The only will that people have is what He wills for them. 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. The seeing of Allah by the people of the Garden is true, without their vision being all-encompassing and without the manner kf their vision being known. In if delusory attempt to investigate the Unseen, he is seeking a secret that can never be uncovered, and he ends up an evil-doer, telling nothing but lies.
He encompasses everything and is above it, and what He has created is incapable of encompassing Him. All of them are subject to His will between either His generosity or His justice. He does whatever He wills and He is never unjust. The learned men of the first community and those who followed in their footsteps – the people of virtue, the narrators of the ahadiththe jurists and analysts- they must only be spoken about in the best way and anyone who says anything bad about them is not on the tahwai path.
We do not say that it was created and we do not go against the Jama’ah of the Muslims regarding it. Allah, the Exaltedsays, “Allah does not charge a person tajawi according to his ability. When our knowledge about something is unclear, we say “Allah knows best”.
We say with belief, acceptance and submission that Allah took Ibrahim as an intimate friend and that He spoke directly to Musa. The grave is either one of the meadows of the Garden or one of the pits of sl Fire. We add to this that there is no stratagem or way by which anyone can avoid a escape disobedience to Allah except with Allah’s help; nor does anyone have the strength to put obedience to Allah into practice and remain firm in it, except if Allah makes it possible for tahawu to do so.
We ask forgiveness for the people of wrong tahzwi among the believers and, although we are afraid for them, we are not in despair about them. He causes death with no fear and restores to life without difficulty. This number will neither be increased nor decreased.
We do not say that any of them will categorically go to either the Garden or the Fire, and we do not accuse any of them of kufr disbeliefshirk associating partners with Allahor nifaq hypocrisyas long as they have not openly demonstrated any of those things.
Allah knew, before the existence of time, the exact a, of those who creef enter the Garden and the exact number of those who would enter the Fire. There is nothing that can overwhelm Him. The same applies to all actions done by people, which are done exactly as Allah knew they would be done. We love the Companions of the Messenger of Allah but we do not go to excess in our love for any one individual among them nor do og disown any one of them.
Hajj and Jihad under the leadership of those in charge of the Muslims, whether they are right or wrong-acting, are continuing obligations until tahswi Last Hour comes.
This in sum is what those of Allah’s friends with enlightened hearts need to know and constitutes the degree of those firmly endowed with knowledge.
Creed of Imam at-Tahawi, The –
This period was the zenith imaj hadith and fiqh studies, and Imam at-Tahawi studied with all the living authorities of the day. We ask Allah crfed make us firm in our belief and seal our lives with it and to protect us from variant ideas, scattering opinions and evil schools of view such as those of the Mushabbihahthe Mu’tazilahthe Jahmiyyahthe Jabriyahthe Qadriyah and others like them who go against the Sunnah and Jama’ah and have allied themselves with error.
He will never perish or come to an end. All who are fortunate are fortunate by the decree of Allah, and those who are wretched are wretched by the decree of Allah. What He wills for them occurs and what He does not will, does not occur. We ask Allah to protect us from all falsehood and we ask His Grace and Favour to do all good.
We believe in the signs of the Hour such as the appearance of the Dajjal and the descent of ‘Isa ibn Maryam, peace be upon himfrom crefd and we believe in the rising of the sun from where it sets and in the emergence of the Beast from the earth. We do not enter into vain talk about Allah nor do we allow any dispute about the religion Of Allah. And Qira’at al-Kitabreading the book, and the reward or punishments and in as-Sirat the Bridge and al-Mizan the Balance.
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 we cannot bear witness crreed it will definitely happen and that they will be in creeed Garden. No one is safe in his religion unless he surrenders himself completely to Allah, the Exalted and Glorifiedand to His Messenger, ikam Allah bless him and grant him peaceand leaves the knowledge of things that are ambiguous to the one who knows them.
We believe in the punishment in the grave for those who deserve it, and in the questioning in the grave by Munkar and Nakir about one’s Lord, one’s religion and one’s prophet, as has come down in ahadith from the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peaceand in reports from the Companions, may Allah rahawi pleased with them all.
A man’s Islam is not secure unless it is based on submission and surrender. So hahawi extremely careful about thinking and reflecting on this matter or letting doubts about it assail you, because Allah has kept knowledge of the decree away from human beings, and forbidden them to enquire about it, saying in His Book, “He is not asked about what He dreed but they are asked.
No one can ward off His decree or put back His command or overpower His affairs. Allah is angered and can be pleased but not in the same way as any creature.
Bringing creation into existence did not add anything to His attributes that was not already there. In the same way that He is the ‘Bringer to life of the dead’, after He has brought them lo life a first time, and deserves this name before bringing them to life, so too He deserves the name of ‘Creator’ before He has created them.
Everything happens according to Allah’s will, taahwi, predestination and decree.
We do not recognise rebellion against our Imam cfeed those in charge of our affairs even if they are unjust, nor do we wish evil on them, nor do we withdraw from following them. No imagination can conceive of Him and no understanding can comprehend Him. Allah says, “Surely religion in the sight of Allah is Islam. And we are certain that Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peaceis His chosen servant and selected Prophet and His Messenger with whom He is well pleased.
We do not accept as true what soothsayers and fortune-tellers say, nor do we accept the claims of those who affirm anything which goes against the Book, the Sunnah and the consensus of the Muslim Ummah. Allah blessed him and granted him peace in this world and the next.
