Al-Aqidah al-Tahawiyyah

Bringing creation into existence did not add anything to His attributes that was not already there. Everybody acts in accordance with what is destined for him and goes towards what he has been created for.

Belief 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 according 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.


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

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.

Tabawiyyah with non-numeric dates. We follow the Sunnah of the Prophet and the Jama’ah of the Muslims, and avoid deviation, differences and divisions. 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.

He was one of the trustworthy, sincere and a haafiz.

And if all created beings were to gather together to make something exist which Allah had not written on it, they would not be able to do so. And that he is the seal of the prophets and the Imam of the godfearing and the most honoured of all the messengers and the beloved of the Lord of all the Worlds. And Qira’at al-Kitab, reading the book, and the reward or punishments and in al-Sirat the Bridge and al-Mizan the Balance.

We bear witness that the ten who were named by the Messenger of Allah, tahawityah 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 ar peace, whose word is truth, bore witness that they would he. 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-Najm They are certain that it is, in truth, the word of Allah.


It is tahawiiyyah and brief. The Garden and the Fire are created things that never come to an end and we believe aat Allah created them al-aqqeedah the rest of creation and then created people to inhabit each of them. We do not enter into vain talk about Allah nor do we allow any dispute about the religion Of Allah.

The only will that people have is what He wills for them. We love the Companions of the Messenger of Allah but we do not go to excess in our love for any one individual among them nor do we disown gahawiyyah one of them. Nor do we say that the wrong action of a man who has belief does not have a harmful effect on him.

It is necessary for the servant to know that Allah already knows everything that is going to happen in His creation and hits decreed it in a detailed and decisive way.

He is the one who has been sent to all the jinn and all mankind with truth and guidance and with light and illumination. This is because He has the power to do everything, everything is dependent al-aqeedaah Him, everything is easy for Him, and He does not need anything. We believe in the punishment in the grave for those who deserve it, and in the questioning in the grave by Munkar and Nakir about one’s Lord, one’s religion and one’s prophet, as has come down in ahadith from the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and in reports from the Companions, may Allah be pleased with them al-aqeedau.

We do not say that any of them will categorically go to either the Garden or the Fire, and we do not accuse any of them of kutr disbeliefshirk associating partners with Allahor nifaq hypocrisyas long as they have not al-aqedah demonstrated any of those things.
