One of the worst sins is a person taking his sin lightly. Welcome to the new site again! Those who are fortunate are fortunate by the decree of Allah, and those who are wretched are wretched by the decree of Allah.

We pray for them right guidance and pardon from their wrongs. A person does not step out or belief except by disavowing what brought him into it.

Al-Aqidah al-Tahawiyyah – Wikipedia

We hate anyone who hates them or does not tahqwi well of them and we only speak well of them. Everything happens according to Allah’s will, knowledge, predestination and decree.

And we are certain that Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peaceis His chosen servant and selected Prophet and His Messenger with whom He is well pleased. He is the Eternal without a beginning and enduring without end.

Bringing creation into existence did not add anything to His attributes that was not already there. Denying the knowledge which is accessible is disbelief, and claiming the knowledge which is inaccessible is disbelief. As He was, together with His attributes, in pre-eternity, so He will remain throughout endless time. There is nothing like Him.

He creates without His being in need to do so and provides for His creation without any effort. And the whole of what is proven from the Prophet, upon him be peaceregarding the Shari’ah and the explanation of the Qur’an and of Islam is true.

We love the people of justice and trustworthiness, and hate the people of injustice and treachery.

Creed of Imam at-Tahawi, The –

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 number will neither be increased nor decreased. We believe in being brought back to life after death and tahwwi being recompensed for our actions on the Day of Judgement, and al-‘Ardhaving been shown them and al-Hisabbrought to account for them.

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 will not waste the reward of well-doers. Nor do we say that the wrong action of a man who has belief does not have a harmful effect on him. Cree, the Exaltedhas only charged people with what they are able to do and people are only capable to do what Allah has favoured them.


We do not consider any of imm people of our qiblah to he unbelievers because of any wrong action they have done, as long as they do not consider that action tahai have been lawful.

Allah blessed him and granted him peace in this world and the next. Al-Hawdthe Pool which Allah will grant the Prophet as an honour to quench the thirst of his Ummah on the Day of Judgementis true.

Al-‘Arsh the Throne and al-Kursi the Chair are true.

Most Read Poems What do you see when you look at me? He was always the Lord even when there was nothing to be Lord of, and always the Creator even when there was no creation. We do not say that it was created and we do not go against the Jama’ah of the Muslims regarding it. Belief can only be firm when accessible knowledge is accepted and inaccessible knowledge is not sought after. The learned men of the first community and those who followed in their footsteps – the people of virtue, the narrators of the ahadiththe 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 for 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.

For these doctrines shared by Ahl us-Sunnah wal-Jama’ah owe their origin to the Holy Qur’an and consistent and confirmed ahadith – the undisputed primary sources of Islam. What He wills for them occurs and what He does not will, does not occur.

We do not agree with killing any of the Ummah of Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peaceunless it is obligatory by Shari’ah to do so. The grave is either one of the meadows of the Garden or one of the pits of the Fire. We ask Allah to make us firm in our belief and seal our lives with it and to protect us from variant ideas, scattering opinions and evil schools of view such as those of the Mushabbihahthe Mu’tazilahthe Jahmiyyahthe Jabriyahthe Qadriyah and others like them who go against the Sunnah and Jama’ah and have allied themselves with error.

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. Be Mindful O Mankind! He is Exalted in His purity above any evil or perdition and He is perfect far beyond any fault or flaw – “He will not be asked about what He does but they will he asked. 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 say that any of them will categorically go to either the Garden or the Fire, and we do not accuse any of them of kufr disbeliefshirk associating partners with Allahor nifaq hypocrisyas long as they have not openly demonstrated any of those things.

Everybody acts in accordance with what is destined for him and goes towards what he has been created for. He is beyond having limits placed on Him, or being restricted, or having parts or limbs.

These are the Rightly-Guided Caliphs and upright leaders. We add to this that there is no stratagem or way by which anyone can avoid or escape disobedience to Allah except with Allah’s help; nor does anyone have the strength to put obedience to Allah into practice and remain firm in it, except if Allah makes it possible for them to do so. The Qur’an is the word of Allah.

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 any one of them. Everything happens according to His degree and will, and His will is accomplished. Every claim to prophethood after Him is falsehood and deceit.

In the same way that He is the ‘Bringer to life of the dead’, after He has brought them lo life a first time, and deserves this name before bringing them to life, so too He deserves the name of ‘Creator’ before He has created them. 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. As regards the sects mentioned in this work, a study of Islamic imwm up to the time of Imam at-Tahawi would be quite helpful.

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