Good and evil have both been decreed for people. We hope that Allah will pardon the taahawi 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 that it will definitely happen and that they will be in the Garden.
We believe in Kiraman Katibin the noble angels who write down our actions for Allah has appointed umam over us as two guardians. Belief is, at base, the same for everyone, but the superiority of some over others in it is due to their fear and awareness of Allah, their opposition to their desires, and their choosing what is more pleasing to Allah. Allah responds to people’s supplications and gives them what they ask for. He was always the Lord even when there was nothing to be Lord of, and always the Creator even when there was no creation.
Belief consists of affirmation lay the tahawwi and acceptance by the heart. Allah knew, before the existence of time, the exact number of those who would enter the Garden and the exact number of those who would enter the Fire. Allah ennobled him in the way that He ennobled him and revealed to him what He revealed to him “and his heart was not mistaken about what it saw” [ Al-Qur’an The capability in terms of Tawfiq Divine Grace and Favour which makes an action certain to occur cannot be ascribed to a created being.
The Qur’an is the word of Allah.
Allah warns him and censures him and threatens him with Fire when He says, Exalted is He”I will burn him in the Fire. We add to this that there is no stratagem or way by which anyone can avoid or 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 them to do so.
And that he is the seal of the prophets and the Imam of the godfearing and the most honoured of all the messengers and the beloved of the Lord of all the Worlds. He will he subject to whisperings and find himself confused and full of doubt, being neither an accepting believer nor a denying rejector. Hajj and Jihad under the leadership of those in charge of the Muslims, whether they are right or wrong-acting, are continuing obligations until the Last Hour comes.
And if all created beings were to gather together to make something exist which Allah had not written on it, they would not be able to do so. We ask Allah to 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.
It was not only after the act of creation that He could be described as ‘the Creator’ nor was it only by the act of origination that He could he described as ‘the Originator’. Nor do we say that the wrong action of a man who has belief does not have a harmful effect on him. This period was the zenith of hadith and fiqh studies, and Imam at-Tahawi studied with all the living authorities of the day.
Love of them is a part of Islam, part of belief and part of excellent behaviour, while hatred of them is unbelief, hypocrisy and rebelliousness.
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 heaven and we believe in the rising of the sun from where it sets and in the emergence of the Beast from the earth. Allah blessed him and granted him peace in this world and the next.

As regards the sects mentioned in this work, a study rahawi Islamic history up to the time of Imam at-Tahawi would be quite helpful. He sent it down on His Messenger as revelation. 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.
A man’s Islam is not secure unless it is based on submission and surrender. All of them are subject to His will between either His generosity or His justice. For these doctrines shared by Ahl us-Sunnah wal-Jama’ah owe their origin to the Holy Qur’an and consistent and confirmed ahadith – the undisputed primary sources of Islam.

Such study helps one to better understand the Islamic doctrines and avoid the deviations of the past or the present. His angels, His books, His messengers, the Last Day, and belief that the Decree – both the good of it and the evil of it, the sweet of it and the bitter or it – is all from Allah.
This number will neither be increased nor decreased. Nothing can annul or controvert them. He allotted to them fixed life spans. Those who are fortunate are fortunate by the decree of Allah, and those who are wretched are wretched by the decree of Allah.
