When All taahawiyya h threatens with the Fire those who say. Nothing about them was hidden from Him before He created them, and He knew everything that they would do before He created them. The Tahwwiyya of All a h by the People of Paradise Al-Jannah is true, without their vision being all-encompassing and without a manner of being [11]. There is nothing that He has created in either the heavens or the earth that can contradict it, or add to it, or erase it, or change sqeedah, or decrease it, or increase it in any way.

The only will that people have is what He wills for them. We ask Allah to protect us from all falsehood and we ask His Grace and Favour to do all good. The capability at the time of performing a deed such as at-Tawf i q the enabling of one, by All a h, to do acts of obedience and have a good ending cannot be ascribed to a created being, rather it is integral with action and is created by All a h at the time of encountering the deed.

We do not make any distinction between any of qaeedah messengers, we accept as true what all of them brought.

We renounce any connection with them and in our opinion they are in error and on the path of destruction. 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.

Islamic Aqdedah We agree that holding together is the true and right path and that separation is deviation and torment.

Everybody acts in accordance with what is destined for him and goes towards what he has been created for. We pray for their taawiyya guidance and pardon tahawiyga their wrongs. They will see Him with their everlasting eyes; unlike the creations see one another. A few brothers typed out the Dar al-Fikr edition and uploaded it. We hate anyone who hates them or does not speak well of them and we only speak well of them [35]. He is exalted in His purity above any evil or perdition and He is perfect far beyond any fault or flaw.


We say about All a h’s Taw hi d All a h being different from the creation in every way while believing that All a h is the One who enables us to be obedient- that All a h is One [2]without any partners.

Pilgrimage H ajj and struggle under the leadership of those in charge of the Muslims, whether they are right or wrong-acting, are continuing obligations until the Last Hour comes.

He will he subject to whisperings and find himself confused and full of doubt, being neither an accepting believer nor a denying rejector. For there are two kinds of knowledge: And may Allah grant us a true understanding of faith and count us among those described by the Prophet as the Saved Group. 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. We leave taahawiyya secrets to All a h.

tahawiyta The exact nature of the Destining is All a h’s secret in His creation, and no angel near the Throne, nor Prophet sent with a message, has been given knowledge of it. The Signs of the approach of the Day of Judgment. As He was, together with His attributes, in pre-eternity, so He will remain throughout endless time.

However, Tahawi felt instinctively drawn to the corpus of Imam Abu Hanifa’s works. They are subject to His will and judgement.

Bringing creation into existence did not add anything to His attributes that was not already there. Tahawjyya learned men of the first Salaf aqedah and those who followed in their footsteps – the people of virtue, the narrators of the religious texts, the jurists and analysts- they must only be spoken about in the best way and anyone who says anything bad about them is not on the right path. Belief is, at base, the same aaeedah everyone, 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.

This fundamental belief does not increase or decrease. We hold that obedience to them is part of obedience to All a hthe Glorified, and therefore obligatory as long as they do not order to commit sins. They will be in Paradise but All a has always is Attributed, will be existing without a thaawiyya and without a direction.

The angels will lower their wings in their great pleasure with one who seeks knowledge, the inhabitants of the heavens and the Earth and the fish in the deep waters will ask forgiveness for the learned man. We leave their secrets to Allah.

Certainty and despair both remove one from the religion, but the path of truth for the People of the Qibla lies between the two. Everything happens according to Allah’s will, knowledge, predestination and decree. People’s actions are created by All a h but acquired by people.

He was always the Lord even when there was nothing to be Lord of, and always the Creator even when there was no creation. So anyone who asks in objection: Nor do we say that the wrong action of a man who has belief does not have a harmful effect on him.

In the same way that Aqeecah is the “Bringer to life of the dead,” after He has brought them to life a first time, and deserves this name before bringing them to zqeedah, so too He deserves the name of “Creator” before He has created them.

Denying the knowledge which is accessible is disbelief [19]and claiming the knowledge which is inaccessible is disbelief [20]. He encompasses with his knowledge everything and subjugates it, and what He has created is incapable of encompassing Him.

Al-Aqidah al-Tahawiyyah – Wikipedia

The everlastingness of Paradise and Hellfire is an attribute with which All a h specified them; hence it does not pertain to their reality. Rama da n 29, AH. It is not created as is the speech of human beings, and aqeeddah who hears it and claims that it is human speech has become an unbeliever. Paradise and Hellfire are now created things that never come to an end and we believe that All a h created them before the rest of creation and then created people to inhabit each of them.

There is no god other than Him. So be extremely careful about aqerdah and reflecting on this matter or letting doubts about it assail you, because Allah has kept knowledge of the decree away from human beings, and forbidden them to enquire about it, saying in His Book, “He is not asked about what He does, but they are asked” al-Anbiya’ This is the explanation of the phrase: Good and evil have both been decreed for people.
