´Aqida Tahawiyya

The doctrine of Ahl al-Sunnah - Text and Commentaries
By Imam Abu Ja`far al-Tahawi (d. 321 H.)
العقيدة الطحاوية


Imam Abu Ja`far al-Tahawi (239-321) can be said to represent the creed of both Ash`aris and Maturidis, especially the latter, as he was also an Imam of the Hanafi madhhab. His Statement of Islamic Doctrine, commonly known as the `Aqida Tahawiyya, is representative of the viewpoint of Ahl al-Sunna wa al-Jama`a, and has long been the most widely acclaimed, and indeed indispensable, reference work on Muslim beliefs.
