Course Overview

The course is based on the book Introduction to Islamic Creed (Risālat fi 'Ilm al-Tawhīd), Compiled by Imam Ibrahim al-Bajuri. As a response to a request, Imam al-Bajuri outlines the core beliefs of the orthodox Sunni doctrine (Aqidah) that must be known to every Muslim. Designed to be studied with a teacher or read on one's own, this text will equip the students with sufficient knowledge of the essentials of Muslim theology to be able to distinguish truth from falsehood, orthodox from heterodox, and Sunni Islam (Ahl al-Sunna wa al-Jama'a) from other than it.

We hope that by including the vocalised Arabic script will;

  • Aid the students of Sacred Knowledge in learning the language of the Qur'an, the Prophet (saws), and the ulama.
  • Serve as a teaching aid for the ulama when teaching this text, to reference the original work, and
  • Preserve the original words of Imam al-Bajuri.

Besides, this comprehensive book will equip the students of knowledge to rationally answer many objections posed by groups against Islamic theology like atheists and agnostics, by providing a framework through which they can understand the principles of their creed.
