The Difference Between The Ash'ari's and The Maturidis with first ever Translation and Commentary in English.
In The Differences between the Ash?aris & Maturidis, Shaykh al-Islam of the Ottoman Empire, Imam Ibn Kamal Pasha identifies twelve areas where the Imams of Ahl al-Sunna—Abu al-Hasan al-Ash?ari and Abu Mansur al-Maturidi—have subtly differed in theology. Topics discussed include amongst others, the attributes and actions of Allah, the question of good and evil, the role of the human intellect, man’s capabilities and his condition in the Hereafter.
Invaluable in elaborating on these differences is the expert commentary of leading contemporary theologian Shaykh Sa?id Foudah in which he succinctly explains the causes of the disagreements and their levels, allowing the reader to benefit from the objective of the treatise.
"Man is not complete until he is acquainted with the sciences by which he is able to act. The best of these is the science of Divine Oneness. It is the greatest knowledge, the medicine of the hearts, the basis for righteous actions, and the foundation of spiritual wayfaring unto the Lord of the worlds." —Shaykh Sa'id Foudah.
