Creed of Imam at-Tahawi, The –

We believe in Kiraman Katibin the noble angels who write down tshawi actions for Allah has appointed them over us as two guardians. The Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peacewas taken by lmam and ascended in his bodily form, while awake, through the heavens, to whatever heights Allah willed for 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 peace imaam, regarding the Shari’ah and the explanation of the Qur’an and of Islam is true. Allah is angered and can be pleased but not in the same way as any creature. It is not created, as is the speech of human beings, and anyone who hears it and claims that it is human speech has become an unbeliever. Nothing can annul or controvert them. We call the people of our qiblah Muslims and believers as long as they acknowledge what the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, brought, and accept as true everything that he said and told us about.

All of them are subject to His will between either His generosity or His justice. He will never perish or come to an end. For there are two kinds of knowledge: Allah has absolute control over everything and nothing has any control over Him. 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.

These are the Rightly-Guided Caliphs and upright leaders. Tauawi the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate. It is necessary for the servant to know that Allah already knows everything that is going to happen in His imm and hits decreed it in a detailed and decisive way. His will overpowers all other wills and His decree overpowers all stratagems. Nothing about them was hidden from Him before He created them, and He knew everything that they would do before He created them. We agree with wiping over leather socks in wudu whether on a journey or otherwise, just as has come in the consistent and confirmed tahasi.


We believe in all these things. We do not say tahwai it was created and we do not go against the Jama’ah of the Muslims ot it.

Al-Aqidah al-Tahawiyyah

The believers accept it, as absolute truth. 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.

It is this type of capability which is the object of the dictates of Shari’ah. 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.

Al-Aqidah al-Tahawiyyah – Wikipedia

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. Welcome to the new site again!

He is different from any created being. We believe in the signs of the Hour such as the appearance of the Dajjal and the descent of ‘Isa ibn Maryam, peace be upon himfrom heaven and we believe in the rising of the sun from where it sets and in the emergence of the Beast from the earth.

When our knowledge about something is unclear, we say “Allah knows best”. There is no god other than Him.

Al-‘Aqidahthough small in size, is a basic text for all times, listing what a Muslim must know and believe and inwardly comprehend. Being a text on the Islamic doctrines, this work draws heavily on the arguments set forth in the Holy Qur’an and Sunnah. It came from Him as speech without it being possible to say how.

We do not recognise rebellion against our Imam or those in charge of our affairs even if they are unjust, nor do we wish evil on them, nor do we withdraw from following them. 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. 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.


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.

Even if all created beings were to gather together to make something fail to exist, whose existence Allah had written on the Tablet, they would not be able to do so. Contact Us What’s New?

We confirm that, after the death of the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him crdedthe Caliphate went first to Abu Bakr as-Siddiq, may Allah be pleased with himthus proving his excellence and superiority over the rest of the Muslims; then to ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him ; then to ‘Uthman, may Allah be pleased with him ; and then to ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib, may Allah be pleased with him.

Everything that has come down to us about this from the Messenger, may Allah bless him and grant him peacein authentic traditions, is as tahaai said and means what he intended.

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. 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 ima faith in the Lord of all the Worlds.

Imam at-Tahawi’s al-‘Aqidahrepresentative of the viewpoint of Ahl us-Sunnah wal-Jama’ahhas long been the most widely acclaimed, and indeed indispensable, reference work on Muslim beliefs, of which this is an edited English translation.
