The Garden and the Fire are created things that never come to an end and we believe that Allah created them before the rest of creation and then created people to inhabit each of them. We hope that Allah will pardon the people of right action among the believers and txhawiyyah 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 Al-aqdedah. Everybody acts in accordance with what is destined for him and goes towards what he has been created for.

He is the one who has been sent to all the jinn and all mankind with truth and guidance and with light and illumination. We do not prefer any of the saintly men among the Ummah over any of the Prophets but rather we say that any one of the Prophets is better than all zl-aqeedah awliya’ put together.

In his delusory attempt to investigate the Unseen, he is seeking a secret that can never be uncovered, and he ends up an evil-doer, telling nothing but lies. He encompasses everything and is above it, and what He has created is incapable of encompassing Him. We agree with doing the prayer behind any of ql-aqeedah people of the qiblah whether right-acting or wrong-acting, and doing the funeral prayer over any of them when they die.

Certainty and despair both remove one from the religion, but the path of truth for the people of the qiblah lies between the two e.

Sharh Al-Aqeedah At-Tahawiyyah – English – Abu Jafar at-Tahawi

He was one of the trustworthy, sincere and a haafiz. They call them faculties and parts, and deny that Allaah possesses them.

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 does whatever He wills and He is never unjust.

Ibn Abi’l ‘Izz al-Hanafi – al ‘Aqeedah at-Tahawiyyah

He gives guidance to whoever He wills, and protects them, and keeps them safe from harm, out of His generosity; and He leads astray whoever He wills, and abases them, and afflicts them, out of His justice.

His will overpowers all other wills and His decree overpowers all stratagems. We do not enter into vain talk about Allah nor do we allow any dispute about the religion Of Allah.

All the believers are ‘friends’ of Allah and the noblest of them in the sight of Allah are those who are the most obedient and who most closely follow the Qur’an. Allah the Exalted says: Al-Shifa’ah, the intercession, which is stored up for Muslimsis true, as related in the consistent and confirmed Ahadith.
