With the help of Allah (swt) we will be going through Imam Tahawi’s treatise explaining what every Muslim should know and believe in at a basic level.
The importance of this lies in the fact that we will be corroborating the views of Imam Abu Hanifa the founder of the Hanafi school of jurisprudence, that have come down to us from different sources. Imam al-Tahawi summarizes the views of the great Imam and shows that they were in conformity with the traditional views of the orthodox school.
This short treatise on ‘Aqida (Islamic theology) written by Imam al-Tahawi though small, is a basic text for all times, listing what a Muslim must know and believe.
This brief course aims to maintain a considerable degree of simplicity, avoiding technical discussions that are not relevant to the average person. The focus is explaining the correct belief rather than involving the reader in the intricacies of debate around theological issues. Verses of the Qurʾān and narrations of Ḥadīth will be briefly quoted in support of the doctrines listed by Imām Tahawī.
While the permanent relevance of the statements of belief in the ʿAqīda are obvious, the historical weight and relevance of certain of these statements can be properly appreciated only if the work is used as a text for study under the guidance of some learned scholar. Mufti Niaz will be providing such insight to this text as part of this course. Since the present book is intended exactly as one such aid towards understanding the details of Islamic belief with clarity, it is hoped that it will be of benefit to the attendee.
Financial Aid is available.
