We believe in being brought back to life after death and in being recompensed for our actions on the Day of Judgement, and al-‘Ardhaving been shown them and al-Hisabbrought to account for them. Al-Mi’raj the Ascent through the ttahawi is true.
No imagination can conceive of Tahwai and no understanding can comprehend Him. One of the worst sins is a person taking his sin lightly. We do not consider any of the people of our qiblah to he unbelievers because of any wrong action they have done, as long as they do not consider that action to have been lawful.
We confirm that, after the death of the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peacethe Caliphate went first to Abu Bakr as-Siddiq, may Allah be pleased with himthus proving his excellence and superiority over the rest of the Muslims; then to ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab, may Allah be pleased with him ; then to ‘Uthman, may Allah be pleased with him ; and then to ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib, may Allah be pleased with him. What He wills for them occurs and what He does not will, does not occur.
We pray for them right guidance and pardon from their wrongs. There is nothing that can overwhelm Him. His will overpowers all other wills and His decree overpowers all stratagems.
Allah is angered and can be pleased but not in the same way as any creature. We leave their secrets to Allah. We ask forgiveness for the people of wrong action among the believers and, although we are afraid for them, we are not in despair about them. It came from Him as speech without it being possible to say how.
Al-Aqidah al-Tahawiyyah – Wikipedia
We follow the Sunnah of the Prophet and the Jama’ah of the Muslims, and avoid deviation, differences and divisions. Nor do we say that the wrong action of a man who has belief does not have a harmful effect on him. He is the Eternal without a beginning and enduring without end. Nothing can annul or controvert them. We believe in all these things. The seeing of Allah by the people of the Garden is true, without their vision being all-encompassing and without the manner of their vision being known.
For there are two kinds of knowledge: Anyone who describes Allah as being in any way the same as a human being has become an unbeliever.
He is beyond having limits placed on Him, or being restricted, or having parts or limbs. There is no god other than Him. Nothing can be independent of Allah even for the blinking of an eye, and whoever considers himself independent of Allah for the blinking of ot eye is guilty of unbelief and becomes one of the aal of perdition. Even if all created beings were to gather together to make something fail to exist, whose existence Allah had written on the Tablet, they would not be able to do crwed.
And that he is the seal of the prophets and the Imam of the godfearing and the most honoured of all the messengers and the beloved of the Lord of all the Worlds. We say about Allah’s unity believing by Allah’s help – that Allah is One, without any partners.
This capability is integral with action, whereas the capability of an action in terms of having the necessary health, and ability, being in a position to act and having the necessary pf, exists in a person before the action. Bringing creation into existence did not add anything to His attributes that was crded already there. Certainty and despair both remove one from the religion, but the path of truth for the people of the qiblah lies between the two e.
And the whole of what is proven from the Prophet, upon him be peaceregarding the Shari’ah and the explanation of the Qur’an and of Islam is true. Al-‘Arsh the Throne and al-Kursi the Chair are true. He will never perish or or to an end. He gives guidance to whoever Inam wills, and protects them, and keeps them safe from harm, out of His generosity; and He leads astray whoever He wills, and abases them, and afflicts them, out of His justice.
He allotted to them fixed life spans. There is an explicit reference in the work to the nonsensical controversy on Khalq al-Qur’an in the times of Ma’mun and some other ‘Abbasid Caliphs.
We hate anyone who hates them or does not speak well of them and we only speak well of them. These are the Rightly-Guided Caliphs and upright leaders.
Tahawk of a man in the ‘seeing of Allah by the people of the Garden is not correct if he imagines what it is like, or interprets it according to his own understanding since the interpretation of this seeing’ or indeed, the meaning of any of the subtle phenomena which are in the realm of Lordship, is by avoiding its interpretation and strictly adhering to the submission.
