Book Release: The Creed and Way of Muslim Orthodoxy

A compilation of three texts: Illumination of the Creed by Imam Muwaffaq ud-Din Ibn Qudamah, Nasafi's Creed by Imam Abu Hafs An-Nasafi and The Splendid Pearl of the Orthodox Creed by Imam Ahmad ibn Muhammad Ad-Dardir, translated by Al-Hajj Abu Ja'far Al-Hanbali (Spire Publishing, 2011)

The core of Islam is theology. Most of the Qur'an and Sunnah deal with theology and creedal points. It is therefore fitting that for the first time - and long overdue - a catalogue of Muslim creeds has been translated and annotated with Arabic text into the English language. These three creeds - never before brought into contemporary English - will give any reader, Muslim or not, a concise but profound elucidation of the beliefs of the Vast Majority of Muslims in every era according to the agreed upon creedal formulations of Imams Ahmad ibn Hanbal, Abu Mansur al-Maturidi and Abul Hasan al-Ash`ari.

This book is available from Amazon UK and Amazon US. If you are outside the US and UK please check the Amazon site for your country or region.
