AL AQEEDAH AT TAHAWIYYA

Course Overview

 

Aqeedah (Creed/Beliefs) are the essential elements that one must have firm belief in order to affirm oneself as a Muslim.

 

The success of a human being is dependent on three things:

  • Correction of Beliefs عقائد
  • Correction of Deeds اعم ال
  • Correction of Character اخلاق

 

The most important and fundamental is the correction of our beliefs. The reason is that our deeds and character are directly dependent on our beliefs. If beliefs are correct, then our deeds will be accepted near Allah ﷻ and we will also get reward for our character. However, if our beliefs are not correct, then neither our deeds will be considered, nor we will get any reward for our character. That is why it is so important to know what we should believe in, in order to be called a Muslim.

 

Allah ﷻ has mentioned in the Holy Quran that

And indeed We sent in every nation a messenger, with the message that “Worship Allah and stay away from the Rebel (the Satan).” (16:36)

At another place, Allah ﷻ mentions

Whoever disbelieves in Allah and His angels and His Books and His Messengers and the Last Day has indeed gone far astray. (4:136)
