Brief passages from the reputed books of ahl as-sunnat scholars are quoted for refuting corrupt Wahhabi and la-madhhabiyya beliefs.

Infinite thanks be to Allâhu ta’âlâ! Peace and blessings be on His most beloved Prophet, Muhammad (’alaihi ’s-salâm)! Auspicious prayers be for the pure Ahl al-Bait and for each of the just, faithful Companions, as-Sahâbat al-kirâm (radî-Allâhu ta’âlâ ’anhum ajma’în), of that exalted Prophet!

Allâhu ta’âlâ is Rabb al-’âlamîn. He created every kind of the living things and also the non-living orderly, well-calculated and beneficial. With His attributes Khâliq, Bârî, Musawwir, Badî’ and Hakîm, He created all beings in perfect order and very beautiful. He set relations between them so that they would be orderly and beautiful. He made them reasons, means, and causes for one another so that they would be existent and go on existing. We give names, such as natural events, physical or chemical laws, astronomical formulae and physiological processes to these relations and their being causes of one another. Science is the research into the design, calculations, interactions and relations between the beings created by Allâhu ta’âlâ, and thereafter making use of them.

We pray for the help of Allâhu ta’âlâ so that we may have it reach our dear readers.

Belief and Islam

Belief and Islam

This work, Belief and Islam, originally was written in Persian under the title I’tiqâd-nâma by Hadrât Mawlânâ Khâlid al-Baghdâdî, a profound ‘âlim of Islam and a specialist in ma’ârif of tasawwuf. Hâji Faydullah Effendi of Kemah, a khalîfa of great walî Mavlânâ Mahmûd Sâhib, the brother of the author, translated the book into Turkish and named it Farâid-ul-fawâid which was printed in Istanbul in 1312 A.H.[1894]. Our bookstore had it translated again from the Persian original into Turkish and, some explanations and three chapters, published it with the title Imân ve Islâm in 1966. German, French and Arabic versions are also published by our bookstore. This book, explains five fundamentals of Islam, six fundamentals of îmân and the contemporary information about the matter and refutes those who are against Islam and those who are lâ-madbhabî.

The great walî, the treasure of Allâhu ta’lâlâ’s blessings, superior man in every respect, the master of unattainable knowledge, the light of right, truth and religion
