The Beneficial Epistle & Decisive Proof on the Science of Divine Unity, Al-Risalah al-Nafi'ah wa al-Hujjah al-Qati'ah fi 'Ilm at-Tawhid, by the late Damascene polymath Shaykh Muhammad Salih al-Furfur, is a short, yet comprehensive text in mainstream Sunni theology. It is translated into English with annotation by Shaykh Amjad Mahmood.
It can be regarded as a summary of some of the more elaborate works in the field of Kalam. For decades, it has been the primary beginners’ text, taught, studied and memorised as part of the curriculum of the prestigious al-Fath al-Islami Acadamy of Damascus, which was founded by the shaykh himself. With his succinct and lucid style, the author adequately explains the core tenets of faith that every Muslim should believe in, namely, Allah and His Attributes, Prophethood, the revealed Scriptures, Angels, Divine decree and the Last Day. As such, the work serves as an invaluable introduction to Sunni creed for both students of theology and laymen alike.
