About This Book:
"Islam is distinguished from other religions by its extensive collection of laws, regulations, and social structures." Because belief serves as the fundamental foundation for actions, the Islamic creed ('aqidah) lies at the heart of these norms and institutions. This faith gives birth to philosophy and points of view about creation and the Creator. The Salaf (Pious Predecessors) of the Muhammadan community (peace and blessings be upon him) emphasized this principle significantly for practical and theoretical reasons. True Islamic philosophy, free of superstitions and inventions, as well as misconceptions and denials, served as a guiding principle for life and guided their contemplation and thinking.
"The Creed of At-Tahawi," authored by Imam Abu Ja'far Ahmad Ibn Muhammad Al-Azdi At-Tahawi (d. 321 A.H.), is one of the most prominent works on the subject. Despite its small size, it contains quite precise information on the core concepts of faith as well as its most crucial components. The scholar assigned to clarify and present it was 'Ali Ibn 'Ali Ibn Abi Al-Izz Al-Dimashqi (d. 792 A.H.). His commentary is informative and simple to follow.
This book has had a tremendous impact on the university since its inception. It is the principal source of information for university-level 'aqidah curriculum. Prior to this, intellectuals and leaders in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia had been paying close attention to it.
