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.
