Aqeedah

In the Name of Allâh, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

Aqidah linguistically is derived from the term aqada. In Arabic, one states, "Aqada the rope" when the rope is tied firmly. And, "Aqada the sale" or "He settled the sale" when the person ratifies and contracts a sale or agreement. And Allah says in the Quran, "And as for those whom your right hands have made a covenant (Ar., aqadat)" [Al-Nisa 33]. And Allah also says, "But He will take you to task for the oaths which you swear in earnest (Ar., aqadtum) [Al-Maida, 89] which means asserted and adhered to, as proven in the verse, "And break not oaths after the assertion of them" [An-Nahl, 91]. If one says, "Aqadtu such and such," it means his heart is firm upon such and such.

Therefore, Aqidah or I'tiqad according to the scholars of Islam is: The firm creed that one's heart is fixed upon without any wavering or doubt. It excludes any supposition, doubt or suspicion...

Kitaab At-Tawheed Explained



Author: Ibn Abdul Wahhab | Pages: 352 | Size: 16 MB

The most important subject for a Muslim to comprehend is Allahs monotheism and the full implications of that belief, as without that, no act of worship or good deed is accepted by Allah, nor rewarded in the hereafter.

Author: Ibn 'Izz Al-Hanafi | Pages: 150 Each | Size: 14 MB Each

Commentary by Allamah Ibn 'Izz Al-Hanafi on Imam Tahawi's Al-Aqeedah At-Tahawiyah. About the Author: A Hanafi Jurist, born in Taha (that's where Tahawi came from), a town in Upper Egypt.

Explanation of al-Aqeedatul-Hamawiyyah



Author: Saaleh al-'Uthaymeen | Pages: 139 | Size: 1 MB

By Imaam Muhammad Ibn Saaleh al-'Uthaymeen. Allah upholds His religion with His close helpers upon whom He bestows Eemaan, knowledge, and wisdom by which they prevent these enemies. They repel their plot back against their own throats. So no one ever comes out with his innovation except that Allaah and for this deserves praise and thanks destines to send someone from Ahlus-Sunnah who refutes and disproves his innovation and extinguishes it. He has many works on the clarification and explanation of the Sunnah, the reinforcement of its pillars, and the destruction of innovations. One of the works on this subject is his al-Fatwaa al-Hamawiyyah which he wrote as an answer to a question presented to him in the Hijrah year of 698 from Hamaah, a place in ash-Shaam. In it, he was asked what the scholars and Imaams of the religion say concerning the Aayaat and the Ahaadeeth of the Sifaat, or the attributes and characteristics of Allaah. So he answered in about 83 pages and due to which, he suffered trials and afflictions. May Allaah reward him on behalf of Islaam and the Muslims with the best of rewards. Due to the difficulty in understanding and comprehending this answer from many readers, I wanted to summarize the most important points from it along with some other needed additions. I have named it Fathu Rabb-il-Bariyyah bi-Talkhees al-Hamawiyyah.

Explanation to the Beautiful and Perfect Names of Allah



Author: Abdu-r-Rahman Nasir As-Sa'di | Pages: 109 | Size: 2 MB

Allah's Most Beautiful Names and Lofty Attributes



Author: Muhammad Ibn Khalifah al-Tamimi | Pages: 153 | Size: 5 MB

Among the subjects that have not been adequately covered in the English language, perhaps the most important of them is the one covered in the pages of this book. The author 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. Besides outlining the principles and foundations of this creed he also highlights some of the foreign ideas and deviant concepts that have crept into the hearts and minds. The style in which this book has been written relates more to a textbook than to a book for casual reading. The author has carefully structured the book, divided it into clearly headed sections and provided all the necessary definitions and explanations that will facilitate a clear understanding of this immensely important branch of knowledge.

Book of the End - Great Trials & Tribulations



Author: Ibn Kathir | Pages: 749 | Size: 38 MB

Like everything, the present universe will also come to an end, and it is a part of our faith to believe in the Last Day. The signs of the Day of Judgment have been foretold by our Prophet (S). Ibn Kathir has collected all the prophesies of the Prophet (S) in his book Al-Bidaayah wan-Nihaayah. In this volume, we have presented from them the signs of the Hour and the events that are yet to take place, although mentioning very few examples of those prophesies that have already been realized.




