The Qur’an is the word of Allah. 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 believers accept it, as absolute truth. Everything that has come down to us about this from the Messenger, may Allah bless him crede grant him peacein authentic traditions, is as he said and means what he intended. He ordered them to obey Him and forbade them to disobey Him. We believe in the Angel of Death who is charged with taking the spirits of all the worlds.

He is exalted beyond having opposites or equals. We do not recognise al-yahawi against our Imam or those in imma of our affairs even if they are unjust, nor do we wish evil on them, nor do we withdraw from following them.

al-taahwi He was always the Lord even when there was nothing to be Lord of, and always the Creator even when there was no creation. 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 it, or decrease it, or increase it in any way.

These are the Rightly-Guided Caliphs iamm upright leaders. 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.

He is beyond having limits placed on Him, or being restricted, or having parts or limbs.

We believe in all of this and are certain that everything comes from Him. Allah warns him and censures him and threatens him with Fire when He says, Exalted is He”I will burn him in the Fire. Love of them is a part of Islam, part of belief and part of excellent behaviour, while hatred of them is unbelief, hypocrisy and rebelliousness. 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 ao-tahawi name of ‘Creator’ before He has created them.


All the believers are ‘friends’ of Allah and the noblest of them in the sight of Allah are those who are the most obedient and who most closely follow the Qur’an.

Allah has absolute control over everything and nothing has any control over Him. As He was, together with His attributes, in pre-eternity, so He will remain throughout endless time. We believe in Kiraman Katibin the noble angels who write down our actions for Allah has appointed them over us as two guardians.

Allah is angered and can be pleased but not in the same way as any crred. This is our religion and it creed 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. 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.

Nothing about them was hidden from Him before He created them, and He knew everything that they would do before He created them. We believe in al-Lawh the Tablet and al-Qalam the Pen and in everything written on it.

Everybody acts in accordance with what is destined for him and goes towards what he has been created for.

In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate. He creates without His being in need to do so and provides for His creation without any effort. We agree with doing the prayer behind any of the people of the qiblah whether right-acting or wrong-acting, and doing the funeral prayer over any of them when they die.

This is a presentation of the beliefs of Ahl us-Sunnah wal-Jama’ahaccording to the school of the jurists of this religion, Abu Hanifah an-Nu’man ibn Thabit al-Kufi, Abu Yusuf Ya’qub ibn Ibrahim al-Ansari and Abu ‘Abdullah Muhammad ibn al-Hasan al-Shaybani, may Allah be pleased with them alland what they believe regarding the fundamentals of the religion and their faith in the Lord of all the Worlds.

Good and evil have both been decreed for people.

Al-Aqidah al-Tahawiyyah

When our knowledge about something is unclear, we say “Allah knows best”. 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.

It was not only after the act of creation that He could be described as ‘the Creator’ nor was it only by the act of origination that He could he described as ‘the Originator’. He will he subject to whisperings and find himself confused and full of doubt, being neither an accepting believer nor a denying rejector. We agree that all-tahawi together is the true and right path and that separation is deviation and torment.

This is the din of Muslims.

The Creed of Imam Tahawi (29 classes) – Muslim Open Online College – Medium

Repentance – A Supplication. We believe in what we know of Karamatthe marvels of the awliya’ and in authentic stories about them from trustworthy sources. Nothing happens except what He wills. 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 peaceand in reports from the Companions, may Allah be pleased with them all.

The Creed of Imam Tahawi (29 classes)

We do not prefer any of the saintly men among the Ummah over any of the Prophets but rather we say that any one of the Prophets is better than all the awliya’ put together. 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.

He gives guidance to whoever He wills, and protects them, and creer them safe from harm, out of His generosity; and He leads astray whoever He wills, and abases them, and afflicts them, out of His justice.
