Course Description:

The correctness of aqeedah is the most fundamental of principles in Islam, all subsequent acts of worship in Islam depend upon it, as Allah says in the Qur’an:
“But if they had joined in worship others with Allah, all that they used to do would have been of no benefit to them.” – Al-An’am 6:88

This course is arguably one of the most important and significant courses offered by MIU, students will learn about the importance of correct beliefs and how the classical scholars of Islam developed this into a subject of study to preserve the correct beliefs of Islam. In line with our commitment to legacy of the great scholars of the past and their classical works, MIU brings you the universally acclaimed timeless classic Aqeedah al-Raziyain.

In this book, the two colossi in the science of hadith from the Salaf, Abu Hatim al-Razi (d.277 AH) and Abu Zur’ah al-Razi (d.264 AH) describe the creed that they found the scholars agreeing to, by consensus, throughout the lands they traveled to. They explain in general, the foundation of the prophetic Sunnah in terms of belief and doctrine, whist highlighting and pointing out that which opposes it by citing other deviant sects and ideologies. This work received the consensus of agreement from all the scholars upon the Sunnah in their time, and has been taught throughout the centuries up until the current day.