This is our Aqeedah



Author: Abu Muhammad Al-Maqdisi | Pages: 72 | Size: 1 MB

This is our aqidah . Whoever possesses two eyes then let him read and whoever possesses hearing then let him listen! All praise is for Allah, the Lord of the worlds, the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful, the Master of the Day of Judgment. May the salah and the salam be upon the seal of the Prophets and Messengers and upon all of his family and companions. To proceed: This is a summary of what we believe in and what we worship Allah with from the most important areas of the din . I wrote it in my jail cell after it had reached me that there were some people who were ascribing things to us and putting words in our mouths that we have never said; in particular, in the areas of kufr and iman . Before this, I was never concerned with writing about the likes of this subject. That is because our scholars have sufficed and fulfilled in that.




Allah (swt) Governance on Earth



Author: Abu Hamza | Pages: 342 | Size: 1 MB

Taken from author's introduction, ' I hope that you on reading these words are found to be in sound health and strong imaan. Due to the absence of books in English regarding Tawhid-ul-Haakimiyyah it was deemed necessary to put together this large research work on the subject. We were also grieved to find that this subject was not being given the attention that it deserves by shaikhs, maulanas, mosque committees and the average Muslim. Along with this, and the negligence of the scholars and their adherents in presenting the ails of the Ummah and giving the workable solutions, we saw the impending reality of putting together a research covering the most common controversy today, the Shari`ah and its implementation.'




The Friends of Allah & The Friends of Shaytan



Author: Ibn Taymiyyah | Pages: 134 | Size: 1 MB

The Decisive Criterion between the Awliyaa of The Most Merciful and the Awliyaa of Shaytaan Indeed the enmity between man and Shaytaan is old, commencing from the time that Adam (alayhi as-salaam) was created, from the time he was ordered to prostrate to him. Shaytaan refused, become arrogant and hence disobeyed his Lord. His arrogance and pride let him to commit a whole host of sins, it made him expend every effort in misleading the children of Adam and made him beautify and embellish sins such that they accepted them and eagerly committed them Due to this Allah the exalted revealed the Books sent the Messenger and enjoined His servants to various injunctions and admonitions in order to secure them from the evil of Shaytaan. In the light of His advice, profound injunctions and admonitions in order to secure them from the evil of Shaytaan. In the light of His advice, profound injunctions and sever warnings, mankind becomes separated into two groups: a group who were guided and a group who deserved to be misguided. The groups who were guided are the inhabitants of Paradise and the groups who were misguided are the denizens of the Fire. The inhabitants of Paradise are the Awliyaa of the Most Merciful and the denizens of the Fire are the Awliyaa of Shaytaan.

An Authentic Selection from Imam Al-Qurtubi's At-Tadhkirah Fiahwalil-Mawta Wal-Akhirah


Death is not the absolute end. It is just the discontinuation of unity between the body and soul. It is a change from one state to another and a transition from this present life to that of the hereafter

The Tawhid Of Action



Author: Abdullah Yusuf Azzam | Pages: 13 | Size: 1 MB

While living in Afghanistan, I have realized that Tawhid can not pernetrate into the soul of the human being, nor will it intensify and strengthen - the way it does in the fields of Jihad. This is the Tawhid, regarding which the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said 'I was sent before the hour with the sword...' Why? 'So that Allah is worshipped Alone with no partners with Him.'

The Signs Before the Day of Judgement



Ibn Kathir

Faith in Predestination (Qada Wa Qadar)



Dr. Suhaib Hasan

Belief in predestination (Qada wa Qadar) is an undisputed article of faith in Islam. For some people, this belief leads to contentment and satisfaction, even in the face of hardship and adversity. But for others, it provides justification for their wrongdoing: how often do we hear people arguing that they should not be blamed for their disobedience since it has already be decreed by Allah that they will sin?




The World of the Angels



Author: Sheikh Abdul-Hamid Kishk | Pages: 98 | Size: 6 MB

The World of the Angels is an example of traditional learning and its translation fills a much needed gap in aqida (beliefs) literature in the English speaking world Basing himself exclusively on the Quran and Hadith, Sheikh Kishk deals with every aspect of the angelic world. He goes from discussing the creation. tbnm and nature of the angels to enumerating their many different types and also explains their role in existence and the character of their interaction with the human race. An in depth understanding of the nature and activity of the angels is essential for the people of today. Particularly in the face of the onslaught of scientific materialism which has done so much to weaken the bases of belief in this time. This book should help a great deal towards this end.
