as-Salaamu `Alaikum wa Rahmatullah,
Allah has blessed us yet again to have made a three release in one book, perhaps the first of its’ kind in its’ genre. Here for the first time in English under one cover is the Creed and Way of Muslim Orthodoxy.
Featured in its’ pages are the three creeds. It begins first with the agreed upon and first creed of Muslim Orthodoxy: that of Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal, may Allah be pleased with him.
Thereafter, the other two creeds of the later ages are put in their historical order, Imams Abu Mansur al-Maturidi and Abul Hasan al-Ash`ari.
These creeds, vowelled with Arabic on one page and English the other, can be used in madrasahs, ma`ahads, after school clubs, reference settings, university of college reports or even for personal enrichment by a believer or non-believer-male or female-there is something that will be of use in this manual.
We ask that Allah accept this offer from us and give us with means to do more unique and ground breaking works to serve the Ummah. Amin.
And with Allah is every success.
Al-Hajj Abu Ja`far al-Hanbali
