rebelliousness.
There is no god other than Him. All the believers are ‘friends’ of Allah and the noblest of them in the sight of Allah are those who are the most obedient and who most closely follow the Qur’an.
The same applies to all actions done by people, which are done exactly as Allah knew they would be done. We hold that obedience to them is part of obedience to Allah, The Glorifiedand therefore obligatory as long as they do not order to commit sins.
One of the worst sins is a person taking his sin lightly. Good and evil have both been decreed for people.
We bear witness that the ten who were named by the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless 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. We follow the Sunnah of the Prophet and the Jama’ah of the Muslims, and avoid deviation, differences and divisions. Imam 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.
Al-Aqidah al-Tahawiyyah – Wikipedia
He will never perish or come to an end. The Qur’an is the word of Allah. Belief is, at base, the same for thaawi, but the superiority of some over others in it is due to their fear and awareness of Allah, their opposition to their desires, and their choosing what is more pleasing to Allah.
Nothing about them was hidden from Him before He created them, and He knew everything that they would do before He created them. While creedd 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.
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 blessed him and granted him peace in this world and the next.
Being a text on the Islamic doctrines, this work draws heavily on the arguments set forth in the Holy Qur’an and Sunnah. He encompasses everything and is above it, and what He has created is incapable of encompassing Him.
