Publisher's summary

The essence of Islam is its creed, which validates the performance of one’s worship; thus making it eligible for acceptance.  The obligation to have sound doctrine has led Muslim theologians to develop an elaborate discipline of creed based primarily on the Qur’an and Sunnah, whilst also incorporating sound rational argumentation.  This work by Shaykh Aḥmad ibn Zaynī Daḥlān is a summary of the core tenets of faith in the manner of the Late-Sunni Tradition, enumerating what a Muslim should believe regarding Allah; the prophets; the Divine Scriptures; the angels; the Resurrection Day, with its prelude and finale; the Prophet’s Companions and miracles of Allah’s friends.

About the author
