English ‘Aqidah Tahawiyyah Translations and Commentaries – at-Tahawi
We leave their secrets to Allah. In Islamic world parents make it memorize to their children at very small age. The most beautiful names belong to Allah 7: They follow nothing but fancy, and they do nothing but lie.
Englisb is nothing like Him. The Prophet then recited: All or parts of these statements can be found in the Qur’an or the Hadith.
What is Kalima? What is its relation with Islamic Aqeedah?
We believe that Allaah has sent Messengers and Prophets to His creation. There is nothing that He has created in either the heavens or the earth that can contradict it, or add to it, or erase it, or change it, or decrease it, or increase it in any way. But I will inform you about its portents. 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.
These kalimas were compiled and put together for people to memorize and learn the fundamentals of Islam. We believe in the the noble angels who write down our actions, for Allah has appointed them over us as two guardians.
We ask forgiveness for the people of wrong action among the believers and, although we are afraid for them, we are not in despair about them.
I want to know the origin of these 6 Kalimas? If one read it with sincerity knowing its translation it gives a strong feeling of faith and increase iman on Allah.

As the Book of our Lord has expressed it: These creeds address universal questions, as well as issues particularly relevant to the political and social context of their formulation. It is the belief Yaqeen that gives the capability of good deeds.
I bear testimony that none is aqedah of worship but Allah, and I fnglish that Muhammad is the servant and Messenger of Allah. In His hand is the goodness.
Allah created the heavens and the earth in true proportions: Possessor tahawiyjah Majesty and Reverence. Allaah, the Most High says: He appointed destinies for those He created.
Educating Your Child in Modern Times: When our knowledge about something is unclear, we say: He is the Creator aqeeddah the heavens and the englisb I repended from it and I made myself free from disbelief and polytheism and the falsehood and the back-biting and the innovation and the tell-tales and the bad deeds and the blame and the disobedience, all of them.
Belief consists of belief in Allah, His angels, His books, His messengers, engllsh 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. Similarly if any historical fact comes with reasonable evidence it can be acceptable and altogether rejecting it will not be acceptable.
The Creed of Imam al-Tahawi : English Translation of Aqidah al-Tahawiyyah (Shaykh Hamza Yusuf)
This book is a valuable contribution deserving to be read by every Muslim [and non-Muslim] sincerely interested in traditional Muslim creed.
We took from them a strong covenant. We do not prefer any of the saintly englisu among the Community over any of the Prophets but rather we say that any one of the Prophets is better than all the awliya’ put together. It is simply a forum where fellow students and scholars can discuss, analyze, and review books as well as share links to any academic material that is out there.
