Sunni Courses are honoured to be able to hold an online 'Aqida Tahawiyya course with the noble Shaykh Abul Hasan Hussain Ahmed (hafidhahullah). Students (male or female) from across the globe will get the opportunity to benefit immensely from this 10-12 weeks structured course.

About the Text

The creed of Imam al-Tahawi, al Bayan al Sunnah wa'l Jama'ah, commonly known as the Al Aqida al-Tahawiyya is the masterpiece on the Aqida of Ahl as Sunna wa'l Jama'ah penned by the renowned 3rd Century Theologian, Muhaddith and jurist, Imam Abu Ja'far Ahmad bin Muhammad al-Azdi al-Tahawi al-Hanafi.

Tahawi's "Doctrine" (al-`Aqida), though small in size, is a basic text for all times, listing what a Muslim must know and believe and inwardly comprehend. There is consensus among the Companions, the Successors and all the leading Islamic authorities such as the four Imams and their authoritative followers on the doctrines enumerated in this work, which are entirely derived from the undisputed primary sources of Religion, the Holy Qur'an and the confirmed Hadith. Being a text on Islamic doctrine, this work sums up the arguments set forth in those two sources to define sound belief, and likewise, the arguments advanced in refuting the views of sects that have deviated from the Sunna.

In this course students will have the opportunity to

• Listen to the Shaykh giving live Dars on ‘Aqida Tahawiyya with a comprehensive commentary and make notes on every point.

• Interactively ask Shaykh any questions related to ‘Aqida and get them answered

• Learn the full text under the Shaykh who has complete chains (Isnad) going back to Imam at-Tahawi and his “Bayan al Sunnah wa’l Jama’ah” (commonly known as ‘Aqidah Tahawiyya)

About the Author:
Imam Abu Ja`far Ahmad ibn Muhammad al-Azdi, known as Imam Tahawi after his birthplace in Egypt, is among the most outstanding authorities of the Islamic world on hadith and jurisprudence (fiqh). He lived at a time when both the direct and indirect disciples of the Four Imams of law were teaching and practicing. This period was the greatest age of Hadith and fiqh studies, and Imam Tahawi studied with all the living authorities of the day. Al-Badr al-`Ayni said that when Ahmad died, Tahawi was 12; when Bukhari died, he was 27; when Muslim died, he was 32; when Ibn Majah died, he was 44; when Abu Dawud died, he was 46; when Tirmidhi died, he was fifty; when Nisa'i died, he was 74.

About the Shaykh:

The Shaykh has taken Ijazat (permits of scholarly authorisation) under more than 40 scholars around the world, and more specifically in the Middle East, namely Syria, Jordan, Morocco, Lebanon and also the Hijaz under great scholars like the late Shaykh Hussain Usayran (rah), Shaykh Adib Kallas (Hanafi Aqida specialist d.2009), Shaykh Abdur Razzaq al-Halabi (A great Qari who has some of the shortest chains back to the 10 recitals of the Qur’an), Shaykh Wahbi Ibn Sulayman al-Ghawiji al-Albani, Shaykh Nadir al-Arkani al-Makki (over 125 years old), the late Shaykh Muhammad al-Wazzani (aged over 134 years - through whom he has some of the shortest chains of Transmission in Hadith d.2009), the late female Muhadditha of Morocco, Sayyida Nafisa al-Kattaniyya (rah) and many other eminent scholars of this era.
