The basis of a sound `Aqidah

A: The `Aqidah of Tawhid (belief in the Oneness of Allah) is the basis upon which a Muslim has to build (Part No. 2; Page No. 431) his good deeds. It is the creed taken from the Book of Allah and the Sunnah (whatever is reported from the Prophet) of His Messenger (peace be upon him). Moreover, it is the creed of the Salaf (righteous predecessors). It is clarified in the authentic books compiled by eminent Muslim scholars, such as the Creed of Imam Al-Tahawy and its Explanation by Al-`Izz ibn `Abul-`Izz, Al-`Aqidah Al-Wasitiyah by the Shaykh of Islam Ibn Taymiyyah and Kitabul-Tawhid (Book of Monotheism) by Shaykh Muhammad ibn `Abdul-Wahhab and its explanation Fat-hul-Majid. You should read such books with authorized scholars from Ahl-ul-Sunnah (those adhering to the Sunnah), in order for them to explain them for you.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
