The exact nature of the decree is Allah’s secret in His creation, and no angel near the Throne, nor Prophet sent with a message, has been given knowledge of it.

And Qira’at al-Kitabreading the book, and the reward or punishments and in as-Sirat the Bridge and al-Mizan the Balance. The only will that people have is what He wills for them. We believe in all these things. We renounce any connection with them and in our opinion they are in error and on the path of destruction. Moreover, it contains allusions to the unorthodox and deviant views of the Shi’ahKhawarij and such mystics as had departed from the right path.

We agree with doing the prayer behind any of the people of the qiblah whether right-acting or wrong-acting, and doing the funeral prayer over any of them when they die. He encompasses everything and is above it, and what He has created is incapable of encompassing Him.

This period was the zenith of hadith and fiqh studies, and Imam at-Tahawi studied with all the living authorities of the day. Nothing happens except what He wills. No imagination can conceive of Him and no understanding can comprehend Him.

They are certain that it is, in truth, the word of Allah. He is different from any created being. This is our religion and it is what we believe in, both inwardly and outwardly, and we renounce any connection, before Allah, with anyone who goes against what we have said and made clear. Allah, the Exaltedsays, “Allah does not charge a person except tzhawi to his ability. Belief is, at base, the same for everyone, but the superiority of some over others in it is gahawi to their fear and awareness of Allah, their opposition to their desires, and their iimam what is more pleasing to Allah.

A Piece of You Delving into it and reflecting too much about it only leads to destruction and loss, and results in rebelliousness. Be Mindful O Mankind! Belief consists of affirmation lay the tongue and acceptance by the heart.

It came from Him as speech without it being possible to say how.

Al-Aqidah al-Tahawiyyah – Wikipedia

Those of the Urnmah of Muhammad, may Tahaqi bless him and grant him peacewho have committed grave sins will be in the Fire, but not forever, provided they die and meet Allah as believers affirming His unity even imaam they have not repented.

We hold that obedience to them is part of obedience to Allah, The Glorifiedand therefore obligatory as long as they do not order to commit sins. Allah, the Exaltedhas only charged people with what they are able to do and people are only capable to do what Allah has favoured them. We love the people of justice and trustworthiness, and hate the people of injustice and treachery.

Denying the knowledge which is accessible is disbelief, and claiming the knowledge which is inaccessible is disbelief. We hope that Allah will pardon the people of right action among the believers and grant them entrance into the Garden through His Mercy, but we cannot be certain of this, and tahhawi cannot bear witness that it will definitely happen and that they will be in the Garden.

Likewise, the arguments advanced in refuting the views of sects that have deviated from the Sunnahare also taken from the Holy Qur’an and Sunnah.

We believe in all of this and are certain that everything comes from Him.

No one can ward off His decree or put back His command or overpower His affairs. His angels, His books, His messengers, the Last Day, and belief that the Decree – both the good of it and the evil of it, the sweet of it and the bitter or it – is tahqwi from Allah.

The same applies to all actions done by people, which are done exactly as Allah knew they would be done. It is this type of capability which is the object of the dictates of Shari’ah.

We do not delve into that, trying miam interpret it according to our own opinions or letting our imaginations have free rein.
