Al – Aqidah Al-Tahawiyyah

What is this Course all about?


The course presents the belief of “Ahl al-Sunnah wal-Jama’ah”, which is the creed of the first few generations of Muslims and those who followed in their footsteps. The course brings in clear understanding of  this immensely important branch of knowledge and covers the fundamentals of belief and creed of Islam. The topics will be covered such as;

Aqida – Belief in Allah, The Creator of this world and the worlds unknown, His beloved Messenger, Mohammed (PBUH), The Angels, The Qiamah (Judgement Day), Destiny, Life after Death and various other aspects of Islamic creed.

It also clarifies common misconceptions and other elements which are detrimental to one’s Islamic beliefs and emphasizes on acquisition, relevance and practicality of the true Islamic creed as per the Quran, Sunnah, Sahabah (the companions) and al-Salaf (the pious predecessors).

Why Learn Aqida?

Islam is characterized by Islamic Creed (Aqida) – matters of Islamic beliefs which every Muslim shall know of and believe in with all conviction and certainty, with heart and soul.

Only pure Islamic Aqida (Creed) that is free from all innovation, superstition, false beliefs, false interpretation and denials will help a Muslim lead a life as ordained by Allah (SWT) and His Last Messenger, Prophet Mohammed (PBUH).

It is always incumbent upon every Muslim to have authentic knowledge of the matters of Aqida. It is important to acquire correct beliefs which shall be in accordance to book of Allah, the sayings of the prophet Mohammed (PBUH), the Sahabah (the companions) and the Salaf (the pious predecessors).

Therefore, this short course has been carefully designed to provide an opportunity for the Muslim Ummah to explore the Islamic creed as explained in Aqeda al-Tahawiyyah by Imam Abu Ja’far al-Tahawi and thus strengthen their iman.

Course Overview

The creed of Imam al-Tahawi, al Bayan al Sunnah wa’l Jama’ah, (or commonly referred to as Aqida al-Tahawiyya) by Imam Abu Ja’far Ahmad bin Muhammad al-Azdi al-Tahawi al-Hanafi (a 3rd century, muhaddith and jurist) is rightly regarded as the best work ever done on the aqida of Ahl as Sunna wa’l jama’ah.

The work is relatively small in size but effectively speaks of what every Muslim shall know of and believe in. It has gained attention of the leading imams, scholars, leaders of all times. It encompasses the true creed of the Ahl as-Sunnah wa al-Jama’ah, what the Ahl as-Sunnah believes in, the methodology of Islamic life as understood and practiced by Imam Abu Hanifah and his disciples.

It rightly refutes heresies, deviations, inauthentic, baseless or incorrect point of views with respect to Islam and differentiates right from wrong in a much clearer and concise manner and of course, in the light of the Quran and Sunnah. It illuminates for the learners the correct Islamic creed and thus protects the Muslims taking on deviations which will lead astray.
