We believe in Kiraman Katibin the noble angels who write down our actions for Allah has appointed them over us as two guardians.

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. 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 is a fundamental aspect of belief and a necessary element of all knowledge and recognition of Allah’s oneness and Lordship.

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. They are subject to His will and judgement. As the Book of our Lord has expressed it: So be extremely careful about thinking 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’.

Ibn Abi’l ‘Izz al-Hanafi – al ‘Aqeedah at-Tahawiyyah

Views Read Tahawiyyau View history. We ask forgiveness for the people of wrong action among the believers and, although we tahawiyyha afraid for them, we are not in despair about them. If He wants, He will forgive them and pardon them out of His generosity, as is mentionied in the Qur’an when He says: He encompasses everything and is above it, and what He has created is incapable of encompassing Him.


He based his commentary on the books of Ahl al-Sunnah, especially the books of Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah may Allaah have mercy on him and his student Ibn al-Qayyim may Al-aqeeda have mercy on him. 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. 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 al-aqeexah the Garden, as the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, whose word is truth, bore witness that they would he.

He also described what Ahl-al-Sunnah believe with regard to the noble Sahaabah may Allaah be pleased with themand that loving them is part of Islam, faith and ihsaan, and that hating them is tahawiyyha, hypocrisy and sin.

Love of them is al-aqeeedah part of Islam, part of belief and part of excellent behaviour, while hatred of them is unbelief, hypocrisy and rebelliousness. Retrieved from ” https: Advanced embedding details, examples, and help!

The believers accept it, as absolute truth. We believe in what we know of Tahawiygah, the marvels of the awliya’ and in authentic stories about them from trustworthy al-aqeevah. For there are two kinds of knowledge: 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.

No one is safe in his religion unless he surrenders himself completely to Allah, the Exalted and Glorified and to His Messenger, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and leaves tahawiyyah knowledge of things that are ambiguous to the one who tahwiyyah them.

They are certain that it is, in truth, the word of Allah. The capability in terms of Tawfiq Divine Grace and Favour which makes an action certain to occur cannot be ascribed to a created being. As He was, together with His attributes, in pre-eternity, so He will remain t hroughout endless time.


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. Everyone is cased to what he was created for and it is the tahawuyyah with which a man’s life is sealed which dictates his fate. Allah has absolute control over everything and nothing has any control over Him.

He was praised by more than one of the scholars: Belief can only be firm when accessible knowledge is accepted and inaccessible knowledge is not sought after.

He is beyond having limits placed on Him, or being restricted, or having parts or limbs. Nothing can be independent of Allah even for the blinking of an eye, and whoever considers himself independent of Allah for the blinking of an eye is guilty of unbelief and becomes la-aqeedah of the people of perdition.

We believe in the angels, and the Prophets, and the books which were revealed to the messengers, and we bear witness that they were all following the manifest Truth. 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.

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. Nor do we say that the wrong action of a man who al-aqedeah belief does not have a harmful effect on him. Nothing about them was hidden from Him before He created them, and He knew everything that they would do before He created them.


He explained in his introduction his aims in doing that, and said: We do not delve into that, trying to interpret it according tahawiyyyah our own opinions or letting our imaginations have free rein. Delving into it and reflecting too much about it only leads to destruction and loss, and results in rebelliousness.
