This is a brief presentation concerning the fundamentals and principles of the Creed of Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jama'ah. It was compiled in response to many readers - students of knowledge and average Muslims - who have expressed the need for a concise and clear presentation of the fundamentals and rules of the Creed of the Salaf as-Salih. Evidences from the Qur’an and authentic Sunnah have been mentioned throughout the treatise so that the student of knowledge may learn, memorise and act in accordance to them.
This treatise is based on the works of Shaykh Abdul-Aziz bin Marzouq at-Tarefe. We have primarily relied upon the book he has written on the subject of Aqidah – Chapters on Belief (Fusool fil-Aqidah). The chapters have been summarised and referenced to the original source.
