Description :
"The Creed of Imam al-Dardir, also known as the Tawhidiyya, was written with the purpose of reviving the core of the Islamic creed in the minds of common Muslims. Its succinct text, easily memorized, captures the essential points of creed that every Muslim is obligated to believe in.
'The science of theology is the most virtuous of the sciences
    It is the primary obligation, and the foundation of all Islamic rulings

Our brother in faith, Dr. Siddiq Adam Mitha commendably set out in commentating upon this Creed in a simple and refined manner, a level appropriate for beginners in this field." —Shaykh ?Abd al-Rahman al-Sha?ar.

"In his commentary, Ustadh Siddiq draws extensively on the texts of traditional scholars of the past and present. Most important from amongst them is Shaykh Mustafa al-?Aqabawi’s commentary upon the Tawhidyya and other treatises by Imam al-Dardir himself, such as his Kharida al-Bahiyya and his commentary on its text.

Other classical works the author cites are from the pens of Imams al-Bayhaqi, al-Ghazali, al-Nasafi, al-Razi, al-Baydawi, al-Subki, al-Taftazani, al-Sanusi, Ibn Kamal Pasha, al-Qari, al-Bayadi, al-Laqqani, al-Zabidi, al-Sawi and al-Bajuri, as well as the modern scholarship of Shaykhs Zahid al-Kawthari, Muhammad al-Hashimi, Hasan Habannaka, Sa?id Ramadan al-Buti, Nur al-Din ?Itr, Nuh al-Qudat and Sa?id Foudah.

In an age where self-defined readings of Islam have begun to emerge, and perhaps even dominate, this wonderful translation and commentary is a welcome addition to the English language library of works on Islam." —Shaykh Walead Mosaad.
