Description : Introduction to Islamic Creed
As a response to a request, Imam al-Bajuri, may Allah have mercy upon him, in this short treatise outlines, the core beliefs of the traditional, orthodox Sunni doctrine ('Aqida) that every Muslim should be aware of.
The Shaykh writes:
" this blamable soul in need of the mercy of his Master, the Omniscient, the Observant, informs that a brother, may Allāh reform him and I, asked me to write for him a good treatise dealing with the attributes of the Lord and their antitheses, what is permissible for Him Most High, what are the attributes that are logically necessary for the divine Messengers (al-Rusul), what attributes are logically possible for them, and what attributes are logically impossible for them. So I undertook this effort to comply with his request. All enabling ability belongs to Allāh, so seeking His aid I declare: Every accountable soul [that is, every sane soul possessed of reason by having come of age through the attainment of puberty] is obliged [by sacred law (al shari‘ah)] to know what is logically necessary for Him Most High, what is possible for Him, and what is impossible for Him."
Designed to be studied with a teacher or read on one's own, this text will equip the student with sufficient knowledge of the essentials of Muslim theology to be able to distinguish truth from falsehood, orthodox from heterodox, Ahl al-Sunna wa al-Jama'a
Islam from other than it.
